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…

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…

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…

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!

Gotham City Bun Toons! YAY!

Right after this cheerful logo, things get dark and gritty...

Right after this cheerful logo, things get dark and gritty…

I’ve been watching the new GOTHAM television series since the first episode, and I’m a confirmed fan.  I’m hard to please with Batman filmed stuff, so if I’m on board, they’re doing something right.

There are those who are missing the point of the series, though….and after a half dozen episodes, I feel I’m enough of an expert that I can explain to one and all…

Haters gonna hate.

The rest of us are having a ball.

TY THE GUY OUT!

Hey!  The fine folks at Marvel released my page from all-new, all-exciting Big Marvel Event SPIDER-VERSE a little early, so I can show it off here!  I got to draw one of the most ICONIC versions of Spidey in history!  click on the image to make it larger!

That’s right!  I got to KILL OFF THE TWINKIE-VERSE Spider-Man!  Talk about notching one in the career belt.

Best Bun Toon Ever? Yay!

It only comes but once a year!

It only comes but once a year!

Sorry this was a bit late, my computer has been bitten by something, and I have to upload on the wife’s machine.  Sheesh!

This week included Bat-Day, the 75th Birthday of the guy who pays my mortgage.  So in celebration, I give you…

BEST BATMAN EVER

There.  Now you don’t have to read Batman comics any more, I’ve topped them all.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Batman251

In case anyone was wondering, THIS is the best Batman comic ever…and if you ask at a convention, I can prove it.

I’m leaning ethnic, but I shouldn’t rule out handicapped or something in the GLBTQ territories…there’s big money in those emerging identities.

I know this will be considered a risky move for the future of this beloved web-toon–to carry on without the only continuing character in the strip….but I can’t exactly do alt-cover second printings with a foil wrap, can I?  I have to get in on the sweet, sweet green any way I can.

Don’t make me actually earn it.

Let us now have a moment of silence, for the little white rabbit, who has delighted us all for so long–Struck down in the prime of life, to fulfill his duties to the corporation.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Apparently, I’m not the first person to think of this…

I'm fairly certain it follows the same plot...hit by a bus, Spider-man arrives to comfort the dying, etc.

Real Quick Bun Toons! YAY!

I'm late...I'm late...for a very deadline date...

I’m late…I’m late…for a very important date…

Whoops!  My new Batman series is on the stands, which means I haven’t got time to mess around!  I owe the office another issue yesterday.

But there’s always a speedy Bun Toon.

In other news…

It’s been 75 years since Mr. Finger and Mr. Kane first created the Bat-Man in Detective Comics #27.  To celebrate that event, DC Comics is releasing a special commemorative edition with a reprint of that first story and a new story by some current creators…

qq6xqrscc29pqhiu6przThat in itself, is not that big a deal.  They do that every couple of years with their flagship characters…

But this time, something NEW happened.

Bill Finger got a cover credit for writing that story.  That’s never happened before.

Score one for Bill.

Thanks DC.

Is that the hint of a smile, Bill?

…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.

A link to the Bun Toon library of hundreds of other stories, most of which will not mention David Goyer or masturbation

To The Batcave!!

Last Saturday, The Comic Book Lounge & Gallery hosted a release party for the first hardcover collection of Batman ’66 comics. There were cosplayers, friends and fans. Tyrone Biljian, Director of The Joe Shuster Awards, brought his collection of Batman ’66 memorabilia:
