During the time of the Civil War, a group of heartless men come into possession of six pistols with strange and evil powers. Then one day, the Sixth Gun (the one with the most dangerous power) vanished. Years later, Becky, a young, innocent girl gains possession of the Sixth Gun and the cutthroat men, long thought dead, come after her to regain the gun and it's magnificent powers. The only person who can help Becky is Drake Sinclair - a gunslinger with a shady past of his own.

This is the first comic that I read on my nook and it looked beautiful. I was impressed with the colors and the drawings. I also liked the setup for this comic series. It's a western which is considered a mostly dead genre but it's got a bit of science fiction mixed in. The characters were developed well enough to get me invested in them but not quite enough that their mystery was gone. I'm looking forward to seeing more in this series.

I need to stop reading comics late at night, especially volumes. Because, strangely enough if it is any good then I can’t stop reading until it’s finished. Lucky for me this first volume of The Sixth Gun was only 159 pages long so it didn’t take that long time to finish it. (Luckily I only had the first volume on the ipad so I couldn’t start with volume 2...

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) ( )

Gotta agree with some of the other reviewers here. This was a spectacular concept, but with terrible execution. Dull art and hackneyed writing are what ruin this book for me. The concept alone is worth two stars though. ( )

Gripping stuff. A well thought out story with visceral illustrations. My heart was in my mouth at each bad turn the story took. ( )
