The Sixth Gun #3

Written by Cullen Bunn
Art by Brian Hurtt

The Sixth Gun has been a pretty enjoyable mystic Western, but it was a little unclear at times.  With this third issue, Bunn provides a ton of exposition and explains the backstory surrounding General Hume and the strange guns at the centre of the book.

Most of this exposition comes from Drake Sinclair, as he journeys away from the resurrected Hume, and tries to protect the girl that now possesses Hume's gun.  It's pretty clear that Sinclair is hiding some secrets and has a particular goal in mind, and it is this lack of clearly recognizable heroes that makes this book work so well.

With each issue, I find myself liking this title more, and I'm very curious to see where things are headed next.
