Heave Media asked Cullen—

“Having read the script for The Sixth Gun #1 that you put up on your website, I noticed you put a ton of detail into character and scene descriptions. How do you balance the amount of detail you give in a script while still giving the artist a little bit of space for interpretation?”

Cullen: “Typically, I speak with the artist beforehand, letting them know that, while I might describe a scene or character in a certain way, they still have plenty of creative freedom. They’re the artist and I trust them to bring the story to life. That said, I write my scripts in a way that is, hopefully, entertaining to the artist and the editor. I try to elicit a mood and an emotional reaction with the way I write those scripts. I believe that helps the artist convey those same emotions on the page.”
