Sunday Funnies Bun Toons! YAY!

I think it’s Super-bowl Sunday….?

So let’s get this out of the way:

football

Okay.  Awareness of the big game has been acknowledged.  Go Fightin’ Yanks, or Walruses, or whatever mascots are involved.


While the rest of the culture is focused on the sport-ball, they might be missing this huge announcement:

I mean, who isn’t enjoying all these DC “location” shows about places WITHOUT their iconic citizens?  After F.S.0.T.F.0.S. debuts, I’m waiting for “Light Breakfast:  The story of a B&B in a lighthouse, run by Aquaman’s father before he meets his mom.”

Or BATCAVE: 1812.  A cavern’s place in a forgotten war.

Eurgh.

Ty the Guy OUT!

There have long been comic books that played this game, by the way…

5809240-wok1+#3+final

To be fair, Superman was on the cover, and in a framing sequence in this one.

He was just on the cover of this one–nowhere to be found inside.

Supes didn’t even make the cover of this series, which followed the stories of Luthor and Perry White as younger men.  The new WB series is supposedly about Lois Lane and Luthor solving mysteries together….so SORT OF like this comic, only not really.

The original “Gotham” comic book….without the homicidal, overacting Penguin.

Heck….they even DID a Fortress of Solitude comic book in the 80s.

KRYPTON:  Coming soon to SyFy Channel this month.

No Kal-el.  No Jor-el.  No Lara.  Probably no Beppo.

  1. Why anyone would license Krypton without, at the very least, Jor-El and Zod and Brainiac, I will never understand. Well, okay, I do. But this sort of thing sure feels like bait and switch advertising.

    I’m still watching Gotham because I like some of the supporting cast. They started to develop young Batman, which could’ve been interesting, but seem to have decided against it now.

  2. They actually did that Batcave story- in one of the holiday specials, if I remember correctly.

  3. THANK YOU. I really couldnt agree more. Who gives a flying fluff about these places before the SUPERHEROES turn up?! Secret origins issue 46 is the sole exception to this rule. (Heh, Now I come to think of it, Im sure you did one of the stories in that issue.)

  4. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that my first thought on seeing Ty’s cartoon was: “What is the Mole Man doing in the Arctic?”

  6. ……Has anyone noticed that the first two covers you’ve shown here are…. look like…. they….. symbolize….. let’s just say Freud sometimes was right.
