Watched over by her motley band of allies, Becky Montcrief embarks on a Ghost Dance, travelling between realities that the Six Guns have created. However, the Widow Hume and an army of Skinwalkers seek to claim The Sixth Gun for themselves, with battle lines drawn in our world – and ones never meant to be.
Following on from a disappointingly meandering fifth volume, the sixth book takes a little while to hit its stride too. The wandering between worlds seems to take up quite a bit of the book’s pages, but once confrontations kick off towards the end of the volume, it’s hugely satisfying and well worth the wait.
Despite my issues with the pacing, I can find no fault with Brian Hurtt’s superb artwork, which vividly and effortlessly creates the various worlds – with strongly individual characters and quieter moments handled just as well as the more epic battle scenes that arrive towards the end of the book.
With some unforeseen twists taking us into the seventh volume, The Sixth Gun – despite feeling oddly slow to get moving on occasion – continues to develop its characters in interesting and surprising ways. If you haven’t already hopped aboard the steam locomotive to the weird West, what are you waiting for?
