Brian Hurtt

Artist of The Damned and The Sixth Gun with writer Cullen Bunn

Brian Hurtt got his start in comics working on Greg Rucka’s Queen & Country. This was followed by art on several projects including Queen & Country: Declassified, Three Strikes and Steve Gerber’s series Hard Time.

In 2006, Brian teamed up with Cullen Bunn to create the Prohibition-era monster-noir series The Damned. In 2010 they teamed up again on the supernatural western series, The Sixth Gun.

Brian Hurtt Interview asked Brian “Is there a single moment you can look back to as the catalyst for you wanting to work in comics?”

“I guess you can say that it was more of a natural progression for me. I do remember being 8 or 9 and driving by a large office building and thinking that I didn’t want to work in a place like that. I had no idea what kind of job that would be I just knew I didn’t want to work in a large grey building like that and have to wear a tie and so on. Having established that, my choices began to narrow. I thought maybe being a stuntman would be cool or perhaps a tree surgeon (I liked the idea of a job that required me to climb trees). But those were just the fleeting fantasies of a 7 year-old. When I fell in love with comics I was still at that age where I wasn’t seriously thinking about what I wanted to be when I grew up. But, when I did get a little older and entered that age where you start to think about what you might want to be when you get older there never seemed to be any question–I wanted to draw comics. It was just a natural extension of who I was–I was already drawing all the time and making up stories and comics became the outlet for that.”
