The hardcover Batman ’66 Volume 1 is out TODAY at your Local Comic Book Store!! The Penguin issue I did is in there (written by Jeff Parker). (I think the Bookworm one, written by Tom Peyer will be in Volume 2 which I think comes out next month?) This was some of the most fun I’ve had working in comics (right up until my current gig, drawing a six issue Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet mini, written by Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman, with covers by the one and only Alex Ross).
I will be at a Release Party for the book THIS Saturday April 5 at The Comic Book Lounge + Gallery, 7-11pm. There will be copies of the book available and copies of the two issues I’ve done so far (#2 and #6).
I’ll have some of my artwork with me, some prints, and sharpened pencils and fresh markers so I can do sketches and sign books.
This is a party–so cosplayers are absolutely welcome! Pull out your Catwoman or Joker costume and join us!
The Comic Book Lounge + Gallery

Second Floor, Toronto
Saturday April 5 2014, 7 – 11 pm
(from The Lounge’s FB event page) “Put on your go-go boots and get ready to “Batusi” back to the Swingin’ 60s as DC Comics reimagines the classic Batman TV show! In this hardcover collecting issues #1-5 of the hit series, The Dynamic Duo takes on The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, The Penguin, The Mad Hatter, The Joker, and more of the world’s most colorful Bat-villains!
Please join us for a special bat-party at a special bat-time at the Comic Book Lounge (and our neighbours the Temple of Toys) with the one and only Ty Templeton!
On display will be original artwork from Batman ’66 #2 and #6. Ty Templeton will have his Batman ’66 print available and artwork is for sale!
Feel free to come dressed as your favourite hero or villain! Come and do the Batusi — we’ll have someone there who can teach you how! Neil Hefti’s swinging jazz on the stereo, and some Batman ’66 on the small screen!
Libations will be available for purchase. A tall glass of milk helps build strong bones and teeth in case you need to catch the Bat-rope in your teeth!”
You’ll never respect me again…
I’ve been doing this weekly cartoon blog for a couple of years now, and…
(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!

The only reason to become a parent is to warp the next generation…
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…
I don’t take no nine-dollar scam lying down, peoples. I am CONAN of the PARKING LOT!
Ty the Guy OUT!
Of course, there are already comic book heroes patrolling our parking lots.

TWO-HEADED NERD #154: SEXY SPACE MISSION from RHYMES WITH GEEK
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.
….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!
BONUS MOMENT: The very sketch I was working on when the Kryptonian First Contact moment occurred….
It’s always a good day when I get to sketch Big Barda at a convention…
This is not my FIRST Bun Toons set in a Men’s Room. It’s starting to become an annual tradition
A link to last week’s Bun Toon…sort of a re-run, but including a Bun Toon never before seen online!
The Bun Toon archive, where you can search for more urinal adventures. I’m sure there’s dozens….
