You had me at "6 Gun Gorilla"...

"First and foremost, 6 Gun Gorilla is a Western..." says writer Si Spurrier of the new genre-bending pulp revival comic he's working on with artist Jeff Stokely.  "There are a few things about it which make that description seem a bit unlikely: it's abstractly set in the future, the majority of the action occurs on another world, the central character has had groundbreaking surgery to turn him into a psychic TV-camera for the thrill-junkies watching back home and, yes, it prominently features a 500-pound gorilla with a pair of enormous guns. But, despite appearances, it oozes Western..."

"Blue is basically a suicidal. His whole life has fallen apart. But in this future world, a person without hope needn't waste their life: they can 'sell' themselves to an entertainment network, get fitted with some creepy psychic implants and get sent off to die in a variety of entertaining situations..."

I love that he has solar panels on his pancho. When in the desert, do what you must.
