Memorial Weekend Bun Toons! YAY!

A moment of reflection, please…

memorial day hope

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.

THE SCISSORS OF FATE part 2

jumping-bunny-toons

An epic for our times.

I know the cliffhanger from LAST week’s BUN TOON was difficult to have to wait for, and this should have been up yesterday, but I had family in from out of town, and family comes first.  If I learned anything from this experience, it’s HOLD ON TO FAMILY.

If you missed it, here’s part one.

Now on to part TWO of our thrill-ride adventure.

part-2

At the time it all made perfect sense. 2016 had so much loss in it, and there had to be a line drawn in the sand…a hill worth dying on.

To be continued…

Scissors have always played an important part of the world of comics.

THESE Wonder Woman scissors still adorn my studio wall, given to me as a gift some years ago.  These scissors I shall NEVER let go.


Happy Birthdays DC Bun Toons! YAY!

00 bunny worried light green.jpg

I knew it was coming and I still didn’t bake a cake.

With an entire week passed and no iconic heroes passing away, perhaps it’s time to reflect on the little baby comic books left in my crib recently…

after birth

Every now and then, I’m reminded that Superman means a lot to me.  He’s had his ass kicked in the movies and the New 52….but DARE I be hopeful about the Rebirth Kal-el?  Dare I?  I already like the Convergence Superman, and in theory….

Ty the Guy OUT!


If you’re new to the whole concept of the DC reboot, let me give you a crash course:

convergence

This was the last one.  All the Batmans and Supermans and Aquamans had to fight each other.  It made no sense, really.

dcyou

This wasn’t a reboot so much as they simply changed everything about all the characters.  And it lasted maybe six months anyway.

dc new fifty two

The Now-Old New-Fifty-Two.  A reboot that rose from the flames of a temporary reboot called “Flashpoint”.

flashpoint

I think this had something to do with Flash travelling through time and forgetting to keep the sports almanac from Biff, but who can remember this many reboots ago?

zero hour

I’m pretty sure there were a couple of Crisis Events between this and Flashpoint, but how many Crisis covers can you look at?

crisis

The grandfather of all reboots.  The first, the biggest, the brightest, the one everyone compares all reboots to…

flash showcase

Except for this one, which was actually the first, sort of.  Depends on if you count the 50s Timely/Atlas Human Torch reboot.

Up, Up and Out of Here Bun Toons! YAY!

Superman is to Kryptonite, as Bunny is to….?

SUPERMAN DIES AGAIN

It really did strike me as odd how little attention was paid to the latest death of the Man of Steel.  I suppose since he (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER) died in the movie version, this is technically his THIRD big death, and the second one this year, which does add a sense of the familiar every time he checks out.

As someone who’s died a couple of times myself, I know how dull the third one can be.  Personally, I slept through it.

When I was a kid, my father’s two heroes were Gandhi and Muhammad Ali.  My dad was an amateur boxer in his youth, so I think he might have had a slight preference for Ali, but those are two good choices.

Mine were Batman and Superman, because they were the first ones I read about.  Then I read about Ali and what he’d done during the Viet Nam war.

Then he joined my Justice League.

The Greatest.

I promise, no complaining about the new Zack Snyder movie, except for this bit here.

Another honest-to-god-true-life-adventure.  Ah, the life I lead…

Torch passing

I suppose my other children are pretty cool, too.  No, really.

As long time readers of this blog might recall, my eldest son, Kellam once went out on Halloween as BLUE SUPERMAN!  blue-superman-photo

Perhaps the only Blue Superman ever on Halloween.  Not a single house knew who he was.

Below is a conversation I had with Taylor about the Archie characters.  It’s an ongoing education with my brood.

father-son-talk-websize

And, of course, me and the lad aren’t the only ones with a Christopher Reeve man-crush.

Jerry Seinfeld’s man-crush on the big blue boy scout is so strong, a few years back, American Express actually hired me to draw Superman and Jerry palling around together.  No, really.

I think Superman is tickling Jerry here.  What was I thinking when I drew this?

Bun Toon V Hollywood: Darn the Justice

rust bunny logo

You knew the risks going in.

Who says movie makers don’t listen to the people?

 

BATMAN v superman web

Wonder Woman is cool.  She’s the only thing in the movie that makes you smile, or sit up, or discover yourself enjoying something.  I will greatly look forward to the Wonder Woman movie if it’s anything like the twenty-three seconds of air-time she gets in this one.

It might have been a stronger movie if they hadn’t dedicated so much of the film to advertising their next six movies and instead spent time building the characters, motivations and relationships of THIS one.

Sigh.

I miss the cinematic triumphs of Green Lantern and Jonah Hex.

You are.  Yes you are.

Movie Magic Bun Toons! YAY!

I’m ready for my close up, Mr. Warner Brothers…

We’re in the final days of counting down before the big, big DC Smash-Em-Up Justice League movie-palooza hits the theatres.   As an expert on the characters, let me introduce you to the new kids on the blockbuster…

big budget superfriends

Wonder Twin Power…shape of a….

I can’t say it in a family webtoon.

See you at the movies, gang!

It’s hardly the first time the Super-Friends have behaved like a bag of crotch rockets.  Here’s how they treated their beloved team mates Wendy and Marvin when they found NEW friends.

superfriends

No joke.  This was the last appearance of Wendy and Marvin.  They were never heard from again.  I think they became homeless and had to eat the dog.
