Jonah Hex And Other Western Tales #2 - Dec. 1979

Another beautiful cover by Luis Dominguez, another collection of hard-bitten, hard-shootin' tales of the old west! Like the previous Jonah Hex digest, this collection devotes space to many of DC's western characters.

Stories include:
• Jonah Hex in "Blood Brothers" by Arnold Drake and Tony DeZuniga
Billy the Kid in "Billy the Kid--Killer!" by John Albano and Tony DeZuniga 
El Diablo in "Never Kill A Demon!" by Cary Bates and Neal Adams (man, how did El Diablo not become a huge hit with stories that looked this good?) 
Jonah Hex in "Grasshopper Courage" by John Albano and Tony DeZuniga 
Scalphunter in "Mark of the Warrior!" by Michael Fleisher, Dick Ayers, and George Evans 
• The next story is a real treat--"Anachronism" by Don Kaar and Alex Toth! You can always depend on Toth for unusual storytelling, and this story is no different--the entire tale is told horizontally, so you have to flip the book sideways to read it 
Jonah Hex in "Promise to a Princess" by John Albano and Tony DeZuniga

...and finally is a one page feature "The Old West: Fiction vs. Fact" by the always-entertaining Mike W. Barr and drawn by Mike Nasser.

Giddyap, pardner!
