When the New 52 launched back in 2011, one of the interesting things about the lineup of titles was the presence of a lot of books that attempted to break out of the standard superhero genre, at least a little. There were horror, fantasy and war comics, but the most creatively and commercially successful by far was DC Comics' All Star Western, featuring Jonah Hex. Now, however, All Star Western is coming to an end after three years with a story where Jonah Hex is faced with what may be his toughest foe yet: Jonah Hex.
This issue marks a pretty notable conclusion for a few reasons, most notably being that, if you count the Jonah Hex series that launched back in 2006 before rebooting as All Star Western, writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray are two of DC's longest tenured creators, having written over a hundred issues about Jonah Hex, the disfigured old west era bounty hunter originally created by John Albano and Tony DeZuniga in the early 1970s.
The second is that the issue marks the auspicious return of award-winning artist Darwyn Cooke to the character for his final adventure.
Halloween is just around the corner, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for a night of costumes!

Today, we're having a look at a few of the more obscure selections, because tomorrow's Halloween and everyone's going to be sold out of Batman costumes by now.

After years of pairing its animated features starring A-list characters with shorts showcasing arguably lesser-known quantities, Warner Home Video is pulling a Pixar and packaging its less-lengthy tales i
Here's the thing about Jonah Hex: In comics, he was a pretty revolutionary character. He's one of the first real anti-heroes to catch on in comics, trading on the striking visual of his scarred face and the distinctive uniform of the Confederacy that under any other circumstances should've marked him as a villain, operating in a moral area that's just as gray as his coat. He's got a hook to him that other
