Busy Weekend at Stadium Comics in Brampton

So I can’t come to the Bun Toon right now.  I shall Bun Toon when I get back from Stadium Comics…(might even come up with my idea while I’m there).  I’ll be sketching, and signing copies of Marvel’s free comic book for today, one of my Ultimate Spidey Adventures.

But fear not, fellow Tooners of the Bun, I shall be here fresh and early tomorrow with your weekend Rabbit Funnies.

It’s Free Halloween Comic Book Day, I get to go give out free comics.  It’s like DOUBLE CHRISTMAS!!

For your bonus comic moment, here’s the Batman 66 inspired print I’m bringing with me today:

NEW COMICS DAY

Today at your Local Comics Store, the latest issue (#16) of Marvel Ultimate Spider-Man Adventures with a cover by me. I’m pretty pleased with how this cover turned out:

And online, you can get a copy of Batman 66 #4–I did the interior art for this issue, scripted by Jeff Parker. I actually did a happy dance when I first saw the colours for this, done by Wes Hartman. (Print version goes on sale in a month)

Race out to your Local Comics Store or your local computer and get your copy today!

Ty the Guy OUT!!

 

FREE Comic Books!!

Everyone knows about FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, but that was waaaaaaaay back in May. Too long to wait for the next one! In its infinite wisdom, Diamond Comic Distributors has created a Hallowe’en version of Free Comic Book Day intended for the kids:  HALLOWEEN COMICFEST.

There are lots of comics from many publishers all available for free, but there are two of particular interest to Ty Templeton fans:  both DC Comics and Marvel Comics books’ feature stories by Ty and Dan Slott.

sez DC Comics,

“…fans will be excited to learn that comic book stores nationwide will be distributing the all-ages Halloween ComicFest exclusive BATMAN/SCOOBY DOO! Flipbook for FREE! Reprinting classic BATMAN and SCOOBY-DOO tales, this collection comes to you from the creative teams of writers Dan Slott and Chris Duffy and artist Ty Templeton amongst various others.”

Marvel Comics is offering up a book with both Spidey and the Avengers (based on the animated shows). Sez them,

“One product in particular is Marvel’s Halloween ComicFest book, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN AND AVENGERS. This all-ages book translates all the action and excitement from the television shows “Ultimate Spider-Man” and “Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!” into a comic book that will not only entertain young kids but engage teenagers and adults as well. “

THIS SATURDAY, October 27, Ty will be at STADIUM COMICS in Brampton, Ontario (at Shoppers World mall, Highway 10 and Steeles Avenue). The event is HUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGEEEEEEE; they say they’ve booked over TWENTY comics creators.

Ty’s really looking forward to this–he’s heard so much about Stadium Comics but not had a chance to check out the store yet. And he’s looking forward to seeing YOU! He’ll be signing copies of the FREE COMIC BOOKS from Marvel and DC, signing other books you bring him, he’ll have prints for sale, and he’s bringing some blank Batman sketch covers…  He’ll be doing sketches as well. And–as always–he’ll be telling tales…

Stop by and get your free books, get ‘em signed…and you can ask Ty questions about his COMIC BOOK BOOTCAMP, and hear about the upcoming classes (which start in ten days…registration is almost closed for WRITING FOR COMICS PART TWO, still spaces in LAYOUT FOR COMICS, and INKING FOR COMICS).

(Next Wednesday, which is actually Hallowe’en, Ty will be at The Comic Book Lounge & Gallery…but we’ll tell you about that when it gets closer to the date.)

Too Busy to Even Think of a Title for This

It’s Monday morning and we’re starting one of the busiest weeks we’ll be having this year!

Monday September 10 (TODAY!!), Ty is appearing on CHCH TV’s Morning Live show. Starting at 9am, he’ll be on for the whole hour drawing away and answering questions (although not on camera the whole time!). Channel 11, I believe.

Later this afternoon, Ty and I will head downtown to The Comics Embassy which houses COMIC BOOK BOOTCAMP to set up the tables, put the white board up, and generally make sure that everything is good to go for…

Tuesday September 11, when Ty teaches the first class ever in his brand new space at 392 Spadina Avenue, in downtown Toronto–WRITING FOR COMICS (Part One). There is one spot left, if you want to email us for a last-minute registration (comicbookbootcamp AT gmail DOT com). Class starts at 7pm, and Ty is soooooo looking forward to this!!

Wednesday September 12, Ty will be teaching DRAWING THE HUMAN FIGURE FROM YOUR HEAD, 7-10pm. We have two spaces still open, if you’d like to register.

Thursday September 13, our youngest son turns 13! Sean has an awkward birthday as it’s just after the start of school each year, and the day before we leave for a weekend. But 13! He’s turning 13 on the 13th! He’s been counting down to this for months! We’ll have the family over for a birthday dinner and there will be cake!

My youngest son

Friday September 14, crack of dawn, me, Ty and two or three of our kids will pile into the car (might send one of the kids with their older brother and my daughter-in-law) and drive to Montreal where Ty will be appearing at the MONTREAL COMIC CON all weekend.

Our oldest son will be working (informally) at the show (my daughter-in-law and teenaged son will be there over the weekend, volunteering). And we’re looking forward to seeing our friends from HEROES OF THE NORTH again. They’ll be there all weekend, with different cast members of their webseries making appearances each day. (Ty wrote a 12 pge story for them recently–the artist, Daniel Wong, will be at the con all weekend as a member of the SPENT PENCILS STUDIO.)

Friday, the con runs 4-9pm. After we’ll be at a barbecue with other comics creators–Ty is looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting creators we haven’t met before.

Saturday September 15, Ty will be at the MONTREAL COMIC CON 10am-7pm. After the show will be THE JOE SHUSTER AWARDS, AT 7:30PM. I always love to go to the show and watch Canadian creators get some well-deserved love, but I have a vested interest this year–Ty has been nominated in the WEBCOMICS CREATOR category for BUN TOONS.

After, we’ll be off to the post-awards party to celebrate all the winners, and to get a chance to talk to everyone.

Sunday September 16 will be the last day of the MONTREAL COMIC CON,  10am-5pm. Last chance for sketches, signatures and for Ty to tell stories! Then, it’ll be back to our sister-in-law’s home for a chance to have a family dinner with her, our youngest kids and our nephew and nieces.

Monday September 17, we’ll all pile back in the car for an early-morning drive back to Toronto. (Probably with me driving–Ty will probably still be asleep).

And, through all of this–Ty is working on Marvel Ultimate Spider-Man Adventures! Pencilling and inking and plotting!
