    There's not much else to say about this issue. The creative team closes it out wonderfully. I've always preferred the way that Bunn writes on this series and this ending reiterates that. Even if you dropped off the series, you should still grab this issue to see how it all ends. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The Sixth Gun #50 is a great conclusion to an epic series. This issue is filled with great storytelling from end to end, and I'm sad to see Bunn, Hurtt & Crabtree's epic go. Should this world ever be revisited, I'll be there to read it with arms wide open, but for now I'll revel in the fact that I received a damn-near-perfect finale and celebrate the amazing series that was The Sixth Gun.

    If you're ever a guest in my home, it'd only be a matter of time before you'd be dragged over to one of my bookcases so that I could introduce you to "The Sixth Gun". It's a damn fine comic, one that I will always love. Read Full Review

    Look, The Sixth Gun has always been very entertaining. The final issue fantastically meets that standard and wraps up a brilliant series extremely well. You need to read it. Read Full Review

    When someone falls in love with a story and becomes so invested in its characters, well that's an amazing thing, and that's exactly how I would describe my experience with The Sixth Gun and my journey with this series over the last few years. One of the most rewarding finales that I've ever read in comics, from beginning to end The Six Gun never lost its spirit. The quintessential supernatural western horror comic, there will never be another like it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Jun 14, 2016

    For 50 issues, Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt have been telling the story about the end of one world and the race to recreate it. This seemingly endless cycle has been the sole purpose of the six mystical guns and Drake Sinclair, their human human agent of destruction and recreation time and time again. The fiftieth issue, the finale of the series, sees Drake Sinclair once again at the center of the chaos of the guns but instead of acting for the guns, Sinclair and Becky Montcrief fight to end the cycle through one final recreation of the world. Bunn and Hurtt conclude the series staying true to the characters. And while they maybe don't give the characters the ending they want, they give them the ending that they deserve. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 17, 2016

    It was almost impossible not to see this conclusion coming. After all, Bunn and Hurtt have been moving the series towards this ending for a while now -- and yet, it's more than a touch bitter. I appreciate that they stuck to their guns, but this cataclysmic ending is hard to get too enthusiastic about. It's the story they wanted to tell and it's executed very well, but it's also an ending that won't encourage readers to return to it, unlike some earlier stories that had real moments of bleakness. It's the curse of a series that takes place in a universe forever tortured by the apocalypse that remakes it; the only proper ending won't necessarily be a happy one. Still, Bunn, Hurtt and Crabtree have wrapped up the series in style, and I'm glad I got to see this conclusion. "The Sixth Gun" always unleashes imaginative creations on its readers, and this issue was no exception. Read Full Review

    It wasn't an ending that I wanted, but the series got the ending it needed. It's a great, if bittersweet, closure to a series that I've loved for many years, and the entire trade collection (once the last trade paperback is released) will proudly be displayed on my shelves as a reminder that I, just like Gord in the comics, will be one of the few witnesses that will remember the sacrifices the heroes made throughout the series.
