A first look at Fiona Staples' interiors for JONAH HEX #66

A first look at Fiona Staples' interiors for JONAH HEX...

My admiration for Fiona Staples may be more publicly documented than the personal lives of most reality stars, but that respect is certainly well-earned. I’ve been looking forward to previewing Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray’s JONAH HEX #66 since we announced Fiona would be handling the art duties for the issue earlier this year. Here’s what Fiona had to say about her experience drawing the issue:

I love Westerns and this was my first time getting to draw one, so I really enjoyed tackling the scarred faces, period clothing and harsh environment. This particular story had a bit of a horror aspect too, so it was right up my alley! Of course, the best part of all was drawing Jonah's famous messed-up face and contorting it into different expressions (mostly variations of "stoic" and "disgusted") as he reacts to the weirdness going on around him.

JONAH HEX #66 lands in comic stores this week. (If the creative team weren’t already enough, it also features cannibals!)[gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"] Stay tuned for another exciting Jonah Hex art announcement coming soon...
