Jonah Hex #12 - Jim Starlin cover

Jonah Hex v1 #12, 1978 - Known mostly for superhero comics, this is among the few Jim Starlin western covers (see also Weird Western Tales #44 and #45). The composition is unusually dynamic for the genre and the figures posed a little too heroically. Still, other artistic details are appropriate and even praiseworthy. I especially like how Jonah's head conveniently falls into shadow, allowing for some dramatic backlighting. This is number 1 of 1 Jonah Hex issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Jonah Hex issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
