Christmas Season Bun Toons! YAY!

Hurry up with the kissing, I ain't waiting all day.

This is a Christmas story my father told me when I was young.

You can see where I get my spirit of the holiday from…

Here are a couple of the Christmas Covers I’ve done over the years…

Because it's the Phantom Stranger, it's possible those decorations are the living souls of the Justice League.  AAAAAHHHH!!

My cover for the DC Christmas anthology from a couple of years ago.  This is the unpublished version of the cover…points for anyone who has the published version, who can tell the difference!

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…

websize constantine

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…

batfish

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…

cold superboy

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!

So Sorry To Disappoint Bun Toons! Woah!

 

bun toons alt 2014

 

I’m in the middle of the most crazy deadline pressures of my adult life this last week as I wrap up Batman-Green Hornet and gear up for a quick, but fun visit with Spider-Man.   I’m so, so, so close to the bone with the deadlines that any waking moment not devoted to drawing Adam West and the gang is immoral and cruel to my editor (and colourist and letterer), so I’m afraid I have to run some RE-RUN TOONS this weekend.  (Only the second time I’ve done this in over four years of Bun Tooning! I’m NOT a failure.  I’m NOT!)

Since it’s Batman (and eventually Spider-Man) that are knocking my calendar days around, I figure it’s only fair to re-run some Bun Toons that feature ‘em.

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.

Ty the Guy OUT!

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

Tomorrow…The Joe Shuster Awards!

joe_schuster_awards

Tomorrow will be the 10th year that The Joe Shuster Awards will be giving out awards to deserving Canadian comics creators. The ceremony will take place in the Back Space, the event space that shares an address with The Comic Book Lounge & Gallery.

This year, Ty is again nominated for Web Comic Creator. Fingers crossed! (Although everyone on the list is so amazing…and we’re both kinda pulling for Attila Adjornay who has been nominated for his beautiful Metaphysical Neuroma). But…win or lose, Ty will be inducted into The Canadian Comic Book Creators Hall of Fame (along with Cy Bell and Edmond Good).

Did this image up a couple years ago so it's missing a few more credits...Batman '66 #2 and #6, Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet and...more. Many more.

The event starts at 8pm (doors open at 7pm); gathering afterwards to give people a chance to talk and look at some of the artwork from past Shusters. Check the website for information on all the nominees, and bios of the Hall of Fame inductees.

Brave, Fearless, and Courageous Bun Toons! YAY!

You feel like, Rabbit?  Go ahead and make my day.

You feel lucky, Rabbit? Go ahead and make my day.

There’s little you need to know that isn’t in the comic this week…except you should understand that EVERY word in this is verbatim true.

today is my youngest son’s fifteenth birthday, so your BONUS moments involve the lad.  He was ten when I wrote this:

fear-the-future-small

this was one of the FIRST Bun Toons I did, back when the internet was in black and white.

It’s hard to tell, but Sean is the one in the lavender shirt.  He was thirteen when I wrote this one.  Happy Birthday Boy!

Violent Conflict Bun Toons! YAY!

Solid wall to wall action here, folks.  Strap yourself in.

Solid wall to wall action here, folks. Strap yourself in.

Last weekend, I was at FanExpo Canada, a junior San Diego Comicon for us bacon eating hockey players.  (It’s actually pretty huge nowadays, second only to Comicon in size for the year!)

Naturally, I got asked the inevitable question I’m always asked, seeing as I’m a child of the hippie era, and professionally associated with both of the parties involved.  “Who would win …?”

KIRK VS BATMAN

 

Now, if this had been Chris Pine and Ben Affleck, the winner would have been Gamorra from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Ty the Guy OUT!

 

Of course, the REAL Captain Kirk once met the REAL Batgirl pretending to be a green slave girl.

Or did I dream this?

Holy Body Paint, Captain!

and there have been a few attempts over the years to get Captain Kirk into the DC Universe…

Oh my god, this is real.

Oh my god, this is real.

But we’re still waiting on the OFFICIAL Gotham City/Federation crossover that the fans deserve.

If we could work the Beatles and James Bond in there, we might have something.
