Written by Paul Tobin

And this cat has stories to tell about how he (over the course of a few lifetimes) has shaped the world – and another, darker story that Allison must risk all to uncover… a story of what this particular cat has been doing with the LAST of his nine lives.

LETTER 44 VOLUME 1:
ESCAPE VELOCITY

Written by Charles Soule
Drawn by Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque
Colored by Guy Major and Dan Jackson
Lettered by Shawn DePasquale

$19.99 – On Inauguration Day, newly elected President Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and a failing health care system. But in a letter penned by the outgoing President, Blades learns the truth that redefines “critical”: seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close–assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination.

Today, President-elect Blades has become the most powerful man on the planet. This planet.

Issues #1-6 of the acclaimed creator-owned sci-fi series are collected in this trade paperback with a futuristic holofoil cover!

Charles Soule will be signing! See schedule below for details.

Meanwhile, in space, as construction on the alien Chandelier is finally completed, the crew of the Clarke will truly understand what they’re facing.

Review: The Sixth Gun #41

6GUN #41 _Page_01“But when the horror…when death…did not come for her quickly…she sought it ought”
– speaking about Griselda

The Sixth Gun #41 is a stand alone story of Drake and Becky’s relentless journey to obtain The Sixth Gun and the five others, but also necessary if we are to understand the history of The Six and from where their power originated. That story is the reveal of Griselda The Grey Witch’s past and what other twisted and dark secrets she holds. We have seen here many times before, but never really knew what her motives were. Why does she want The Six so bad? What does she plan on doing with them once she gets them in her grips? This issue of The Sixth Gun explains The Grey Witch’s history as well as her plans for the future once she gets her hands on all six guns and it only spells out doom and gloom for our heroes Drake and Becky.

It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is about The Sixth Gun that makes it so enjoyable. Is it the writing, the characters, or the art? It must be a harmonious combination of all three and Issue #41 delivers just like each chapter before it. The art in The Sixth Gun is always a standout part of each book and in this issue we are treated to the wonderful illustrations of Tyler Crook. If you remember from a few past issues, Crook aided Bunn’s co-creator and famed artist Brian Hurtt. Like Hurtt’s top-notch drawings, Tyler Crook’s illustrations take on a cinematic quality that jumps out of the page making you helpless to put it down. Add to this Bill Crabtree’s colors and sometimes I forget to turn the page because I’m staring at each drawing so intently.

The Sixth Gun is the first comic I ever read by Cullen Bunn. I have picked up everything he has written since and he never disappoints. Issue #41 of the The Sixth Gun is a perfect example of how rich and intricate his storytelling can be and the main reason it’s one of the few comic books I read four or five times in a row. The history of the Grey Witch is something I never thought was necessary until now. Cullen Bunn delivers another amazing chapter of Drake and Becky’s adventures preparing us for the inevitable with tales from the very beginning. Learning of Griselda The Grey Witch and her history was the perfect story to tell that breathes more life into one of The Sixth Gun’s most feared villains. Someone asked me once to describe a comic book with one word. If I had to describe The Sixth Gun #41 using just one word it would be, FUN. All the elements I spoke about just now make this a really fun comic to read, re-read then read again.

 

Spoilers for The Sixth Gun below – Warning

Thoughts and Discussion

- Now that Jesup has all Six guns is their nothing in Griselda’s way to utilize their power?

- Now we know that Griselda cannot physically hold any of the ‘Guns’. Will this affect how she uses them for nefarious purposes?

- How will Drake and Becky get the ‘Guns’ back?

- We know that The Grey Witch is General Oliander Hume’s mother and we probably will not see him ever again (maybe?), but will we see The Great Wyrms again? I would love to see Drake and Becky fight them.

Oni Press Appoints Tim Wiesch Vice President of Business Development

tim wieschRiding high atop a wave of successful, acclaimed new titles, awards, and opportunities, Oni Press has announced the appointment of Tim Wiesch as Vice President of Business Development.

Wiesch rides triumphantly into Oni Press after spending five years as Dark Horse Comics’ Director of Foreign Licensing, spearheading the publishing of numerous Dark Horse titles in territories across the globe, from South America to Mongolia, and much of the world in between. Though, an expert in the field of foreign licensing, that’s far from all Wiesch will be responsible for in his new position at Oni Press.

2014 has been a time of thunderous success and growth for Oni Press.  As the staff prepares for the rest of the convention season and undertakes a rapidly growing publishing schedule, it’s safe to say this storm is far from over.

Congrats to Tim on the position!
