His noir/horror comic (and first collaboration with Brian Hurtt), The Damned, was published in 2007 by Oni Press. The follow-up, The Damned: Prodigal Sons, was released in 2008. In addition to The Sixth Gun, his current projects include Crooked Hills, a middle reader horror prose series from Evileye Books; The Tooth, an original graphic novel from Oni Press; and various work for Marvel and DC. Somewhere along the way, Cullen founded Undaunted Press and edited the critically acclaimed small press horror magazine, Whispers from the Shattered Forum.

All writers must pay their dues, and Cullen has worked various odd jobs, including Alien Autopsy Specialist, Rodeo Clown, Professional Wrestler Manager, and Sasquatch Wrangler.

And, yes, he has fought for his life against mountain lions and he did perform on stage as the World's Youngest Hypnotist. Buy him a drink sometime, and he'll tell you all about it.

Format: Paperback
One of the greatest team-ups in the world is unarguably the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. The "Superman / Batman" monthly series gets the graphic novel treatment again with this new collection of issues #78 through #84. The book is entitled "Superman / Batman: Sorcerer Kings" and includes four different stories.

The first short story is titled "Who Would Win?" It centers on an argument between two boys over who would win in an epic showdown: Batman or Superman? We get to see the imaginary scenarios the boys make up in vivid pictures provided by artist Ed Benes. Writers Joe Kelly and Jack Kelly do a great job getting into the minds of teenage kids verbally duking it out over their favorite super hero in the tradition of, "My dad can beat up your dad!"

The second short story features Huntress and Power Girl coming up against a powerful alien force in "A World of Their Own." Is it hostile or just misunderstood and frightened? Brett Booth's penciling perfectly captures writer Amanda McMurray's touching tale.

The three-part arc "World's Finest" revolves around Superman and Batman's century-spanning confrontation with Epoch, the Lord of Time. Using his time-travel device, Epoch bounces from one time to the next in his attempt to take over the world in the 853rd century. Only Batman and Superman can stop the evil maniac. First, they have to figure out how to get out of the time-loop Epoch has trapped them in.

Chris Roberson penned this sci-fi adventure which is fun because of the different versions of the Caped Crusader and Last Son of Krypton we get to see in the various times they show up in. Artist Jesus Merino provides our heroes with some eye-catching futuristic costumes that make things interesting as well.

Superman/Batman: Sorcerer Kings collects issues #78-84 of Superman/Batman, all originally published in 2011. The hardcover edition is decently put together but feels a little cheap compared to other DC hardcovers. There is no dust jacket, DC having opted instead for waxed printed boards of the kind you find on books in school libraries. Extras are limited to four pages of cover sketches.

Story-wise, Superman/Batman contains four different stories. Of the four, two are very brief (neither one the length of a single issue): one is a clever but also rather dull debate between two children over who would win in a fight, Superman or Batman; the second is an almost incomprehensibly short something (I can't tell if it's a battle, a team-up, or merely a conversation) between Power Girl and Huntress.

"Worlds' Finest," the first full-length story is a spin-off from DC's 1998 DC #1,000,000 (collected in Dc One Million) and involves a time-traveling villain named Epoch who jumps around in time, fights different versions of Superman and Batman, and uses silly "scientific" weapons such as "Omega cubes" and localized "time loops." As a standalone story with no bearing on DC continuity, it's entertaining enough, but offers nothing particularly memorable. Slightly better is the four-part "Sorcerer Kings" story, also a time-jumping tale, which features a number of DC's magical characters, including Shadowpact, The Demon, and Klarion the Witch Boy. Like most Superman/Batman stories, occupying as they do only a sketchy place in DC universe continuity, the story suffers from not having any real stakes.

Sorcerer Kings is an excellent compilation of Superman/Batman stories from the now sadly defunct title -- one of the casualties of the disastrous "New 52". As a special treat, one two-part story within these pages features the return of the "DC One Million" incarnations of Superman and Batman from the 853rd century!

With magic one of the weaknesses of Superman, this "What If" story is great for showing a dystopian future caused by magic. The premise is "what if most of the bad evil magic-user types got together" and the results make a fun read. My favorite part of this story arc is that it included many properties of DC Comics that I want to see again. This series encouraged me to buy past issues of "Scare Tactics" to learn about Scream Queen, and made a compelling argument why a young female vampire sidekick works well with Batman. Stanley and his Monster and Klarion the Witchboy both have a long history with DC Comics, and both need more stories written for them. My only complaint is that the story was too compressed. I wanted more of these characters, this "Justice League Dark" of the future, and if you do too, I recommend finding back issues of Scare Tactics, Phil Foglio's run on Stanley and His Monster, as well as Green Arrow: Quiver (#9-10).

Superman/Batman series is always a welcome read for its various takes on both heroes that may or may not be part of the continuity...which makes it enjoyable....at time. This collection had an interesting idea of a story but somehow a little bit of a let down towards the end. Likewise, the are started great but then seemed became rushed in the last 2 issues.

Don't worry, you won't die if you missed this one.
