Awesome Cover Friday: Jonah Hex Style!

Jonah Hex is a badass. He's one of my favorite badasses. More information about Jonah Hex can be found on the internet. For example, check out Dwayne, The Canoe Guy's blog. It's badass, too. I am really enjoying Palmiotti and Gray's current Jonah Hex series but all of the covers below are from Hex's earlier series which ran from 1977 to 1985 'cause that's how we roll, here at NC.


I love this cover because it sums up so much of the Hex ethos. Jonah gets beat-to-hell more than any comic character I can think of and he always finds a way to exact revenge. You do not want to taunt Jonah. Seriously, your last words should be something more profound than "What are you gonna do now, Hex?".


If you don't see the inherent awesomeness of a bounty hunter fighting a big cat there's nothing I can do for you.


This one is awesome simply for introducing the phrase "Blood Wedding" into the lexicon. You know that scene in Kill Bill? Yeah, it's gonna be like that. Except more.

Bonus Cover! Swedish Reprint #4!

Separately they are

Jonah Hex.

A Katana.

The Swedish Language.

Put them all together and they spell absolutely fantastic.
