This is well illustrated with a good blend of action and wit. The world feels well-developed, the characters intriguing. It's not easy to bring something new to fantasy but this story (so far) succeeds, á la Tad Williams, Brandon Sanderson. Looking forward to what comes next!
I really liked it. The characters are developping nicely and its hard to anticipate what will happen. Main characters are not safe. Being unpredictible is a good thing. Keep up the good work. Can't wait for the next one!
Keeps up the pace of the first one. No way to see the twist coming at the end but I'm already on the edge of my seat to know what happens next. If you liked issue one, you won't be dissapointed with #2.
This is an amazing collection. The art is superb, with a beautiful colour pallette. The story seems simple; defeat the villian running the city, but when that goal is achieved within the first part of the story the characters have to deal with the consequences of that victory, such as death. The monsters within are vicious beasts that destroy people. Not everyone you grow attached to will see the conclusion of the story. But that's ok, you see characters grow, and sometimes fail, as they are tested.
Basically everything about this book is great. I cannot recommend this book enough....
I absolutely loved this first issue! Ireminds me of all the reasons why I love science fiction.
The art was stunning, and the story was exciting. The characters were interesting and individual, which made them easy to keep track of.
I did notice a small amount of repetitiveness in some of the dialogue, but that wasn't enough to distract from the story, so my five star rating stands.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this family friendly space adventure and can't wait to get my hands on issue #2, especially with it ending on such a thrilling cliffhanger!...
Als bekennender Deadlands-Fan habe ich mich etwas zurückhalten müssen, als Pinnacle den Kickstarter für The Sixth Gun für Savage Worlds anpries. Da ich die Comicvorlage aber nie in Händen hielt, habe ich es mir mal ausnahmsweise verkniffen, mein Geld in noch eine weitere Crowdfunding-Kampagne zu stecken. Darum bin ich auch dann später gerne auf das Angebot eingegangen, mir das Ding für eine Rezension anzusehen. War mir da etwas entgangen?
Mal ganz frei von der Leber weg: The Sixth Gun Role-Playing Game präsentiert seine Welt eher schlecht. Generell leidet das gesamte Produkt an einem schludrigen Aufbau, der Übersichtlichkeit vermissen lässt. Damit will ich nicht sagen, dass es als Rollenspielprodukt versagt. Man darf hier nur wenig Handreiche erwarten, wenn einem die Comic-Reihe nicht geläufig ist. Wer The Sixth Gun also im Rollenspielladen spontan aus dem Regal nimmt, könnte später von seinem Kauf eher enttäuscht sein.
Am Setting liegt das zu...
This isn't the soundtrack to a Conan movie, but it may as well be. It has a great epic fantasy vibe to it and makes great background music either for a game, or just while you need something in the background.
A great set of pirate music that draws on traditional seas shanties and classic haunted ship themes.
You get a dramatic opening monologue followed by music that sits really well in the background of a sea faring game. It can just as easily be used in any situation as simple a sound track mix. I used this at a party on "Speak like a pirate day"
