Source: NBC Orders a Pilot for The Sixth Gun
It was announced yesterday that NBC has ordered a pilot for The Sixth Gun; a comic book series created by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt publisehd by Oni Press. Carlton Cuse (Lost) produced the pilot and Ryan Condal wrote the script.
No word yet on how badly NBC is going to mess this up and ruin an almost perfect story. Nor are there any Vegas odds on whether this will be aired before Brian Michael Bendis’ long promised Powers pilot for FX.
Stay tuned to The Outhousers, once called "The greatest website of all space and time" by The Doctor, for any updates.
Until then, we can take solace in that Cullen Bunn, friend of the site, is doing well and that independent creators and publishers are gaining well disserved attention.
If you suck and aren’t reading The Sixth Gun here is the official synopsis from http://www.cullenbunn.com:
During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time, the Sixth Gun, the most dangerous of the weapons, vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way.
So, yea, get on buying that you fools!

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
