Deadpool for Beginners Bun Toon! YAY!

Lesson one:  Put on a bullet proof vest.

The big event is coming –

-and I do NOT mean the Superbowl, which I understand is some time this weekend.

I’m talking about Deadpool (the “regenerating degenerate”, the “merc with a mouth” and Marvel’s most popular non-clawed mutant) and his movie premiere.

To those of us in the funnybook biz, Wade Wilson is well known…but outside of the eight people who stayed awake for his last big screen appearance, Deadpool is an unknown, a mystery, a cipher wrapped in an enigma.

That’s why the Bun Toon is here:

I’ll see you guys on opening day.  Except for you kiddies…this one’s not for YOU.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I’ve done my little part to keep Deadpool from being TOO successful.  Here’s a page I drew from DEADPOOL #250 (death of Deadpool special) last year.

death of deadpool cover

this is the cover, if you can’t live without the issue.  It’s actually a really fun special!

Evil Bun Toons! Bwah hah hah!

There’s nothing quite so evil as a cartoon rabbit.

There goes my next three assignments from Marvel.  I live like a rebel.

Of course, the only place Donald Trump BELONGS is in the funny papers.

Like in this issue of Mad Magazine’s 20 Dumbest of 2015, featuring work your humble rabbit cartoonist!  Probably still on sale at lazier news stands that don’t turn over their stock very quickly!

LEGENDARY BUN TOONS! YAY!

A legend in my own lunch time.

As always, when new comic book media arrives, I’m here to help sort it all out.

The CW just launched a new series, spinning off from ARROW and FLASH, and I watched the pilot so you don’t have to…

I-Zombie is safe.  That’s about a zombie.  And Lucifer is coming, and he’s hardly “B-List” in the name-recognition game.  But I worry about these “Legends”.

Past is prologue.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I have it on good authority that Brother Power The Geek is joining the LEGENDS squad as soon as they can find anyone who remembers him.  Then come the SEA DEVILS.

How to Use Philosophy Bun Toons! YAY!

Saving you the cost of a college degree.

Hey there, Bunny People.  Hope 2016 is treating you well…it’s treating some of my favorite performers rather poorly…

how to use philosophy

Nothing’s more fun than defeating one of them high-fallutin’ brain-thinkers at their own game.  Where’s my prize money?  Where?

Ty the Guy OUT!

=========================================================================

Of course David Bowie was more than a recording artist and actor….

Naturally he was a comic book star as well.  How could he NOT be?

die hard cover

I think Alan Rickman is in the DIE HARD comic book, but I didn’t read it…

grizzly adams

I’m afraid that the closest I could come to a comic book image to tribute Dan “Grizzly Adams” Haggerty, who also passed away this week.

Since I haven’t talked to you for a couple of weeks, I thought I’d push the comics that came in since Christmas with my work on ’em or in ’em…run down to your local comic store and buy them out of this product…my children STILL need to eat, and philosophy books can only provide so much…

mad

The MAD came out a couple of weeks ago, just before Christmas, but it’s likely STILL on sale.    The Bunny got to contribute to the annual list of dumbest by drawing an article…I wasn’t dumb, myself.

jughead

My Jughead alt-cover came out LAST week.  My first contribution to the world of New Archie, and I couldn’t be happier…I hope they let me do more (hint, hint!)

evil dead cover

My Evil Dead 2: Cradle of the Damned cover came out THIS week, and they ARE letting me do more over there…I have a few more covers, and maybe a script or two from the fine folks at SGP.

Wide Awake Bun Toons! YAY!

It’s like electricity is shooting through my brain.

Almost a true story.

Emotionally true, anyway.

I cannot stress enough how little regard I have for the any of the previous attempts to recapture the magic of Star Wars.  Though I consider Empire a decent enough film, it’s hardly in the same league as the sublimely wonderful original picture.  Somehow, J. J. Abrams loved the franchise enough to give us a sequel you can bite into.  It’s flawed, it’s a little bit TOO much of an homage to the original, and there are some plot holes that the Millennium Falcon can fly through, but who cares?

Finally we have a Star Wars that’s FUN, exciting, FUNNY, clever, well-acted, and I am even willing to buy into the mythology of it all, this time around.   Shows you what a missed opportunity the last four or five films have been.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Many moons ago, when the trailer first came out, I sensed a tingling in the force…here’s the Bun Toon from that week.

bunny force awakens

Hee hee.

Not disappointed.

star wars pitches

About ten years ago, I did a graphic novel for Vertigo Comics called “BIGG TIME”.  It was a satire of the entertainment industry and the whole need for fame in the American psyche…and on page 71, a character showed up wearing a T-Shirt with a special message…

BIGG TIME PAGE

If you can’t read the shirt is says “I’m Still Waiting for Star Wars Episode Seven”.

Culture Shock Bun Toons! YAY!

angry logo yellow

You’d be shocked at how little culture I have…

rabbit transit websize

I don’t care.  I’m going to look at things anyway.  Might even listen for sounds.  But clearly eating and drinking are right out.

I can’t wait to meet all the comic fans in India and learn about their creators and comics when I get to the Indian Comic Convention…and that’s on top of learning about their culture and country in general.  This is my first time over the Equator and my first time East of Europe.  It’s like there’s an entire planet out there outside of Canada and Europe.  Who knew?

That means I won’t be here for the Bun Toon next week…it will be a re-run…a good one, but a re-run nevertheless.  See you back here in two weeks, with probably lots of stories to tell of the trip.

Ty the Guy OUT of the country.

Spider-Man_India_Vol_1_3

Of course, I already know a thing or two about the sub-continent…after all I DID read Spider-Man India when it came out a few years ago…

Of course, there are local Indian comics, and I’ve been assured these are some of the more popular ones:

tumblr_lshwu3LInL1qmyg0x

These are the “Fighting Toads”, a set of characters who are clearly NOT based on martial artist turtles or shredding rats in any way, because that would be a lawsuit, right? I’m going to look into this.

tumblr_lshx3ms5J61qmyg0x

Super Commando Dhruva is sort of the Batman of India (so I’m told), even though he looks a bit more like Nightwing. Anything Batman-like is my jam, so I’m hoping to get one or two issues of this book.

tumblr_lshx78abgM1qmyg0x

This is Nagraj…kind of the Superman of India. His super-powers are impressive, and highly snake related. This is probably the closest to an image of the character I can put up on the Bun Toon without freaking out my snake-phobic wife. Sorry hon.
