No Bun Toon until tomorrow, folks, as I’m off to Woodbridge Heroes, 3901 Highway 7, Woodbridge ON.
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?
Who says? I need names.
And that’s the REAL reason why it’s best not to go out in public. The potential for humiliation is always looming. ALWAYS.
You remember, years ago, when America was the home of the brave and the land of the free?
Ty the Guy OUT!
The comics industry saw three major creators retire this week, and it’s worth noting their passing.
This is a Christmas story my father told me when I was young.
You can see where I get my spirit of the holiday from…
Ty the Guy OUT!
Here are a couple of the Christmas Covers I’ve done over the years…
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…
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?
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…
That’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…
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…
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.
I’m in the middle of the most crazy deadline pressures of my adult life this last week as I wrap up Batman-Green Hornet and gear up for a quick, but fun visit with Spider-Man. I’m so, so, so close to the bone with the deadlines that any waking moment not devoted to drawing Adam West and the gang is immoral and cruel to my editor (and colourist and letterer), so I’m afraid I have to run some RE-RUN TOONS this weekend. (Only the second time I’ve done this in over four years of Bun Tooning! I’m NOT a failure. I’m NOT!)
Since it’s Batman (and eventually Spider-Man) that are knocking my calendar days around, I figure it’s only fair to re-run some Bun Toons that feature ’em.
Bonus Comics on a Deadline Moment featuring my two favourite cartoonists:
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.
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.
It all started at a five thousand watt radio station in Fresno…where inexplicably they published the above comic book.
