Praise for The Sixth Gun:
“Though I’ll probably be going into debt to get caught up, I have the feeling it’s worth it.”
— John Parker – The 15 Best Free Comics on the Kindle Fire
“We’re a year-and-a-half into this series from Oni Press and I don’t think I’ve read a bad issue yet. Shoot, I don’t think I’ve even read a mediocre issue. Each one builds upon the previous while setting it’s own tone and feel. So, whether you’ve been there since Issue #1, or if this review convinced you to give the title a try, you’re going to have a blast.”
–David Pepose – Newsarama

“The Sixth Gun” is one of the best ongoing series being published right now, period. No matter what the genre you enjoy, you owe it to yourself to try “The Sixth Gun.”
–Greg McElhatton – Comic Book Resources
“Whacked-out western horror at its best, featuring an insanely wicked assortment of cold-blooded killers and hellish ne’er-do-wells, as well as art that will blow you away like a Texas cyclone of awesome. An absolute winner in every way.”
–Jason Aaron (SCALPED, WOLVERINE)

–Greg Rucka (STUMPTOWN, QUEEN & COUNTRY)
“You’re lucky. You’re about to be pulled into the world of THE SIXTH GUN just like I was, clinging on horseback into a supernatural West of evocative horrors and characters who
leave their mark immediately. Bunn and Hurtt did not hold back with this book, they came out with guns blazing and I’m ready for more.”
