His first such collaboration was in 2006 when Brian teamed with writer Cullen Bunn to create the Prohibition-era, monster-noir, cult classic, The Damned. A few years later the two teamed up again to create The Sixth Gun--a weird-west, epic supernatural fantasy. Spun out of that world, they're now collaborating on Shadow Roads. Brian also contributes to the popular webcomic Table Titans, in which he is the writer and artist of the stories "Whispers of Dragons" and "Road to Embers". Brian lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri. Brihurtt.com Twitter: @brihurtt Bill Crabtree's career as a colorist began in 2003 with the launch of Image Comics' Invincible and Firebreather. He was nominated for a Harvey Award for his work on Invincible, and he went on to color the first 50 issues of what would become a flagship Image Comics title. He continues to color Firebreather, which was recently made into a feature film on Cartoon Network, Godland, and Jack Staff. Perhaps the highlight of his comics career, his role as colorist on Oni Press' The Sixth Gun began with issue 6, and has since been described as "like Christmas morning, but with guns."

Reviews

BOOKLIST -- Eddie, a gun-for-hire, has been brought back from the dead to help settle a dispute between two warring demon families. The broker of the peace has gone missing, and it's up to Eddie to track him down and find out who is playing who before blood spills in the street. Set against a backdrop of Prohibition-era set pieces, this noir mystery hits several classic tropes of the genre, and although that occasionally makes it a touch cliche, the well-crafted story is engaging, and the inclusion of immortality curses and demons dressed in pinstripes brandishing tommy guns is an interesting hook. The main draw for the rerelease of this series is the addition of color; though the old black-and-white format suited the noir style of the original, the colorist brought in for the new volume dazzles and gives the story a whole new dimension. This new feature makes the drab scenery even more grungy and grim, which in turns makes the slick, dynamic characters pop against that background. Definitely a series worth rediscovering in this updated package.
