You Can’t Sue Me Bun Toons! YAY!

But I still have a lawyer on retainer.

Had a lovely sleep in this morning, so you get the Bun Toons in the afternoon instead of the morning.    I still love you, but I love my pillow more.

In a world with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Before Watchmen all coming at me at the same time, I feel there’s a few folks we HAVEN’T heard from in the discussion about creatively appropriating the previously created.  (That’s my new euphemism for plagiarism.  It’s mine, don’t steal it.)

 

Woah.  I thought she was Mona Lisa, and I DREW the damn thing.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS moment of appropriating the previously created.  Because the internet will always out-weird me:

I’m fairly sure she hunts Victorian Vampire-Ninjas.

For every Bun Toon ever (in which I often steal other people’s characters, ideas and jokes) click the ripped-off rabbit above.

  1. Kudos to you for including Holmes, and thus your own foray into Character Reappropriation (TM). Also, I have to say that Lincoln is one of my favourite fictional characters. ;)

  2. OMG, the glee in Dracula’s body and facial expressions is just too precious! :D

  3. It was very difficult to decide until I studied the last panel closely, all became clear then. The Buddhist Vampire is the clear winner.

    Cheers!

  4. Also, I will be tuning in next week for some Lady Maction.

  5. One “T” in Bennet, big guy ;)

  6. Oh, I think the Bennet’s have quite a LOT of “T” all through the novel. It’s practically a ritual with them.

  7. As always, on-point and hilarious.

  8. Is this yet another shot at Alan Moore?!

    • It’s a shot at creation by committee. If everyone got a vote, we’d all be eating pizza. Or we’d be seeing the Mona Lisa’s tits. There’s no Alan Moore message hidden in there unless my subconscious is more devious than I thought.

      • Ah…I think I understand where you got the Alan Moore reference. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is much like the line-up I used in my group (although co-incidentally none of those characters ever appears in any of the LOEG books, though a couple of them are referenced, and Black Terror has been used by Alan Moore, but is included also by coincidence). But I promise, my intention was to make fun of the idea that fiction by democracy lowers itself to baseness, and was not thinking of Alan Moore or the League when I thought of this joke. It’s actually a small scene from a two page story I doodled in a sketchbook about a year ago. I sometimes come across ideas in sketchbooks that make me laugh because I forget I wrote ‘em.
        I gotta stop picking on Alan though. I don’t want people to think I don’t love him to death.

  9. I have given some thought to the issue of Watchmen and I’ve grown tired of trying to argue with people who say that Alan Moore is protesting something that he has done himself.
    Even if he has used other people’s characters he didn’t sell LOEG as a new adventure of any of its characters. LOEG is not the sequel of prequel to anything else and it depends solely on the prestige of its own authors.
