Crisis on Infinite Earths #3
Crisis on Infinite Earths #3 June 1985
"Oblivion Upon Us"

Since DC is pretty much on non-stop-event mode, I thought we would take a look back to the really big one that started it all, Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Placing this in context with Jonah Hex, this was around the end of the normal Jonah Hex run and some weird things were happening in his book with some hints being dropped that Jonah would be changed entirely. My first thought was that the events in Crisis would be the catalyst for the changes in Jonah's book, but that never panned out.
Jonah's part in the Crisis was very small, part of a montage that was used to show that the Crisis was spanning all of time and space.
The year in 1879 and Bat Lash gets tossed out of a saloon in Coyote, Texas....
..and that is pretty much that. I did enjoy the reference to JLA #198 - #199 which took place in 1878. Nice that they kept a small part of continuity there.
Once again from the cover, a close up of Jonah and his buds.
