Multcolib My Librarian Nick: Weird westerns part 2 - comics
Annotation:There is no Weird Western genre without the anti-hero Jonah Hex. DC's brooding Civil War loner at his genesis here with most of the original stories from the 1970's.
Annotation:Part of DC's Showcase series, this volume includes many of Jonah's early tales not in the reprint title "Welcome to Paradise" listed above. Introduces many important recurring characters.
Annotation:I'm a big fan of this supernatural Civil War-era series, now up to six volumes, featuring a zombie general in his quest to recover six magic revolvers. Bunn, Hurtt, and Oni Press knocked this one out of the park. Highly recommended.
Annotation:I wish this comic, originally a digital-only title, was still being produced. Your local library still has a copy of this fresh horror adventure yarn about cowboys and werewolves in the Old West. Detectives, witches, rituals, and magic add to the innovative mix. Highly recommended.
Annotation:This Hex re-launch from Gray and Palmiotti is gritty, bloody, and true to the legend. A great update of the classic bounty hunter with excellent writing and artwork dripping with detail. Over 10 volumes to date. So jealous of these guys...
Annotation:Palmiotti and Gray, covering much ground, ride Jonah Hex's storytelling chops into their update of "All-Star Western" for DC's "New 52." Also featuring new incarnations of past favorite characters.
Annotation:Azzarello's brutal, practically monochromatic tale about sheriff Moses Stone and his flight from the legendary El Diablo, a relentless, violent gunman who has unearthed the skeletons in Stone's closet, is pure Vertigo and a great four-issue series.
Annotation:"A spaghetti Western crossed with a zombie buddy story, Doug Freshley infuses new blood in genre stereotypes. For those who like Westerns, soft horror, and original twists on old themes."
Annotation:If you like apocalyptic Weird Westerns, this one is for you. Hickman sprawls a futuristic story about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse amid sparse technological artwork. Highly original and open-ended.
Annotation:Brand new reprint from the 1990's of Lansdale's darkly humorous take on the moody bounty hunter. Marvel at three separate tales involving mad doctors, an incubus, and giant worms of the earth! A very welcome collection.
Annotation:Over ten volumes present flashback stories only hinted at in Stephen King's novels, starting with this first entry into the epic journey of Roland Deschain. Enjoy the ride.
