Morons In My House Bun Toons! YAY!

At least they're not bunnies.  It would make all us furry creatures look bad.

At least they’re not bunnies. It would make all us furry creatures look bad.

I have one wife, four children, a daughter-in-law and three cats.  Without question, the cats are the stupid ones.

There are times I’ve had to remove the string using option #2.  Now you guys know why the bunny wears gloves.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Isis-Comic-Book moment:

mighty isis

 

When I was a kid, MIGHTY ISIS was a live action TV show and a pretty good comic, sometimes inked by Wally Wood or Dick Giordano.  The show was excellent for its era…but that’s NOT who my cat is named after.

She’s named after the cat in BATMAN: The Animated Series, who belonged to Catwoman.

gotham adventures 4Those are my cats leaping about with the rest of Catwoman’s crew from a cover I drew before the current ISIS was born…the Siamese in the image was Isis’ big sister in real life.  It’s all interconnected with me and moron cats.

Dark Knight Rises in FOUR PANELS!

I promise you….I LOVED the LAST Dark Knight movie. Don’t blame me.

Spoilers ahead, and I don’t mean Stephanie Brown.  Though she would have been cool….

Considering that DARK KNIGHT is one of my favorite movies ever, and Batman is one of my favorite characters ever, and that Inception was, like, an amazing movie, my level of disappointment with this bloated, pretentious, wrong-headed car wreck of a film is a heavy burden.

Please, if you enjoyed this movie, don’t send me hate mail.  You’ll never change my mind.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your bloated Batman comic book moment:

Art and story by my friend Rob Walton. It’s better than Dark Knight Rises. Except for the Catwoman bits.

SUNDAY CATWOMAN BUN TOONS! YAY!

For I am human, and the flesh is weak. I have a note from my mom for missing yesterday...

Just because I was at death’s door yesterday, fighting back the steely gaze of the grim reaper, it didn’t mean I wasn’t trying to claw my way back to consciousness and create a Bun Toon.  I’m made of sterner stuff than that, ya goldbrickin’ greenhorns.

The third week of the New 52 is out, and because she’s one of my favourite subjects around here, we check in with Catwoman in the new DCU!

I must confess, the new Wonder Woman was sold out when I got to the store, so it’s possible her issue had a different take on the traditional characters.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS faceless Catwoman Moment:

See, obscuring Selina's face has always been traditional and empowering.

The Top Ten Catwoman Actresses.

Anne Hathaway, practicing to be on all fours.

It was announced a week or so back that Anne Hathaway is going to be the new Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Batman film.  I’m reserving judgment until I see the movie, as Catwoman is a tricky character; the part has made or broken the careers of a few thespians.  Either way, one doesn’t walk away from playing Selina Kyle without some sort of permanent mark.

This woman merely auditioned to play Catwoman in a local theater, and look what it did to her.

Here now…

THE TOP TEN ACTRESSES TO PLAY CATWOMAN.

10:  Halle Berry – Catwoman (2005).

Ahh! Ahh! It burns my eyes!!

I’m not sure Berry can be completely blamed for the unforgivable cluster-coitus that this movie turned out to be.  Though she won the 2005 “Razzie” award for Worst Actress for her part in the film (and showed up to receive it, which took balls), CATWOMAN also won a Razzie for Worst Screenplay, Worst Director, and Worst Film, so everything including the catered food contributed to this crap storm.  When your leading lady calls the final product “…a piece of shit, God-awful movie” you know you’re making a classic.  This film has nothing to do with Batman–or Catwoman for that

And yet, no one was arrested or detained.

matter—instead is based around Egyptian cat mythology, cosmetic-based drug pushing, and the transformation of a recently murdered woman named Patience into a cat-themed vigilante who wears an outfit created originally for Borat/Bruno slash-fic.  Eurgh.  Other than illegal Filipino Batman movies and a Mexican stage musical, there are only ten actresses who have ever played Catwoman officially, so that’s why Halle Berry made the list.  If the Filipinos had only bought the license properly, she would not have made the cut.  Do not watch this movie without a spotter as injuries may occur.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  Halle Berry is one of only two Catwomen I have actually met, and the only one I have touched with my bare hands.

