Fanboy Rampage: Cullen Bunn Trapped In "Rage-Spiral" At Comic-Con

San Diego Comic-Con. It's an event where members of the comics community can gather together, set aside their various differences, and celebrate their mutual love of the comics medium. And sometimes, to rip into people until they cry.

Fanboy Rampage: Cullen Bunn Trapped In "Rage-Spiral" At Comic-Con


Genetically engineered super-writer Cullen Bunn took to Twitter Friday night to put a collaborator on blast:

Bunn didn't name names, and since he writes approximately 37 ongoing monthly titles, with dozens more we probably don't even know about yet, he could be talking about pretty much anyone in comics. That makes this story a tough one for comics' fifth estate to crack, despite lofty expectations.

Harsh critiques we assume are meant for Heidi MacDonald and Tom Spurgeon.

Still, Bunn's Twitter saber rattling may have been good enough, as there have been no reports of public outbursts, ragings, or collaborators crying after having been ripped into by Bunn.

On Sunday morning, the last day of the convention, Bunn tweeted:

Which got us thinking: Rage-Spiral would make a pretty good name for a heavy metal band, or for an upcoming supernatural horror comic written by Cullen Bunn with a teary-eyed artist.

The biggest question, though, is: was all of this a brilliant, viral promotional stunt?!

Fanboy Rampage was a blog by Graeme "Graham" McMillan dedicated to the funniest, most ludicrous and most inappropriate comic book back-and-forths online. McMillan has moved on now, becoming a proper journalist for the likes of The Hollywood Reporter and Wired but he gave permission to Bleeding Cool to revive his great creation.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
