Jonah Hex: Confederacy

I've been dying to work on a western lately and I loved the recent issue of Jonah Hex (#57) where Bat Lash, Scalphunter, the Trigger Twins, and Nighthawk and Cinnamon showed up, so I worked up another page featuring most of them. I know it's another page of talking like the Captain Marvel pages I posted, and I promise I do have some action stuff ahead, but there were still a couple things I wanted to try out -- namely campfire lighting, different angles on characters wearing hats, plus a little more varied expression in a conversation. I'd love to work on any of these characters at some point, but I'm especially interested in Scalphunter, a character I had little to no knowledge of previously but having drawn him a little now I'm really taken with him.

So, much like Captain Marvel and Encyclopedia Brown, I want in on a western at some point. It doesn't have to be with these characters, but boy that'd be a lot of fun.
