The return of horse opera's butt-ugliest leading man: Jonah Hex in 'ALL-STAR WESTERN'

(art by Moritat)

DC Comics' most venerable and visually-repellent western protagonist — he can't exactly be called a hero, and he'd probably punch you in the face if you referred to him as such — is back for "the New 52" relaunch in All-Star Western #1. Hitting the stands on September 28th, this new series is written by the critically-acclaimed team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, who returned the character to prominence in recent years with the eponymous (and long-running) Jonah Hex, and the art is handled by Moritat (The Spirit). Here's the spin on the new run:

Even when Gotham City was just a one-horse town, crime was rampant – and things only get worse when bounty hunter Jonah Hex comes to town. Can Amadeus Arkham, a pioneer in criminal psychology, enlist Hex's special brand of justice to help the Gotham Police Department track down a vicious serial killer?

Find out on September 28th!
