MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK

DISCUSSION
THE SIXTH GUN: HELL AND HIGH WATER
The Six — the cursed pistols that can destroy the world — have fallen into the wrong hands. Griselda the Grey Witch and her henchman Jesup Sutter now control the weapons. As they prepare to use the guns to throw open the gates of Perdition and condemn the world to darkness, they are opposed only by a ragtag group of desperate heroes. But Drake Sinclair, Becky Montcrief, and Screaming Crow have a few surprises in store for the ageless witch. As the apocalypse dawns, a vicious gunfight rages in the streets of a nameless city!

    Been listening to the podcast for a good number of years now and do enjoy it (thanks for all of the hard work!), but recently I have to say every time Ashley Victoria Robinson makes one of her “white guy” quips (and the more recent “Jesus people” quip) the entire podcast just grinds to a halt for me as these remakes come off as very condescending.

    Seems kind of conspiratorial, in a wacky way, to believe a for profit company is canceling money making comic books because they are against diversity.

      You would think, but there was also a directive to cancel the Fantastic Four because of a grudge…
