Bun Toons Teaches Important Lessons! YAY!

A moment of sunshine and flowers first

Ah, what a delightful week it’s been.

People are asking questions….what can I do?  Where can I help?  What is the solution?

Well, I’m here to instruct.

how to punch a nazi

I’m encouraged by the anti-Nazi turnout in Boston today.  I’m encouraged the PayPal and Facebook and many other digital platforms have discovered a “No-Nazis” rule lately.  I’m encouraged that America is woke to racism now that a white woman is dead.

But we still have a few more Nazis to punch before they get the message.  I want those hate filled vermin to feel fear to leave their homes with “88” tattoos, or white power symbols.

No slope.  No slippery.

Punch a Nazi today.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Punching a Nazi is good exercise for the body and soul.

Think of the CHILDREN!!

You think it’s easy living in this modern world?

It’s a struggle.  Each and every day.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I should point out, young Spock has been around the Trek universe almost since the beginning.

spock_young-tas-03

He first appeared in the animated episode YESTERYEAR, a time travelling Spock-Meets-Himself-as-a-Child story.  It’s actually, a pretty good Trek episode, but it gets death-duel arguments from Trekkies about it’s level of canonical acceptance.

Of course, there’s Genesis Planet Spock, grown from his own dead cells to house his own katra on Star Trek’s Eden World.

A couple of scenes later, we are treated to “Pon-Farr” Teen-Spock and his very special after school episode with Lt. Saavik.

“This won’t be creepy, because you’re not the real Saavik anyway.”

And of course, we must include NuTrek’s baby Spock–from the first/eleventh movie.

Okay, I shouldn’t have gotten so excited.

There’s already a LEGION of baby Spocks.  It’s like Spider-Verse at this point.

The Bun Toon Explains ALL! YAY!

Where would you be without my insights?

Recently, I’ve overheard a few people getting into a spirited philosophical discussion about the purpose of fiction and art in the world.

So, let me spell it out for ya.

And with that, I have rescued the internet from Supergirl, Spider-Gwen, Ghostbusters III, and the lady Thor.  I can’t control Doctor Who, that’s happening in England.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I have been an sf and pop culture fan for more than fifty years, and I’ve seen me all the Star Treks, the Star Wars-es, the Aliens and the Planets of the Apes.  But Doctor Who has ALWAYS been a comic book to me.  It started here:

gibbons who 1

By Dave Gibbons, David Lloyd, Steve Dillon and ALL the great British comic book artists of the 80s, I was hooked on this comic from the start.

But I swear to god, I never got into the show.  My wife and kids love it, all my friends love it, my colleagues and editors love it.  Someday, I’m going to get around to watching it.

But only if they finally cast a Lady Doctor Who, so I’m not holding my breath.

Home Again Bun Toons!

russian-nesting-bunnies

I haven’t been home for a couple of weeks, gallivanting about the globe — like the superstar  that I am — to Denver and Montreal for comic conventions.  I wasn’t home to Bun Toon, and I missed a couple.  I abjectly beg you to accept my apologies.

Since I was last a rabbit, I’ve had an adult son move out of my house, a dog move into my house, my country had a major birthday, this webcomic got nominated for a Shuster award, and I heard something about a Russian political scandal somewhere.

So much important stuff to talk about.

So I went with this.

My wife and I saw this Waldo guy a couple of times during the convention weekend.  He was always muttering angrily to himself, and appeared lost the entire time.

THAT’S how you do it, people.  Think BELOW the surface to make your cosplay great.

Ty the Guy OUT!

At the same convention in Denver that weekend, I saw THE cosplay of the month.

I assume the little guy had an Ant Man action figure, and I assume the action figure was holding a microscopic version himself…

Oh, Alt Bunnies.  Will I ever get tired of marketing you?

According to my calendar, it’s way past Spring.

Thank gosh this sort of exploitative, hollow, cynical exercise only exists in satire.

Ty the Guy

Obviously I have to apologise for ever creating Ortiz, the pool boy.  Here he is, in his THIRD appearance, before I knew ethnic stereotyping was grossly offensive.  This appeared during the brief period that the bunny had died and was replaced by a minor support character to build readership.

Go West, Young Bunny.

Ty the Guy OUT.

It goes without saying how much Adam West impacted my life.  I was EXACTLY the right age to become a lifelong fan when Batman come into our living room in 1966.  I remember the Adam West style Batman and Robin costumes my mother sewed for my brother and me when the show was still on the air.  I remember how excited I was to grow out of the Robin costume and finally fit into the Batman suit so I could be the Caped Crusader for Halloween in 1970.  It’s no coincidence that the lion’s share of my work for DC Comics takes place in Gotham City, from the animated Batman series, to the recent Batman 66 series, starring Adam West himself, it’s always my happiest place to be with Batman.

Thanks for the recent animated movies, and “Back to the Batcave” and Family Guy.  Thanks for the years of unbridled joy.

Thanks.

I sketch Adam West style Batman covers at conventions ALL the time.  It’s likely the most common request I get.  Here’s a few of them from the last year or so… I’m sure there will be many more–

This is, maybe, my favourite portrait I ever did of Adam West’s Batman.  It’s hard to see in this image, but this drawing is on the back of a playing card, a fan brought to the table, and is only about three inches tall.

I am Bunny.  Hear me ROAR.

As promised last week…I’m back with more to say about something.

It’s really not fair.

Don’t think we didn’t notice Harley was the only good thing in Suicide Squad, and Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman was the only good thing in The Dark Knight Winds Down.

This is a conspiracy, to push male dominated super-hero movies aside in favour of these female friendly movies Hollywood makes every thirty years.

I, for one, am not putting up with it.

After two or three more trips to the theatre to see Wonder Woman a few more times, I’m boycotting the film until it comes out on Blue Ray.

Who’s with me?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Wonder Woman is one of my favourite characters to draw on sketch covers for conventions…here’s a couple of recent ones that turned out somewhat un-awful.

And while I’m comparing Harley, Catwoman, and Constantine’s movies to Wonder Woman’s…
