Setting an Example for My Son Bun Toons! YAY!

My wife is away for the weekend, which is why this Bun Toon isn’t in colour.  If she’d been with me last night, probably none of this would have happened.  She’s usually the one who puts a stop to things before they get too far…


I don’t take no nine-dollar scam lying down, peoples.  I am CONAN of the PARKING LOT!

Ty the Guy OUT!

Of course, there are already comic book heroes patrolling our parking lots.

Dog Poop Romance Bun Toons, YAY!

Wait, DOG POOP?!? I must have mis-typed that!

Today:  A special “unseen Bun Toon”  Honest To God True-Life Adventure with an odd origin and a bit of a guest starring art-job from TK Labus (a friend of mine who is currently an animator on the bizarre cartoon series Ugly Americans).

Not too long ago, I was a guest on a reality TV show called “Outlaw In-Laws”, where I was asked to teach a man and his soon to be mother-in-law how to write and draw their own comic book to be printed and given out for the young man’s wedding.  Amazingly enough, these two didn’t learn how to write and draw their own comic book in the space of half an hour.  Instead, with their nuptials looming, I was conscripted into service to write and draw the darn thing myself.  Badly pressed for time and partly because I liked the more feminine style that she uses, I asked my friend TK Labus to help out with the art, and she penciled the story from my thumbnail layouts, after which I added a bit of wash tone to the whole affair and we made it time to have these handed out to the wedding guests as they attended the reception.  It’s the romantic story of our hero’s proposal told in Honest To God True Life Adventure form.  And it involves dog poop.

Sort of.


That should bring a tear to your eye…either with emotion or something else. Considering she said “yes” to that proposal, I assume they were meant for each other and are enjoying their life together.   I didn’t attend the wedding myself, there’s no telling what was in the cake.

Ty the Guy OUT!

If you look above, at that cleverly designed banner at the top of the page, you’ll notice the little bunny to the left.  That’s me.  It has been for decades now.  It’s really so I can do a “self portrait” and not have to make it look anything like me…I’m simply always the bunny in the story, no questions.  If there ARE questions, I usually tell people it’s because I played Harvey in a high school stage production of the famous play about the giant rabbit (I played the actual rabbit, not Elwood P. Dowd), and that often satisfies the curious…clearly folks who ain’t seen the play.

At any rate, over the years I’ve done a series of autobiographical stories, often called “HONEST TO GOD TRUE LIFE ADVENTURES”, for various publications, and since they’ve never been collected, I thought I’d run some of them here, and share them with the untold dozens of readers who frequent this page.   Here’s the first installment, one that used to hang up in my editor’s office at DC.
