Four More Panels! YAY!

rust bunny logo

Because five panels is exhausting.

There’s fightin’ a brewin’ in the world of comics, and you can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys without a scorecard.  As always, the six foot rabbit in the room is the only one willing to help out.  So here’s…

civil war four panels

I’m likely to actually go and see this Civil War movie tomorrow, and I’ll let everyone know how it went when I get back, but until then, I’m fairly sure my judgement is a safe bet.

Ty the Guy OUT!


civil war comic

If you’re one of the millions of fans who never read the original series the movie is based on:  It was a fight between factions of the Marvel Universe, some of whom saw the covers as half full, where others saw the covers half empty.

Civil_War_7

It took until the Black Giant Man was killed before everyone agreed that the covers were simply half finished, and we all went back to work drawing the bottom of things again.  Of course, drawing bottoms is what launched Frank Cho’s career.

 

If you’re interested in the comic story that STARTED all the fighting between factions of the mythical world, look no further than here:

hulk v buddha

For some reason, my Hulk v The Buddha comic strip was all over facebook last week, and I thought I’d repost it here so folks could at least know where Civil War started.  (The Buddha was an original Avenger before Ant-Man, back in the fifties, with 3-D Man and Venus, look it up).

Deadpool for Beginners Bun Toon! YAY!

Lesson one:  Put on a bullet proof vest.

The big event is coming –

-and I do NOT mean the Superbowl, which I understand is some time this weekend.

I’m talking about Deadpool (the “regenerating degenerate”, the “merc with a mouth” and Marvel’s most popular non-clawed mutant) and his movie premiere.

To those of us in the funnybook biz, Wade Wilson is well known…but outside of the eight people who stayed awake for his last big screen appearance, Deadpool is an unknown, a mystery, a cipher wrapped in an enigma.

That’s why the Bun Toon is here:

I’ll see you guys on opening day.  Except for you kiddies…this one’s not for YOU.

Ty the Guy OUT!

—————————————————————–

I’ve done my little part to keep Deadpool from being TOO successful.  Here’s a page I drew from DEADPOOL #250 (death of Deadpool special) last year.

death of deadpool cover

this is the cover, if you can’t live without the issue.  It’s actually a really fun special!

Evil Bun Toons! Bwah hah hah!

There’s nothing quite so evil as a cartoon rabbit.

There goes my next three assignments from Marvel.  I live like a rebel.

Of course, the only place Donald Trump BELONGS is in the funny papers.

Four Characters, Four Panels Bun Toons! YAY!

Fourth time is not the charm.

Fourth time is not the charm.

Jon Stewart retired this week, and Don Trump won the Republican debate.  But neither event can hold a candle to this week’s real disaster…

FF IN FOUR PANELS

There is so much wrong with this movie that it defies critique.   At its heart, it’s a movie about brilliant creative people, written and directed by slow-witted dullards who understood nothing of the source material.

I tend to root for comic book movies, and it’s very rare for one to disappoint as much as this one did.  Green Lantern and Jonah Hex are the only other two that got down to this level of pure, unfiltered awfulness like the new FF movie did.  If you’ve seen either of those previous bombs, you know where we are.

Sigh.

A terrible adaptation encrappens us all.

Ty the Guy OUT!

—————————————————————————————————-

Without question, this is STILL the best Fantastic Four movie:

incredibles

It even made a pretty good comic book, drawn by my buddy Marcio Takara!

Now, if Pixar ever made a live action Incredibles movie, we might have something resembling a proper FF picture.

Sigh.

Teeny Tiny Bun Toons! YAY!

It's not the size of the Bun Toon that matters...

It’s not the size of the Bun Toon that matters…

Again, Marvel opens up a movie with a character the general public knows next to nothing about.

Again, the humble Bunny is here to help the novice sort it all out…

ant man four panels

I’m actually DYING to see this one.  I have a fondness for ANT-MAN that’s almost unnatural…

Ty the Guy OUT!

———————————————————————————————–

During the period of time I was writing an Avengers animated comic called “Avengers United They Stand”, Hank Pym/Ant-Man was the only original Avenger on the team every month…  So I featured him as a heroic, smart, funny, charming and all-around cool guy, leading the squad…

I drew the covers too, this is one of mine.

Of course, the series was cancelled after eight issues.

Sigh.

No one loves the comic book Hank Pym.

Ty Cannot Come to the Bun Toon Today!

If only I had the time to draw this well today...

If only I had the time to draw this well today…

With all the comic book tsuris that happened this week (Batgirl covers and all), I had lots to say in bunny form, but alas, my opinions are restricted to my mouth today, as I am attending a Comic Convention in Toronto, and am out of the house by 8.30 this morning.

Sheesh!

logo-trans

I’m having a great time (except for the lack of sleep) so come on down and say “hi”, and if I’m functioning and awake, I’ll do you a sketch, and mouth off about something pithy.

miracle man 2015

Yesterday I did this Miracle Man for a fan…literally HOURS after re-reading the 16 issue “Original Writer” reprints from Marvel earlier in the day. Talk about timing….

But if I’m muttering and snarly, I need sleep and might be about to pass away from exhaustion.  Then it’s best to ask for THIS character, as I can see her anyway…

Another Friday sketch from Toronto.

Ah, I’m kidding.  I’m still happiest drawing Batman.  I know what he looks like without reference.

YEEEHaaw! Bun Toons! YAY!

Get along little Bunnies.

Get along little Bunnies.

I’m happy to hear that Marvel is going back to the Western genre with the “Sheriff Steve Rogers” mini-series in a couple of months.  I’m looking forward to it.

But if Marvel is planning on a Weird Western storyline, they should use the REAL characters from American history of the period.   For instance, who can forget these…

Famous Western Mystics

In my youth, I met a very old man claiming to be the Two Ball Kid, but it turned out to be disappointing for different reasons.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Marvel Kirby Western Comics are the single greatest genre in the English Language.

Seriously.

Behold…

Who needs a noon-time railway train filled with owlhoots when there's Giant Monsters in Midnight Valley?

The story behind this issue's cover is actually odder than you think it's going to be.

(I draw these Bun Toons while watching AMC’s All Western programming on Saturday mornings.  It was only a matter of time before I did something along these lines.)
