I’m sucker for a well made fan animation; be it Wolverine Vs The Hand, The Walking Dead Opening Titles or Evil Dead: An Animated Tribute. However, whilst my appreciation of these ‘unofficial’ tributes usually evaluates them from the informed perspective of a fellow fan, Adam Condal’s trailer for Cullen Bunn & Brian Hurtt’s The Sixth Gun comic worked its magic by enthusing my interest in a series which had slipped under my radar. Passing on his addiction seems to have been Condal’s (successful) goal:

The Sixth Gun is an ongoing comic book series that takes place shortly after the civil war. It’s a compilation of a few genres – at its core, it’s a western – but is infused with some sci-fi and horror elements as well. The artwork is fantastic and the story is badass – I was reading it on the Comixology app for iPad – it’s really cool, you kinda scroll through the comic frame by frame and it animates all the transitions in between.

I thought it would be fun to create a trailer for the series in that vein. And it was. Nice little side project.

    great video! I’m going to have to go ahead and reread the comics again after that.

    You bastard. I clicked on that video from the kickstarter, was all ‘meh, supernatural western, didn’t they do that in Deadlands? Pshaw, I say, pshaw!’ Then by the end of the video I was all “Now where do I give them money for this fine RPG based on this fine looking story?” Now it seems I have a new graphic novel series to add to my small and exclusively snootily elite list.

    Pshaw y’basterd!
