As a former Memphis resident, I was glad to see Memphis as part of the plot in Issue #23. I’m writing to suggest considering MidSouthCon as a possible convention to attend. The deadline for professional guest applications is November 30, 2012. Online application at http://www.midsouthcon.org/guest-app
Hey Cullen! Congrats on Sixth Gun at NBC. Gonna’ be the all-ages Kirkman. I have read Sixth Gun forever and reviewed it a couple times at the blog and we are SO excited for you about getting a piece of that fame pie. Also, us because we get to watch it. Take it easy, you successful genius.
P.S. Don’t let execs take out the thunderbird.
It was great to meet you this weekend at the NYCCC. It was my first time going and it was amazing to see how the writers and artists of different comics replied in such down to earth ways with fans.
I attended the Writers Unite panel and found the information very helpful, but I still have a few questions. The main one being, is there a way of formatting a story for comics? I’ve written a novel (It’s about werewolf in Hoboken, NJ.), and I have two feature length movies under my belt (One was about college life and was made, the other about post-apocalyptic zombie life), but I’m just not sure if there’s any specific way that the story needs to be presented in terms of prepping it for comics.
Thank you very much for speaking on Friday and for reading this e-mail. I know your inbox is probably flooded right about now with messages like this, but thank you in advance for any help you could give.
Big fan getting bigger both in my actual size and reading everything you write. A friend of mine attended NYCC this past week and Friday morning I saw that you tweeted that after the ONI panel that day, they would be selling ashcans of Helheim. So I texted him and asked him to get one. When he showed up at the booth, the folks working there seemed to think this was priviliged information that he shouldn’t have had. When he tried to refer them to your tweet, it was no longer there. I do want to apologize if this caused a problem. I’m just a big fan who wants to get my grubby mitts on everything you are involved with.
Keep up the great work,
Thanks so much for being on the panel Jim Zub moderated at NYCC! Hearing you guys talk about writing and pitching creator owned work was one of the highlights of a great con experience. I am totally psyched to continue writing and push ahead towards the next step in my career.
I just read Sixth Gun #26. The last pages, man. There’s something twisted and dark living inside you, and I mean that in the nicest possible way.
My name is Justin, we spoke a little bit a NYCC about getting into the industry
(I was the guy that wrote Hopeless a mean note and then demanded that he call Jason Aaron and give me info on Iceman.)
I was wondering if you could email me, and in return allow me to email you a script that i have spent a lot of time on. I understand that you are a busy man but any comments or incite you could give would be very much appreciated.
I’ve attended MidSouthCon a couple of times. Would love to attend again sometime.
Check the Process section of this site. I’ve posted a script that’s pretty close to the one I currently use.
Hey there! Not sure what could have happened there. The books were at the Oni Booth starting Friday morning and were there all weekend. Shoot me an e-mail and we’ll work it out.
As a fan of your work, I am excited to have heard you will be the writer for Fearless Defenders, I have collected all the Defenders comics since the early 70s.
Its great to see Mysti Knight getting a shot in Prime Time, and Valkyrie too!
Just wanted to throw out an idea. Monica Rambeau. A Black female, very powerful, and so under-utilized by Marvel. I am married to a Black woman, with a 2nd daughter on the way. So I always have my eyes out for Black women in comics. Were Fearless Defenders not only all female, but with 2 Black-female characters, that would definitely be something that would catch the attentions of my wife n daughters as well. I don’t want to be political (I am just a dad with a comic loving Black daughter/wife, and another daughter on the way), and its so hard to find headlining Black females in comics. Its still an overwhelmingly white/male genre. And, Monica Rambeau is a darn awesome character, by no means would she be considered a quota-filler.
I wanted to invite you as a guest to the Phoenix Comicon (May 23-26, 2013). What is the best way to get in touch with you about the possibility of booking you as a guest.
Did you ever work at a comic shop? For some reason, after reading your interview that was posted on Comic Book Resources, my brain went back to the days I lived in St. Charles. If not, my apologies. I really enjoyed your Fearless series, the Wolverine issues, sad to see that end and looking forward to the new Fearless series, already on my pull list. Thanks for your time.
Hows it going?
I’m doing a research project for college (Dublin Institute of Technology) and I just thought I’d try pick your brain on a few things. I’m sure you’re very busy with all the titles you’re working on (loving Venom and can’t wait for Fearless Defenders by the way)so I’ll leave the questions here anyway for your own casual ponder. Thanks!
What does your comic book collection mean to you?
Do you think that people within the comic book community feel unique or distinct by collecting comics?
lastly, What is your stance on Variant covers? Are the prices justified? Do you think they represent better a community of cultural consumption rather than the comic book community?
Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
All the best,
My comic collection means a lot to me. As a kid, I built up a huge collection of comics (including a run of Uncanny X-Men, Amazing Fantasy 15, and Spider-Man 1) but I sold them all to pay for college. Nowadays, I’m trying to rebuild parts of that collection.