9)  Melendy Britt:  BATMAN, SUPER-FRIENDS, BATMAN/TARZAN ADVENTURE HOUR. (1977)

She was the voice of Catwoman on all the Filmation “Super-Powers” Batman and Super-friends episodes.  I hated what she did with the character, the cackling laugh, the obnoxious purr noises, the entire routine.  Still, she was leagues better than Halle Berry.

Not bad looking for a voice actress, either.

Ms Britt was also the voice of Batgirl, AND the sexy She-Ra, so she knew her way around shapely two-dimensional characters.

8-  Maggie Baird.  BIRDS OF PREY (2002)

Technically, her part on the show was billed as "Mom".

She played Catwoman in the flashback sequences on Birds of Prey, the mildly disappointing but not-awful TV show of a few years back.  Though she was the HUNTRESS’ mother on the series (something ret-conned out of the DC Comics continuity after the original CRISIS) her flashback sequences were fairly rare, and I’m not sure if I remember Catwoman actually having a speaking line on any episode.  She was still better than Halle Berry.

"Mom" out of costume.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  I am the only human on Earth who owns video copies of every episode of the Birds of Prey series.  I’m not sure the producers even kept a set.

7)  Gina Gershon:  THE BATMAN (Animated Series 2005)


Gina took over playing the animated Catwoman in the Batman series that ran from 2004 to 2008.  Gina Gershon certainly has the attitude, the bod, the voice, and probably knows how to handle a nine-tailed whip better than my high school lacrosse coach ever did.

I'm fairly sure we can make a whip out of the outfit she's wearing here.

Frankly, I would have preferred a live-action Gershon Catwoman than the less-than sexy designs they went with for this version of the character.

 

Seriously ugly design.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  This version of Selina Kyle is from the animated version of Batman that got Dan Slott and me fired a few years ago from Batman Adventures.  But I’m not bitter.

6)  Julia Rose: BATMAN: RETURN TO THE BATCAVE: The misadventures of adam and burt (2003)

Amazingly enough, that is not Julie Newmar, Adam and Burt, but an Hollywood reproduction.

She played Julie Newmar (and therefore, Catwoman), in the 1999 TV movie.  This telefilm was a somewhat fictionalized story about the making of the original Adam West show including some amusing nonsense that simply didn’t happen.  Worth a look for Bat-fans, if only to see Adam and Burt together again in the 90s!  Julia has a fairly minor part, seen in the flashback sequences, but hubba-hubba!  Ms. Rose  looked amazing in the Catwoman outfit and pulled off the trick as an impression of a different actress playing the part.

Julia Rose: A little bit of Julie Newmar with a little bit of Anne Hathaway.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  I LOVE this movie, primarily for the Frank Gorshin performance as “Frank Gorshin, the aging lunatic”.

5)  Lee Meriwether.  BATMAN: The Movie (1966)


Ahhh…Batman: the Movie.  Such rich chocolately goodness to behold for the lifelong Bat-fan.  Up until the recent Dark Knight movie, this was my hands down favorite Batman film, and still the one I’ve seen the most times by a wide margin.  (It’s likely over twenty-five times by now).  The scenes where “Miss Kitka” was trying to seduce Bruce Wayne with her goofy Russian accent, I could do without, but she wore the Emma-Peel-With-Ears outfit with flying colors,  and moved all cat-like when she needed.  And have you seen a recent picture of Ms. Meriweather?  It’s not just my  opinion, but a provable fact that Lee Meriwether is the hottest senior citizen on the planet Earth.

The mind boggles. Clearly a deal with the devil is involved.

4)  Eartha Kitt.  BATMAN (The TV Series) 1968

Rrrowrrr.

Orson Welles once called Eartha Kitt “The most exciting woman in the world”.  Considering that Welles worked with Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, Marlene Deitrich, and Deloris Del Rio, Orson knew his way around exciting women.  It’s really about “the voice”.  No one did the purring sound like Eartha because the woman was actually genetically part cat.  It’s in her name, so there’s no use in pretending.  Find a copy of the old musical St. Louis Blues on DVD and tell me the woman in that film isn’t a human-feline hybrid created in a lab somewhere.

