The Sixth Gun RPG

SavageWorldsComingAttractionsI’ve long said that the world of The Sixth Gun would make a great setting for a role-playing game. If you agree with me, then you should get your dice ready. Pinnacle Entertainment Group (who are responsible for Savage Worlds and Deadlands among many other great games) has announced the upcoming release of a Savage Worlds source book based on the comic book!

The release date hasn’t been announced yet, but stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

From the press release:

The Sixth Gun series comes to RPGs! The First of the Six strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads Perdition’s flames. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. And the Sixth is the key to rewriting the world. Are you ready to saddle up and ride into the savage world of The Sixth Gun? Based on the Eisner and Harvey Award nominated comic series from Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and OniPress. Watch for more details to come, as well as more accessories, including custom miniatures of the characters from the comics!

Brides of Helheim Pre-Order Form!

helheimorderformBI think we can all agree that pre-ordering comic books is important, right? Let’s face it—your local shop is awesome, but can’t be expected to order every single title that comes out each month. Comic book orders are due roughly two months before the release date, and a retailer has to choose stock very carefully. Many times, this means ordering only “safe bet” comic books, and many great titles slip through the cracks. Pre-order, though, and you let your comic book retailer know that there’s interest in an upcoming book.

This is good for you, because you can make sure you don’t miss out on the stuff you want to read.

It’s good for the retailer, because a pre-order means the sale is a “sure thing.”

It’s good for other readers. When a pre-order comes in, stores will often order additional copies for the shelf. This gives new readers the opportunity to check out a book they might not have normally heard about.

It’s good for publishers and creators, because when people order the books, we can keep telling great stories.

While I think pre-ordering is  especially important for creator-owned titles, this goes for pretty much any comic book. Please don’t assume that your shop will carry a particular title!

To pre-order, all you have to do is head to your local comic book shop (if you don’t know where that is, you can visit this link to search them out!) and let them know what books you’re after.

To make it even easier for you, we’ve created this BRIDES OF HELHEIM pre-order form. Print it out, fill in some information, drop it off at your shop, and they’ll make sure you get your books!

What is BRIDES OF HELHEIM, you ask? It’s the story of undead Vikings, black magic, sea monsters, demons, sex, and violence. It’s a Viking-era Frankenstein tale, if the Frankenstein monster tussled with witches and demon-bears and monsters in addition to his own self-loathing. It’s illustrated by Joelle Jones, colored by Nick Filardi, and written by Cullen Bunn. The first issue comes out in October, so you need to order by September 8.

For more information on the series, you can give this a read. If you haven’t read the first series (which isn’t necessary to read BRIDES OF HELHEIM but you’ll love it anyhow) you can pick up or order the trade paperback collection when you drop off your order form.

Thanks, folks!

Happy pre-ordering
