Vicious Shivers (Cullen Bunn's Official Newsletter), Issue 128

VICIOUS SHIVERS (Weekly newsletter of Cullen Bunn 🎃)
This is the 128th issue of Vicious Shivers, a (mostly) weekly newsletter for fans of my work. Thank you for subscribing. Please share it with others if you think they might be interested!

Hello from sunny California!
As I write this, I’m wrapping up my first week in Burbank, where I’ve been working as part of a Writers Room for a TV show I can’t tell you about just yet! It’s been a fun experience so far, but absolutely exhausting! I can’t wait to tell you more about the project. I have been posting some (veiled) discussions about the experience on my Patreon, and I’ll continue to do so while I’m here.
So… there hasn’t been as much comic writing this past week, because by the time I get back to my room, I’m simply wiped out. I’ve got some errands/meetings/sightseeing to do today, but when I get back to my room, I’m getting to work on some comics!
Even though I’m away from home, there are some wheels turning.
As I believe I mentioned, I have someone who will be taking over the mail order side of my business. My online store is getting an overhaul. And we’ll be offering some really cool items that have not been previously available. There will be back issues, trade paperbacks, and creator-exclusive variant covers aplenty! Stay tuned on that!
If you are a backer of BEYOND MORTAL on Kickstarter, you know that shipment of those books stalled out. Well, I’m happy to say that as of today we will be picking them up and starting to ship them out again! It’ll take a few days to wrap our heads around that, but we’re pushing the rocks up the hill again!
As I type this, it looks like SWUMPWATER is ONE VIEW away from 3,000! If you haven’t checked out this short horror movie yet, please do! If you like it, hit the like button, leave a comment, and subscribe! See what we were able to do with almost no budget!
Harper Kids is sponsoring a GoodReads giveaway for UP TO NO GHOUL, the sequel to THE GHOUL NEXT DOOR. There are five copies up for grabs, and you can enter here -

Dark Horse shared a couple of great images for my upcoming series SHOCK SHOP! You can order the book now! I hope you will! It’s a flipbook, remember, so each issue has two covers! In this case, we’ve got a terrific variant for the first issue, too–also with two covers!
