Agh! Uk! Ut! Ow! Bun Toons!

Smile, though your guts are breaking, smile, even though you’re aching…

I wasn’t around Bun Tooning last week because of the chronic, you know what I’m saying?  And by chronic, I mean chronic and ongoing kidney stone problems.  No details, I don’t want to bore you with the icky stuff, but it’s why I wasn’t here last week.

All real quotes.  My wife overheard the comment in the bed next to mine in emergency last week.  Apparently I was getting a little too detailed about my belief system while the universe took shots at my innards, and it put someone off that I wasn’t just saying “Ow!”.

I ended up in a semi-private room with a nice Catholic man named Rick who didn’t deserve the tsuris, so I learned to stay quiet about the Bible as the meds wore off.   I can be good.

Fingers crossed, my doctors think I can be free of these things for the rest of my life in a couple of months.   Then I’ll be reduced to only cursing bad movies and bad drivers, but I’ll keep those blasphemies to myself.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I know it’s because of SELMA BLOTTE (the Kidney Lady from Howard the Duck) that all this happened to me.   I wrote her into ONE Howard story in a Civil War special, just a single panel cameo, for god’s sake, and she took it wrong.

I have the power of life and death over you!

I’m glad I never wrote a scene with Appendix Bursting Man or Lung Disease Boy (two of the lesser members of the Legion of Substitute Heroes), or I’d never be free of the hospital.

The LAST Medical Bun Toon! YAY!

Lord, give me strength

Lord, give me strength

I’ve been away from the Bun Toon for a couple of weeks because of my awful medical problems…

You don’t want to know about those weeks and those problems.

But I’m going to tell you anyway…

Hopefully, for the LAST time.


Sigh…it all started with Eartha Kitt playing Catwoman, and suddenly, just forty five years later, it’s still going.  Oh, racist fandom collected, will ye never learn?

Ty the Guy OUT!

And now…for the FINAL, LAST, ULTIMATE and DONE appearance of the Kidney Lady from Howard the Duck.


This whole kidney episode was some sort of punishment for my writing Howard the Duck for a while….AND never using the Kidney Lady in any of my scripts.   So SHE CAME AND GOT ME!!

Kidney Bun Toons. OW OW OW!

Apparently it’s as painful as childbirth…but I can’t believe childbirth is THAT painful.

So, as I head for bed last night, I realize I’m a couple of days late with a Spider-Man job, and it’s actually immoral for me to work on a Bun Toon the next morning until I finish the job on my drawing table.  But…about ten minutes after I head for bed, I get a little pain in my side…which changes some of my plans for the weekend, all on its own.

This Bun Toon was drawn in the Emergency Room with paper a nurse found for me.  Sorry if it’s difficult to read.



As of this morning at about 6:00 am, I passed the stone.


They’re right.  It’s WAY more painful than giving birth to a child.  At least the child gets you birthday presents once they reach the age of ten.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Of course, this being comics and kidneys, there’s only ONE possible Bonus Moment:

Comics’ greatest Kidney Hero, from Howard the Duck.
