Bun Toons FanExpo Re-Runs! What?

You can’t blame me, I’m not even here.

Every year, around this time, I’m a guest at Toronto’s HUGE FanExpo Comic Convention.  It takes up four days this time around, and it’s simply not possible for me to do a timely Bun Toon on Saturday Morning, because I’m already out of the house and at the convention by the time you’ve read this.   Were it not for the con, I’d be doing something about Lance Armstrong, or Mitt Romney, or perhaps making fun of Moonstone Comics.

But even when there’s a will, sometimes there is absolutely no way, and so, dear Bun Tooners, I’m afraid it’s time for the annual PARADE OF CONVENTION RE-RUNS.

At least it’s not the same set of re-runs as last year.  In a way, that’s all-new re-runs.  So yay, for that.

 

At the convention yesterday, I had someone come up to me and say, VERBATIM, what the Kevin Fan said to me in this strip.  The fellow was trying to amuse me by Cosplaying the Kevin Fan, but I have to admit, I didn’t know he was referencing this strip (which is two years old at this point), and I thought it was happening all over again.  When I said “you’re not the first person to compare me to Kevin Maguire, and thanks for punching my ego gonads”.  Then he told me he was re-enacting this strip, and all was well.

For a couple of minutes there, I was going to sob like a school-girl, though.

 

Here’s a convention memory BUN TOON from JUST a few weeks ago.  If you’ve already read it, you may skip down to the BONUS moment and be done with me. If not, it features Jack “KING” Kirby, and is a fun memory for me.

 

If you’re in Toronto, come on down to the FanExpo and say “hi” to me and the missus.  We’d love to see you, and I’ll draw you a Bun Toon fresh right in front of you…but it won’t make it to the internet without a scanner and a computer.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Re-Run Convention Moment:

This story took place after a store appearance with Jean (Moebius) Giraud, in Toronto.  That’s like a convention, only with less security guards telling you that you can’t get back to your car that way.

For last week’s Bun Toon, which involves a dinner conversation after a convention, with the Great Joe Kubert, click here.

  1. Hey, these reruns are in color, aren’t they? Or have my memories already gone sepia-toned at 33?

    What WAS Mignola working on at DC at the time? Phantom Stranger?

    Why…why make fun of Moonstone Comics? Did I miss something, or is it just because they’re an easy target (HA HA!)? Or is this one of them there “inside jokes” that the kids all love and laugh at me behind my back for not understanding? I’m…I’m gonna go cry myself to sleep now.

    I hope some day to meet you at a con. Come to Ithaca, NY sometime! They’ve got a nice little con! Yeah! I’ll link in to ‘em here: http://www.comicbookclub.org

    I can drive to there!

  2. Ah, Jo Anne…
    I’ve gotta admit, you do a dynamic version of her! ;-)
