* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: With The Comicbook/{{New 52}} the fan-favorite ''Jonah Hex'' series was cancelled and replaced by ''All-Star Western''. The name change comes with a drastically new format and status quo: Instead of being a series of unconnected short stories featuring different artists it is now an ongoing story with a single artist and also features backup stories featuring other characters. The bigger change is the fact that Hex is now in Gotham working with Amadeus Arkham. The fanbase is appropriately split over this. Those opposed claim the new series isn't as unique as the old one, loses the "western" feel (due to the urban setting) and is a blatant attempt to cash-in on the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' franchise. Proponents claim that after a [[LongRunners six year run]] a change is welcome and that while it may have been a cash-in it ''worked'', with ''All-Star'' selling much better than ''Jonah Hex'' did and possibly saving the series.

Proponents claim that after a [[LongRunners six year run]] a change is welcome and that while it may have been a cash-in it ''worked'', with ''All-Star'' selling much better than ''Jonah Hex'' did did. Through all this, the fact that Gray and possibly saving Palmiotti, at least, remained on the series.
book was met with widespread relief, however.

* HilariousInHindsight: One issue has worried Hex checking out a cave for bears, and when he sighs in relief for finding none, he is immediately jumped by a cougar. It comes off like something out of a typical session of ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption''.

* MyRealDaddy: Michael Fleisher took over writing duties for the character from creator John Albano in 1974 and continued to write the character until 1987, when the character's series was canceled. Over this 13 year period he wrote at least 125 Hex stories over three series (''Weird Western Tales'', ''Jonah Hex'' and ''Hex''), more than any other Hex writer. The Justin Gray/Jimmy Palmiotti writing team ''might'' reach comparable status too someday, as they've been writing the character since 2005 and show no signs of stopping.

* CompleteMonster [[MadDoctor William "Sawbones" Zimmerman]] was a brief but memorable foe of Jonah Hex. A former doctor during the Civil War, Zimmerman made a name for himself via horrible experiments and live dissections of prisoners of war, with his apprentices and himself also carrying out the same vivisections on blacks. After the war, Sawbones takes to kidnapping and murdering innocent young women without even the pretense it is for [[ForTheEvulz anything but enjoyment]]. When Hex falls into his hands, the doctor attempts to [[ColdBloodedTorture torture him to death]] as well, revealing he has a group of like-minded fellows he's trained that he intends to spread into the country, killing those they can via horrible means all [[ForScience in the name of twisted "science."]]
