The Long Run takes place outside of our normal continuity of episodes, and features table discussion of an entire work or long selection of a series.

In this episode of The Long Run we talk about The Sixth Gun (which we previously talked about on Episode 148), by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, with additional art by Tyler Crook and color by Bill Crabtree.

From Wikipedia:

The Sixth Gun takes place in the old west, shortly after the end of the Civil War. The story centers around a set of six pistols, each imbued with dark powers. The wielder of each pistol gains an ability unique to that weapon, and is tied to the pistol until his or her death. The guns are numbered, with the titular Sixth Gun belonging to one of the story’s protagonists: Becky Montcrief. The other main protagonist is Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a very pragmatic outlook on the guns. The villains of the series include recurring antagonist General Hume, the Knights of Solomon, the Sword of Abraham, and others vying for control of the guns.

Tobiah Says:

This episode features the long-awaited return of Cade (although sadly just for this episode). We have a good solid discussion on the book, along with digressions (and trigressions) into films, opera, and—as apparently always—mystery/crime fiction.

On the next episode of The Long Run we will be reading Scott Pilgrim, by Brian Lee O’Malley.

Our hosts on this episode are Tobiah Panshin, Joe Preti, Adam Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is The Sixth Gun, by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt. The series takes place some years after the Civil War. It centers around 6 mystic guns, each of which grants a unique power to its wielder. It follows the adventures of two such wielders, as they battle a succession of foes both mundane and mystical who are attempting to seize the weapons for themselves.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Ant Colony, Jem and the Holograms, One Punch Man, Starlight, and Star Wars: Shattered Empire for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Jem and the Holograms, Vol. 1 & Annual.

If you missed our prior announcements, Joe recently sat down as a guest host on Radio vs. The Martians to talk about Batman and Tobiah sat down with Arc Reactions to talk about the Netflix series Jessica Jones.

Our hosts for this episode are Tobiah Panshin, Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Adam Panshin.
