Northern Guard #2 is headed for the stores!

…with another LOVELY Jason Edmiston cover.  It’s due out this Wednesday, so far as I can tell, but I’m never in the loop on these things.  The issue has made it’s way into the hands of a few reviewers already. They have their say here and here.  (Go ahead and click, they’re good reviews or I wouldn’t have linked to ’em.)

If #2 is not in your comic stores this week, holler and shout and cause a ruckus, without doing any bodily harm, and get them to order an issue #2 (and back issues of #1 while you’re making the fuss).     Our little hockey-playing band of super-heroes could use the extra noise, and the artwork by David J. Cutler (as well as the colouring by K.T. Smith!) is thrice worth getting before it’s all turned into a common trade paperback and EVERYONE has one.  You DO want to be first on your block to discover Cutler and Smith before they become the standard bearers of 21st comic art, don’t you?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, you Canadian Comic Book Moment of the Day:

Little known fact: Northern Guard is not, in fact, the first super-hero comic book set in Canada.

Mrs. Saturday Morning Toons. YAY!

Yes, dear.

I wanted my wife to draw this week’s edition of the Bun Toon, like that fictional kid Billy, from FAMILY CIRCUS, used to do, back when that series was cute, and not the subject of constant scorn.

It's funny because it's an innocent's view of divorce.

But instead of drawing one of my scripts, Keiren wrote her own, using my old drawings for the art.   Darn woman.  I ask her to star in my movie, and instantly, she wants to direct.

So today: A BUN TOON treat from my personal muse, the Earth to my sky, the honey to my bee, the Madame to my Curie.

I was going to point out that she only chose drawings of me where I’m not wearing pants….but to be fair, I never wear pants in any of my self portraits.  And yet, we remain married.   AND NOW YOU KNOW MY SECRET SHAME!

Coming Soon:  I get each of my kids to draw one, and I never have to lift a pencil again!

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your comic book marriage moment of zen:


It really matters who's original idea this was, and who just went along with it...
