Hey there and welcome to this week’s newsletter! Even with the world of comics continuing to implode on a week-by-week basis, I’m going to cut right to the chase on some cool things this week. Why? Well, we’re taking my son in for his next round of braces tom…

It’s been another sleepless night for your pal Cullen! That makes five nights this week where I spent more time tossing, turning, and staring at the ceiling than I did snoozing. I have no trouble falling asleep initially, but if I wake up, even for a second, …

After a few great weeks in L.A., I'm back home, once more writing this newsletter in bed, with one chunky beagle-weenie dog sprawled across my feet and an also-chunky chi-weenie against me. Shadow, the chi-weenie, apparently claimed my spot in the bed while I…

California’s treating me great, as you can see!That’s a pic from the terrifically fun Slashback Video. It was the one place my friends back home demanded that I visit while in Burbank. It’s a great horror movie themed video store and exhibit. I guess we spent…

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 …

It’s been a busy week in the Bunn house. Hmm. I feel like they’re all busy weeks. The snowball, though, is rolling right along, building mass, building speed. Right now in a big way. Now, I’m not saying it’s been bad busy. Some of it maybe. But a lot has been…

You ever feel like you’re flying too close to the sun?Like you’re going in too many directions, trying to do too many things at once, trying to cover too many bases… and you know for certain that your wings are going to melt into pieces and you’re going to pl…

Real talk, right up front. It would mean a great deal to me if you would check out SWUMPWATER, a short film I co-wrote and -produced with Heath Amodio. I’m extremely proud of this movie, and I want it to do well for Pop Films. Also, I just think you’ll dig it…

As I write this, I imagine that I am the least crabby I will be all day. I have a medical procedure tomorrow. Nothing too serious. But I can’t eat solid food for the next 36 hours. I don’t know if you realize this, but I like solid food! The amount of solid f…

Yesterday, I was driving home from grabbing some take-out. I was texting with Cindy, using (of course) the voice-to-text CarPlay/iPhone feature on my car. It was starting to rain, lightly, but rain just the same. I messaged Cindy, “Hey, it is starting to rain…

I almost skipped sending this newsletter today. I went to bed last night (after Cindy and I hosted a party for my son’s 14th birthday) with every intention of just… not. A break sounded pretty sweet, actually. But I woke this morning with this nagging feeling…

Self-doubt has been a cruel companion for me the last few weeks. It struck pretty hard while I was at Planet Comicon. I thought it was just because I was tired. But I haven’t been able to shake it. It lingers. Last night and this morning, it is a beast. Doubt…

First of all, a very happy Mother’s Day to Cindy Bunn! She’s a terrific, loving mom to a teenage son, which means (even though he’s a great kid) she doesn’t get anywhere near the appreciation she deserves. Yet. One day he’ll fully realize just how lucky he is…

For the last couple of years, pretty much since I got so sick after the last C2E2 I attended, I’ve been battling this weird brain fog. It is so bad at times, I don’t want to get out of bed and I definitely don’t want to do anything. Sometimes, I go down to my…

Those of you who know that I’m at a convention this weekend are probably taking bets on whether or not there will be an issue of Vicious Shivers today. But haven’t you learned by now? Always bet on Bunn. In all honesty, I wasn’t sure there would be an issue t…

Another Scriptpocalypse draws to a close. I didn’t get quite as much done as I wanted, but as of right now, I finished 83 pages of script, a couple of chapters of a novel, and a short story. Not too bad. And I hope to get a little more done before the day is …

Late last week, I spent the day at Odd Con, a pretty cool event put on by the “Odd Squad” at Carver Middle School. The Odd Squad is a large, enthusiastic group of kids who get together to share their love of books, comics, movies, role-playing games, and more…

I don’t know if it’s new medication or the stuff I’ve been working on or the stuff I’ve been thinking about or changes in diet or whatever, but I’ve been having the most vivid dreams and nightmares of late. Not dreams and nightmares about monsters or space ba…
