Tons of Fun Re-Runs! YAY!

For the first time all year, the internet is not broadcasting live.

For the first time all year, the internet is not broadcasting live.

Hey and hi, fellow internet travellers.  I’m off at the Toronto ComiCon this fine Saturday Morning, and as is tradition, it’s the one or two times a year that I run a re-run Toon of Bun.  I cannot possibly draw you something this Saturday while I’m sitting in a convention centre without scanner or laptop, much as I would love to, and the rules are clear, BUN TOONING cannot be done ahead of time to have inventory.

So, this time around, I asked my beloved wife which of the many past Toons De Bun she thought I should go with, and her answer will surprise no one who knows her.

But wait!  There’s more!

one reader one voteAnd the answer to the what-did-my-wife-say riddle is:

“Anything with Elizabeth Bennet in it.”

These were the only two strips I had.  I’ll have to work Miss Bennet into more Bun Toons in the future.  I’d have picked re-runs with monkeys.

Ty the Guy Out!

Since I didn’t give you a new Bun Toon, I’m giving you TWO bonus moments.  That’s the sort of generous, kick-Ayn-Rand-in-the-teeth sort of fellow I am.

First, because I’m off at a convention doing draw-erings for the fans, I thought I’d share a couple of recent comics sketch covers I’ve done to show you what I’m probably doing at the moment you read this.

That FF cover above was harder to do that I thought it was going to be, because the area for the artwork was completely a different shape.  No fun swiping if I have to make decisions!

(To get your own sketches or sketchcover, find me at Toronto ComiCon at P18. At noon today, I’ll be doing a workshop, HOW TO WRITE A GRAPHIC NOVEL IN ONE HOUR. The rest of the time I’ll be signing books, doing sketches, selling pages and telling stories.)


on the ropesI just got finished reading this new graphic novel ON THE ROPES, and I’m going to spend a few words raving about it.

It’s not a re-run, like the Bun Toons this week, but a sequel to a lovely series from the 90s called KINGS IN DISGUISE.  But this is the rarest of sequels that is so, so much better than the original, that it’s in a different league.

This is, by far, the best graphic novel I’ve read in a while, perhaps years.  I cannot recommend it enough, especially if you love stories about one-legged circus children who join the communist party during the depression.  That’s my second favorite genre, and Vance and Burr do an insanely good job of telling this literate, thoughtful, tense, playful and brilliant story.

See you on the convention floor, folks!

    Loved the original series, and it was criminally overlooked.

  2. I find it difficult to write comments about your cover sketches without sounding like a gushing idiot. So…I guess I’ll try to sound cool and just say “oh that’s nice” (even though I smiled at the return of The Mullet).

  3. That`s a great FF-cover.
    Your wife chose two funny ones.
