Yer Not A Ten, Yer An Eight Bun Toons! YAY!

In these troubled times, it's important to have priorities...

It’s important to have priorities…

famous bathroom encounters websize

Honestly, it’s like three different people who have all had their own television series that I’ve been in a shower with.  You’ll have to offer money to find out their names, though…

Ty the Guy OUT!

NOTE:  My brother Brad claims the memory of sharing a urinal with Colonel Sanders and swears I was not in the room at the time.  The controversy will haunt us until our dying days…

————————————————————————————————–

This might be the worst thing that’s ever happened in a bathroom in a comic book…From RAMPAGING HULK #7…

hulk bathroom 2

…and the following might be the best thing to happen in a bathroom…

hulk toilet paper

I’ve never read this original story, but I cannot imagine it was given good reviews…not with the way people treated the issue!

Of course, what would a toilet based Bun Toon be without a visit from…

captain underpants

Dav Pilkey’s underdressed hero is ALWAYS welcome around here.

….and finally….here’s your LAST Urinal Based Bonus Moment:

Ttechnically, the Red Skull is FICTIONAL, not FAMOUS, and that’s why he didn’t make the list.

Teeny Tiny Bun Toons! YAY!

It's not the size of the Bun Toon that matters...

It’s not the size of the Bun Toon that matters…

Again, Marvel opens up a movie with a character the general public knows next to nothing about.

Again, the humble Bunny is here to help the novice sort it all out…

ant man four panels

I’m actually DYING to see this one.  I have a fondness for ANT-MAN that’s almost unnatural…

Ty the Guy OUT!

———————————————————————————————–

During the period of time I was writing an Avengers animated comic called “Avengers United They Stand”, Hank Pym/Ant-Man was the only original Avenger on the team every month…  So I featured him as a heroic, smart, funny, charming and all-around cool guy, leading the squad…

I drew the covers too, this is one of mine.

Of course, the series was cancelled after eight issues.

Sigh.

No one loves the comic book Hank Pym.

Every Bunny But Me Bun Toons! YAY!

It's like a GHOST TOWN around here...

It’s like a GHOST TOWN around here…

I was at a fairly large comic convention last week in Montreal, where I had a great time, and watched poor Arthur Suydam get molested by the internet for something he didn’t actually do.   (Ah, mob mentalities, where we would we be without you?)

But this weekend, I’m NOT at the big convention…and all of you ARE.

stay home comicon rev

Have a happy Comicon, San Diego Peeples.  Kiss Batman for me.  I’ll be here in line for Ant-Man and all the Happy Meal toys when you get back.

Ty the Guy OUT!

————————————————————————————————–

Your Bonus Bits are some Convention Stories from Bun Toons Past.  Who says this isn’t the Rabbit Age of Comics?

Seriously.

Who says?  I need names.

the ego goes kablooey websize

And that’s the REAL reason why it’s best not to go out in public.  The potential for humiliation is always looming.  ALWAYS.

Scolding Polemic Bun Toons! YAY!

Sometimes, I feel more like a good scolding than a good laugh.

Sometimes, I feel more like a good scolding than a good laugh.

If you don’t know what this is about, go to a news site that doesn’t have the word “Fox” on it.

fun with flags websize revised

It astounds me that there’s something called a “controversy” about removing the reprehensible symbol from the South Carolina statehouse in the wake of a terrorist shooting of an historical black church in Charleston.

Astounding.

Because some racist pigs PRETEND they don’t know exactly what that shitstain of a flag actually means.

But I’m through with being polite about it.  If you wear that odious symbol around me, I’m going to treat you like the human garbage I have no choice but to assume you are.  I will no longer witness this inhuman symbol without comment.

print and burn your own!

Ty the Guy OUT!

Lots of comics have used the confederate battle standard…

I'm not sure how ironically this is being used.  When I see the dark skinned snake guy, I'm not so sure....

I assure you, the provocative image and identity of the dark skinned villainous character, is actually key part of this satirical series.  All is not as it seems on the cover…(See our comments section below!)

DC certainly hasn’t shied away from it…

When I was a kid, I used to buy HAUNTED TANK for the fantastic artwork by Russ Heath.  As I got older, the images started to be harder to swallow.  DC eventually dealt with this....to their credit.

And my favourite Western hero, Jonah Hex, actually served in the Confederate Army!

Until he deserted in disgust, feeling no man should be a slave.  It put a price on his head, and allowed me to love the character....

Million Dollar Idea Bun Toons! YAY!

I'll sit by the phone awaiting your offers.

I’ll sit by the phone awaiting your offers.

