The top caption is laid out in pencil form; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Dick Ayers at the lower left.

    More Information:

    Jonah Hex is confronted by his arch-enemy Turnbull, in this iconic opening splash to "The Alliance." As presented in the recent motion picture, during the American Civil War, Jonah Hex served as a Confederate cavalryman until his commanding officer, Quentin Turnbull, a General for the Confederates ordered him to burn down a hospital. Hex refused and had to kill his best friend -- Turnbull's son Jeb. After the war, a vengeful Turnbull and his right-hand man, Burke, a psychopath who often takes pleasure in killing or tormenting others, tie up Hex and force him to watch as his house is burned down with his wife and son inside. Turnbull then brands Hex's face with his initials, "QT", and leaves him tied to a cross to die of thirst or exposure.
