Tragic Yet Commercial Bun Toons! Yay!

May we all have a moment of silence for my integrity...

May we all have a moment of silence for my integrity…

The Story so Far:

The rabbit has been killed, tragically, suddenly and with the potential to attract millions of new readers…

In lieu of flowers the family would prefer donations directly to their bank account.

Ty the Dead Guy Out!

It all started here, you know…

robindeath2

Well, that was the first time killing off a major character was a purely crass, commercial decision…

unless you count this

unless you count this

which was a reaction to the death of Elektra, who was done because of the successful killing of Jean Grey, who was killed shortly after…

Wait…didn’t it really start here?

At least modern audiences have wised up to this stuff…

I’m leaning ethnic, but I shouldn’t rule out handicapped or something in the GLBTQ territories…there’s big money in those emerging identities.

I know this will be considered a risky move for the future of this beloved web-toon–to carry on without the only continuing character in the strip….but I can’t exactly do alt-cover second printings with a foil wrap, can I?  I have to get in on the sweet, sweet green any way I can.

Don’t make me actually earn it.

Let us now have a moment of silence, for the little white rabbit, who has delighted us all for so long–Struck down in the prime of life, to fulfill his duties to the corporation.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Apparently, I’m not the first person to think of this…

I'm fairly certain it follows the same plot...hit by a bus, Spider-man arrives to comfort the dying, etc.

Real Quick Bun Toons! YAY!

I'm late...I'm late...for a very deadline date...

I’m late…I’m late…for a very important date…

Whoops!  My new Batman series is on the stands, which means I haven’t got time to mess around!  I owe the office another issue yesterday.

But there’s always a speedy Bun Toon.

Buildings and other people take time.  Who has the spare minutes?

In other news…

It’s been 75 years since Mr. Finger and Mr. Kane first created the Bat-Man in Detective Comics #27.  To celebrate that event, DC Comics is releasing a special commemorative edition with a reprint of that first story and a new story by some current creators…

qq6xqrscc29pqhiu6przThat in itself, is not that big a deal.  They do that every couple of years with their flagship characters…

But this time, something NEW happened.

Bill Finger got a cover credit for writing that story.  That’s never happened before.

Score one for Bill.

Thanks DC.

Is that the hint of a smile, Bill?