I don’t know that anyone in the comic community feels distinct or unique when it comes to collecting. Some creators are collectors, but many are not.
I like the idea of variant covers. I don’t usually buy that many unless the cover really speaks to me. I guess different shops charge different things for them? Where I buy my books, variants aren’t usually priced too outrageously.
I did work at a comic shop! The Fantasy Shop in St. Charles!
I’ll shoot you an e-mail.
Thanks for the message! I really appreciate it! I love Monica Rambeau as a character. In fact, she almost appeared in FEAR ITSELF: THE FEARLESS. I don’t want to say too much about the team, but I can tell you that if you have a favorite Marvel lady, chances are she will appear in the series at some point.
I really enjoyed The Fearless when it was out and was hoping for a follow-up series…and now come February it gonna happen. I did not read the Fear Itself mini series, but the Fearless series caught my interest based upon Valkyrie being a central character. Month after month and issue after issue, I wanted to read the next one. The full 12 issues were fantastic and never let me down. I am very excited to read this new series and see what direction you have for the series and the other cast of Valkyior.
Each month of preview covers just get me more excited than the last, and honestly, this is the only new series coming up for 2013 so far that I am really looking forward to. Since issue 3′s cover has just been shown and Hippolyta has been announced as the newest member, are you going to tell us how she came back from the dead? (I was a fan of the Incredible Hercules series, so I know what happened to her). Also, now that there is a demi-goddess from Norse myth and Greek myth, will we see myth connections in some of the stories? And could Hercules make a guest appearance? I mean besides the gags about him and his manhood, he could be a great asset to the Fearless.
After reading a few article about your Ultimate Wolverine story, I’m looking forward to that series as well and the story about his search for family. From what I read, I know you adopted your son from China (IIRC), well, my wife and I adopted our daughter from Russia a couple of years ago. So your upcoming Wolverine story now has me more interested than I already was. Are we going to see any preview art soon?
Take care and thank you for the great stories!
Wanted to take a few moments to congratulate you on your recent success with NBC. Hoorah!
I’ve really enjoyed reading The Sixth Gun and hope to see it soon.
Hey Cullen, as an aspiring writer I’m curious as to how you got Oni to listen to any pitches? Their website says no unsolicited pitches. Also would you be willing to check out one of my scripts and offer advice/critique? Thanks and keep up the great work!
P.s. when is the hardcover for Sixth Gun coming out?
I think Oni will look at pitches that are submitted at conventions… but I think pitches with artwork are preferred.
The hardcover Sixth Gun comes out later this year!
I’m enjoying Helheim a ton. Can’t wait for the second issue, the art is amazing and jumps right into action from the start. The panels seem to move the story along and there is much more to Rikkard as well as his father I’m guessing. Thanks for signing a bunch of books at the st. louis con for me. Will this series be ongoing? I sure hope so!
Hey there! I wanted to start by telling you how much I’ve enjoyed The Sixth Gun as well as your work on other titles like Wolverine and Deadpool. A member of our podcast might have given you one of our cards at Planet Comicon recently, its the one with Henry Pym backhanding a loved one. If there is a chance you could make an appearance on our show please let me know!
We’ve definitely got 6 issues of the series planned! There may be more, though! Stay tuned!
I contacted you a while back when Rick was taken off from Venom. At the time I was concerned because I loved the story he created and I wondered how you would take things from there. I want to say first, thanks for getting back to be at the time.
Second. Wow… Between you and Rick Venom is up there with my favorite comic. I mean I had loved the character and now he has so much life and is thriving as a comic in its own little corner of the marvel universe. I couldn’t really care less for any other DC or Marvel happenings, because I love this book so much.
I’d like to get in contact with you. I would like to invite you to be a guest at the next Tampa Bay Comic Con AUG 23-25, 2013, our first three day convention center show! Ms. Joelle Jones has already agreed to appear and I would love to have the whole team from Helheim there!
Thanks so much!
Cullen. Just wanted to drop a quick note of thanks to you and Brian Hurtt. I met you at the recent Planet Comicon event in Kansas City. ,you were oth gracious enough to spend some time discussing this with me and convinced me that this would be one of my favorite books. Well, your prediction proved correct. I absolutely love the story, the art, and all of the characters. I luckily picked up all TPBs and the current issues. Can’t put them down. In fact, my local comic shop owner whom I’ve been buying from for 22 years, we told to put this series on my monthly pull. I told her that other “old” farts at her store would love the book and I encouraged her to spread the gospel according to Bunn and Hurtt. She normally listens to my suggestions, so hopefully this series will garner new readers. Also, going to check out Helheim….looks just as good. Again, thanks for taking time to meet and greet and sign all of the books. I plan on keeping them until I am resurrected to come and haunt the world with my trusty Beretta .45ACP and Glock .40 S/W…not quite the allure of a Confederate general, but fun nonetheless. Looking forward to Planet Comicon 2014…… Be well
