The Six. A set of cursed pistols with the power to reshape the world. The Knights of Solomon will stop at nothing to
possess this power. Captured, isolated, and tortured, Drake Sinclair is offered a choice: join the Knights’ quest…
or die. Meanwhile, Becky Montcrief’s search for Drake brings her to the town of Penance – a mysterious place
populated by a host of twisted townsfolk. All the while, the Sixth Gun schemes, and the secrets it holds will shake
the very foundations of reality.

Why to watch for it: If you aren’t reading The Sixth Gun, start. This is one of the strongest indie series in comics,
and Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt are only getting better as the story progresses. Perfect for fans who like, well,
comics…especially fans of sci-fi, westerns, and adventure books.
