I love Weird Western stories, and I love ongoing comics that tell a single, ongoing story. So the idea of a monthly Weird Western comic was pretty much irresistible. Having said that, it took a few issues for this series to grow on me, but by the end of the first, six-issue story (collected in this volume), The Sixth Gun had become one of my new favorite comics.

Telling the story of six supernatural guns, the book focuses on Rebecca Moncrief, who inherits one of the guns from her father. The gun allows her to see visions of the past and the future, and is an important part of a mysterious plot by General Oleander Hume, the dead-and-resurrected former owner of the gun. Rebecca finds herself allied with Drake Sinclair, one of the general's former subordinates, and together, they work to stop him from uniting the six guns, which would bring about dire consequences.

Writer Cullen Bunn tells a fairly complete story in this book, while setting up some intriguing mysteries for future installments. Artist Brian Hurt's art is clear and straightforward, while still detailed. His characters are clear and distinct, and he makes the supernatural weirdness fit right in with the regular setting. The historical detail feels accurate without having to hit the reader over the head with it. All in all, loads of fun. Can't wait to see where the story goes next. (As I type this, the comic is only up to seven issues, but the second story is already heading off in weird, different directions.)

As a Western Slope Coloradan and a died in the wool Southwesterner I like my cowboy stories. But I was very hesitant about this item - a graphic novel, lots of fantasy, magic and cursed folderol. It had the potential to be pretty lame, and to subvert those cowboy staples that keep the genre running.

Well guess what? This is a totally interesting enterprise. Damsel in distress, mysterious stranger with a shady past, evil villain, equally evil gunmen henchmen. It's all there. And all the cursed gun, living dead, immortal bad guy stuff has been worked into the story so smoothly that it slipped right in, naturally, with the cowboying. Heck, our hero's visit to the lynching tree was worth the price of admission right there.

And the graphic work hits that sweetspot between clearly drawn and too over-the-top. Sharp and colorful, with a lot of energy, but restrained when it needs to be, and always in service to the story.

So, I'm a convert. I don't pretend to be a master of either graphic novels or westerns, but if you're at all interested in sampling either, this seems like an attractive possible choice.

Never heard of this series, but met the author and illustrator at Emerald City Comic-con, where they kindly sold me a copy and signed it, as well. I seriously enjoyed this volume and fully intend to read another. It was a compelling Western world with a dark, Biblical horror to its lore, which was itself rich in history. The artwork is the perfect mix of expressive and narrative- beautiful, but still conveying the plot effortlessly. The writing is similarly engrossing and interesting. This first volume throws you in almost in medias res and then keeps going, which is incredible considering where this volume already took us. Although I would've liked learning a bit more about some of the protagonist, the rich dark powers granted by the six guns fully made up for it. I absolutely intend on buying and reading the next book, which I hope to give five stars!

The Sixth Gun is story about a very special gun that makes the carrier see into the future. Also the person that picks up the gun is stuck with it until…well until the he or she dies and it’s picked up by someone else. Only one person at the time can carry it, others get hurt by it if they try to pick it up. In the beginning of the comic is it a old preacher that has the gun but after his death it’s his stepdaughter that picks it up and now she together with Drake Sinclair and Billjohn O’Henry, two gunfighters, is trying to get the other five guns (all with special powers to the carrier) and also trying to stop the original owner getting his hands on the sixth gun. If he does get his gun back and the rest of the five he will unleash hell on earth...

This was a terrific read, paranormal + western. How I love when those two genres mix up. Honestly I probably enjoy any genre with a lit mix of paranormal in it. But anyway it was really, really good and as soon as I have time I will start with the next volume. There are seven of them!!! (Happy)

There's six guns created to do bad things, and eventually one ends up in the hands of a good guy. His adopted daughter accidentally inherits it and encounters a couple of people looking to unite all six guns for treasure... or something worse, rather.
Anyway, it's got great writing and art and it's a western book with ghosts, zombies, and monsters. It's been out awhile and if either genre appeals to you, get it!

Post-Civil War America, the Old West. Missy Hume, a menacing woman with mysterious motives, hires Pinkerton agents to track down a valuable gun which belonged to her late husband General Oliander Hume, currently in the possession of a preacher. But the gun falls into the hands of the preacher's daughter, Becky Montcrief, who discovers the gun has supernatural powers and imprints itself to the first person who wields it after its previous owner passes - in other words, only she can use this strange gun. And bad people are after her.

Meanwhile, treasure hunter Drake Sinclair finds Becky before the newly resurrected General Hume and his gang of outlaw horrors do, all of whom possess a gun with magical powers. Drake and Becky must gain control of all six guns to keep the mad General from unleashing an unspeakable danger into the world.

Volume 1 of the Sixth Gun series, Cold Dead Fingers, opens up like a gunslinger emptying his barrel in a duel - the action and characters come shooting out in quick succession. Cullen Bunn does a great job of getting the story going quickly and keeps the momentum up throughout the book, introducing you to characters and their world seamlessly. And while the chase story in the Western genre has been done to death, it really works well here because of the horror element thrown into the mix.

Bunn sets the scene nicely giving the book the convincing atmosphere of the Old West with town names like Brimstone and a cast that include the likes of preachers, cathouse owners, Pinkerton agents, and Civil War castoffs. He also subverts Western staples with the horror angle so that when the familiar sight of a hanging tree is introduced, it turns out to be an oracle where the hanged souls are forever bound but can see the future.
