Special Edition Podcast

Talksplode #39 with Cullen Bunn of ‘The Sixth Gun’, ‘Fear Itself: The Deep’, and ‘The Tooth’

Show Notes

Fans of writer Cullen Bunn have a lot to look forward to this summer. On the heels of its first anniversary, his occult western The Sixth Gun enters its third ongoing arc, and the second paperback volume is due out in just a few weeks. Later this month we’ll see his other Oni project The Tooth, a monster-stomping, anthropomorphic fang OGN drawn by Matt Kindt. Fans of DC’s magic characters like Klarion the Witch Boy and the cast of Shadowpact will want to pick up “Sorcerer Kings” his four-issue arc on Superman/Batman. Then in June and July, Bunn is hip-deep in Marvel’s Fear Itself, with one-shots for Black Widow and the FF, and a four-part Defenders series called Fear Itself: The Deep. Paul talks to Bunn about all of these titles as well as the task of juggling creator-owned and licensed projects, capturing the distinct voices of Natasha Romanoff and the Silver Surfer, Bunn’s recent transition to writing full time, and one creepy-ass goat.

  1. I loved the first trade of The Sixth Gun.  Can’t wait to give this a listen.

  2. Great job Paul, really excited for Tooth

  3. Thanks for the interview Paul, loved the first Sixth Gun issue. 

    I also just bought the first Damned trade… it is billed as a mini-series so I assume no more issues on the way… 🙁

  4. Avatar photo Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    @rjspring  Cullen indicates in the interview that we may well see more of The Damned at some point, so don’t rule it out. 

  5. great interview!

  6. @PaulMontgomery  Excellent!  Look forward to listening to the interview this weekend.

  7. I’m changing my name to Cullen Bunn. It just sounds so delicious.
