Hex & Violence Episode 0 – Who is Jonah Hex?


He was a hero to some, a villain to others… and wherever he rode people spoke his name in whispers. He had no friends, this Jonah Hex, but he did have two companions: one was death itself… the other, the acrid smell of gunsmoke.

In our series prologue, Mike and Casey get into their mutual love of a largely unknown comic book character: DC’s western anti-hero, Jonah Hex.

We get into the character’s origins, his lasting appeal and why this merciless bounty hunter with a hideous facial scar has outlived the genre that spawned him.

One thought on “Hex & Violence Episode 0 – Who is Jonah Hex?

  1. I ended up listening to these in reverse order (because I didn’t notice there was a “0” episode initially), so I’ll leave my comment here.
    Like the new series and enjoyed both episodes, even though I haven’t read much of Hex myself (just a few random issues in the late ’70s/early ’80s). Looked forward to future installments, whenever they may come…

    By the way, the film-maker Max and the comics writer (now anthropologist, apparently) Michael are both named Fleischer, but they are not at all related as far as I know.
