Yosemite Sam Goes Looney Tunes with DC Comics' Jonah Hex

Comic Book Review: Jonah Hex / Yosemite Sam Special #1

When miner Yosemite Sam strikes it rich, word gets out as everyone comes gunning for his wealth! To protect himself and his new riches, he hires bounty hunter Jonah Hex. However, the man protecting him may be his worst nightmare in Jonah Hex / Yosemite Special #1!

Jonah Hex / Yosemite Sam Special #1 is available now in print and digital editions.

Jonah Hex / Yosemite Sam Special #1 is rated T for Teen. It contains violence and gore, adult situations, and frightening and intense scenes. There are a couple of panels that show a man getting his head blown off. Yosemite Sam and Jonah Hex visit a saloon / brothel for a little company, too.

Jimmy Palmiotti wrote the main story for the Jonah Hex / Yosemite Sam Special #1 and Mark Texeira provided the artwork. Bill Matheny wrote the backup tale and David Alvarez illustrated. It was released on June 28th through DC Comics. The book is 48 pages long.

I'm finally starting to understand the format of these entertaining little mashups of Looney Tunes cartoon characters and DC's biggest comic icons. They give readers a story for teens and adults and one catered to a younger audience all within the pages of one book. Both tales prove to be a great formula when it comes to the Jonah Hex / Yosemite Sam Special #1. The art styles are a major part of what separates and sets the tones for these two adventures. The handiwork for the main tale is much more graphic and weighty. The backup reflects its cartoon foundations and has a lighter and more friendly air to it.
