On February 3, writer Cullen Bunn took to Twitter to fight allegations that he uses ghost writers. This accusation likely stems that Bunn writes approximately 45% of the comics released each month, when other writers struggle to even release a single book a month.
In order to prove ourselves as journalists, Comicspit interviewed numerous ghosts to get to the bottom of this.
We first went to Friendship, Maine to see Casper, one of the most well-known ghosts. Casper said, “Yeah, you know what, I’m a friendly ghost, so I helped him out here and there. I didn’t think it was a big deal. It keeps me busy and gets my uncles off my back.”
We then went to London to see a ghost who wanted to remain anonymous. He was a bit cagier at first than Casper. He said, “I wear the chain I forged in life. I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on of my own free will, and of my own free will I wore it. Is its pattern strange to you?” He then went on to add, “Also, I wrote The Sixth Gunn.”
We went to a local pottery class to confront Bunn about the allegations. While there, he said, “These rumors are absolutely false!”
“I wrote Harrow County,” silently mouthed the ghost of Patrick Swayze, who was standing behind Bunn, reaching his arms around the writer to help him sculpt a pot.
As journalists we are bound by ethics to be an unbiased source, so this information is completely 100% accurate as far as we are aware. Even though we know ghosts are lying entities that keep moving the money from my wallet to the strip club down the street.
We’ll take our Eisner now. Thank you.
