One of the niche titles to emerge from DC’s New 52, All Star Western’s tales of Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham have told some pretty good stories in its run so far.

Or – “He Died With His Boots On…” I’ve occasionally talked about how the future setting has allowed the creators of Legion of Super-Heroes to take risks that other books couldn’t, such as the death of Ferro Lad, or the weddings of several major characters.  Likewise, Jonah Hex has the benefit of living in our past, meaning that his entire LIFE is history.  Thus, the story of how Jonah died was told within a decade of his creation, and the spectre of that death has resonated through every Hex story since… I’ll say this, though:  It ain’t pretty.

I’ve been back and forth on Jonah Hex since its return some 68 issues ago, but I do know I’m excited to see what happens in All-Star Western #1 that features Hex arriving in Gotham City in the 1800s. In ALL-STAR WESTERN #1, Jonah Hex is enlisted to help the Gotham Police Department solve the mystery of a vicious serial killer. “So much for Gotham being a one-horse town. Look at that dazzling city in the late 1800’s meticulously researched and brought to life by Moritat. Hex fans, you can relax. We’re not going to abandon seventy issues of dedication

Last week was Jonah Hex week at Comic Twart, and Tom Fowler stepped up to the plate with really great rendition of the scarred hero of the old west. Take the jump for the full image, and if you have a moment, cover up half your screen to see the clean vs. the torn up face to see how great the image, and the character are.

DC made a wise decision to couple lesser know DC characters with their big name movie releases. Tagged onto Batman: Under the Red Hood is Jonah Hex, and it’s certainly better than its live action equivalent.

If at first you don’t succeed, take the animated role. Therein lies the lesson of Thomas Jane’s quest to play the role of comic book anti-hero Jonah Hex. The star of HBO’s popular series Hung once lobbied to play the theatrical role of Jonah Hex and, though he fell short in that attempt, Jane has found another path to the character as the disfigured cowboy’s voice in the DC Showcase Original Short, Jonah Hex.

Or – “Named For The Roman God Martius, God Of War…”   Not to be confused with famed Martian general Marvin, whose computers are so complex and naughty… Traditionally, this month has signaled the beginning of the season of military campaigns, and also the time when college basketball generals lead their troops unto the field of battle. For me, working in small-market TV for as long as I did, it’s a month which signals mighty pains in the butt, which explains why this is technically the FEBRUARY edition of RFR. We apologize for the inconvenience… Better to just press on.

Or – “Fifty Issue, Fifty Graves…” I’m actually remarkably impressed at the longevity of this book in a climate where even superhero titles are tanking with regularity.  It’s most assuredly not just a “superhero with guns instead of capes” title, focusing on a protagonist who doesn’t even like HIMSELF, and a rotating cast of misfits, rogues and malcontents who don’t really like him either.  This issue marks an important milestone for Jonah Hex, both for the title and for the man himself…
