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

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!

Pre-Con Sketchcover Commissions 2016

MattTheRadarTech_TyTempleton

I generally only do commissions on-site at conventions but after a number of requests, I did some in advance last year. I was pleased at the results (I like working at home in my drawing chair!) so I’ll be doing it again this year. At the moment, I’m limiting this to sketchcovers. As long as a convention is still listed, I’ll be taking commission requests for it but I am limiting numbers for each con.

All covers will be available for pick-up ONLY at the convention. Payment can be in cash at the convention or you can PayPal me before pickup.

Holy Batman Day, Old Chum! Bat-Toons! YAY!

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-Bun Toons!

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-Bun Toons!

Hey folks!  It’s BATMAN DAY and I’m already up and out of the house, visiting the fine Bat-fans at One Million Comics in Toronto (531 Yonge St, just south of Wellesley), signing comics, doing sketches, annoying the fans, etc.

Since I haven’t the spare ten seconds to toon any buns before I leave this morning,  I leave you with a heaping helping of Bat-Toons from Bun Toons past….a TOP TEN Batman Bun Toon-a-palooza!

Who says this isn’t the Bunny Age of Gotham City Satire?

else-im-going-to-do1

This Elseworlds Toon was created before Brian Williams got into trouble, so ignore his recent history.

Yeah, I know I reprint that one all the time….but this is a top ten.

See you at One Million Comics!

If you make it out to visit us at the store, here’s what I’ll be doing…

Cover sketches, baby!  Bring me a blank cover (and a little of that folding money) and I’ll muck up the cover with one my doodles on it.

Whee.

Sometimes the good guys win one.

Congratulations on everyone who did right this week.  There’s a few that deserve a shout out, but perhaps one in particular…

Marc and I are prepped and ready to fight the good fight when it comes to the creation of Courageous Cat.  My information tells me Stan Lee was involved.

Most readers of this Bunny Blog know I might have had a thing or two to do with Marc’s book, but I cannot stress enough the above-and-beyond work that Marc did since the graphic novel/kid’s book was released.

I noticed my Batman without Bob Kane strip is being reprinted all over the internet again this week…but I SO prefer that people run with the PROPER one, so here it is again…

I’m in Montreal, so…no new Bun Toons today…BUT….

batman points

….But I will share a bunch of new sketch covers I’ve done for the Montreal convention.

wonder woman

If you’re in the Montreal area, come on down and say hello!  I’m always happy to meet a new fan when I’m out of town…even if Montreal is as close to my second “home” town as it gets….I’m still away from my desk.

caesar joker 66

I mean…my mother’s from Montreal.  My brother in law lives there…my eldest son went to college in Quebec…

batman 66 and robin 66

…and of course, I’m currently there myself.

batman rain

So come on over and say hello.  I’m happy to do a sketch for you, the character of your choice (though probably not characters I’ve never heard of or seen before, so nothing from World of Warcraft or Fast and the Furious, I’m afraid…)

batman 66 batarang

I do a lot of Batman covers.  Probably because of all the Batman comics I’ve drawn over the years.

bat climb

So…I’ll see you guys when I get back with a new Bun Toon.  Probably something about comics, or American politics, or whatever happens between now and then.

Ty Cannot Come to the Bun Toon Today!

If only I had the time to draw this well today...

If only I had the time to draw this well today…

With all the comic book tsuris that happened this week (Batgirl covers and all), I had lots to say in bunny form, but alas, my opinions are restricted to my mouth today, as I am attending a Comic Convention in Toronto, and am out of the house by 8.30 this morning.

Sheesh!

logo-trans

I’m having a great time (except for the lack of sleep) so come on down and say “hi”, and if I’m functioning and awake, I’ll do you a sketch, and mouth off about something pithy.

miracle man 2015

Yesterday I did this Miracle Man for a fan…literally HOURS after re-reading the 16 issue “Original Writer” reprints from Marvel earlier in the day. Talk about timing….

But if I’m muttering and snarly, I need sleep and might be about to pass away from exhaustion.  Then it’s best to ask for THIS character, as I can see her anyway…

Another Friday sketch from Toronto.

Ah, I’m kidding.  I’m still happiest drawing Batman.  I know what he looks like without reference.

Happy New New Year Bun Toons! YAY!

top five logo 1

Happy New Year everybody (he said, knowing it isn’t)!  Wasn’t last night a blast (probably  not)?

It’s OFFICIALLY the first of the new year,  here at Bun Toon Central, and time for the Most and Least Popular Bun Toons of 2014 to be revealed.

—————————————————————————————————

Our champion of the year was read by far, far more folks than possibly any Bun Toon of all time.  There’s almost no way to tell.  Normally, I use the local webcounter here, and tally up all the links back to determine how many eyeballs landed on my humble bunny funnies, but this little viral monster ended up everywhere online, on everyone’s ELSE’S tumbler, on their website and eventually onto the printed page as a poster (available exclusively at Reno’s Wizard World Comic Convention last year!).  I can’t count up other people’s tumbler numbers, and couldn’t even guess at how many people lifted this Bun Toon whole cloth, so we’re just going to say “lots and lots” and leave it at that.

And it’s all for the love of Mr. Finger…

fingerless batman poster websize

That version above is actually the “cleaned up” version of the strip, which originally ran in a much cruder form, but it was hard to read, and I wasn’t proud of the pastiche style…

The original looked like this:

BATMAN WITHOUT BILL

But who can read that lettering?

Best parts of crusading for Bill The Boy Wonder last year:  Creating awareness of his story, and getting to talk to his granddaughter Athena Finger.  The tide is starting to turn towards justice for Bill’s place in history:  If you go to Batman’s wiki page, it says co-created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger nowadays.  It’s only DC Comics that can’t admit it, but the part of fandom that isn’t controlled by an iron-clad legal document that keeps Finger from getting his due credit, is happy to embrace Batman’s other papa.

Finally.  Batman fans have been given the Finger.

Time for hilarious failure.

When they decided to kill off Wolverine, right after bringing Peter Parker back from the dead, slightly after the return of Jean Gray, but after the murder of Professor X, which was followed by the return of Nightcrawler…I started to think there was no choice…at least if I wanted my Bun Toons to catch on.

dead bunny websize version

That’s Ortiz, the Hispanic Pool Boy in the last panel, a beloved ethnic slur that showed up in the strip a few times over the summer.  He wasn’t popular either.

That strip up there was only the SECOND least read Bun Toon of the year…the honour of being dead LAST was earned the very next week when I decided to keep up with this silly Dead Bunny Saga…and NO ONE showed up to play along.

dead bunny part 2

The Pepsi drinking version of the Bunny (with the backwards signature on his shirt) hosted Bun Toons for the rest of the summer, but I quickly stopped making reference to his being an evil twin as no one seemed to notice or care.

Sigh.

Eventually, I simply put the signature on the shirt the right way ’round again in September, and the readership boycott drew to a close.

I thought it was a funny “take” on the industry’s fondness for slaughtering its heroes, but I’ve never been so wrong in my instincts before.

Which means, the epic, twenty-eight part “Return of the Bunny” will never see the light of day.  It’s a pity, because I would have brought back the Watcher, Gwen, Jor-El and Lara, and Jack Kirby in successive chapters.

———————————————————————————————

See you NEXT week for the start of Bun Tooning 2015!  (No entry tomorrow, I don’t want to overstay my welcome with six Bun Toons in a row!)  What’s coming up will surprise you, because it will surprise me.  I never know what these little stories will be about until Saturday morning.

Ty the Guy OUT for 2014!