When suddenly it dawned on me…the perfect superhero.  A couple of issues in the can and I’ll be taking this to Hollywood.  Nobody steal this idea, kay?

sisyphus man in colour websize

I figure around the tenth issue, I’ll reveal the big surprise that Sisyphus Man is actually his own twin brother, or perhaps he’s a time traveller, or maybe he’s an alien, I don’t know–I’ll think of something to spice it up.  He’ll still be fighting Dr. Chaos, though.

Ty the Guy OUT!

———————————————————————————————-

Our unexpected Bonus Moment comes from Canadian comic book artist Rick Overwater, who gets to the heart of Sisyphus Man without the layers of clever metaphor…

rick overwaters futility

Of course, he might be referring to the premise of being a Canadian comic book artist in the first place.

The REAL Return of Bun Toons! YAY! YAY! YAY!

I'm afraid I have to charge you people a little more for these now, you'll all be getting my bill.

Like MacArthur, I have returned.

I’ve returned to creating new issues of Batman ’66.  Returned to teaching….

and to whatever motivates me to draw the rabbit.

zombie advantages websize

Apparently tomato juice and lemonade is good for chasing that musty smell out of my flesh.  It’s hard for me to judge, I have no nose.

Ty the Guy OUT!

—————————————————————————————————

This is hardly the first time I’ve drawn Zombie Rabbits, by the way.  Here’s a page from an issue of Mad Magazine I did a couple of years ago, poking fun at DC’s habit of torturing all their heroes, and wondering when they were going to start on the kid’s characters…

zombie bugs

In this case, Bugs is LITERALLY a stinker.

And there’s this:  I’ve already done two store appearances since the heart attack, and when asked to draw my Bunny in a fan’s sketchbook, here’s what I did…

zombie rabbit con sketch

Back to work, now net-peeples.

Speaking of…since the Bootcamp classes are starting up again, spread the word for me, okay?  We’re running an anatomy class and an inking class starting in a couple of weeks, and would love to see some of you there.

THE RETURN OF BUN TOONS! YAY!

Ow.  Ow.  Ow.

Ow. Ow. Ow.

The buzz around the biz these last few weeks has been about the new DAREDEVIL show on Netflix.  Considering the failure of the Ben Affleck movie (and the Electra movie) it’s possible the newly minted Daredevil fan needs a little help catching up to what’s going on with the character…so to help out, I present…

daredevil hearts

I’m not kidding about dying three times, by the way….I’ve now checked out more times that Professor X during a summer crossover, and I don’t seem to have any insight into the experience.  Didn’t meet John Lennon or my dad when that happened, but I did learn that there ARE atheists in foxholes after all, because no matter how dire or iffy things got, I never thought about the hereafter or considered asking for magical help, so there’s that.

I gots to thank all the fine folks at Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Hospital for bringing me back every time I left the planet, and a special shout out to Roaming, my night nurse, who kept me sane when there was little option but to give up.

My wife updated the internet about what was going on, so folks knew what was happening, but she kept how bad it was a secret so my kids didn’t know how the real details of it all until I was out of danger.   It seems the staff didn’t expect me to survive more than a day or two, and I ended up earning the nickname “Miracle Man” from some of the doctors there when I woke up from the medially induced coma a little earlier than they saw coming.  That’s kind of cool.  My first professional inking job was in the back of a Miracleman comic from Eclipse, back in the day, so it seems only fitting.

Recovery is slower than I expected.  I have to nap every time I climb a set of stairs, and drawing still isn’t back up to speed (hence the stolen panels in the above Bun Toon), but never fear, I’m getting better slowly, and expect to be putting pencil to paper in a week or so, just as soon as I can go more than an hour awake.  There’s probably another Bun Toon or two in the whole experience (you people need to know what it’s like to be awake for an aortic stent operation, science is COOL!)

Thanks for all the nice thoughts on facebook and in my email box.   There were literally thousands of messages, so I have yet to read them all, and I promise I will in time.    KFC might have broken my heart, but you guys helped put it back together and it really helped give my spirits a boost.  Not kidding about that.  I get weepy these days, so I’m going to stop thinking about the outpouring, or it’s a wet keyboard and time for another nap.

To my editors at DC:  I’m going to be a little late with the deadline this month, but I’ll finish the job in a little while.  Thanks for moving the schedule a bit so I could visit the afterlife in style.

I’m going to close with this:  For everyone who needs to think about changing their lifestyle, please use me as the poster boy, and don’t wait until your own wake up call.  I’ll take the hit for everyone if they just learn my lesson.  NO PROCESSED FOODS!  Raw veggies, water and fruits, and no meat until after sundown, and it’s a long life for all of us.  Oh, and walk around a bit, not just back and forth to the fridge.

Happy to be in this universe with the rest of you.

Ty the Guy NOT OUT!
