Hop, hop and away!

I promise, no complaining about the new Zack Snyder movie, except for this bit here.

Another honest-to-god-true-life-adventure.  Ah, the life I lead…

Torch passing

I suppose my other children are pretty cool, too.  No, really.

As long time readers of this blog might recall, my eldest son, Kellam once went out on Halloween as BLUE SUPERMAN!  blue-superman-photo

Perhaps the only Blue Superman ever on Halloween.  Not a single house knew who he was.

Below is a conversation I had with Taylor about the Archie characters.  It’s an ongoing education with my brood.

And, of course, me and the lad aren’t the only ones with a Christopher Reeve man-crush.

Jerry Seinfeld’s man-crush on the big blue boy scout is so strong, a few years back, American Express actually hired me to draw Superman and Jerry palling around together.  No, really.

I think Superman is tickling Jerry here.  What was I thinking when I drew this?

Bun Toon V Hollywood: Darn the Justice

You knew the risks going in.

Who says movie makers don’t listen to the people?

 

BATMAN v superman web

Wonder Woman is cool.  She’s the only thing in the movie that makes you smile, or sit up, or discover yourself enjoying something.  I will greatly look forward to the Wonder Woman movie if it’s anything like the twenty-three seconds of air-time she gets in this one.

It might have been a stronger movie if they hadn’t dedicated so much of the film to advertising their next six movies and instead spent time building the characters, motivations and relationships of THIS one.

Sigh.

I miss the cinematic triumphs of Green Lantern and Jonah Hex.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Back when the boys got along.  Who’s a pretty Batman?

You are.  Yes you are.

One of my many contributions to the World’s Finest-ness of Animated Comics.  The first issue of Superman & Batman magazine with a cover by the rabbit.

Movie Magic Bun Toons! YAY!

I’m ready for my close up, Mr. Warner Brothers…

We’re in the final days of counting down before the big, big DC Smash-Em-Up Justice League movie-palooza hits the theatres.   As an expert on the characters, let me introduce you to the new kids on the blockbuster…

Wonder Twin Power…shape of a….

I can’t say it in a family webtoon.

See you at the movies, gang!

It’s hardly the first time the Super-Friends have behaved like a bag of crotch rockets.  Here’s how they treated their beloved team mates Wendy and Marvin when they found NEW friends.

superfriends

No joke.  This was the last appearance of Wendy and Marvin.  They were never heard from again.  I think they became homeless and had to eat the dog.

Evil Bun Toons! Bwah hah hah!

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

There goes my next three assignments from Marvel.  I live like a rebel.

Of course, the only place Donald Trump BELONGS is in the funny papers.

LEGENDARY BUN TOONS! YAY!

window bunny

A legend in my own lunch time.

As always, when new comic book media arrives, I’m here to help sort it all out.

The CW just launched a new series, spinning off from ARROW and FLASH, and I watched the pilot so you don’t have to…

I-Zombie is safe.  That’s about a zombie.  And Lucifer is coming, and he’s hardly “B-List” in the name-recognition game.  But I worry about these “Legends”.

Past is prologue.

I have it on good authority that Brother Power The Geek is joining the LEGENDS squad as soon as they can find anyone who remembers him.  Then come the SEA DEVILS.

Quick Diagnosis Bun Toon! YAY!

  Thank god I’ve got socialized medicine.

that's my sickness

This had to have been a mistake in some way.  My MORE FUN #105 is in near mint shape, and should NOT have been in any kind of bargain bin.  I figure it got put in there by mistake, and the guy I was talking to was an employee, and not the guy running the booth, and he simply didn’t know.

I wish I could enjoy that kind of good luck, but I think about the boss coming back from his lunch and finding out his thousand dollar comics went for five dollars.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I have almost the exact same story with a copy of SHOWCASE #9, the first solo appearance of Lois Lane.

…though, to be fair, my SHOWCASE #9 is a little beat up…it’s still not beaten up enough to get for under ten bucks, though!

Today's Bun Toon will be the result of exposure to Red Kryptonite and it should wear off in 24 hours.

Have you guys checked out the new SUPERGIRL show in CBS this fall?   Too much fun.  It almost makes up for Constantine being cancelled.

Still…if you’re unfamiliar with the MAID OF MIGHT, I’m here to help.

SUPERGIRL in four panels

In my spare time this last month, I’ve been re-reading the Supergirl stories from the Fifties and Sixties in my collection (I have nearly all of ’em).  Wow, what a bizarre ride of sexism and patriarchy it all was back then…just like the prevailing culture.

Thank Rao we’ve moved past all that.

Supergirl has a doppelgänger named “Power Girl”, who is from a parallel universe where the inhabitants all have much larger boobs.

Here the two Karas argue about "who wore it sluttier?"

Here the two Karas argue about “who wore it sluttier?”

Strangely enough, the parallel world version of Kara is quite popular as a cosplay outfit.

Speaking of strange, the following two panels, from an issue in 1959, still sort of freaks people out…

super marriage

Then there’s THIS moment.

superwoman

It’s worth noting, that Supergirl is also a doppelgänger for Lois Lane, Lana Lang and a woman named Lesla-Lar from Kandor….all of whom can seamlessly disguise themselves as Kara Z0r-el without make-up or preparation.

Superman has the hots for ALL of ’em at one point or another.

Apparently women were interchangable in the Fifties.
