warning:  satire ahead.  use caution.

It’s nice to see things finally changing in the world of comics.


At least we won’t be having this discussion again for another two or three weeks.


Because I have to:

Oh yes, it's real.

Oh yes, it’s real.

So many important lessons for Lois to learn.

Oddly enough, this comic is not a collector's item.

Sex and Fanboys Bun Toons! Woah!

What's the difference between being sexy and sexist?

What’s the difference between being sexy and sexist?

There’s a T-Shirt design that’s been going around the ‘net (and a convention or two) for a while… one that seems intent on offending women fans at conventions.

I’m all about the rebuttal…Click on any of these images and they will take you to a full sized image, large enough to print out and turn into a T-Shirt transfer.  Free to all…

bitter misogynist

Clearly Not Filling the Cup

Of course, retaliation just makes everyone ramp up the rhetoric and all of a sudden we have a war on our hands.  So don’t wear these in public after all…

I’ve just never understood the Boys-Only club mentality of fandom.  Why on EARTH wouldn’t anyone want more fans for their favorite thing?  It means sequels get made to stuff fans like if there’s more fans.  And could someone remind me why meeting a woman who shares your interests is instantly threatening to some men?

I’ve heard it said that men are afraid of women because women might laugh at them and women are afraid of men because men might assault them physically and kill them.    So the distrust is a level playing field…

Ty the PERSON, Out!

Just in case you think this comic book misogyny is something remotely new…

Do I have to go on…?

Female Creators Bun Toons. YAY!

No, that's not me in drag.

If there’s one thing I know about women  (or shorties and hunnies, as they prefer to be called), it’s that they are the gender who can sit naked in a wicker chair.

But seriously, folks…women in comics, both as creators and characters, have been the main conversation around the blogs and cons lately.   A cosplayer  known as “Batgirl of San Diego” stood up and asked where the female writers and artists were at the ALL NEW DC Comicon panels this year, and made enough noise that co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan Didio eventually heard her a month later.  They even issued a formal response on the DCU Blog last week actually called “We Hear You.”

I am woman, hear me roar - but give it a while to sink in.

In other lady funnybook news, a woman’s comics anthology called “WOMANTHOLOGY” tried to raise 25 thousand dollars on Kickstarter this month, and accidentally raised over a hundred thousand bucks in a few days.  The can of worms this bucket of cash has opened is too complex to go into here, but it’s more proof that August is lady funnybook month.

This Just In:  A comic store in Toronto called Paradise Comics is holding an all-female creators in-store signing next weekend (Aug. 20th) called “Girls Day Out”, the first store signing my wife’s invited to, that I’m not.  Estrogen August Marches On!

I’m no fool, I spot the trend –  and I heartily support the whole thing.  So  today, I’m joining up and taking one for the team…stepping aside, offering up my audience, putting my blog where my mouth is, and handing over the keys to Bun Toons this weekend to a wonderful shortie-hunny/cartoonist named Eden Bachelder.  DC might not be hiring enough women, but I sure as hell am. Take it away Eden…

Eden. Honorary Bunny this week.

Eden’s pretty fond of the Phantom characters, so that’s where her tooning heart went.  You can see more of Eden’s lovely paintings and illustrations at www.edenbachelder.com and you can see more of my straight white male oppressor Bun Toons next week.  But let her know what you thought of this, either in the comments below, or on her website.   I’m all for women creators, and by taking the week off,  it was clearly the least I could do.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your Girl Comics Bonus Moments.  You’ve come a fairly short distance, baby.

This is a Marvel Comic from the late Golden Age. You got to give them credit for a kick-ass heroine on the cover. No women crying revenge after a boyfriend dumps them...

Okay, forget what I said.


I chose issue #1 of this series because #2 is as NSFW as it gets.

For every Bun Toon ever, click the bunny where the male genitalia SHOULD be, but disturbingly isn't.
