Reno Convention Bun Toons!

I'm in the sunshine, all you snow covered Canadians, you!

I’m in the sunshine, all you snow covered Canadians, you!

Hey there internet family.  I’m not at my desk today…I’m not within a thousand miles, or even my own country at the moment, as I’m in RENO, NEVADA for the Wizard World Convention this weekend, signing the comics and meeting the peoples.

Normally, I don’t put up a Bun Toon on convention weekends, and I run an old one, but today, we’re doing a slight variation on that.

See, I was asked to give the Wizard folks an image to do up as a poster for the convention, and the one that was decided upon was my Bun Toon about Batman without Bill Finger.

The original art for that was pretty low-rez and sloppy as it was for a Bun Toon, not a poster.  So I did up a proper, put-some-effort-into-the-artwork version of this year’s most popular Bun Toon and this is the result…available as a poster in Reno!

ALSO exclusively available in Reno is my alt cover variant for Superior Iron Man #1

But…since you guys are so good and deserve it, here’s the cover without the trade dress, only available RIGHT HERE at Bun Toon Central!

My wife Keiren did most of the colour work on this one.  Knocked it out of the park, she did.

Chain Smoking Bisexual Bun Toons! YAY!

Not the rabbit...he's wholesome

Not the rabbit…he’s wholesome.

There’s so many Comic Book related TV shows on the air this season that a dedicated fan cannot keep up.

But worry not, I am here to make sure there’s nothing you’re not privy to…here is…

It’s actually a hell of a show, pun intended….and but for the empty vessel of an actress playing Zed, they’ve won over the viewing audience at casa Templeton-Smith.

Who says this isn’t the DC age of odd TV?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Your bonus moment today is completely unrelated to Constantine or sorcery in general, except the kind of sorcery you get with cleverness.  I recently came across some of my artwork being used on one of the most wonderfully fun websites on the internet called SUPER-TEAM FAMILY: THE LOST ISSUES!  Here’s the image…

batman samurai jackThat’s my cover from Batman and Robin Adventures #20 being used, only the original DID NOT have Samurai Jack on it…that was added by the fun team at SUPER-TEAM FAMILY: THE LOST ISSUES.

Here’s another one they did, using artwork I drew from the famously pulped Elseworld’s Annual some years back…

Holy cow!  That’s a Jack Kirby Namor added to the artwork!  That’s too much fun.

Here’s one using a Superboy figure I inked over some Kevin Maguire pencils…

There are HUNDREDS of these covers over at the LOST ISSUES website (only a dozen or so use images from comics I worked on, though), and every one of them is a grand hoot.

Go, check ‘em out if you haven’t already!

HALLOWEEN AFTERMATH BUN TOONS! YAY!

Like a Zombie Jesus on All Saint's Day, I return from the dead.

Like a Zombie Jesus on All Saint’s Day, I return from the dead.

Sorry to be away from the Bun Tooning these last few weeks.  Killer deadlines for Batman vs. Green Hornet pierced my cartooning heart and laid me to rest, and then, JUST as I was getting some time off, I was re-attacked by Steve Gerber’s KIDNEY LADY and cursed with excruciating stones.

But I am back, gentle Bunny people.  Today, as we all recover from last night’s dark reverie, I share a story of the parts of Halloween that we carry with us long after the holiday has past…

BWAH HAH HAH HA HA HA HA!

The ears never fully grew back, by the way.  My cartoon bunny is a lie.

Sigh.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Just in case you need to see it…

my satan head

The only photo of me from that day.  We settled on lipstick instead of wax for the numbers.  The paint is starting to come off from around my nose because it’s later in the evening, and I assume it was something to do with cocaine or the sniffles.

This is what I had looked like the day before…

So it was a bit of a transformation.

For those of you in the Toronto area, come on down to the COMICS LOUNGE at College and Clinton.  I’ll be there all day Saturday raising money for DRAWING FOR DEB.  Deb was a friend of ours who passed away this year from complications of epilepsy and myself and Fantastic Four superstar Leonard Kirk will be there.   Click on the link to see what the fuss is about.

debra jane shelly

And my wife (the room mate of the actress) is hosting a 12 hour COMIC BOOK MARATHON at the same location, in the BACK SPACE!  Come on down, and help raise money for epilepsy research, pass out drawing comics for twelve hours in a row, or recover from your sugar high amongst cartoonists!  Either way, it’s something to do that’s not in your house.

One Fine Set of Bun Toons! YAY!

If only I had more fine days in the week!

If only I had more fine days in the week!

There’s no escaping it.  The dreaded DEADLINE DOOM is still with us (though it will be over in a matter of days).  That means I STILL cannot spare even eight minutes this weekend, without making it impossible to make my Monday deadlines.

Since it’s such a fine day, I thought today I would re-run all my Bun Toons that start with the phrase, “One Fine Day….”.  I did a lot of those in the early years of the Bun Toon, firstly because it was an homage to Don Martin, but mostly because it meant I didn’t have to have continuing characters, or a point of view, or my own comedic voice.

These are a few of my favorites of the “ONE FINE DAY…” Bun Toons.

Is there anything as timeless as an Adam Lambert reference?

My kids have pointed out to me how very odd it would be to have a young person reading a book.  It should have been a Kindle.  Live and learn.

It’s funny because cancer.

I shall be back next week with an ALL-NEW BUN TOON, I promise.  Unless there’s some sort of natural disaster or the Earth opens up.

Ty the Guy OUT!

AND as your Bonus ONE FINE DAY…I even have one about Halloween, which is coming up, so it SEEMS timely.

This last one is actually true, by the way….so it’s also an HONEST TO GOD TRUE LIFE ADVENTURE….another series within Bun Toons, I shall save for some future deadline doom.

Everybody’s Happy Now Bun Toons! YAY!

Isn't it nicer when everyone is happy?  Sigh...

Hey, it’s in the news, it’s about comics, I have to make a comment.

There…I told you everyone was happy.

Ty the Guy OUT!

The bonus moment is just as happy.  It was from Christmas a couple of years ago, and Christmas is always happy.

support the tropesPS:  If you link back to this Bun Toon, try not to give away that it’s all about Jack, that’s sort of the punchline both times..

Award Wishing Bun Toons! YAY!

Clap your hands together and wish...it will mean nothing in the end.

Clap your hands together and wish…it will mean nothing in the end.

This rabbit themed internet cartoon series is nominated for a JOE SHUSTER award this evening as webcomic of the year.

It’s not going to win.  That’s a stone cold guarantee.

However, I have been informed of other plans.

SHUSTER WEBSIZE

I keep alternating between being very honoured and wondering if Canada is just so small a country that they’ve run out of actually deserving people to induct after ten years of doing this, and have moved down to the second tier.

It all started at a five thousand watt radio station in Fresno…where inexplicably they published the above comic book.
