Crossovers We Want To See: Jonah Hex & Billy The Kid in “Old Time Odyssey”
Written & drawn by Eric Powell
In a time before superheroes, Darkseid sends some minions to Earth to evaluate the planet’s usefullness. A small fleet of Parademons and a few evil New Gods get Boom Tubed to Earth and start terrorizing the locals out west. Billy the Kid and his travelling band of former circus freaks are the first to encounter the aliens, but soon enough, Jonah Hex is on the case as well, along with plenty of other heroes from DC’s wild west like El Diablo, Scalphunter and Bat Lash. The assembled heroes form a plan that makes enough trouble for Darkseid’s minions that they run back home, hoping that their master will offer more assistance. Instead, he decides to hold back and investigate at a later date.
