Jonah Hex: Classic Tales
The cover says Jonah Hex: Classic Tales, the spine says Jonah Hex: Welcome to Paradise. So take your pick. This collects 9 of the early Jonah Hex tales from Weird Western, published by DC Comics. Most of these appeared in the first volume of the big Showcase volume DC published a few years back, but they appear in color here. A nice sampling of scripters and artists: John Albano and Michael Fleisher for the former, Tony deZuniga, Doug Wildey, Noly Panaligan, George Moliterni, and the great Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez for the latter. Good, solid storytelling in the western comics tradition.
