It is a time before THE SIXTH GUN. Yet, the darkness and corruption that precede the coming of The Six are in their season. The Crossroads is broken. A door to the Spirit World is ajar. And what has slipped through threatens all of creation. It is up to the reclusive witch, Buzzard Wife, to gather the tribes and form a Hunting Party. With the help of the legendary White Wolf, she will lead this elite group of shamans, scouts and warriors into battle. Into legend. Into the Valley of Death.

    The Sixth Gun: Valley of Death is an excellent addition to The Sixth Gun world. It builds on the supernatural mythology, examining the experience of humanity in its struggle against its own finality, death. It examines different paths individuals may take on their journey through life in the characters of White Wolf, Screaming Crow, and Buzzard Wife. Zamudio's artwork with Ryan Hill's colors created a bleak, dry world that sets an ominous tone for the impending struggle against Death. If you are looking to jump into the world of The Sixth Gun or are looking for a supernatural Western, look no further: this book is fun, mysterious, and dangerous. Read Full Review

    The Sixth Gun series has always been a fascinating contrast of historical settings coupled with the supernatural. Brian Hurtts story in this first issue starts off perfectly, building a gripping drama and leaving us with a breathtaking cliffhanger. The one only critique I would garner is that I was confused at first with the flashbacks but everything clicked on my second viewing. A.C. Zamudios art is top notch as usual and the muted style of color used by Ryan Hill invokes the feeling of what a prequel should be. The Sixth Gun: Valley of Death will take you on a wild ride of ghosts, gods and the world of Native Americans and Oni Press has another hit on their hands. Read Full Review

    "The Sixth Gun: Valley of Death" #1 is perfectly fine, although I must admit that -- at this point -- I'm a little more eager to see "The Sixth Gun" main series return for the big final storyline. Still, as a little side step, it works. It's not going to eclipse the primary title, but it's not going to shame it, either; this storyline, so far, fits in nicely. Read Full Review
