    I hope I can fit this show in between Arrow, Amazon, SHIELD, Walking Dead, Talking Dead and Comic Book Men while still getting out to the theatre to watch Superman, Justice League, Avengers 2, Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, Amazing Spider-Man 2, Green Lantern 2, X-Men Last Stand 2, Wolverine 2, Lobo, Ant Man, Kick Ass 2, Red 2, Clerks 3, Star Trek 12, Star Wars 7, Sin City 2, the 300 prequel...

    Last year this time, you could buy the first issue really cheap. I bought a couple after hearing a TV deal had been done. While I don't expect to see it go up like Walking Dead, I did see today that the couple of first issues on Ebay were already rising in price and way out of what I paid for any.

    sounds neat, but I've been wary of nbcs shows of late.

    they ran heroes into the ground.
    they had that wierd alien show that went no where.

    and the less said about revolution, the better.

    here's to hopefully good storytelling and and awesome ride. :)

    Comics have always been part of entertainment.
    Just look up old time serials and half of them were based on comic books

    The Sixth Gun is great and its creators deserve the added spotlight of developing the book into a show. BUT...NBC has been canceling shows left and right and executives have said they want more broad and less niche shows. What is more niche than a supernatural western based on a comic book? I hope it makes it to series and works out for all involved.

    When people who don’t read comics ask me what they should dip their toe into I have a list of about 30 titles for them, depending on their genre preference. Sixth Gun is high on my list and, I’ve always thought, naturally cinematic.
    But many years of bad experiences has taught me it’s never worth keeping my fingers crossed for TV/movie adaptations - the odds against it even being halfway watchable are astronomical. Seriously - does anyone need two hands to count decent comic book adaptations? I may hope for good but I expect BAD!

    Yes, but it has certainly kicked into overdrive the past 10 - 20 years.
