Jonah Hex: No Way Back
To celebrate the release of the feature film DC simultaneously
realeased an original Jonah Hex graphic novel, created by writing
team of Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti paired with legendary Hex
artist Tony DeZuniga.
"Jonah Hex has a brother," Gray revealed. "That's the idea that came up decades earlier in discussions between writer John Albano and Tony DeZuniga. Tony casually mentioned this to us and that idea has been brought to life in the hardcover. Bold, brazen violent and surprisingly tender, this is the consummate tale of the Wild West's greatest bounty hunter."
"This is the first all original Jonah Hex graphic novel and a dream project for us," Palmiotti said. "Jonah is one of the coolest and most unique characters we have ever had the pleasure to work on. He's an icon for all ages and his untamed manner appeals, on a visceral gut level, to just about everyone who reads it. In this, Hex's first original graphic novel, we unleash the beast like you have never seen before."
Discover how Jonah Hex's rough family life
transformed him into the justice-thirsty vigilante he became.
Legendary Hex artist Tony DeZuniga returned to illustrate an
archetypal epic written by the HEX team of Jimmy
Palmiotti and Justin Gray. This heartbreaking, brutal original
graphic novel is set against the unforgiving landscape of the Wild
West and delves into Hex's painful past, revealing
how his difficult upbringing made him that era's most feared
bounty hunter. Along the way, Hex must come to terms with the death
of a loved one, long thought lost, battle El Papagayo and his gang
of bandits, and attempt to make peace with his own past.
