Sound Effects - One Shot - J.D. Coughlan

Jonah Hex, old west bounty hunter and rogue, hides behind the bar in a saloon, cornered by bandits. He's down to his last bullet.


Panel 1: Looking over the bar from behind it. Hex carefully aims his pistol off-panel. In the background, three bandits taunt him.

BANDIT 1: Come out with yer hands over yer ass-ugly face, Hex!

Panel 2: Close-up of Hex's gun as he fires.


Panel 3: The bullet ricochets off a brass light fixture, travelling from bottom right to bottom left.

SFX: ting

Panel 4: The bullet ricochets off the spitoon on the floor, travelling from top right to top left.

SFX: pling

Panel 5: The bullet, travelling from bottom right, cuts through the cord holding the large lighting fixture (like a cheaper, wooden chandelier, I dunno what you call it) to the ceiling.

SFX: snik

Panel 6: The light fixture crashes down on the bandits.


BANDIT 1: Ooft!

BANDIT 2: Argh!

BANDIT 3: Gah!

  1. Ha! Awesome, fun page JD. Love the physical comedy of the deflecting bullet and the solution to his single shot problem. Also, kudos on the title here.
