Mama Bunn would be proud--and more than a little shocked--to hear someone call my work insightful and clever. Thanks!3/27/2006 11:06:00 AM|W|P|Cullen Bunn|W|P|This recently posted article stirred a bunch of memories for me. In 1983, the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon was released. An avid player of D&D, I waited for the show with much anticipation. On the day it first aired, my family was on a fishing trip, and we were staying a t Calico Jack's Motel and Marina at Harker's Island, NC. I begged off taking to the ocean so I could watch the show. Funny how many memories are tied to those fishing trips. Watching Dungeons and Dragons on the small, black and white television in the motel room. Reading my cousin's copy of Famous Monsters late at night. Trying to stay within the lines of a Flash Gordon coloring book while the boat thudded and bumped across the waves. And ... oh, yeah ... fishing, too.|W|P|114348719775125623|W|P|Because Venger and Tiamat Were Cool ... But Dungeon Master, Not So Much|W|P|3/23/2006 02:38:00 PM|W|P|Cullen Bunn|W|P|Okay. I know I said I'd post something non-comic related, but this is just too cool to pass up sharing. I love Iron Man. He was my first most favoritest superhero.

On that topic, did you know Orson Scott Card was writing the new Ultimate Iron Man series/gn?

Take care, man.

Steve Marx3/25/2006 04:16:00 AM|W|P|Blogger Cullen Bunn|W|P|I knew he was writing it, but haven't had a chance to look into it. I loved his Alvin Maker novel series.3/23/2006 04:26:00 AM|W|P|Cullen Bunn|W|P|... One of them, at least. My latest column for Broken Frontier details how the cancellation of the Blackwulf lead to my own hiatus from comic collecting. Seek out this 10-issue series by Glenn Herdling and Angel Medina if you get the chance. I'm sure you can find it in a quarter box somewhere. I haven't been posting much lately, but I should have plenty more to share soon (maybe even some non-comic stuff). |W|P|114311735034125771|W|P|The Coolest Comic No One Read ...|W|P|3/16/2006 05:31:00 AM|W|P|Cullen Bunn|W|P|The latest installment of my column has been posted at Broken Frontier.

This one focuses on one of the greatest comic space operas of all time. Dedicated to Toby. |W|P|114190232630783361|W|P|We Got Dreadstar|W|P|3/08/2006 06:40:00 AM|W|P|Cullen Bunn|W|P|Last week, I drove to North Carolina to visit my folks. Many of my stories take place in Midway County, an imaginary backwoods country that is a combination of rural spots in North Carolina and Missouri. Without Newton Grove, Spivey's Corner, Thayer, and Koshkonong, there would be no Crooked Hills or Spider Creek. My parents live in Broadway, NC, and their home (and the land surrounding it) shows up from time to time in my tales. I took a few pictures during the trip, and since I'm too tired after spending 15 hours on the road to write much, I thought I'd share a few.

Here's a shot of our first real stop in NC. After my car's drive shaft came apart like peanut brittle, we had to dump all our luggage and Mr. Chompers at the gas station and wait for my folks to come pick us up. Somehow, we managed to cram all this junk in a compact pickup.

Driving up in the dead of night, we were greeted by the cries of goats. Goats have always creeped me out, especially in pitch black darkness. This is Andy, who likes to butt anyone who isn't looking, and one of his many girlfriends.

Below we have a few shots of the grounds. It's amazing how peaceful it is, especially at night, unless someone approaches the house, at which point the aforementioned goats--along with dogs, chickens, roosters, ducks, geese, and turkeys--let the visitors have it. At about 3:30 in the morning, though, the roosters get bored and start crowing.

Below is a picture of Mr. Chompers and his new best friend Red Dog. I swear--despite the way it looks in the picture--we were not training them for pit fights. They actually got along famously, and they're only playing in this shot.


And finally (for now anyway) here's a picture of me looking rather militant. The gun was real, but I didn't have any bullets. Probably for the best ("You'll shoot your eye out!") but I would have loved to fire a few rounds.

Nice place...I can see why you get many story ideas...
