Book-a-Day 2018 #139: Jonah Hex: Shadows West by Joe R. Landsale, Tim Truman, and Sam Glanzman

  • Comicmix
Time never stops. And so the once-hot revisionist takes on a neglected character get neglected themselves, and re-emerge in a new format for something like an anniversary.

Or, maybe, y’know, Jonah Hex was always a quirky character, even in the context of Bronze Age western heroes — already pretty far out on the branch of quirky and unusual — beloved by a small cult rather than particularly popular at any time.

Well, whatever.

If you’re confused, here’s the short version of a typically long and convoluted comics history: Jonah Hex was a scarred Western hero in ’70s DC comics, jumped into a post-apocalyptic future for the ’80s because all the other cool kids were doing it, and has bumped around the fringes of various DC media properties since then, mostly back in Western mode as if Hex never happened. Some of the best stories about him were three mini-series in the ’90s,

Michael Fassbender: The Next 'James Bond' ?

Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender ("12 Years A Slave"), at 39-years old, has the looks, chops and killer instinct to play the next big screen 'James Bond', now that dog-faced Daniel Craig has officially left the '007' movie franchise:

"To be honest with you", said Fassbender, "I think they should reboot the 'James Bond' series and go back to his origins as a soldier.

"I’ve got a great idea for it actually, so (producer) Barbara Broccoli talk to me..."

The stage-trained actor's feature film debut was the fantasy war epic "300" (2007), playing a 'Spartan' warrior.

Prior to that, he appeared in the HBO TV miniseries "Band of Brothers" (2001) and the Sky One fantasy drama "Hex" (2004–05).

He first came to prominence for his role as 'Ira' activist 'Bobby Sands' in "Hunger" (2008), for which he won a 'British Independent Film Award'.

Subsequent roles include playing a 'Royal Marines' lieutenant in "Inglourious Basterds" (2009)...

Josh Brolin Talks The Mess Of "Jonah Hex"

One of the less well-regarded comic book films of all time was one from only a few years ago - 2010's "Jonah Hex". A critical and commercial disaster, the $80 million budget project made just $10 million at the worldwide box-office and was the subject of scathing reviews.

Its stars Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, John Malkovich and Michael Fassbender managed to escape its stink without much damage, even so the film itself has become something of a poster child for how not to make a comic book movie. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor ("Crank") were originally hired to write and direct but dropped out before filming and were replaced by animation director Jimmy Hayward.

Rewrites, production problems and reshoots soon followed, and it was an experience that Brolin doesn't have many fond memories of. Speaking with The Nerdist and The Frame, Brolin discussed the mess and why he signed up in the first place:

Johnathon Schaech To Play Jonah Hex In DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow

It’s been revealed today that Johnathon Schaech will play Jonah Hex in the first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The character is set to appear in the eleventh episode, with the possibility to then become a recurring presence.

As you probably know, this won’t be Jonah Hex’s live-action debut, as he was previously played by Josh Brolin in a critically panned film adaptation which also starred Michael Fassbender and Megan Fox. Here’s hoping that this outing goes a bit better.

For more on what to expect from Hex, check out the official description for the character, courtesy of The CW:

A true legend of the Old West, a morally ambiguous gunslinger with a penchant for danger. Surprisingly, he knows a thing or two about time travel and the future, but is at home in the Wild West. He’s been battling outlaws and gangs for awhile now,

Jonah Hex to appear on 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow'

Variety reports that the new CW superhero show, "DC's Legends of Tomorrow", will feature a time-travel element in the series which will include the assembled team venturing into the old west and interacting with one of DC's most notable antihero, Jonah Hex.

Jonah Hex is a former confederate soldier-turned bounty hunter who is facially scarred and is known to wield supernatural powers such as raising the dead from their graves. Academy Award-nominee Josh Brolin portrayed the character in Warner Bros. Pictures film adaptation, "Jonah Hex," which co-starred John Malkovich, Michael Fassbender, Will Arnett, and Megan Fox.

On the inclusion of Hex in the show, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim said, “Ever since we decided that ‘Legends’ would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West. But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West,

That sinking feeling: the creators of Atlantis on where it went wrong

The prime-time drama was axed by the BBC during its second series. Here, Atlantis star Jack Donnelly and co-writer Johnny Capps discuss what worked, what they might have done differently, and where the show would have gone if it hadn’t been cancelled

Earlier this year, the BBC announced it was axing Saturday-night drama Atlantis – a shock to fans. But after only one full series (it was cancelled halfway through its second), the decision seemed premature: was the show given a fighting chance? Atlantis co-writer Johnny Capps (whose credits include Merlin and Hex) and star Jack Donnelly, who plays Jason, talk about where it all went wrong.

Although Atlantis was axed, it did have a strong fan base. What were its strengths?

As If: 10 year retrospective of the cult Channel 4 teen drama - part 2

Last year, As If celebrated 10 years since it came to an end on Channel 4. Digital Spy looks back on the cult series, speaking to several of the main cast about their memories of the show.

As If: 10 year retrospective of the cult Channel 4 teen drama - part 1

The sad fact with As If, is that it is almost impossible to track down today. The show has never been released on DVD, due to a copyright issue with the music. Without the music, it simply wouldn't be As If.

"Given the choice between no music so we can release the DVD, I'd choose the music," said Caroline Chikezie (Sasha). "They used to say the music was the seventh cast member, it was so important. It just took it to a whole new level. I guess it's worth not having a DVD release just to keep the music."

The fantasy-adventure series Atlantis, currently airing on Saturday nights on BBC America, brings the iconic lost city to life, re-imagined for a new generation. When Jason (Jack Donnelly) sets out to find his father, his journey leads him to a strange, yet impossibly familiar land full of dangerous creatures, legendary heroes and palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants. While there, Jason is befriended by an overweight, overly-confident Hercules (Mark Addy) and the studious young Pythagoras (Robert Emms), comes face-to-face with the fearsome Minotaur, does battle with the dead, meets a sweet girl named Medusa (Jemima Rooper), and catches the eye of the beautiful Ariadne (Aiysha Hart), the princess of Atlantis whose family and royal standing restricts who she may love.

'Atlantis': 'Merlin's' creators take on time-traveling Greek mythology

Myths are malleable, and BBC America's "Atlantis" twists ancient ones into new shapes.The lush 13-episode series launches Saturday, Nov. 23. Set on the lost island of Atlantis, it has a filmic look and tremendous fun with Greek myths.

In this, Hercules is an overweight blowhard played by Mark Addy ("Game of Thrones"). Medusa (Jemima Rooper, "Hex"), the hideous Gorgon who had snakes for hair, is now a sweet young woman. And Jason (Jack Donnelly, "Dancing on the Edge") is a hot traveler from the present.

"What struck me most is why hasn't anyone used this material before," Rooper tells Zap2it. "They are reinventing the stories as they want."

Fittingly, the series opens at sea, with Jason on a quest to find his long-lost father, whose submarine disappeared. Jason's small sub spins out of control and crashes, and he washes up, naked, on a foreign shore.

The Originals Recaplet: History Lesson

The Originals Recaplet: History Lesson
The CW’s The Originals unleashed a litany of mythology this Tuesday, including answers about witchy Davina’s mighty abilities, Sophie’s mission and the power struggle in New Orleans.

Although the hour was exposition-heavy, the various conversations and flashbacks were expertly threaded together, filling in the blanks (so that’s how Marcel came to be Davina’s protector) and taking some unexpected turns (let’s just say those Deveraux sisters are crafty).

Here are five things we learned during the intel-packed episode:
