One of my favourite books which I often wonder why people aren’t reading. So I thought I’d post 5 points as to why everyone should read Jonah Hex
1) Done in One. It’s a brilliant thing, as most of the issues are complete within themselves. There’s no need to worry about years and years (or decades) of continuity, there are no crossovers, you can pick up an issue and that is all you need.
2) Amazing artists. From Darwyn Cooke to Jordi Bernet to Edward Risso, there’s a long list of artists on Jonah Hex that make any comic fan drool.
3) The stories. Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray tell amazing stories. There seems to be no end of them with Hex. I honestly believe they could tell these stories forever.
4) Westerns. I grew up loving westerns. I grew up watching them with my dad and JH fills a western need in my soul. It’s a genre that’s under-represented in comics, in fact most genres are. And I want to support this one.
5) An amoral hero. There is nothing better than an anti-hero. For all that Jonah is a mercenary for hire, he has a morality that cannot be denied.
It’s a book I love, and it’s a book I feel you all should give a chance. Because it’s one of the best books I read, and the art is stunning and amazing.
