More winners and losers of the year as we track the most and least popular posts of the last 12 months.
Our THIRD highest hit maker of the year came to us back in September, when I was in Montreal for a comic convention and didn’t have my scanner or my computer to get all photo-shoppy with. Undaunted, I drew the weekly Toon at teeny size on a single piece of typewriter paper at my Brother-in-Law’s house and scanned it with his fax machine. NOTHING stops the Bunny.
This strip was in reference to the then recent, and very exciting events of Avs.X — This was in those wild days before Spider-Man #700, when life was so simple.
As of four months later, Xavier is still dead, I think. But you never know, there’s probably a shadowy figure lurking around the Jean Grey school that might be him. I don’t read the X-Titles like I used to.
I got a lot of encouragement to do MORE Bun Toons in this very minimalist style, without colour, without lettering, without any drawing skill, and a few weeks later I had exactly that opportunity when I found myself in a hospital emergency room one Saturday morning, to pass a kidney stone. While waiting for the excruciating pain to ebb, I asked the nurse for paper and pencil to Bun Toon from my sick bed.
Even with that level of dedication, no one read this one. It had a classical pee-on-yourself pathos ending and everything! So it’s not the sloppy, badly lettered artwork you guys like, it’s the sloppy, badly lettered drawings of Wolverine. Duly noted.
See you next time for more high-flyin’ hilarity, and low-brow fail.