Looking at this photo is part of becoming a fully grown man. It's a right of passage.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  Ms. Kitt is the other Catwoman I got to meet.  I played a prank on her at a party once, and my girlfriend (at the time) got blamed for it.  I am an evil man.

3)  Julie Newmar.  BATMAN (the TV Series) 1966

Now we're talking!

She was the first Catwoman actress, and certainly one of the best.  Sexy, slinky, supple, and other words that start with S.  No matter how well Eartha Kitt did the “purrr-fect” gag, Julie still did it first, and created the template of Catwoman as a live breathing character to fanboys and girls the world over.

As far as I can tell, Julie is the only Catwoman who had a movie written about her cult status amongst transvestites.

This is NOT part of becoming a fully grown man.

But Julie is ALL girl, and even has a patent on a special kind of bra, and a special kind of butt-shaping undergarment.  Both inventions are the lingerie of choice amongst transvestites, I understand.  Thanks Wong Fu.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  I learned everything about the birds and the bees by watching Julie give birth on Star Trek.

"No one may touch me but the Ma-Coy"

2)  Adrienne Barbeau:  BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES (1992)

Is it wrong of me to like this drawing a lot?

It’s hard to find fault with this version of the character, arguably the best interpretation of Ms. Kyle yet put to screen.  Her origin as a socialite turned animal rights activist turned jewel thief in a slinky cat-costume hit all the right buttons for this Selina-phile.  The costume is great, and the voice behind it is the completely  Catwoman-worthy Adrienne Barbeau.

My wife chose this photo of Ms. Barbeau, don't blame me.

Great in a cat-suit.  Great lurking in a swamp with the Swamp Thing.  Great sparring with Bea Arthur in Maude.  Just great.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  I briefly dated a woman who played the Siamese cat in a production of Cats, and who wore a costume identical to this one – on stage, mostly.  Also: I wrote and drew this version of Catwoman quite a few times, and won a few awards for it.

The cats on this cover are all my own cats, by the way. They even posed.

1)  Michelle Pfeiffer.   BATMAN RETURNS.  (1992)

There are no words...

It’s wrong of me.  I know. But this is the version in my head when someone says “Catwoman”. It’s also the image in my head when someone says “Leather body-suit” or “Is that your zipper?”.  It’s not just the costume, it’s not Michelle Pfeiffer,  it’s not because this is a well written version of Catwoman (though her scenes with Bruce are the most “on character” moments in any of the Tim Burton movies) and it’s not the whip.  But the whole combination of that actress, in that suit, with that whip, in that movie, at that time…it imprinted the Correct  Catwoman-ness into my DNA even though it makes me feel all private and tingly whenever I see the it.

Michelle out of the cat-suit, and STILL I see Catwoman.

PERSONAL CATWOMAN CONNECTION:  As it spent some time on display in the big conference room at the DC offices, I have actually touched Michelle Pfieffer’s Catwoman suit.  The costume was smaller than I thought it was.  Legends loom large.

There you have it Anne.  You’ve got some competition for the hearts and minds of the audience.  I generally like the newer Batman movies, so there’s a good chance you’ll pull it off, just so long as you don’t drink milk and lick yourself like Halle Berry, and you don’t try to do Eartha Kitt’s voice.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Special Postscript:  I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a photograph of a friend of mine, Meghan Campbell, who is Toronto’s (and possibly comic fandom’s) best Catwoman cosplayer.  Don’t just take my word for it…

Meghan, playing on the stairs.

Again, Ty the Guy OUT!

The Ten Greatest All-Nude Fight Scenes in Comics

The all-nude fight scene has been a staple of literature since Eve asked Adam to bite into the fruit of knowledge and Adam said, “Make me.”

This can't be legal. And it better not be in a museum somewhere.

And why not?  We like nudity, AND we like fighting.

