Raised by the Apache, former Confederate soldier turned bounty
hunter, Jonah Hex has taken it upon himself to dispatch as
many sinners, thieves and killers as hell can accommodate.
You'll encounter greed, corruption, vengeance and deadly gunfighters
as you ride alongside the greatest bounty hunter in the Old
West as he doles out justice the only way he knows how: one
bullet at a time...
Full of Violence contains
six stories of wild west action as Jonah Hex takes on a number
of jobs to bring the guilty to justice. To be honest you don't
have to be a fan of wild west movies to appreciate this collection
- it's more a bounty hunter based series. It could just have
easily been set in the present day or the future.
tales collected here have their own merits and are quite diverse
- from Hex's quest for a missing boy who may have been kidnapped,
to his holy quest to retrieve a stolen religious artefact
(which also happens to be made of pure gold). For me the most
moving was The Plague of Salvation, a tale that sees
Hex find an old flame as well as an old enemy.
collection also tells one tale, Chako Must Die, where
the guilt of the man with the bounty on his head is questionable.
However, this doesn't concern Hex - well, would you take the
word of a man who is obviously begging for his life? But,
just when you think that Hex is an unfeeling monster, just
doing his job for the money and walking off into the sunset,
we get to see his real side. He does care for more than the
bounty on the head of each job. Truth, justice and the American
way shines through all of these tales - there's no apple pie
writers also have fun at their main character's expense. Chako
Must Die sees Hex's bounty annoying him by constantly
talking to him - trying to befriend him and prove that his
is a misunderstood and loveable rogue, but certainly not guilty
of the crime he is accused of. Hex can't stand the man's chattering,
but he can't very well shoot a man for being annoying can
is an interesting collection that will leave you want more
of the mysterious Hex.
