He may be a few hundred years old by today’s calendar, but 2010 was definitely a big year for Jonah Hex. He made his big screen debut earlier this summer, and later made his digital debut with an iTunes motion comic. Now, fans lucky enough to get their hands on Warner Premiere’s latest animated DVD, Batman: Under the Red Hood, will be treated to a special extra; DC Showcase Jonah Hex. While the motion comic brought comic book panels to life via Flash animation, the DC Showcase is a brand new, 10+ minute animated adventure starring the scarred cowboy. Written by Joe R. Lansdale, the animated feature stars the movie’s Thomas Jane as Jonah Hex, Linda Hamilton as Madame Lorraine, and Michael Rooker as Red Doc. Take a look at the feature in action

Warner Bros. recently brought Jonah Hex to the big screen – and while the film didn’t have the same critically acclaimed impact that Jonah Hex’s “little screen” TV appearances did for Cartoon Network’s Justice League, WB is hoping the third medium is a charm. Thus, the DC Comics character is making his way to a downloadable format, via the medium known as Motion Comics; taking existing comic book artwork, then animating them in a cartoon-like fashion. In total, three action packed Jonah Hex Motion Comics are available for download, bringing the books to life panel by panel via Warner Premiere’s digital push. Take a look at one of the clips in action, then head over to Apple’s iTunes for the full download!

Audiences were back in theaters as the toys were back in town. Pixar Animation Studios latest film, Toy Story 3, pulled in an estimated $109 million dollars at the box office over the weekend — hopefully, Ham wasn’t the only piggy bank around!

The 3D flick is sure to keep marching towards box office records, as the toys continue to work their way into our hearts.

A tough and stoic gunslinger, Jonah Hex is a trained bounty hunter who can track down anyone and anything. Jonah’s history is a mix of myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the other side. Jonah’s life comes full circle when the U.S. military makes him an offer he cant refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull; the very man who ruined his life. We got a look at Jonah Hex twice during the heyday of DC animation. First, the character appeared on Batman: The Animated Series, facing Ra’s al Ghul in a flashback episode entitled Showdown. Years later, Cartoon Network’s Justice League Unlimited featured the character in a time traveling episode titled The Once and Future Thing. Take a look at clips of the two, and let us know which you prefer
