Jonah Hex is one heck of a gunfighter — and he might just be one of the ugliest men in the Old West.
With a nearly dead left eye and scars up and down that same cheek, Hex sure isn’t a pretty picture, but he does get the job done as a bounty hunter, hunting down both those who’ve broken the law and, as often as he can, those who’ve wronged him.
Now writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, ably aided by artists Jordi Bernet, Phil Noto, Val Semeiks and others, are ready to give readers a glimpse into Hex’s past and just how some of that damage to his face got done. Better still, it all ties together into his latest bounty hunt in a nice little bow.
All this and Hex finds the girl of his dreams: Scarred, savage and sexy.
Jonah Hex continues to be one of the better Western comics around, packed with emotion, intrigue and the sweet smell of gunpowder wafting in the wind.
