Hop, hop and away!

I promise, no complaining about the new Zack Snyder movie, except for this bit here.

Another honest-to-god-true-life-adventure.  Ah, the life I lead…

Torch passing

I suppose my other children are pretty cool, too.  No, really.

Ty the Guy OUT!


As long time readers of this blog might recall, my eldest son, Kellam once went out on Halloween as BLUE SUPERMAN!  blue-superman-photo

Perhaps the only Blue Superman ever on Halloween.  Not a single house knew who he was.

Below is a conversation I had with Taylor about the Archie characters.  It’s an ongoing education with my brood.


And, of course, me and the lad aren’t the only ones with a Christopher Reeve man-crush.

Jerry Seinfeld’s man-crush on the big blue boy scout is so strong, a few years back, American Express actually hired me to draw Superman and Jerry palling around together.  No, really.



I think Superman is tickling Jerry here.  What was I thinking when I drew this?

Great Krypton Bun Toons! YAY!

Hop, hop...and AWAY!

Hop, hop…and AWAY!

So, I saw the Man of Steel yesterday with my 13 year old son.

And I asked him, as we were walking out of the theatre, “What did you think?  Did you like it?”

And he said, “I don’t know.”

That’s kind of my reaction…(Slight spoilers ahead)

WEBSIZE MAN OF STEEL REVIEWThe cast (except for Amy Adams, who is preposterously mis-cast as Lois Lane) is uniformly great.  The direction is fantastic, the special effects magnificent.  The battle sequences are the most spectacular super-fights ever put to film.  Better, even, than the Avengers.

But it’s all in service of a movie that is geared to make you think Superman is a hateful, selfish, homicidal dick.  The last scene of the movie is Superman needlessly destroying expensive government property, just to be an asshole about it to an American general.

Why make a Superman movie that insists you be terrified and resentful of the stand-offish alien Superman?  Why make a Superman movie in which he NEVER DOES ANYTHING HEROIC?!?!

(BIG SPOILER: move the cursor over the text:  The bad guys are defeated by human beings, Superman is just there to destroy Metropolis).

The mind reels.

Other than THAT, it’s a good movie.  Like THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL meets GODZILLA….only Superman is both Gort and Godzilla in that scenario.


Ty the Guy OUT!

Your BONUS moment involves the story of how I got the pants.

Maternal Bun Toons! YAY!

You can read this Bun Toon AFTER you’ve cleaned your room.

Sorry the Toon is a little late, I got a good night’s sleep, and that meant I started a teeny bit tardy.  But it’s caused me to create the Bun Toon Code.

I Bun Toon through thick and thin, even if I’m sleeping in.

At any rate, this weekend brings us  MOTHRA’S DAY, a day celebrating both Japanese Movie Monsters and typographical errors.  It’s also a return of that annual feeling of guilt that we haven’t phoned our MOTHERS for a while, and to celebrate that pang of regret, I present…

Now, go call your mother,  you heartless web-surfers.  At least do it on Sunday.  And try not to borrow money or ask her to do laundry while you’re on the phone.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS Comic Book Mother Moment, brought to you by the tasteful and sensitive people at P.E.T.A.

Isn’t Pamela Anderson supposed to be naked on everything P.E.T.A. does? I’m confused…

No, I’m not leaving the bonus moment there.  Here’s another Mother Based Comic Book Cover that will leave everyone feeling warmer and fuzzier.

Whew! At least that’s wholesome.
