Reading Again--The Sixth Gun: Not the Bullet, But the Fall

 Here are my thoughts about this story arc. 


Not the Bullet, But the Fall 36-41

This story arc ran for six issues, published from December 2013 to May 2014. Issue #41, The Grey Witch, is technically a standalone issue, but I include it here as this arc provides a natural lead-in to it. Here are my impressions:

  • Whereas the last arc provided major character development for Becky, this one clearly moves the story into the endgame. Just as I'm looking at my home campaign for this year, with a handful of sessions remaining, this one shows how to raise the stakes and start wrapping up important elements.

  • The meeting between Missy Hume and the heroes, and what happens from there, makes it clear to everyone that this is happening.

  • Does this arc give readers a glimpse into how snakemen are created?

  • The standalone The Grey Witch gives us a deep dive into Griselda's background, which is informative.

  • On the other hand, the decision that Becky makes regarding her pistol at the end of the arc left me perplexed and wondering how it leads into the next one.
