Bun Toons Go Snkt! YAY!

Not rain, nor sleet, nor dead of night can keep this cartoonist from his appointed webcomic...but a computer glitch sure can.

Not rain, nor sleet, nor dead of night can keep this cartoonist from his appointed webcomic…but a computer glitch sure can.

Sorry I wasn’t here yesterday, but OY, the TSURIS I was having with my computer.  Don’t get me started about my car.

Anyway…with the arrival of the new X-Men flick, DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, in the theaters (to good reviews and boffo box office mojo), and with the countdown to the death of James “Logan” Howlett just months away, I felt it was time to finally explain to the uninitiated…

wolverine in four panelsAh…I never understood Freud anyway.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here’s the first time I was ever paid to draw Wolverine….more than twenty years ago!

xmen-painted-coverIt was a poster to advertise the line of X-MEN VHS tapes that were for sale in the early 90s.  I didn’t do the layout for the artwork, I was asked to rework this image (drawn by someone at Neal Adams’ Continuity Associates (I think)…

x-men-night-sentinels-vhs-cover-art….but for some reason, the special projects editor didn’t like the colour or the linework on the Neal version (or the pink glow around Gambit’s card) and had me redraw it in acrylic paint.

But then…

animatedlightleI’ve just recently heard from Steve Lightle that THIS was the original version of the drawing….below for the cover of X-Men Adventures #1, and above for a promotional image that I’m not sure what’s happening with the colours…

3417250-01Which then got RE-COLOURED for the cover to X-Men Adventures #1.

Anyway…I’ve seen this attributed to me as the pencil artist with Steve inking….which so clearly isn’t true.  I may have been the LAST person to get his hands on that image…

Here’s the first Wolverine I ever got paid to draw that I actually drew…

xmen-angel-video-box1To this day, I wish they hadn’t covered up his other hand…it had better symmetry before the logo went on…

Icky Personal Bun Toons! YAY!

…aaand that’s why we can’t have good DC Comics film franchises.

If you’re not familiar with David S. Goyer, or his delightful take on comic fandom, DC characters or She-Hulk in specific, you can go here and breathe it all in like a fine bouquet.   Just remember while you’re reading it, that Mr. Goyer is in charge of the DC movie universe.

I hear the new X-Men picture is pretty good.

Ty the Guy OUT!

SHE HULK 21

This is one of a handful of issues of She-Hulk I co-wrote with Dan Slott.  If we would have known what Mr. Goyer was doing with the issues after we worked on ‘em, we would have sat in Purell while plotting…

Euuurggh.

Sex and Fanboys Bun Toons! Woah!

What's the difference between being sexy and sexist?

What’s the difference between being sexy and sexist?

There’s a T-Shirt design that’s been going around the ‘net (and a convention or two) for a while… one that seems intent on offending women fans at conventions.

I’m all about the rebuttal…Click on any of these images and they will take you to a full sized image, large enough to print out and turn into a T-Shirt transfer.  Free to all…

bitter misogynist

Clearly Not Filling the Cup-

Of course, retaliation just makes everyone ramp up the rhetoric and all of a sudden we have a war on our hands.  So don’t wear these in public after all…

I’ve just never understood the Boys-Only club mentality of fandom.  Why on EARTH wouldn’t anyone want more fans for their favorite thing?  It means sequels get made to stuff fans like if there’s more fans.  And could someone remind me why meeting a woman who shares your interests is instantly threatening to some men?

I’ve heard it said that men are afraid of women because women might laugh at them and women are afraid of men because men might assault them physically and kill them.    So the distrust is a level playing field…

Ty the PERSON, Out!

Just in case you think this comic book misogyny is something remotely new…

Four Twenty Easter Bun Toons….Woah!

Are you seeing talking bunnies?  I'm seeing talking bunnies....

Are you seeing talking bunnies? I’m seeing talking bunnies….

Well, it’s rabbit day, here on Planet Earth, and naturally a cause for celebration around the cartoon hutch.

