CCC 285 - The John Cullen Interview

John Cullen joins Brian Dunaway, Joel Duggan & Matthew Ducharme to talk about his fantastically absurd Daily Comic including fan favorites like Gramfel and Ghost & Skeleton

About the artist:

John Cullen – Not the former Canadian Hockey Player or the curler turned comedian Joel!

About the work:

John has been creating a (near) daily comic since 2013, encompassing everything from musings on life, to riffs on pop culture, and everything in between. Speaking about himself in the third person makes John think he sounds like Doctor Doom. He is not yet certain whether this is a good or bad thing.


Where to find: Social media links, etc.

You have several distinct comics that you rotate. Do you have a system or is it just whatever hits you? Gramfel is what brought you to my attention. I also like your semi-autobigraphical “Artist” stories. but I am also fond of the gamer life comics…so I like it all.
