Comics in Special Collections

Western Comics

Popular in the 1940s and 1950s, Western comics featured stories of the American frontier. Some comics in Special Collections that fall under this genre include:

Also a 2010 movie, Western anti-hero Jonah Hex had his own title from 1978-1985.  A bounty hunter whose face was scarred after a fight with Indians, the series has pretty typical Western themes, but sometimes ventured into the supernatural.
