All-Star Western (2nd Series)

 ASW2   (DC, 1970-1972)

™ and ©1971 National Periodical Publications, Inc.
Series continued in Weird Western Tales #12

DC’s second All-Star Western series featured darker western heroes, such as Outlaw, a “secret ranger” who masqueraded as a criminal to apprehend lawbreakers, and El Diablo, a mysterious, black-garbed avenger in the tradition of Zorro. The series’ most notable contribution to comics is Jonah Hex, the scarred bounty hunter who first appeared in issue #10, continued to headline the book when the title changed to Weird Western Tales with issue #12, and earned his own long-running title in 1977. Oddly enough, after his title was canceled with issue #92 in 1985, Jonah became a post-apocalyptic sci-fi hero in the short-lived series Hex. DC’s Vertigo imprint recently returned him to the Old West in two successful mini-series, Jonah Hex: Two-Gun Mojo and Jonah Hex: Riders of the Worm and Such.
