October 15, 2015 (Los Angeles, Calif.) - Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios invites readers to see “the Blister” like never before in the latest installment of its Pen & Ink series, Six-Gun Gorilla: Pen & Ink #1. Collecting issues #1-2 of Simon Spurrier and Jeff Stokely’s first collaboration, this 11” x 17” prestige-format book displays Stokely’s original inks alongside new commentary and behind-the-scenes creative insights from Stokely and Spurrier.
Si and Jeff are killing it right now on The Spire, so what better time to look back at the first time they blew us away with Six-Gun Gorilla,” said BOOM! Studios President of Publishing and Marketing Filip Sablik. “Jeff’s work is incredible, and seeing it stripped down to the bare inks is a real treat for us process junkies. The world of Six-Gun Gorilla is strange and exciting, and having the chance to see what Si and Jeff were thinking in page-by-page commentary is a great way to take a second look at the series that set them up as one of the most exciting creative pairings in the industry.”

In Six-Gun Gorilla, welcome to “the Blister,” a bizarre other-world colonized by humans sometime in the 22nd century, which quickly became a hotly contested source of fertile land and natural resources long ago exhausted on Earth. In this new frontier, a rogue gunslinger and his companion wander across a wilderness in the grips of a civil war, encountering lawlessness, natives, and perversions of civilization in a world at the crossroads between the past and the future. The fact that said gunslinger is a bio-surgically modified silverback gorilla toting a pair of enormous revolvers is neither here nor there…
