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…

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!

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.)

Million Dollar Idea Bun Toons! YAY!

A few minutes ago, in a galaxy fairly near my basement.

A few minutes ago, in a galaxy fairly near my basement.

Oh My God.

Did you see the sales figures on the new Marvel Star Wars comics?  The books are selling like they were instalments of the film series.  We’re talking more than A MILLION COPIES in print already, and the new launches are only a few weeks old.  They’re already the best selling comics of this century.

So…since I do, in fact, work at Marvel comics (check out my work in an  upcoming issue of Deadpool #250!), I thought I’d grab a little of that LucasFilm glory and submit a few ideas for graphic novels.

Obviously Han Solo and Bobba Fett are taken, you have to look for the less obvious characters if you want a chance at getting your pitch through…

Hey, there’s no shame in the Lando and Iron Fist joke.  We were all thinking it.

Absolutely everyone who is my age remembers when this comic came out...months before the movie was released, giving away huge plot spoilers and secrets...ah, happy times.

Titans are clashing!  Titans, I tell you!

Titans are clashing! Titans, I tell you!

So apparently there’s something about a new Secret Wars Marvel project, and something about ret-conning some Marvel history when it all shakes out.

Clay pigeons loaded…

Off we go.

Straw Men have been popular in comics for quite a while now…

I’ve not read this series, but that cover is rock solid.

Even Marvel Comics is familiar with publishing straw men.

Everybody’s Happy Now Bun Toons! YAY!

Isn't it nicer when everyone is happy?  Sigh...

Hey, it’s in the news, it’s about comics, I have to make a comment.

There…I told you everyone was happy.

The bonus moment is just as happy.  It was from Christmas a couple of years ago, and Christmas is always happy.

support the tropesPS:  If you link back to this Bun Toon, try not to give away that it’s all about Jack, that’s sort of the punchline both times..
