Last year, we ran a short THE SIXTH GUN Christmas yarn on Comic Book Resources. the strip ran over the course of a few weeks. This year, I’m collecting all the strips here for your enjoyment. I hope you dig them! And–remember–THE SIXTH GUN makes a great gift!
I’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!
Those of you who have been following me for a looooooooooong while might remember the serialized horror tale “Countless Haints.” That story was never finished in prose form, but it lives on! In 2015, I’ll be teaming with the amazing Tyler Crook and Dark Horse Comics to bring the story of “Countless Haints” to life in comic book form! The series, titled HARROW COUNTY, was announced today on Comic Book Resources. Check out the interview and mark your calendars! HARROW COUNTY comes out in April of 2015!
Three new books this week! I hope you’ll check them out!
