Four Characters, Four Panels Bun Toons! YAY!

Fourth time is not the charm.

Fourth time is not the charm.

Jon Stewart retired this week, and Don Trump won the Republican debate.  But neither event can hold a candle to this week’s real disaster…


There is so much wrong with this movie that it defies critique.   At its heart, it’s a movie about brilliant creative people, written and directed by slow-witted dullards who understood nothing of the source material.

I tend to root for comic book movies, and it’s very rare for one to disappoint as much as this one did.  Green Lantern and Jonah Hex are the only other two that got down to this level of pure, unfiltered awfulness like the new FF movie did.  If you’ve seen either of those previous bombs, you know where we are.


A terrible adaptation encrappens us all.

Ty the Guy OUT!


Without question, this is STILL the best Fantastic Four movie:


It even made a pretty good comic book, drawn by my buddy Marcio Takara!

Now, if Pixar ever made a live action Incredibles movie, we might have something resembling a proper FF picture.

Dark Knight Rises in FOUR PANELS!

I promise you….I LOVED the LAST Dark Knight movie. Don’t blame me.

Spoilers ahead, and I don’t mean Stephanie Brown.  Though she would have been cool….

Considering that DARK KNIGHT is one of my favorite movies ever, and Batman is one of my favorite characters ever, and that Inception was, like, an amazing movie, my level of disappointment with this bloated, pretentious, wrong-headed car wreck of a film is a heavy burden.

Please, if you enjoyed this movie, don’t send me hate mail.  You’ll never change my mind.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your bloated Batman comic book moment:

Art and story by my friend Rob Walton. It’s better than Dark Knight Rises. Except for the Catwoman bits.


For last week’s somber and not-at-all-funny Bun Toons, respectfully click the Bunny above.

For every Bun Toon ever, click the much less dour rabbit above.

Captain America in Four Panels. YAY!

When Bun Toon Rabbit throws his mighty shield….

Unless you’re living under a rock, you’re aware that Marvel Films has done it again with the new Captain America movie.  And once again, Bun Toons is here to help out those who might only know Captain America through Saturday morning cartoons,  urban legends, rock and roll records or video games.   Not only is Cap my favorite Marvel character, he’s also a man with a rich history worth knowing.  Here it is, all summed up in as concise a manner as I can manage…

Ty the Guy OUT!


I told you there were Captain America rock and roll records.

And lest you believe that this is Cap’s first foray into the movies, it’s actually his FIFTH time on the big screen.  Steven Colbert has been making fun of versions #2 and #3 for quite a while now


and I’m not going to mention the 4th Captain America movie from the early 90s with Matt Salinger, but I do have a treat for you guys who might not be aware of the FIRST Cap film serial from the 40s…

No shield, no Bucky, nothing but the strong left cross of an American hero.


For last week’s bun toon, poke Prometheus in the kisser.

Green Lantern in Four Panels Bun Toons. YAY!

In brightest day, in blackest night, I have shades for my windows and I sleep all right.

The Green Lantern movie is finally here.  After months of tepid build-up, and fairly uninspired previews, the ho-hum summer blockbuster has arrived in theaters to fairly poor reviews and little enthusiasm.  Just like Green Lantern deserves!

Oh, the letters I’m going to get for putting down Hal Jordan.  Both of his fans are going to be nasty…(NOTE:  Infinitesimal movie spoilers in the last panel.)

Oh, Warner Brothers feature film department, can you never make a decent DC movie without Batman in it?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Green Lantern/Warner Brothers movie moment:

If you haven’t seen it, the above video is the best Green Lantern film, SO FAR…

Thor Bun Toons, YEA!

Or rather, Yea VERILY!

Everyone’s seen the movie by now, including a new crop of fans who have no idea who this long-haired hipster doofus was before he made it to the big screen.  But I’m here to help, thank Odin.   So for you neophyte Asgardians, here now is…

It’s always funny to say DICK on the internet.

I’m going to catch trouble now, because I didn’t include Hogun the Grim.  Just you watch.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your Bonus Thor/ Templeton moment:  The only issue of Thor I ever wrote (for the Marvels Comic Group about eight years ago…)

Super Bowl Football Toons! Yay!

Too busy to blog. Never too busy to Bun Toon!

The annual Super Bowl madness is once again upon us this weekend.  The testing of men, the tasting of triumph, the gating of tails.  For those unfamiliar with this ritual, I give you…

This sporting event does not involve a puck in any way, Fellow Canadians, so  go back to your hibernating sleep, it does not concern you.

Ty the Guy OUT!

And now, your Merry Marvel Football-related Comic Book Moment:

 Mutant NFL players with Superpowers!  Gaze upon it, ye mighty, and despair.  This series ran for more issues than you’d think in the late 80s.  


Superman In Four Panels, YAY!

Doing my court ordered community service

He’s our first super-hero, if you don’t count Hercules.  And he’s the first super-powered hero in the comics, if you don’t count Popeye.  And he’s our first costumed hero, if you don’t count the Phantom.  Superman was there before any of them, if you don’t count the ones that came before him.

For those who are unfamiliar with his world, here’s…

There.  If you suddenly have to write his adventures, you’ve got a foundation to build from.

Enough of this cartooning, I have drawings to do!

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your Sole Kryptonian Survivors Comic Book Moment:

When the only other member of your race is your first cousin…sigh…

Star Trek Bun Toons, YAY!

Ah, hardly up by noon, but this one took a couple of minutes, and so it’s only Saturday morning by Hawaii time.  That still counts, right?

Today I boldly toon where no bunny has gone before.

Here it is.  All summed up.  You needn’t look further.   I’ve been investigating Star Trek for decades,  I own all the episodes, all the series, the  movies and cartoons, and even wrote a STAR Trek TOS OGN for IDW that nearly won a JSA,  and I’ve got it all down to a science.    Now, I present to you…

Beam me up Mr. Kyle, I’m afraid there’s nothing more to be said.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your Star Trek Comic Book Moment of Zen:

Yes, it’s real.
