FISTFIGHT OF THE FORGOTTEN————————————————————————————————–

To be fair, Pete Best might not have made it to the Ed Sullivan performance, but he did make a couple of million dollars off his contribution to the Beatles’ Anthology albums, and he’s gotten to outlive a couple of his ex-band mates, so he wins in the end.

Bill Finger didn’t even get a Google Doodle on his birthday, so sigh.

Ty the Guy OUT!


Your Bonus Batman vs. the Beatles moments are fun-

First up:

batman 222

Behind this gorgeous Neal Adams cover is a story by Frank Robbins about Batman and Robin solving the mystery of Paul McCartney’s murder…using clues found on album covers.    Well…the murder of Saul Cartwright…I guess the editor wouldn’t let ’em use the REAL Paul, as he wasn’t actually murdered.

This is a cover I did for Batman and Robin Adventures #13.  It came out around the same time as Beatles’ Anthology, so…

…the story revolved around Scarecrow using the Anthology broadcast to piggy back a fear frequency to America…we still weren’t allowed to use their real names, so I named Paul McCartney “Mike McGear” (an in-joke for Beatlesmaniacs, anyone know why?).

Basically, this Batman meets the Beatles thing has been going on for a while…

Heavenly Bun Toons. YAY!

I might blog different, but I'm doing it on a PC.

The calendar made me do this…I cannot be held responsible.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it  ( just like the leather chair I’m sitting in, while not wearing pants).  But you don’t need to hear my troubles, not when so many people have left us…

See…That Jobs fellow passed away this week, and believe it or not, it’s The Old Walrus’ 71st birthday tomorrow.  The dates compelled me.

Almost against my will.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your Bonus Comics Moment.

Wait, since Wally Wood has also croaked, who gets sued for this one?  We need a great ghost-lawyer to sort it all out.  Is that Robert Kardashian guy still dead? At least this comic wasn’t published by APPLE COMICS, it’s just the title.  I don’t think there ever was an “Apple Comics”, was there?

Ah, damn.

UPDATE”  It’s apparently Harvey Pekar’s birthday today as well…Another great ex-human being who gave my world so much joy.  All the best people are no longer breathing, eh?

You'll never stop me from cartooning. Don't make me cut you.


-First off.  We must wish happy thoughts to Yoko, and the missing walrus.

Who knew John did a bunny self portrait?  It shows his range.

Anyway…It’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada…time to visit the mom’s house and eat turkey while the kids put permanent marks in their grandmother’s furniture.  While I was over at the mom’s house a couple of weeks ago, I was handed a box of old drawings and cartoons from the start of my career…including some submissions to humour magazines drawng in my early twenties.  In honour of turkey and visiting home, I present a couple of them on my bunny blog.

All this goes to prove that young cartoonists should not PUN so much.  It’s a disease when you’re that age.  See you next week with an ALL NEW Bun Toon that has never been in my mother’s house.


Here now, your comic book moment of zen:
