The Sixth Gun RPG Coming from Pinnacle Games

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.

My “Rules” For Comic Scripting

When I’m writing comics, there are a few guidelines I try to follow. These are ideas I’ve pulled together while writing hundreds of scripts, reading great comics, reviewing scripts, and talking to artists and other writers. They aren’t hard and fast rules. I break ‘em all the time! But keeping them in mind helps me feel like I’m in control of my life.

I offer some of them now in hopes that you’ll find them useful in your own comic scripting endeavors. Maybe you’ll find them helpful. Maybe not. You might disagree with them completely! And that’s all right. Read More

Hellbreak!

My new comic book series HELLBREAK was announced a while back, but due to forces beyond our control, the book was delayed until 2015. That’s all right, because in March HELLBREAK will debut in a big way!

Not black ops. The blackest of ops. A group of elite soldiers has been recruited by the shadowy Kerberos Corporation for a series of special missions—breaking souls out of Hell and returning them to their bodies… and replacing the evil demons possessing their mortal shells here on Earth.

A gothic, action-packed vision of Hell in a new ongoing series that evokes Inception and Aliens by way of John Carpenter from the creative forces of writer Cullen Bunn, artist Brian Churilla, and colorist Dave Stewart!

First and foremost, the regular edition of HELLBREAK issue 1 will cost only $1! It’s an extra-sized introduction to the series. At that price, why wouldn’t you give it a try?

There will also be a few special edition variants for the series. Jenny Frison, Cliff Chiang, and Dave Johnson have all contributed special covers for the issue. If retailers order 50 copies of HELLBREAK #1, they unlock the ability to order the Frison variant at will. At a order of 100 copies, they unlock the ability to order the Chiang variant at will. At 150 copies, they can order the Johnson variant at will.

Pre-orders for HELLBREAK #1 start on December 15th! Issue #1 goes on sale on March 11th!
