If anything, I liked this volume more. I'm a sucker for anything with a devil's crossroads in it - Wandering Jack and all of the best and deepest American legends and tales start at a crossroads. (That's where the devil always bets his golden fiddle against your soul.) And Drake finds his crossroads and his devil in a Louisiana cypress swamp. Well written and beautifully drawn.
I'm not a graphic novel expert, or even heavy reader, so I don't know where this series fits in the overall rank, but as a casual reader I've got to say that "The Sixth Gun" has been an unexpected and eye-opening pleasure.
This was a great volume; the only part that bothered me was Becky and Kirby Hale. First guy that shows some interest in her and she throws herself at his feet? After all that she's been through she just decided to tell him everything about the guns, after she just met him? I put it down to her still being naïve, but it was still annoying. I hope she has learned her lesson now.
The second volume in the series is as exciting and fun as the first. I love Brian Hurtt's art which is just amazing. The way he draws the Louisiana swamps, themselves a rich scenic backdrop, is wonderful and I love Southern architecture so placing those beautiful old Southern houses, whitewashed like crazy, looming with pillars and balconies and shutters, vines and other plants creeping up them - oh. Just makes me wish all the more I lived in the past. Hurtt's monster designs are excellent too and the villain of the book is a really interesting mix of animals, black magic, and warped humanity smooshed together into one scary dude.
I really like how Cullen Bunn's writing Becky. She's no wallflower or damsel in distress, she acts just like male heroes do: she gets laid, she gets drunk, she fights like a madman, she's all about her gun - it's really refreshing to read a female character who just does what she likes and the hell with what people think. Kirby is an interesting new character too who keeps Becky's storyline lively but Henri Fournier, the wizard of the swamp, and his manservant Woodmael are the best new creations. Secretive and strange, you'll be guessing the whole time what they and their intentions really are that I don't want to say anything further about them - they're just great!Read more ›
Vol 2 finds Drake seeking mystics who can tell him how to destroy the guns. Clarissa has come along for the ride, but there's animosity between them and she's got her own ideas about how to proceed. Plus, it seems to be the first time she's off the farm and she's finding her way as an adult. There's an obligatory visit to the swamps of New Orleans, and a giant crocodile. Plus, we get the first glimpses of the larger story and menace facing the characters and, perhaps, the whole world.
We can only hope that the comic won't devolve into a formula in the following volumes.
Oh you stupid man Dan! How can you go so long and still not be caught up with this AMAZING series! Sadly folks I am behind and reading this one in trade form, but I have to tell you, I think it is something that you can't pass up any longer. The artwork in this series is just GORE-Geous, surprisingly minus the gore. This trade takes place in the grand city of New Orleans, as we catch up with the crew as they try to understand more about the guns. Hurtt does a fantastic job of capturing the Crescent City and surroundings. The swamps are spooky, the graveyards are grotesque and the man draws a damn fine alligator. I have a soft spot for alligators in comics. The story itself has many intense moments followed up by some great slow points. Bunn has such an ear for the dialogue, nothing seems out-of-place. This book is just so damn addicting. I can not wait for the day I see this translated to the big/small screen, and I know it will happen. Mixing supernatural and western elements has been done before but not on this level. When I get caught up on the trades, I will be going back and getting the single issues. This is easily one of the best books on the shelves right now. I honestly can't see who it wouldn't appeal to.
