Artist Alley: Cullen Bunn

The creator of The Sixth Gun, Cullen Bunn spoke with Matthew Sardo about the creative process and Bunn’s childhood influences. The Sixth Gun will conclude the series at issue 50 later this year.

What book did you read, that made you want to get into the comic book industry?
“When I very young I drawing comics books. I was a terrible artist but I was drawing comic books and writing stories. The book that made me love comic books, in the 70’s there was a book called Micronauts which was based on a toy-line. And that comic book for what ever reason made me love comic books,” said Bunn.

How would you describe your style?
“I try to tell fun stories, action-packed stories. I want to tell a story that pacing wise keeps the reader turning the pages. At the same time I’m tell you I like fun stories I lean towards darker elements and darker stories as well,” said Bunn.

What’s the best part of working on The Sixth Gun?
“We’re really building a world with Sixth Gun. We’re building a mythology and I like that element of storytelling, especially of that book. I also like the collaborative nature of working on a book,” said Bunn.
