Oni Press announced today at Comic-Con that their supernatural Western comic book Sixth Gun will soon be adapted into a television show on the Syfy Channel. Written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Brian Hurtt, Sixth Gun is set during the darkest days of the Civil War, where a pistol with incredible otherworldly power falls into the hands of a young girl and awakens dark forces that will reclaim the Sixth Gun at any cost.

We spoke to Bunn and Hurtt on video about the process of adapting their comic into a TV show, and their future plans for the comic.
