In the CBR exclusive interview, Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, writers of DC’s ongoing Jonah Hex series are interviewed about plans leading up to issue #50 and beyond — including their thoughts on the Jonah Hex movie.

CBR: Speaking of artists, what can we expect from Darwyn Cooke when the double-sized #50 hits stores?

JG: We love Darwyn so you can expect him to kick ass and take names.

JP: We are working on something special for him and worthy of a 50th issue. All I can tell you at this point is that, wait, I can’t say a thing yet except that it will feature one of the nastiest, angriest, talented gun slingers out there. And Jonah Hex, as well.

CBR: Has this been in the works since he illustrated #33?

JG: Pretty much, Darwyn said he wanted to do another after he finished #33.

JP: I have so much blackmail material on Darwyn that you can expect a triple-sized 100th issue. This guy may be one of the best illustrators in the business, but after hours, he gives Satan a run for his money. You think I’m kidding? Did you know he has the world record for the most naked arrests on the “COPS?” See, you know nothing.