Back in the really old days, when the Youtube was called “actual Roman gladiators”, naked fighting was literally the “bread” in “bread and circuses“.  The circus part involved lions, but that’s another story.  What matters is that a snarling knock-down, drag-out is better when the delicate goodies are in play, and never more so, then when super-powers are involved.

And so, to continue my scholarly series about the prurient world of comic book decadence (following the highly educational “LOIS LANE: BONDAGE QUEEN” and “Comic Book Easter Zombie Parade” posts), and bring to you…

THE TOP TEN NAKED SUPER-HERO FIGHTS IN COMICS.

But before the festival of naughty bits, three quick ground rules:

RULE #1:
No Adult Comics. No taking the piss out of WARRIOR NUN, DANGER GIRL, VAMPIRELLA, or

Russ Heath's forgotten masterpiece.

ANYTHING HOWARD CHAYKIN HAS WRITTEN as that’s low hanging fruit, and I don’t pick, grab, fondle or tug at so easy a target.    Sadly, it means no COWGIRLS AT WAR, but we’re sticking to mainstream super-heroes—and do I mean STICKING!

RULE #2:
Only one nudie shot per customer.  WOLVERINE, for example, can pop it out of his pants as often as he pops them out of his knuckles… if we don’t impose the limit, the whole list becomes about Logan’s dangly-bits.

RULE #3:
The appearance of nudity isn’t good enough.  The character must have actual genitalia.  Sorry Howard the Duck and Silver Surfer.

As sexy as this super-hot cover seems to be, I consider it cheating if there’s no possibility of balls.

And now, without further ado, or further use of the phrase “dangly-bits”…

#10
AVENGERS ILLUMINATI #1

As a millionaire playa, Tony Stark was always willing to slip out of the Armani suit for the hunnies, and as a drunken gutter dweller, he was willing to step out of the Iron Man suit and give it to his pal Rhodey.  The suit, I mean.   Clearly Tony is very willing to drop trou, and that’s why he’s so calm, cool and TEACHING SCHOOL in this nude-fight classic.  With nothing but his “little Iron Man” to help him, and a few well remembered “training sessions” with Steve Rogers, Tony Stark smoothly kicks butt while his own is dancing in the breeze.

This is why they call him "Shell-Head".

IN TONY’S FAVOR:  Skrulls are not human, so it’s like being naked in front of your cat.  The things I do naked in front of my cats would get me arrested if I was doing them in front of say, the neighbors, tied up in my shower–

#9
The Watchmen.  Issue 12

Flee, enemies of democracy! The American Superman can stay clothed for only SO LONG...

The Watchmen is the greatest super-hero comic book of all time so it has to be on all lists that include the words “greatest” and “super-hero”.  Lucky for us, the naked fight scene between Rorschach and Doc Manhattan in Issue 12 is a keeper!  And it follows memorable  naked quantum physics scenes and naked menage a doppelganger scenes that changed my dating ambitions forever.

The socio-political implications of Alan Moore’s narrative and the intricate mechanism of this novel have been discussed endlessly by greater critics than I, so I’ll just leave you with two thoughts:

1)  It’s bad enough being killed by a friend, but killed by one waving his little blue weenie at you is insulting.
2)   Rorschach said was naked without his mask on, so he’s joining Doctor Manhattan’s free spirit–dying with his nose and lips exposed.

No matter what else, this is a dick move. Oh, and I've ruined the ending of the novel for you. Which is a dick move on my part.

#8
HOVERBOY #91
Hoverboy vs. Doc Natural.

With all the tags that say "nude Super-hero" this cover is going to get a lot of web hits.

If ever there was a reason to avoid calling him “The Bucket Headed Super-Hero” this issue is it.  After being hit with “fiber melting herbs” by the hippie super-villain Doc Natural, Hoverboy is forced to fight crime in the nude.  He learns to avoid shame by reading the first part of Genesis over and over, and eventually smacking anyone in the face who looks at him “down there”.

#7
TARZAN VS. TUBLAT the GORILLA

If you’re into the twin aesthetics of decorative baroque, and boy’s pink bums, you can’t do better than Burne Hogarth’s TARZAN  graphic novel, published in 1972 by Watson-Guptill.

