Deadline Doom Bun Toons! BOO! @#(*&!

xmas logo

‘Tis the season to placate editors.

The deadline is not just looming, it’s zooming past, and I don’t have five spare minutes to sleep or eat without drawing, so I certainly can’t draw something else….The Bun Toon must re-run this week…I’m out of choices.

Here’s two of LAST YEAR’S holiday themed Bun Toons to satisfy your ravenous appetite for rabbit based cartoon stories.

See you next week, when HOPEFULLY I’m a little caught up.

In theory, that Bun Toon above works just as well with Mueller as with Santa.

And now, this:

Merry non-denominational holiday season to you and yours.

Moo! Bark! Howl! Bun Toons! YAY!

Four legs good.  Two legs bad.  Screw the penguins.

It may be the information age, but there are so many mysteries yet unsolved….

ANIMAL QUESTIONS websize

Someday we’ll find out of the critters have souls.

After we’re done eating them, I mean.

This is the oldest of my many, many Walt Kelly ANIMAL COMICS I’ve picked up over the years.

You can see proto-Albert and proto-Churchie in the drawing.  Pogo, one assumes, is off sleeping somewhere before his debut.

I’m still crazed for Kelly and Pogo, but haven’t picked up any new issues for a while, as they’re no longer dirt cheap “kiddie comics” that no one wants, like they were when I was young.  Apparently Golden-Age “animals” are popular now.

By the way, Flounder, like all flatfish, have what is called the “wandering eye mutation”, one of the more controversial elements of the evolution/intelligent design debate.  Once a joke gets explained, it’s no longer funny, so I’m explaining it here, long after it wasn’t funny to begin with.

 

Bun Toons goes to the Birds! YAY!

I’m thankful that rabbits are so easy to draw.

’nuff said.

little lulu

As someone who’s always been a colleague of Lulu (if not a dues-paying friend), it’s nice to see her bring a gun to a hatchet fight.  That’s the spirit.

Some friends of Lulu brought a bomb.

Uncomfortable for Everyone Bun Toons.

I’ve always heard these were “rumours”, but I know of other creators who were with me when this stuff happened in front of us.  It wasn’t a secret to anyone we knew.  But still, they’re “rumours”.

In a month where Louie CK, President G H W Bush, Kevin Spacey, and so many others are being outed as sexual miscreants, let’s hope the dam is finally broken.  This stuff happens ALL the time, with lovable, respectable men we don’t want to believe are capable of such creepy activities.  I’m still reeling from Bill Cosby.

Was Julius Schwartz a predator or a lovable (but dirty) old man?  I don’t know.  I didn’t really know him.

But he genuinely pulled this “whoops, did I run my hands over your nipple?” trick in front of me.  More than once.

When women tell you it’s happening, believe them.

When men know it’s happening.  Say something.

Otherwise it’s everywhere.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Schwartz appeared as himself in a couple of cameos in DC Comics and ended up an official fictional character in the DCU.  He met Superman a few times, helped rescue a dimension-lost Flash, and was uniquely chosen to survive the destruction of “Earth Prime” during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, arriving on the final Earth 1 at the conclusion of it all.    Oh, and he helped create the DCU in the first place.  So there’s that.

Frankly Speaking, Bun Toons! YAY!

Reminding  you of a time when newspapers still existed…The SUNDY FUNNIES!

You guys have no idea how much I enjoyed enjoying DK III.  That was part of the experience to me – the growing sense that I wasn’t hate-reading it.

In fact, it was darned, rootin-tootin’ GOOD.

But retroactively, the whole thing gets jingly-bingly in my memory now.

Eurgh.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Not my first time Bun Tooning Frank Miller in this position.

A few years ago:  My idea of the next “big thing” in publishing.  If only they’d listened to me.

BOO Toons! YAY!

Y’know- without the bunny ears, cartoon ghosts look a bit like sperm.

I’m a world traveller, and as a result, I’ve learned things NO ONE else knows.

Swedish Halloween

It must be true.  It’s on the internet.

Ty the Guy OUT!

The BONUS Bun Toons for today include a couple of my favourite Halloween Memories:

one-fine-halloween-websize

That story is absolutely true.  This was a long time ago, before Gal Godot was a household word and movies had yet to discover Stan Lee.  Yes, there WAS such a time.

DEATH AND BATMAN

As you can see, my family opts for traditional Swedish costumes during the holiday.

MORE BONUS MORE:  SOME OF MY FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN COVERS:

The golden age of everything is twelve.  This comic came out around the time I was twelve, so it’s probably my fave Halloween cover.

This one came out when I was in my late forties.

Unsolicited Advice Bun Toons! YAY!

new sunday logo

Hey.  You.  You’re living your life wrong, trust me.

Okay–the world can be an awful place.

The American President is a loon, there’s danger around every corner, and Gord Downie passed away this week, sending all of Canada into a collective tailspin.

But I have the solution.

half and half

Ever since I was a kid, I always figured– “…so long as you’ve got a glass, you’ve got a seat at the table…who cares how much you have left?  The glass is less than full because you drank some already–go drink the rest while you’re still here.”

Once the glass is gone, then you can complain.

Until then…

Whee.

Ty the Guy OUT!

half spidey

Some see my copy of Amazing Spider-Man #14 as torn in half.

I see TWO copies of Amazing Spider-Man #14 that are both half-there. I’m thinking of doing this to ALL my comics…
