Weird Western Tales #20: Jonah Hex (1973)

Jonah Hex was one bad-ass cowboy. With an enormous scar on his face that matched the scars in his soul, Hex was the perfect anti-hero for an age that rejected heroes. Hex was a bounty hunter, always looking for his next dollar and caring little for the people he helped – unless they deserved his attention.
And many of the people he liked ended up betraying him. Like the woman in this issue, who’s happy to see Hex before it seems he’ll somehow mess up her happy lifestyle. When that happens, she fights like a tigress to defend her interests.
In Hex comics, everyone was self-involved. There was no real hero of most stories; instead, most stories were about survival and making a few dollars more. It’s kind of refreshing to read a comic like thyat.
