This has nothing to do with Paul Simon, sorry.
Continuing from last week’s Bun Toon about the day I saw a UFO.

There is no way to describe how utterly WEIRD it was when I first saw this thing…to quote Douglas Adams, “…it hung in the sky in exactly the way that bricks don’t.” As I said, it was like a really lousy special effect. As though I was seeing something badly glued onto a photo of the sky, rather than something in the natural world. That’s why I had to ask other people if they saw it too…it didn’t seem real.
More to the story next week…it gets odder.
Ty the Guy OUT!
This painted cover comes close to recreating my experience, only there was just one of the objects, and it wasn’t red, and it didn’t fire anything at me, and it didn’t glow. And I was with my family and I didn’t have my car until later, and it wasn’t on a lonely road or anything like that. Otherwise, it’s uncanny.
If you’re in the TORONTO area, I will be at a Release Party for the first collection of BATMAN ’66 issues, today…. Saturday April 5 at The Comic Book Lounge + Gallery, from 7-11pm.
na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN!
The volume reprints my first issue with Penguin and Mister Freeze, as well as a bunch of other swell stories. We encourage cosplayers and Bat-fans tonight, but please, there is a sixties or Batman theme, no naked John Carters or Conans, thank you.
Come get yer copy signed by one of the artists, and maybe he’ll talk to you.
In case you didn’t see the first part of the UFO story…this is the set-up
A link to the Bun Toon library of hundreds of other stories, most of which will not mention UFOs.
