Long-time comic book writer John Albano was working for DC Comics in the early 1970s when editor Joe Orlando came to him with a request: Create a new western hero for DC Comics' All-Star Western, which was soon changing to Weird Western Tales. Albano was given All-Star Western 10 and 11 before the title became "weird." So, he came up with a ruthless bounty hunter who had been scarred during the Civil War. Albano created Jonah Hex. - Michael Browning
