BLOOD FEUD #1 (by Drew Moss, Nick Filardi, and some hick named Cullen Bunn) hits the stands this Wednesday! Hopefully, you pre-ordered it. Even if you didn’t, I hope you’ll give the book a chance! It’s a backwoods horror yarn with a lot of humor, heart, and spiders.
Here’s what a few people are saying about it:
This book is filled with twists at every corner, and some you even see coming yet a strong series that can easily be a TV show. The story by Cullen Bunn is departures from everything we have seem from him before, which […] shows his skills as writer who can tell superb stories no matter the genre. The art by Drew Moss and Nick Filardi is exceptional from their character designs to the intricate settings. Overall, a great entry into the genre, which looks to ramp up the action in future issues.

Blood Feud #1 took me by surprise, and (as you can probably tell) I really enjoyed the comic; I’ll be adding this to my ever-growing pull list when I next go to my Local Comic Shop. Hopefully you’ll do the same. (Graphic Policy) Read Full Review
This issue was actually a pretty good build up issue. It felt like the start of a horror movie, it had everything you want from horror. I really enjoyed it. The art is great and for the first time in a long while all the characters were likable. It’s gonna be sad when we start to lose them one by one. If I’m being honest I have to say it felt a little like the walking dead. Almost like a prequel until the vampires. (Comic Crusaders) Read Full Review

Tomorrow, Pinnacle Entertainment will launch a Kickstarter campaign in support of the role-playing game based on The Sixth Gun. In advance of the campaign, statistics for The Six–the mystical pistols with the power to reshape the world–have been released! Enjoy!
The Kickstarter launches at NOON on May 26th!
From the official press release:
Oni Press announces a partnership with Pinnacle Entertainment Group, creators of the award-winning, best-selling Savage Worlds roleplaying game system. The companies are developing a licensed tabletop RPG based on the critically acclaimed ongoing series The Sixth Gun, by writer Cullen Bunn, artist Brian Hurtt, and colorist Bill Crabtree.
“Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ve loved roleplaying games since I was in second grade,” said Cullen Bunn, writer for The Sixth Gun. “Even though I don’t play nearly as much as I did during my heyday, I still collect games and roll dice with friends when I get the chance. I always felt there was a natural chemistry between comics and gaming, and I’m absolutely thrilled to see The Sixth Gun being developed by Pinnacle for roleplayers everywhere! I think this is a game that will appeal to a lot of people on a lot of levels. It has fantasy, horror, action, and—of course—gunslingers a-plenty. We’ve gone to great lengths to develop an exciting world for the comic book series, and now gamers can add their legends to the landscape we’ve set up for them! I know my gaming group will be going through a few Sixth Gun RPG adventures!”
Shane Hensley, creator of Savage Worlds and owner of Pinnacle Entertainment Group, said, “I couldn’t imagine doing another Weird Western after our own Deadlands, but then I read Cullen and Brian’s work and I was blown away. I grabbed everything Oni Press published for it and was hungry for more. That’s when I realized, who better than Pinnacle to wield The Sixth Gun? We jumped into it with both guns blazing and were thrilled to bring Scott Woodard in as the lead designer. When the smoke cleared, we wound up with something I think fans of both Pinnacle’s games and Oni Press’ comics will LOVE. And just wait ‘til you see the miniatures—especially General Hume!”
“We’re beyond excited to work with Shane Hensley and Pinnacle on this game, which will let fans create and have adventures inside The Sixth Gun universe. As the creators of the definitive Weird West roleplaying game Deadlands, there’s no better publisher to bring The Sixth Gun to tabletop,” said Oni Press Senior Editor Charlie Chu.
Debuting for retail later in 2015, The Sixth Gun roleplaying game launches a Kickstarter starting on May 26th, to give fans of both The Sixth Gun comic and tabletop gaming an opportunity to pre-purchase the game with exclusive incentives and gaming accessories related to The Sixth Gun RPG. The highest tier reward, True Fan of The Sixth Gun ($600, limited to 5), offers backers one of everything, plus a few cool extras which aren’t possible in normal distribution channels—like the chance to play in a game at Gen Con Indianapolis Game Mastered by Cullen Bunn! For backers looking solely for digital game content, the reward tier is $25.
