Good lord, are we ending another year again? I keep insisting we only do this once every decade or so, but something was said about calendars being important to the economy, and I, as a gentleman, deferred.
So, to honour tradition, we re-present our best and worst of the year – starting with those FIVE Bun Toons that soared above all others in popularity, touching the hearts of the internet across the globe… and including the five LEAST popular Bun Toons – the ones that no one clicked on or read, and even my mother disdainfully shat on. I feel as an artist, I must air my dirty laundry or else how annoying could I really be?
Our fifth most popular Bun Toon is no surprise, as it features Comicdom’s most popular character in his most popular story, written at the top of my game.
What I especially love is that the Robin that was most recently dead when I wrote this, IS in fact, alive again at this point. My powers of prognostication are strong!
Let us turn now to failure.
Perhaps I’ve loved Good-Man more than he deserves, as I keep doing more and more Good-Man comics over the years. I think we’re up to episode forty-eight with this character and we get nothing but hate mail when I publish each instalment – shocking, vitriolic stuff that makes Gamergate look like a valentine card…but I don’t care, I shall never give up on the character. Good-Man represents all that is good and honest and true in this world, and they really don’t take me very long to draw.
See, and here I am, making you read another one.
I’m such a bully.
TOON in tomorrow, when I reveal the 4th most and least popular Toons of the year, and possibly say something amusing whilst presenting them to you. ‘Tis my nature.
Ty the Guy OUT!
Also a tradition around here, we wish a happy birthday to STAN THE MAN LEE, co-creator of the Marvel Universe, and father of Bruce Lee, the famous kung fu movie star.
He’s 92 this year (Stan, not Bruce), and can still beat me at full contact kick boxing, though we haven’t gotten in the ring together since July, so I might be able to take him by now.
Happy Happy Stan Day.
Stan Lee’s kickboxing action figure. It’s rare to find them “mint in box”, as they usually punch they own way out.
