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.

Guardians of the Bun Toons! YAY!

Jumping for Joy in Zero Gravity

Jumping for Joy in Zero Gravity

The hype has been unrelenting.  There is no escape.  By now, everyone on Earth has seen at least a commercial or two…

But is it worth it?

GUARDIANS WEBSIZE

I could go into details, and tell you bits and pieces that worked and didn’t work.  But none of that really matters.  The movie kicks major ass.

I may even see it again….despite having all the issues of the original run of the Guardians and being one of those old fans who gets cranky when they get the costumes wrong…

Ty the Guy OUT!

MARVEL SUPER HEROES 18Yes, they really looked like this in their first issue.  And they WEREN’T a big hit, you say?!?

You could be Heroes…

…just with one eBay purchase!

It’s–time to support Hero Initiative in their latest round of auctions. As always, the Hero Initiative is a wonderful project all comic fans and creators should support. When comics creators find themselves in dire straits through health issues or other problems, Hero Initiative is there to figure out a way to  best help the creator. In order to do so though, Hero Initiative needs money. To this end they run many auctions throughout the year and ask comics creators to contribute their artwork.

The latest round of auctions is for Hero Initiative X-Men 100 Project. The auctions have been going on for a while, but this time–my cover is on the list! I have so thoughtfully decided to give you the moment you should have had in the latest X-Men movie but did not get–Future Beast and Past Beast beasting all over each other!

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.

SPIDERMAN LINK

Why was I dressed like a Spider-Bunny last week?  There’s only one way to find out, true believers.