I can't explain this, and I won't even try.

Freed of the comics code, Tarzan is naked for the first hundred pages…and just so you’d know where Burne’s bread was buttered, we are shown nothing but Greystokes curiously un-tanned buttocks for those hundred pages– the Jungle Lord’s crown jewels were hidden in shadows, or behind vines or strategically placed gorillas the whole time.  But, oh those glistening backside orbs were in full display–page after page—bulbously leaping from tree to tree in a cascade of male glute flesh rarely seen outside a clergyman’s rectory.

There really is a lot of this, all through the book.

And when Tublat (Tarzan’s gorilla father) starts messing with Kala (Tarzan’s gorilla mother), we’re treated to the second bloodiest naked super-hero fight scene on the list.

Um...could you check out what's happening in panel one?

EXTRA NAKED POINTS:  Everyone in this scene is stripped to the gonzos, INCLUDING TARZAN’S MOM!  I dare you to fight someone while your mom is watching nude.

#6
LEGEND OF AQUAMAN SPECIAL

Bark like a sea lion, boy! I said BARK!

If you didn’t want to see an “in the buff” teen-Aquaman fighting a grown man in rubber pants, then why have you read this far?  Seriously.  Some self examination is in order.

Don't sass me, nude boy. I'll teach you who wears the rubber pants around here!

Okay, I get that Aquaman’s origin story was kinda like “Tarzan of the Fish”, and if his dolphin pals weren’t ashamed of their blow holes, why should he be?  But this scene  goes that extra special mile for its entertainment dollar.  It involves, rubber pants, choking, punching, animal noises and a young lad tied starkers and spread in a chair.  That’s at least three-fifty downtown, but the comic retailed for two dollars, quite a bang for your buck in 1989.  You always wondered why Aquaman has such a devoted following–  it’s not just because he can breathe underwater.

How did THIS scene end up in a DC comic?!?

#5
MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #77

Pants? I know I brought pants...

I wasn’t kidding about how often Logan goes sans pants. They even have a special term to alert the students at the X-Mansion when Wolverine is “sunnin’ the package”: It’s called “mid-afternoon”.

But of all the nudie Wolverine fights, this is the yardstick against which all others are measured.  And if you’re measuring with a yardstick, you’re already impressing me.

The zenith of Logan’s multi-issue

Graaah! Graah! Snarrlll! Graaahhh!

birthday suit wood romp comes when he fights the equally unclothed and competitively hirsute wolves in MCP: WEAPON X #77, and bathes in their mighty blood when it’s all done.  The most badass moment in comics is suitably bare assed and  has been referenced again and again.

Snarrll....grrrrr.....grrrrr....I swear to GOD I had pants....

#4
Ultimates #9

Big deal, you gotta take a PILL to be called "Giant Man".

Millar and Hitch’s Ultimates run was a leader in the naked fight scene genre, with an average of one naked fight per 3.7 issues.  The Cap/Naked Giant Man fight from #9 is my favorite, simply because it  involves a giant guy waggling the wand six stories above your head.

One of the most important aspects of a man to man fight is the ability to look your opponent in the eye and say belittling things to him.  But when you have to crane your neck just to glimpse your opponent’s eyes behind his BUICK-SIZED REPRODUCTIVE SAUSAGE, it’s a trifle intimidating!

And Cap hands Hank the beat down that he had coming all the same.  THAT’S why you salute the man with the shield.

Hank goes DOWN! Hank goes DOWN! Into the big, phallic tube-y things!

#3
Batman #357.

WTF? This is in a published comic? At least Bruce is saying "NO".

This can’t be a co-incidence.  There’s no way that the editor was  unaware that the first two words in this naked fight scene are “swish” and “Dick..?”–  WHICH WERE THE TITLES OF MY FIRST TWO HOMO-EROTIC HAIKU!!  Someone had to be spying on me.

And the second page of this memorable sequence begins with another unfortunately worded balloon that I’m not going to type up, in case I enjoy it more than I should.  Just read it yourself…out loud if the elderly are present.

