The DC Comics adaptation revolves around a bounty hunter, an American Civil War veteran with scars covering the right side of his face, who attempts to stop a Southern plantation owner from raising an army of the undead.
Jonah Hex first appeared in the early 1970s in the issues of “All-Star Western
” before graduating to his own series in 1977 that ran for about 10 years. A new series was launched in 2005. The character also had a run in the 1990s that combined the Western genre with supernatural elements.
The Jimmy Hayward
-directed comic book also stars John Malkovich, Megan Fox
(whose pictures from the set of the movie you can see here
