So, in case you missed it, Free Comic Book Day was May 1st. There were many comics available for free, but one that ran out quickly at many stores was The Sixth Gun #1. Apparently, the demand was so high that Oni Press completely depleted their stock. After a mountain of requests from fans and retailers, Oni is reissuing The Sixth Gun #1, with a new cover, on the same day that the second issue is released!
Just like Iron Man/Thor, The Sixth Gun is a FCBD title I missed out on by getting to the shop late so much joy was had when it was announced that Oni would be putting the entire issue up online for people to read in anticipation of the second! Written by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, this is a very impressive start and people with much more clout in the comic book industry (anyone) agree:
"An absolute winner in every way." -Jason Aaron (SCALPED, WOLVERINE)
"...plants the round of their story square between your eyes. Read it, damn you! Read it!" -Greg Rucka (STUMPTOWN, QUEEN & COUNTRY)
"...came out with guns blazing and I'm ready for more." -Jeff Parker (AGENTS OF ATLAS, MYSTERIUS THE UNFATHOMABLE)
"...full of creepy, atmospheric scenes and bizarre concepts, beautifully realized." -Kurt Busiek (ASTRO CITY TRINITY, AVENGERS)
“The west just got a whole lot wilder... and weirder!" -Andy Diggle (DAREDEVIL, THE LOSERS)
"Say hello to your new favorite comic." -Matt Fraction (INVINCIBLE IRON MAN, UNCANNY X-MEN)
Do yourself a favor and tell your local comic shop to reserve your copy of The Sixth Gun #1 & #2 today! Don't miss out again.
