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.

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.

Two names you probably didn’t expect to see together! I’ve been asked by Alternate History Comics to be a part of their next project, Mark Twain’s Niagara The Graphic Novel.

Joe, Transformers, Judge Dredd), the brilliant Katherine Piro (The Chaste Maid), Shane Kirshenblatt (Dorothy Gale: Journey to Oz, The Bleeding Tree), Ben Shannon (Ayanisach, Superior Iron Man), Mike Rooth (Savage Sword, Captain Canuck, WidowsWake), Keith Grachow (Concrete Martians, Saltwater), superstar Ken Lashley (Batman, Superman, X-Men, The Avengers).

Ty the Guy OUT!

Chain Smoking Bisexual Bun Toons! YAY!

Not the rabbit...he's wholesome

Not the rabbit…he’s wholesome.

There’s so many Comic Book related TV shows on the air this season that a dedicated fan cannot keep up.

But worry not, I am here to make sure there’s nothing you’re not privy to…here is…

websize constantine

It’s actually a hell of a show, pun intended….and but for the empty vessel of an actress playing Zed, they’ve won over the viewing audience at casa Templeton-Smith.

Who says this isn’t the DC age of odd TV?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Your bonus moment today is completely unrelated to Constantine or sorcery in general, except the kind of sorcery you get with cleverness.  I recently came across some of my artwork being used on one of the most wonderfully fun websites on the internet called SUPER-TEAM FAMILY: THE LOST ISSUES!  Here’s the image…

batman samurai jackThat’s my cover from Batman and Robin Adventures #20 being used, only the original DID NOT have Samurai Jack on it…that was added by the fun team at SUPER-TEAM FAMILY: THE LOST ISSUES.

Here’s another one they did, using artwork I drew from the famously pulped Elseworld’s Annual some years back…

batfish

Holy cow!  That’s a Jack Kirby Namor added to the artwork!  That’s too much fun.

Here’s one using a Superboy figure I inked over some Kevin Maguire pencils…

cold superboy

There are HUNDREDS of these covers over at the LOST ISSUES website (only a dozen or so use images from comics I worked on, though), and every one of them is a grand hoot.

Go, check ’em out if you haven’t already!

Award Wishing Bun Toons! YAY!

Clap your hands together and wish...it will mean nothing in the end.

Clap your hands together and wish…it will mean nothing in the end.

This rabbit themed internet cartoon series is nominated for a JOE SHUSTER award this evening as webcomic of the year.

It’s not going to win.  That’s a stone cold guarantee.

However, I have been informed of other plans.

SHUSTER WEBSIZE

I keep alternating between being very honoured and wondering if Canada is just so small a country that they’ve run out of actually deserving people to induct after ten years of doing this, and have moved down to the second tier.

Ty the Guy OUT!

It all started at a five thousand watt radio station in Fresno…where inexplicably they published the above comic book.

Tomorrow…The Joe Shuster Awards!

joe_schuster_awards

Tomorrow will be the 10th year that The Joe Shuster Awards will be giving out awards to deserving Canadian comics creators. The ceremony will take place in the Back Space, the event space that shares an address with The Comic Book Lounge & Gallery.

This year, Ty is again nominated for Web Comic Creator. Fingers crossed! (Although everyone on the list is so amazing…and we’re both kinda pulling for Attila Adjornay who has been nominated for his beautiful Metaphysical Neuroma). But…win or lose, Ty will be inducted into The Canadian Comic Book Creators Hall of Fame (along with Cy Bell and Edmond Good).

Did this image up a couple years ago so it's missing a few more credits...Batman '66 #2 and #6, Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet and...more. Many more.

The event starts at 8pm (doors open at 7pm); gathering afterwards to give people a chance to talk and look at some of the artwork from past Shusters. Check the website for information on all the nominees, and bios of the Hall of Fame inductees.

You could be Heroes…

…just with one eBay purchase!

It’s–time to support Hero Initiative in their latest round of auctions. As always, the Hero Initiative is a wonderful project all comic fans and creators should support. When comics creators find themselves in dire straits through health issues or other problems, Hero Initiative is there to figure out a way to  best help the creator. In order to do so though, Hero Initiative needs money. To this end they run many auctions throughout the year and ask comics creators to contribute their artwork.

The latest round of auctions is for Hero Initiative X-Men 100 Project. The auctions have been going on for a while, but this time–my cover is on the list! I have so thoughtfully decided to give you the moment you should have had in the latest X-Men movie but did not get–Future Beast and Past Beast beasting all over each other!

…aaand that’s why we can’t have good DC Comics film franchises.

If you’re not familiar with David S. Goyer, or his delightful take on comic fandom, DC characters or She-Hulk in specific, you can go here and breathe it all in like a fine bouquet.   Just remember while you’re reading it, that Mr. Goyer is in charge of the DC movie universe.

I hear the new X-Men picture is pretty good.

Ty the Guy OUT!

SHE HULK 21

This is one of a handful of issues of She-Hulk I co-wrote with Dan Slott.  If we would have known what Mr. Goyer was doing with the issues after we worked on ’em, we would have sat in Purell while plotting…

Euuurggh.

SPIDERMAN LINK

Why was I dressed like a Spider-Bunny last week?  There’s only one way to find out, true believers.
