We all know that the bounty hunter Billjohn O'Henry died at the battle of the Maw. But that death was not the end for him. Nor was it the beginning of his story. This yarn takes a look at a story from Billjohn's past as he embarks on a quest to save the life of his beloved Sally.

    Geek Sushi - Peter Rodriguez Mar 11, 2015

    This series will be short as it is planned only as a three issue limited series, which leads me to my lone criticism in that a character like Billjohn O'Henry deserves a much more extensive account. That being said, it is obvious that this is not about quantity but quality. At the beginning of this review I mentioned joy and hope. The joy is reading everything and anything related to this amazing western horror. The hope is that Bunn has many more stories like this that are out there just waiting to be told. Dust to Dust #1 is a personal and impassioned tale of one of Bunn's most beloved characters, and the best The Sixth Gun prequel I have read yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Allen Wiggs Mar 14, 2015

    All in all this is a solid first issue. If you read Sixth Gun it is a must have issue, detailing the exploits and life of a wonderful character who was cut down too soon. But I also feel that someone new to Sixth Gun could read this and enjoy it. There is still a fun Wild West narrative that is slowly leading to more supernatural happenings. Someone picking up this issue could find out if they like the world and the characters and then once this mini series was over, begin the epic that is Sixth Gun. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 16, 2015

    I love "The Sixth Gun," but "The Sixth Gun: Dust to Dust" #1 is a comic by the numbers. I expect something a little more exciting and wondrous from both this series and the creators involved. In the end, it struggles to do anything out of the ordinary, and that's a real shame. In a difficult market, just-average simply can't cut it for long. Read Full Review
