Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
What is it with me lately? First I find a Sci-Fi book I like, then a Fantasy title peaks my interest and now I am in love with a Western(ish) story! The Sixth Gun takes everything I want to see in a Western, action, and mixes it with some elements of horror that I love, zombies and supernatural magic. The story is never dull in this collection. I know that because when I sat down to read it in pieces I finished the whole thing. Bunn does a fantastic job of weaving the elements together to bring a fascinating tale take place, and yet he still leaves so much mystery to this world. The artwork by Hurtt was GORE-Geous. I don’t think there was a single panel I didn’t want blown up to hang on the walls of my house. From his character designs to his interpretation of the story nothing seemed off. I feel bad for sleeping on this one for so long, because now I need to read the rest to catch up. I happen to know that a Mummy is in an upcoming story line so I need to get my neck moving! This book is one of the best being printed right now and should not be missed by anyone.