It’s also 4-20:  A holiday celebrated by a sizable portion of my reading public, so I can’t ignore them either.

So…

See!  Nothing but peace and harmony on the Stoner Easter Holiday.  Imagine it turning out that well if everyone was drunk.

Ty the Guy OUT!

For your bonus moment today, it’s ALSO George Takei’s birthday.  I’m wondering what side of the split holiday he comes down on?

Clearly it's Easter.  Here George is shown trying to make the symbol for Easter Rabbit with his hands.

Bleep blorp. Take me to your leader…

For those who have been following this gripping tale of mystery and suspense, I send you instantly to part three.  For newbies to this thrill-o-rama ride of remembrance, click here for part one and here for part two. Ive always wanted to tell you guys 3 Over the years, I have had many conversations about this event, and I cannot stress enough that I did not misinterpret something, or get confused by an easily identifiable balloon, helicopter or smudge on my glasses.  If all of this had happened to someone else, I likely wouldn’t believe it.

IVE ALWAYS WANTED TO TELL YOU GUYS PART 2

click to enlarge if it’s too hard to read…

There is no way to describe how utterly WEIRD it was when I first saw this thing…to quote Douglas Adams,  “…it hung in the sky in exactly the way that bricks don’t.”   As I said, it was like a really lousy special effect.  As though I was seeing something badly glued onto a photo of the sky, rather than something in the natural world.  That’s why I had to ask other people if they saw it too…it didn’t seem real.

More to the story next week…it gets odder.

Ty the Guy OUT!

This painted cover comes close to recreating my experience, only there was only one of them, and they weren't red, and it didn't fire anything, and it didn't glow.  And I was with my family.

This painted cover comes close to recreating my experience, only there was just one of the objects, and it wasn’t red, and it didn’t fire anything at me, and it didn’t glow. And I was with my family and I didn’t have my car until later, and it wasn’t on a lonely road or anything like that.  Otherwise, it’s uncanny.

If you’re in the TORONTO area, I will be at a Release Party for the first collection of BATMAN ’66 issues, today…. Saturday April 5 at The Comic Book Lounge + Gallery,  from 7-11pm.

The volume reprints my first issue with Penguin and Mister Freeze, as well as a bunch of other swell stories.  We encourage cosplayers and Bat-fans tonight, but please, there is a sixties or Batman theme, no naked John Carters or Conans, thank you.

Come get yer copy signed by one of the artists, and maybe he'll talk to you.

You’ll never respect me again…

I’ve been doing this weekly cartoon blog for a couple of years now, and…

Ive always wanted to tell you guys

(click on the image to expand, if it’s hard to read)

This is one of the few “to be continued” Bun Toons I’ve ever done, but the story cannot be given its proper space in only one page, and I have Batman work to do this weekend that can’t be ignored.

So stick with me for a couple more instalments and see if you don’t think I’m a complete loon when it’s all over.

Remember….my wife saw it too.  It wasn’t an hallucination.

The story gets better….

Ty the Guy OUT!

What ARE they doing here?  Do I have the explanation?  Can you wait a week to find out?

My wife is away for the weekend, which is why this Bun Toon isn’t in colour.  If she’d been with me last night, probably none of this would have happened.  She’s usually the one who puts a stop to things before they get too far…

Everyone Involved Regrets It Bun Toons! YAY!

I already regret telling you about it...

I already regret telling you about it…

Well, the Cold War is starting up again, we just got through Pi Day, Olivia Chow has announced her candidacy for Mayor of Toronto, and my new Batman project with Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman was just revealed, making me email box a teeny bit more popular than last week…

So naturally I’m Bun Tooning about a special man I met in a special place last week at Toronto Comicon, because I have my ears to the street and my fingers on the pulse of the news.

FINAL ART strip form….and after another awkward pause, we went about our day.

I’m sure next week, I’ll get around to that Cold War thing, but I have my priorities.

Ty the Guy OUT!
