We love us some Jonah Hex, and we love the team of Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti even more. These two have been crafting entertaining stories together for years now, finding the heart and humanity behind everyone from D-stringers to beloved characters, without losing a wink of excitement — wait, does excitement wink? — without missing an unblinking, intense stare of excitement.

Now they’re teamed up with the artist Moritat, while Hex is teamed up with the conjurer John Constantine (yeah, he’s English when Keanu Reeves isn’t playing him) to take on the worst foe of all: hippies. But they’re possessed hippies, so you don’t have to feel bad about shooting them. They’ll just ask you for bus fare to Santa Fe for their next filthy gathering, but if you give it to them, they’ll keep taking and taking until they’ve bummed your soul.

Ugh, hippies are the worst.

As if there weren’t enough reasons to hate hippies, now Burning Man is summoning the apocalypse.

“Sorry, we were looking for the sexy Matrix rave, not the cavorting of the damned.”

Time-traveling Jonah Hex is the BEST kind of Hex.

Yee-hum.

Brendan McGinley is editor round these parts when not writing comics or Cracked columns. You can say a neighborly hello to him on Twitter @BrendanMcGinley.

Who can say no to the ol' 1-point perspective angle on a pistol?

It’s okay to admit it–Hex is just the latest victim of Hollywood’s Take: Cowboys. Thankfully his comics still kick ass. So do these Nine More Comics for Hardcore Geeks.
