A moment of reflection, please…

Next weekend, when Diana’s adventure opens, and we find out if hope triumphs over experience, I’ll be in Niagara Falls for a convention, but I’ll try to get out to the movies and report back as soon as I can.

I figure after thirty-eight bombs in a row, Warner Brothers is due for a good one.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I have a TEEENY bit of connection to this new Wonder Woman movie, I did a quick promotional film for the Cineplex chain, here in Canada.  Unfortunate movie goers have been trapped in a theatre with my face fifty feet high, for the last month or so…this is what they were forced to watch.

And now, your BONUS Bun Toon for the week.

Waller to Waller Coverage Bun Toon! Yay!


Pleasant dreams, all you residents of Belle Reve.

I’m hoping you plucky internet adventurers are willing to come along for this ride without me having to plant explosives in your neck.

I’m still going to plant those explosives, but I’m hoping you won’t NEED them.

Believe it or not, the movie is entertaining.  It’s dumb as a bag of rock salt, and rarely funny (though Harley manages one or two moments) but it does grudgingly allow for a bit of fun in between the rain storms and music video montages.  Viola Davis is good as Amanda Waller, even though the script doesn’t get Waller right.  Will Smith Will-Smiths his way through Deadshot with all the Will-Smithiness you’d want from him…and the BIG surprise is how close-to-the-originals the director gets the small time DC characters.  The movie is good for DC fans, if not necessarily the general public, because it’s certainly better than Green Lantern, Man of Steel, Constantine (the movie), Batman v Superman, Dark Knight Rises, Watchmen, Steel, Superman Returns and Jonah Hex.  That’s faint praise, I realise, since those movies were consistently awful.

But Suicide Squad isn’t awful.

Other than Christopher Nolan, we haven’t had a “not awful” DC movie in decades.

So I guess it’s a win?

Ty the Guy OUT!

I had a brief visit with Amanda Waller some years ago when I was drawing Justice League…

Joker, Killer Croc, and the rest of the Gotham City support stars that show up in Suicide Squad were all a big part of my time as a Batman writer and artist.  Here’s a fun Harley Quinn Snow Globe I designed for DC Direct some time back.  When you shake the globe, the money floats around Harley…

I wanted the globe filled with “puddin”, but was told it would make it hard to see Harley inside.
