Boom Announces The Spire At ComicsPRO, From Six-Gun Gorilla Team Si Spurrier And Jeff Stokely

One of Boom's bigger sleeper hits from two years ago was Six-Gun Gorilla, which surprised everyone by taking a pulp era, public domain character and reinventing it into a 2000 AD inspired rumination on the nature of creativity and authorship. Today, during Boom's forward-ushing presentation to the retailers at ComicsPRO, they announced a new series from the same team of […]

Image Watch – Talking Umbral And 'Playing With Magic Words' With Antony Johnston

By David Dissanayake Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten's fantastic series Umbral from Image Comics begins its second arc in today's issue #7.  I've been a big supporter of this creative duo since Wasteland, one of the first ongoing series I started following on a regular basis. Worldbuilders of the highest order, the Johnston/Mitten duo bring […]

Nineteen Thoughts About Nineteen Comics – Superman Unchained, Suicide Squad, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Walking Dead, Avenging Spider-Man, The Crow, Green Lantern Corps, Bravest Warriors, Six Gun Gorilla, Breath Of Bones, Batgirl, Supurbia, Manhattan Projects, Savage Wolverine, Wolverine, Uncanny X-Force, A1 And The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys

Superman Unchained #1 makes a lot of fuss about the foldout page (video here). But my favourite is one panel tucked away near the back. Big weapons, small church… Talking of weapons, why can't Obama hire Harley Quinn as his press spokesman? I mean, it's not like she can do a worse job right now […]

The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys Vs Six Gun Gorilla

Two launches from two companies today. Both involving various post apocalyptic scenarios, and both heavy on the media satire. Six Gun Gorilla reminds me of a Robert Heinlein book through a Jack Kirby filter with just a touch of the Ennis. It's a remarkable reworking of the original, it abandons any period detail and transplants […]

Six Shots From Six Gun Gorilla

Alasdair Stuart writes for Bleeding Cool; Six Gun Gorilla, out this week from Boom!, sounds like the sort of book that will trade off the pure pulpy joy of its title. That joy is certainly there, but this is a Si Spurrier book so it's got a lot more going on besides 'Look! A gorilla […]

Si Spurrier Deconstructs The Promotional Video While Promoting Six Gun Gorilla

[youtube][/youtube] It's a little bit Charlie Brooker. It's a little bit Noel Fielding. But it's mostly Si Spurrier. Talking about his upcoming Six Gun Gorilla comic from Boom! And it's really important that you listen to him. If Warren Ellis was in his late twenties now, these are the kind of videos he'd be making. […]

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Rich Johnston If you are reading this magazine, you must love comics. And one of the things about this hobby that makes it unique and fulfilling is the sense of excitement each new month brings. It is akin to the start of a new baseball or football season, when it […]

Remake/Remodel: Six Gun Gorilla

Si Spurrier's instructions: Six-Gun Gorilla was the star of several short Wild West stories in Wizard during the late 30's. Let's hear from that inestimable Prince of Pulp Jess Nevins for more, as nicked from his forthcoming Encyclopaedia of Pulp Heroes: "Six-Gun Gorilla is O'Neil, a gorilla. In Colorado he is sold to Bart Masters, […]
