The Sixth Gun Reading Order: How to read Cullen Bunn’s western/fantasy comic book?

Like a lot of comic book writers nowadays, Cullen Bunn works for DC and/or Marvel, but also for himself with some self-published series on the side. My favorite is The Sixth Gun and, to be honest, there’s not a real need for a reading guide with this one, but I just use the opportunity to talk about it.

The Sixth Gun is a comic book series created by Cullen Bunn, like I said, and Brian Hurtt that was published by Oni Press. The story is set in the old west, shortly after the end of the Civil War.

It’s a western with fantasy elements (or sci-fi, I’m not quite sure about the way to define it). The story of The Sixth Gun centers around a set of six magic pistols connected to each other by dark powers. They will be used to rewrite the World.

Each one of the six guns is bound to the man that used it until his death. The Sixth one ends up in the hand of Becky Montcrief and now people want to kill her in order to take it back. With the help of the mysterious Drake Sinclair, Becky goes hunting for the other guns, and she’s not the only one.
