Longtime Marvel Comics writer Cullen Bunn says for the first time since he began writing for the publisher, he has no Marvel projects in the works - though he also says the call to return could come at any time.
Bunn's first Marvel Comics work was the story "The Spider's Song" with artist Dan Brereton in 2009's Immortal Weapons #2.
"For the first time in nearly a decade, I am not working on a project for Marvel Comics. Since Fear Itself: The Fearless, I’ve had one, two, sometimes three Marvel books in the works. But nothing now," Bunn said in a statement on his Facebook page. "That may all change tomorrow, but for now I’ll just let the weirdness settle in. It’s safe to say that without Marvel, I wouldn’t be living my dream of writing full-time. After all, they offered me my first exclusive contract way back when."
"This is just the first time in a long while that I’m not accessing my ‘Marvel Projects’ folder on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis," the statement continues. "Just... so... weird. And if I never work on another book for Marvel, I’m happy for the time I spent in the 616 (and all the other crazy universes). All right. Just rambling. I have a lot of work to get back to. Stay tuned for some new project announcements (creator-owned and otherwise) that are gonna knock your socks off!"

As of now, Bunn's final solicited Marvel Comics work will be October 17's Absolute Carnage: Scream #3.
