Comic book character created by John Albano and Tony DeZuniga for DC Comics. He first appeared in a comic book called "Weird Western Tales", but soon received his own title, which lasted from 1977 to 1985.

Jonah was a gunslinger in the Wild West. I don't think you could call him a hero--hell, he was meaner'n a rattlesnake with saddle sores--but he had a twisted sense of honor that got him supporting most of the right causes. Of course, most of those causes required that a lot of killin' be done...

Hex's most prominent feature was the horrific scar that ran from his eye to his chin--I don't know how he got it, but it somehow left a strip of flesh that stretched across his mouth. Musta made it tough to eat...

In the aftermath of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Jonah got stranded in an apocalyptic future, where he rode a motorcycle across a nuclear wasteland. When that series finally got cancelled, we didn't hear much from Hex for a while, but in the 1990s, he appeared in a couple of supernatural-themed miniseries written by Joe R. Lansdale and illustrated by Tim Truman.
