Overview

Jonah Hex, a mysterious bounty hunter and thinking man's killer, was a hero to some and a villain to others - and his name was spoken in whispers. He had no friends but he did have two companions: one was death and the other: the smell of gun smoke. Jonah Hex has dealt with some wicked, vile people in his time, but never has he met someone who managed to get under his skin quite like the bandit known as Loco. Most bounties don't upset Hex, but this time, as they say, it's personal. And a pivotal piece of Hex's past is revealed in a special stand-alone story.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Gray and Palmiotti collaborate with several artists in a series of independent tales of uneven quality in this compilation of horror western tales. The stories take place at various points in the career of Old West bounty hunter Jonah Hex, who is known for having the devil’s own luck, and vary in tone, with the redemption story, “Snowblind,” lifting up the bleaker tales, “Bury Me in Hell,” in which Hex hunts and tortures a necrophiliac pedophile, and “Casket Canyon,” in which a widow feeds her starving children the flesh of dead men. The art also varies dramatically in style; Fiona Staples (“Casket Canyon”) uses a realistic style that lends horror to the sunken faces of the starving characters, while Jeff Lemire’s (“Old Man”) stylized version of Hex’s mangled face produces a touching moment as Hex buries the father who forsook him. “Weird Western,” the final story, relies most heavily on the rest of the Hex mythology, jumping in and out of Hex’s time line. The collection will appeal most to those already familiar with Hex, but those new to the series may be intrigued enough to seek out more. (Dec.)
