DC Database

Long Tom was a trick-shooting midget who worked as a traveling entertainer in Buffalo Will's Wild West Show.

He became friends with Jonah Hex after saving the bounty hunter's life, and invited him to work at the revue.[1] Hex left their camp with his friend Spotted Balls to take a freak called the Bear Boy back to his family; they were alleged to be spirit people. Buffalo Will sent a posse after Hex to have them all murdered, and Long Tom lead the hunting party.[2] He was hilariously killed when Hex was able to spot his hiding place because of the silly hat he always wears.[3]
