Spooky True Tales of Halloween Bun Toons!

Boo!  Scared ya, didn't I?

Boo! Scared ya, didn’t I?

I’m doing a personal appearance at GOTHAM CENTRAL Comic Store in Mississauga this morning, so the Bun Toon is going to be a reminiscence of Halloweens past.  For angry subscribers who did not expect a “encore performance” this morning, contact me directly: refunds are available after an exhausting and humiliating process.




For those in the Toronto/Mississauga area, I’ll see you at GOTHAM CENTRAL in Mississauga!.

Everyone else, enjoy the tricking treating.  Back here NEXT WEEK with an all-new Bun Toon!  I promise!

Just a Second Bun Toons! YAY!

Normally my #1 Bun Toon of last year comes on the FIRST day of the new year, but yesterday, essentially without warning, I was whisked away in a car with my wife and children to a town far far away from my home for a larger family gathering of my wife’s brother/sister/mother peoples.  Delightful time was had by all, and many of the family are still there as I type this…but as for me, I was delinquent in yesterday’s Bun Toon entry for reasons of merry making, family and good will to all.   So there.

As a result,  I’m dragging the New Year out for one more day in my virtual reality Bunny World.  How can that be a bad thing?  You get to get blind drunk again, as we all get to look at the SECOND most popular Bun Toon  (and the nearly least popular Bun Toon) of 2014 on this, not really New Year’s Day.


If  I had to list the Marvel Characters I’d Care Least About Getting Their Own Movie, The Guardians of the Galaxy would have made my bottom five…at least in their original Marvel form.  I mean, I actually READ those comics when they first came out in the Seventies…and I might have been the only one…


This Bun Toon was shared, and clicked, and linked to, and posted all over the interweb when I put it up this summer, and I’m going to assume it was the free publicity that it generated for the movie that made Guardians into last year’s runaway hit film.  Marvel has yet to thank me.

I also rescued Constantine from cancellation last fall with the following Bun Toon, done in a similar vein.

It just squeaked out of the top five, so in theory you shouldn’t be seeing it here…I suspect Constantine put some sort of a spell on me…

Ah, the power I have over Hollywood.  He started smoking on the show the very next week….


Now for another Bun Toons From The Dustbin of History.

Once again, it’s a sentimental, holiday themed Bun Toons that didn’t move the web-clickers.  The big audience just wants to see cars explode and things on fire and people getting their ears cut off…

Caution:  Trigger warning for anyone who’s ever had their ears cut off…

I told you.  No exploding cars – That was the problem.

But I was IN a car with the wife and kids yesterday, which is why you didn’t see this Bun Toon when you were supposed to.



See you guys tomorrow for NEW NEW YEARS DAY!   YAY!

Seriously, I’m keeping up the lie.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Halloween Bun Toons! YAY!

Halloween is always  my favourite day of the year.  Better than Christmas because you’re not expected to get presents for cousins you don’t like, and you get to dress like a sexy badger if that’s your thing.

Yesterday was Free Comic Book Day for Halloween all over this land, and many happy people showed up to their local comic shop to be converted to the love of the Hallow’s Eve with free comics and fun.

But it was not always this way….



This actually happened.

But yesterday, they showed up with happy grins.

Geek acceptance moves forward.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Holiday Bun Toons! YAY!

For the Great Pumpkin commands me!

Ever since I was a child, the great debate was about which holiday was the best all year.   To me, it was never close.

It’s not even close.

Ty the Guy OUT!

And now, as if there was still a chance Christmas was still in the running, here’s your BONUS Halloween Comic Book Moments.

Halloween Photos.

I mentioned on the Bun Toons last week that my ten year old daughter, Kate,  was working on her Wonder Woman costume, and she insisted it had to have the Golden Age look to it, with the long pants and the golden eagle, etc.

There we go.

The pants are a teensy bit longer than the originals, mostly to combat a Canadian Halloween, and we decided on nothing off the shoulder for a ten year old in the cold, but the costume scored big with out daughter.  Her mother Keiren did most of the work on this wonderful custom job, I just drew in part of the bird.

But the costume wasn’t the HALF the fun for our Golden Age Wonder Woman…

It was the honour guard that accompanied her.

Steve Trevor,  Steve Rogers, and a gumshoe up to no good in a city that’s got friends in all the wrong places.

Those are her brothers Sean (as the flyboy that looks suspiciously like MacArthur), Taylor (as the two bit cop with a chip on his badge) and their friend Josh (as the proud infantry man ready to mix it up).

The whole 1940s effect was pretty darn cool, if I might say so myself, and as they went from house to house, they  got a lovely reaction.

Who says this isn’t the Golden Age of Halloween Photos?

Our eldest son, Kellam and our daughter in law, Jessica came over and brought fantastic Halloween cakes and cookies that looked like pumpkins and ghosts.

 Beat THAT, Christmas!  You Suck.  Halloween ROCKS.

Here now, your BONUS Templeton-Smith Halloween Moment:

Behold the Family Pumpkins! And take note of the smattering of blood up by the door. Attention to detail.

True Halloween Bun Toons Extravaganza, YAY!

BOO! (True story!)

Around this house, Halloween is better than Christmas, and more fun than Birthdays.  You get to wear a disguise and see inside your neighbour’s front door.  We rarely do that on Christmas.

As always, every word of this is true, we didn’t even change the names of the innocent.  Screw the innocent.  What did they ever do for me?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Bun Toons Halloween Moment:  From last year’s epic Halloween Bun Toon.

Superman vs. Jesus vs. Hallowe’en Toons! Yay!

It’s Saturday, and time for me to blaspheme again.  This time, it’s SEASONAL!

I've given you bun toons. Now you owe me candy.

Please, no letters or emails, I’m illiterate anyway.

Enjoy your trick or treating, folks.  And try to remember, if you really want to gain weight this weekend, forget candy and head straight for a KFC Double Down, your doctor will be glad you did.


Here now, your Bun Toons moment of Zen:
