Weird West is a subgenre that combines elements of the Western with another genre, usually horror, occult, fantasy, or science fiction.
DC's Weird Western Tales appeared in the early 1970s, and the weird Western was further popularized by Joe R. Lansdale, who is perhaps best known for his tales mixing splatterpunk with alternate history Western.
Examples of these cross-genres include Deadlands (Western/horror), The Wild Wild West and its later film adaptation (Western/steampunk), Jonah Hex (Western/supernatural), BraveStarr (Western/science fiction), The Goodbye Family (Gothic Western/macabre comedy), and many others.
