SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS

Whoops!  Dinner at the folks last night, so I slept in this morning, and the Saturday Morning Toons are an hour late.  But they’re here now, you excited and breathless people!  Calm the #$()* down!!

When last we left Stavros Stavropolis and Lana Little, Space Ranchers and devoted Love-Muffins, they had escaped from Lord Vodon’s Astro-Dungeon…RIGHT INTO THE VACUUM OF OUTER SPACE!!  Damned tough bit of bad luck, no?  So we join them, mere seconds away from the after-life…

And now, a BUNNY FUNNY with a special significance.  I drew this as a gift for my wife, many years ago, when we first met, and fell in love ourselves.  It’s hanging in her work studio, but I felt since the subject was LOVE today, I could share it with the world.  Awww….(I bet I get some action from the wife later today because of this!)

—————————————————————–

That’s it for the Saturday Webtoons, but before I leave, I’m going to remind you of our SPIFFY contest around here.  Share your HOVERBOY memories and win a piece of ORIGINAL ART by Ty the Guy (that’s ME!).

There doesn't seem to be a villain on this cover, unless you count the TACO BELL dog...

Send us a description of your favorite Hoverboy villain from the THOUSANDS of issues of Vigilance Comics published over the last 75 years, and we’ll be picking ONE lucky entry by lottery –and the winner receives a PAINSTAKING RECREATION of the original cover, made with such precision by me, that you’ll SWEAR the image is the original art.  I mean it will REALLY look like the original art.  Am I being subtle enough about who draws these things?!?

Kerchack the gorilla is not allowed, as he was clearly stolen from the Edgar Rice Burroughs people.

But FIRST ya gotta join the Hoverboy Fan page on Facebook.  That’s easy to do if you have a computer and no sense of your own personal privacy, apparently, as Facebook has become evil in the last few weeks.  But the contest is fun, and you might win some original art, you grubby heathens, so why not give it a try?!?  Details for the contest can be found HERE, and of course, the Hoverboy website, as always is found HERE.

And, to be fair, the Native Americans in this issue were the victims of the story.

Ain’t the inter-tubes fun?

TY THE GUY OUT!

SATURDAY IS ALWAYS FREE COMICS DAY at ART LAND!

Big day.  It’s our Christmas, and I’m out playing Santa in downtown Toronto at Paradise Comics.  Come visit!

And now, with just a little further ado, we bring you the Saturday Morning Comics.

Oh, those silly space rogues, what will they get into next week?  I wish the hell I knew– who has time to write that far in advance?

(read the previous chapters here)

In the meantime, here’s—

COMIC ARCHEOLOGY 101

This blog was originally set up to scan and sort out all the original art and old unprinted things I’d done in the eleven decades I’ve been in the biz (starting as a ghost inker on “THE YELLOW KID”) .  In my most recent bout of going through  “THE PILE”, I came across some comic strips that I’d done for my high school paper… in COLOUR!  (I have no recollection of  a colour edition of our high school paper, but I remember things about as well as that Dorrie the fish character  from….you know…that movie with the fish– so anything is possible.)

But I scanned ’em, and now you get to laugh at them (for all the wrong reasons at this point) and see where it all began…with no apparent talent whatsoever.  Oh, yes, I was a little influenced by Doonesbury back then.  I was sixteen, and at that age, one’s instinct is to directly steal someone else’s style and skills.  It’s why teen girls love vampire stories–ALL teenagers are vampires in some way, the little shits.

And now, after so much ado, I present, the crappy work of a 16 year old Ty.

It's funny because it's true, I think.

I’m getting all nostalgic for a time when people sat in bars without open carry weapons.

Here’s another one from the days when TV was a broadcast medium.  I might put up more of these cave paintings next week, unless someone stops me with an injunction.  You’ve been warned.

Comedy from back when I had hair on my head.

That’s it for today.  See you back here next week when I figure out a way to have Stavros and Lana escape from certain death, or I ignore it completely and start a new adventure on Venus.  It depends on how much spare time I have to write a GOOD script.  And don’t forget to visit me at PARADISE COMICS today for a free comic book, a free sketch, a free smile and a free curse in VODON-ESE.

Ty the Guy.

SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS

———————————————————————————————–

When last we left the heroic crew of the Sinister Spacecraft, they had lost their MP3 player and one of their beloved Space Cows to the Specter of Death.   We rejoin Stavros and Lana as they relax at home, trying to get over the recent trauma.

That’s it for today.  You’ll have to scroll down for the Kick Ass creators column that all you kids seem to love.

And click HERE for more chapters of the Sinister Spacecraft.
