The Bun Toon Explains ALL! YAY!

Where would you be without my insights?

Recently, I’ve overheard a few people getting into a spirited philosophical discussion about the purpose of fiction and art in the world.

So, let me spell it out for ya.

And with that, I have rescued the internet from Supergirl, Spider-Gwen, Ghostbusters III, and the lady Thor.  I can’t control Doctor Who, that’s happening in England.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I have been an sf and pop culture fan for more than fifty years, and I’ve seen me all the Star Treks, the Star Wars-es, the Aliens and the Planets of the Apes.  But Doctor Who has ALWAYS been a comic book to me.  It started here:

gibbons who 1

By Dave Gibbons, David Lloyd, Steve Dillon and ALL the great British comic book artists of the 80s, I was hooked on this comic from the start.

But I swear to god, I never got into the show.  My wife and kids love it, all my friends love it, my colleagues and editors love it.  Someday, I’m going to get around to watching it.

But only if they finally cast a Lady Doctor Who, so I’m not holding my breath.

Who Watches the Bun Toons! YAY!

Like you didn't know this Bun Toon was coming...

If you’ve been on the internet in the last few days, you know that fandom collected has their matching Underoos in a bunch over DC’s announcement that they are, in fact, FINALLY doing the WATCHMEN prequels they’ve been threatening for over a decade.   I could say that responses have been mixed, but they seem to be mixed between complete revulsion and utter disgust.

I know what’s frightening people.  The WATCHMEN was a brilliant satire that deconstructed the comic book forever, and people are worried these prequels are going to be just comic books.  They won’t be epoch-making once-in-a-lifetime experiences that will mark everything before and after.  They’ll simply be the work of folks doing their best and falling short of shocking genius.

So what?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Watchmen-in-the-hands-of-others MOMENT.

See? And this turned out just fine.

And who could argue against this steaming pile of quality?

Okay….here’s the ACTUAL “Before Watchmen”

I mean, FUCK Ditko. What did he ever do for comics?
