Jonah Hex travelled a long and brutal trail to become the
most feared bounty hunter in the Old West. Now, for the first
time, the legendary tales of Hex's early days can be told.
Follow the saga from the beginning as Hex, the son of a drunkard,
is sold into slavery to be raised by Apache Indians before
fighting in the Civil War and ultimately becoming the West's
most feared bounty hunter. From his tortured childhood to
the events that gave him his trademark scars, ride along with
Jonah Hex as he dispenses his unique form of justice in the
world where right and wrong are marked with bullets and bravery...
the back story of Jonah Hex revealed. This collection kicks
off with Retribution, which helps to flesh out the
character a lot more. No longer is Hex such a mysterious and
dark character. Now fans have the origins of the character
to help slot everything in place. Here
we see Hex who, as a small boy, was sold into slavery to the
Apache Indians - sold by his father to gain safe passage through
the Indians' land. Growing up as a slave, a twist of fate
turns him from a slave into a member of the Indian community,
but when he and the chief's daughter become romantically involved,
one member of the tribe makes it his duty to discredit Hex.
up is The Ballad of Tallulah Black. Here a woman, Tallulah
Black, seeks revenge against a group of men who wiped out
her entire village and left her for dead. Then, not long afterwards
when Tallulah is working as a prostitute, one of the men recognises
her and decides to disfigure her. Recovering from her attack,
she sets off on a mission to hunt down Hex and buy his services
in her bid for revenge.
not my favourite story, the one that caught me off guard was
the final tale, I Walk Alone. This sees Hex being disturbed
by a domestic dispute. A woman tells him that the men chasing
her have held her captive and will kill her. Reluctantly,
Hex makes a stand against the men, but nothing is what it
is a pretty essential collection if you've being following
the series. And if you haven't bought the two previous collections,
then you won't feel out in the cold if you buy this.
