At last, the classic comic Jonah Hex have arrived in a collection. I have waited for years....

The comic started late sixities, and the inspiration was clearly Leone. It is dark, grim, gritty, extremely violent - but also exciting and funny. The collection runs the classic stories. Sadly, in black and white. The colors were always moody and cool, and I miss them. On the other hand, black and white makes it pretty inexpensive.

A great read, warmly recommended for spaghetti-fans who can enjoy a good comic.

Or what, HEX?  Wink

none of these links lead to the new comic. what gives? however this is good news anyway, i had heard about this since last year and wasnt sure when they would be coming out.

perhaps because of these new comics maybe the public will recognize the character more(not just die-hard fans) and maybe he will get so popular we can have that movie script that has been floating around since 1999 finally be made into a feature, but that is highly doubtful.
i am sure this comic will be purchased by fans only(such as myself) and it will be run underground.

The first links leads to the trade paperback. 

I read that Jonah has gotten himself a new monthly title, after years underground or in the very good but rare graphic novels. The new monthly is unavailable to me in Norway, though. 

But perhaps this might spark some new interest in the character, not only from die-hard fans. Which could lead to a movie. Still, after seeing what they did to Blueberry when he was brought to the screen, they might as well leave Jonah in the comics.

From what I understand, Hex is something of a guest star in his own collection.  Too bad, as DC is capable of doing definitive trades when the urge strikes them.

For those interested in Italo-Western-styled comics, I'd suggest looking for Blaze of Glory and Apache Skies, by Ostrander and Manco.  Neither are perfect, but they do get the job done.

Remeber the Mad Magazine send-off of the spaghettis?  I think it was called something like A Fistful of Lasagna, For a Few Ravioli More?  I have it at home somewhere, anybody put int on pdf?
