Review – The Sixth Gun #7


Bookmark and Share

The Sixth Gun #7 is the start of a new story arc after the character’s battle with the general has ended.  But, where does the series go from here?  That’s the beauty of Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt‘s series.  The characters are hanging out in New Orleans and must decide what to do with the guns they have in their possession as an evil looms over them.

New story arc! In the aftermath of the tragic battle of the Maw, Drake and company hide in the sprawling city of New Orleans. But as they plot their next move, they find themselves embroiled in another harrowing adventure. Unexpected threats, new enemies, and a host of strange spirits are already aligning against them.

The series is wide open and really growing on me.  Judging from the first arc and how this issue is, as a whole I think each chapter is stronger as a whole than each individual issue, but being so wide open and seeing the characters now not on the run is so entertaining.  I definitely recommend this.

Plot: Bunn has a lot of places he can go with the series and instead of keeping the character’s on the run, he dials it back a bit and allows us to get to know who they are.  They’re reflecting on the events and a bit of their past.  It’s wide open from here, but what’s hinted out seems like it’s got a lot of potential.  Rating: 8

Art: Hurtt’s art is consistent and solid.  His style has grown on me and I think improved over these seven issues.  I’m not quite sure how to describe the style, but it’s great for the series.  This is clearly a team book between writer and artist and works really well.  Rating: 8

Overall: Cullen and Hurtt’s series has really grown on me.  I’ll admit I wasn’t too excited by it in the beginning but by the close of the first arc it’s a comic I like reading every month.  It’s consistent entertainment and with this issue shows there’s more than cookie cutter western characters.  Overall rating: 8
