Reading Again--The Sixth Gun: Days of the Dead

Here's the second series that I'm reading again, Days of the Dead


Days of the Dead 1-5

These three issues were originally published from August 2014 to February 2015. Here are my impressions:

  • Right away I have a question. How did the totem—a skull encased in blood amber—go from its location in Valley of Death to being found in Days of the Dead? Is the implication that a whale swallowed it and then revealed it to Zhang Ling?

  • It's cool to see a story set in Chinatown.

  • I'm curious that there is an incarnation of the God of Death in this story (as well as in the last one), but the Faith skill, and the Miracles Arcane Background, are not options for heroes in the RPG for this setting.

  • The comic provides a good example of how to narrate combat, especially the big battle on Alcatraz. There are a lot of combatants involved, and a big ritual being conducted; this is definitely fast, furious and fun stuff.
