When a millionaire's only son is kidnapped, Hex is called on to track down and recover the boy. But a simple missing person case turns into a hunt for vengeance as Hex unleashes his special brand of justice on the unsuspecting culprits.

Bounty hunter Jonah Hex has a shoot-out with a fellow hunter named James Ronnie. He guns Ronnie down for the unnecessary murder of an Apache woman. Afterwards, he rides on until he arrives at the Foster estate in Chesterton. Johshua Foster hires Jonah to find his missing son, Jacob. Jacob has been missing for several weeks, but so far no one has issued any ransom demands. Hex accepts the job, but warns Foster that his son may very well be dead.

Jonah tracks the boy to a carnival side show run by Victor Romanoff. Romanoff takes in young boys and trains him to fight against starving dogs in his pit fights. Young Jacob is one of Romanoff's star attractions and is billed under the name, Little Devil. As Jonah investigates further, he learns that the boy is rabid and slowly dying. He decides to put him out of his misery by smothering him with a pillow.

He then apprehends Victor Romanoff and tosses him into the pit arena. He covers him with a bucket of pig's blood and sets the snarling pit bulls after him. Afterwards, Jonah returns to the Foster estate and tells Joshua Foster that his son is dead, but he died like a man. He doesn’t tell him that he ended the boy's life.

Great First Issue 0

In the first issue Jonah Hex killed an associate of his after he discovers he raped an Apache Squaw, before being hired to find a rich mans missing son. The first thing to be noticed here is how striking the art by Luke Ross is. He draws Hex to bear a very strong resemblance to Clint Eastwood. It works also. You could see an Eastwood of twenty years ago playing this character. I will give credit however to Jason Kieths colors for bringing this world to life.  However, I would have to be honest a...

I have lotsa' issues, and i'm really enjoying it! 0

I was lucky enough to buy the first and second issue when i saw them quite a while ago... Then a friend told me that he had found a guy who had lots of issues at a fair price and i rushed there and bought quite a few (there's still some a' them left) And so, i learned to love Jonah Hex... His series is pretty graphic, it should have a "mature readers suggested" Label, i don't mind violence in comics (read my reviewed material), but at least put a warning for children -12 yo that buy'em.
