Martian Bun Toons! YAY!

One of these days, Alice. Bang, Zoom! To Barsoom!

Sorry I haven’t been posting much these last weeks.  Blame the day job (working on some Spider-Man), but I’ll never miss a Bun Toon Day, unless I’m too sick to hold a pencil.

Today, we examine the weird world that is my life.  Every word of today’s comic is completely true.

It’s not just about the lack of clothing, by the way.  I’ve been a ERB Martian fan since I was a kid.  I’ve had a Tars Tarkas figure looking down over my drawing table for decades, and went out as John Carter for Hallowe’en when I was 18.

And just so there’s no odd questions lingering out there, I never had a crush on my Mother-In-Law, but she is a heck of wonderful person, and she did raise some amazing kids, one of whom I married.  I currently have a crush on my wife.

I’m begging you, Disney.  DON’T SCREW UP THIS MOVIE!

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS moments.  I wouldn’t want to deprive you of a little Dejah Thoris art…

Art by Murphy Anderson. It made me realize I DIDN'T have a crush on Gwen Stacy after all. (I thought I did until I read this comic).

And here’s the November painting by Frank Frazetta…one of a number of paintings he did of John Carter and his world.

Dig that wounded Thark, my friends.

I encourage you guys to seek out the OTHER Barsoomian paintings by Frank Frazetta.  There isn’t one that isn’t mind bogglingly gorgeous.  That one up there isn’t even my favourite Frank/Martian painting, but it’s the first one I saw.
