Portrait of a Gunslinger's Good Side

"Portrait of a Gunslinger's Good Side" from Jonah Hex: Riders of the Worm and Such #1 (Vertigo, 1995) by Joe R. Lansdale, Timothy Truman and Sam Glanzman
Jonah's return was under the Vertigo banner where western/horror writer Joe R. Lansdale and artist Tim Truman crafted three weird supernatural mini-series for him, starting with Two-Gun Mojo. And it suited Hex quite well! One of my favorite things was Hex giving different explanations for his disfigurement every time he was asked, a shtick taken up by the Joker in The Dark Knight. Hex conquered that frontier first, folks.

    The Vertigo tales of Hex were pretty good.
