Woof! Bark! Arf! Bark! Bark! Bun Toons YAY!

00 bunny waving blue

The dogs are barking.  I think that means we’re due for an earthquake.

fenrir sings

Fenrir tends to like blues songs or Ringo Starr songs.  She’s absolutely devoted to “Octopus’ Garden” and “Yellow Submarine” and comes running to the piano as soon as she hears the opening notes.

The real trouble with this arrangement is that I have three cats who hang around the living room.

They’re not happy about this new dog thing, but none of them have even TRIED to take the instrumental solo verse when I play, so screw them.  The dog’s in the band.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Dogs and comic books go together like squirrels and nuts…which is to say one tries to eat the other….

But dogs are occasionally the comic book star.


This is a “Who’s Who in DC Comics” art entry from fairly early in my career.  Rex the Wonder Dog, originally drawn by Gil Kane, but drawn badly here by me.  Who doesn’t love wonder dogs?  Writer James Robinson bought this piece of original art from me because he too loves the wonder dogs.


This is some of the art from a series of Seinfeld/Superman ads for American Express that included Jerry’s dog cavorting with Krypto.  I got to do the artwork for the ads, but never got to meet Jerry’s dog even though Jerry’s dog got to meet Krypto.  There are no perks in cartooning like there are in sit-com stardom.

Sunday Funnies Bun Toons! YAY!


I think it’s Super-bowl Sunday….?

So let’s get this out of the way:


Okay.  Awareness of the big game has been acknowledged.  Go Fightin’ Yanks, or Walruses, or whatever mascots are involved.

While the rest of the culture is focused on the sport-ball, they might be missing this huge announcement:

future site

I mean, who isn’t enjoying all these DC “location” shows about places WITHOUT their iconic citizens?  After F.S.0.T.F.0.S. debuts, I’m waiting for “Light Breakfast:  The story of a B&B in a lighthouse, run by Aquaman’s father before he meets his mom.”

Or BATCAVE: 1812.  A cavern’s place in a forgotten war.


Ty the Guy OUT!

There have long been comic books that played this game, by the way…


To be fair, Superman was on the cover, and in a framing sequence in this one.


He was just on the cover of this one–nowhere to be found inside.


Supes didn’t even make the cover of this series, which followed the stories of Luthor and Perry White as younger men.  The new WB series is supposedly about Lois Lane and Luthor solving mysteries together….so SORT OF like this comic, only not really.


The original “Gotham” comic book….without the homicidal, overacting Penguin.


Heck….they even DID a Fortress of Solitude comic book in the 80s.



KRYPTON:  Coming soon to SyFy Channel this month.

No Kal-el.  No Jor-el.  No Lara.  Probably no Beppo.

All the News in Fits and Sprints Bun Toons! YAY!

If I wasn’t here you’d have to rely on the news cable stations.

There’s so much going on.  But what is the BIG STORY?


The red pants have been appearing regularly around here since 2011…


No kidding.  The Bunny wore them for quite a while, especially if the strip that week had something to do with DC or Superman…Here’s a toon praising the Grant Morrison run on Action Comics from 2012.




It can launch energy balls


…or fire off rockets


The little red pants were the only part of Superman to survive Doomsday.


Without them, the world would never have had this photo.


I’m proud to have worn them.

Ty the Guy OUT!

LAST week’s Bun Toon.  Click above, I’m still here.

Bun Toons Teaches Important Lessons! YAY!

A moment of sunshine and flowers first

Ah, what a delightful week it’s been.

People are asking questions….what can I do?  Where can I help?  What is the solution?

Well, I’m here to instruct.

how to punch a nazi

I’m encouraged by the anti-Nazi turnout in Boston today.  I’m encouraged the PayPal and Facebook and many other digital platforms have discovered a “No-Nazis” rule lately.  I’m encouraged that America is woke to racism now that a white woman is dead.

But we still have a few more Nazis to punch before they get the message.  I want those hate filled vermin to feel fear to leave their homes with “88” tattoos, or white power symbols.

No slope.  No slippery.

Punch a Nazi today.

Ty the Guy OUT!











Punching a Nazi is good exercise for the body and soul.

Memorial Weekend Bun Toons! YAY!

00sun toons logo small

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.

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.


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…



Ty the Guy OUT!


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:


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


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”.


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?


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.
