Everyone Involved Regrets It Bun Toons! YAY!

I already regret telling you about it...

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.

FINAL ART strip form….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….

Tony Harris Bun Toons! YAY

Fortunately, the bunny is sexy enough to cosplay without pants.

Eternally attractive comic book artist, Tony Harris, has FINALLY told the cosplayers of this world the rules of the game.  Please, ladies, don’t show up to conventions in sexy clothes unless you’re a) very sexy,  b) aware that you’re not sexy, but an expert on the character you’ve dressed up as, or c) a virgin man.

He gets to make these statements because he’s a handsome man with a VERY powerful social position.  He draws comic books.

But what if Tony Harris held a position with even MORE power?

Imagine the controversy if Tony Harris owned a dry cleaners, or sold door to door soap.

THEN, people might take him seriously.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Hallowe’en 2012

Kellam wanted to try something different and sculpted this skull.

Halloween has come and gone, and though the spirit of Sandy dampened a few trick or treaters, we still make the holiday merry around here or people answer to me.

We begin with the youngest…Katherine.

Katherine had planned her costume for months, including having her hair cut short and dyed blonde. She did a gender-swap cosplay and went to school, and trick-or-treating, as everyone’s favorite yester-cartoon “Callie and Hobbes.” I thought hers would be an easy costume for people to “get” but she reported that the boys at school all knew instantly who she was, but the girls were mystified.  Is Calvin no longer a thing?  Do we want to even live in that world?

Taylor considered repeating his popular Rorshach from last year, but eventually settled on Leon, from Resident Evil. My daughter-in-law Jessica has featured on my blog many times for her incredible decorated cakes, but she also makes the most amazing costumes. Over the years she’s made Jimmy Olson and Rexplode for Kellam to wear, and Taylor was thrilled to discover that his old Leon costume fit him perfectly.

Sean tends to be more of a last-minute costume guy. He used to be all about Spider-Man or knights so we would buy or make his costume, but these days, he puts bits and pieces together mere hours before he goes out. This year, inspired by his newfound Doctor Who fandom he decided on The Fourth Doctor. An oversized Dollar Store cowboy hat, a multicoloured scarf his mother had knit many many many years ago for Kellam, an argyle sweater of Dad’s and a new tie put together with Dad’s winter coat, and Sean was happy. (He had a white collared shirt but decided, in the pouring rain, no one was going to be looking that closely at his costume.) He and Keiren did drive around to a few stores trying to find something to approximate a sonic screwdriver but he eventually decided he didn’t need it, as he needed the extra hand free to both fight time-criminals and eat candy.

 I’m assured this is a costume.  Kellam was dressed as a character from Assassin’s Creed, having just come from The Comic Book Lounge’s Hallowe’en event.  I’m also assured he killed no one, but he’s also duty bound not to tell me if he HAD killed someone, so I’m skeptical.

The grown-ups stayed home with a distant cousin who had gone to Catholic school his whole life, and made him watch Rocky Horror Picture Show.  He’s been seen shopping for garters and mascara today, so it might have had an effect on the lad.

Happy Spook Day Everybody!

San Diego Comic Con Memories Bun Toons Yay!

What? Who are you? Where am I? Hello…?

I’m not at San Diego this weekend, even though the rest of the planet seems to be.  Instead, I’ve taken to my bed in Toronto, recovering from some fairly work-intensive weeks with a bout of nasty exhaustion.  (Sorry there wasn’t a BUN TOON yesterday, the flesh is weak.)

But the MIND never stops at Bun Toons Central.  So I’ve let you into the creaky memory storage unit today.  Remember, you cannot open any boxes, and you cannot touch any items.  Whoever has the most money in their pockets can surely own it.  Yuuuup!

I hope those that made it to the West Coast are having a good time.  You’re in my thoughts when I’m not sleeping the day away…because those sleepy thoughts are always about bowling in the nude.

TY THE GUY OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Comic Con moment:

Time to play ARMCHAIR KIRBY! Votes will be tabulated with the latest software and reported back in a timely manner.