This had to be a prank. This was never published...

And it all ends with a spread eagle boy wonder, and naked Bruce looking down on him, again saying “Dick…?”.  Don’t take my word for it.  Follow Bruce’s stare….Go check, I’ll wait.

It was as though the editorial team at DC had decided to give into the fan mail they’d been getting from “that anti-Wertham” crowd, and just let them have one issue to call their own.

I think the story had something to do with mind control, and Hugo Strange, and something like that.  Did anyone read the other eighteen pages in this issue when people were wearing clothes?  My copy won’t open.

#2
ULTIMATE HULK ANNUAL #1

Okay. He's naked, and unashamed. Got it?

This is special in so many ways.  First off, the Ultimate Hulk was a walking naked fight scene from the word go.  That was is raison d’etre, his meaning in life, his chewy center.  He doesn’t care if he defeats the Leader, or The Abomination…he just wants to meet a special someone and settle down, and the nudity was his version of Hulk Sized Foreplay.

This ANNUAL is nothing more than a big, long, extended, full length, and blood engorged naked fight scene that ends in a punch to the cojones that was visible from space.  And the subject

Ohh. Strike one against the Mighty Nards of the Hulk. The "Nulks".

matter of the fight?  Some chick named Zarda gets hired by Captain America to make the Hulk wear pants.  She attacks his Hulklings until he agrees, and then they go to a motel and snuggle like very bad bunnies who are not married to each other, and might not even be considering a formal engagement.   No wonder comics are considered literature nowadays.

And one more 'nad cruncher, in case you're missing the subtlety of the story.

#1
BATMAN CONFIDENTIAL #18

This is why we all evolved to have eyes.

When the end comes, and the world is crumbling around me due to nuclear devastation or social upheaval, this is the comic I take with me to the escape shelter.  Full Respect to Fabian Nicieza and Kevin Maguire for making this objet d’art for us to enjoy.

Okay. That's a nice drawing.

The story has something to do with Catwoman stealing something, and running into an all-nude fetish club to escape Batgirl chasing her…and Batgirl follows her in and stuff happens.  Good god, I’m heterosexual, how am I supposed to remember the plot?

You’ll notice how sparse this list has been for naked super-HEROINE fights…up until now.  Oh, sure, She-Hulk and Black Cat do sometimes get all jiggy with their bid’ness, but they don’t seem to be PUNCHING anyone when they do it.  And Danger Girl and Codename:  Knockout don’t count if that’s ALL they do.  But THIS…?   This is naked fighting, folks, not naked prancing.  You want naked prancing, visit your congressman.

Honestly, it just goes on like this for pages and pages...

There are other naked fight scenes in comics.  I seem to remember Magneto fighting for his life in the shower.  And let’s never forget Bruce Banner’s narrow escape from Jim Shooter’s Traveling Shower Rape Stereotype Duo from that Rampaging Hulk in the Eighties…Ah, those memories I can’t seem to purge.

If you’ve got a naked fight scene you’d like to see featured in this column, please drop us a line.   We’re always willing to look at naked people smacking at each other, whether they’re flying through the air or not.

That’s it for today.  A long one, but a good one.  (That’s what she said!)

I’ll see everyone back here tomorrow for some all new BUN TOONS!  A new installment of LAST ROUNDUP ON THE SINISTER SPACECRAFT OF FORBIDDEN LOVE, and MORE!

Batman Happy Meal Box Art Part 3

Responding to constant nagging from the wife (ignoring me wasn’t working), Ty scanned me the rest of the pages for the McDonald’s Happy Meal Box art he did years and years ago. (I’ve actually finally seen a photo of the boxes; hoping to post those soon.)

It’s fun to see some of the old art…especially stuff featuring Catwoman.  Ty used our cats for inspiration: if you spot a Siamese kitty, that was Batman (seriously.  And Ty will swear ’til he’s a very old man that it wasn’t because of Batman, but a cricket-playing friend whose nickname was that).  Near her should be a tiny white kitty, and that was Epiphany Proudheart a/k/a Piffy.

Keiren
