Re: Dreamwave G1 read-through

Lee's art tried to combine Sunbow control art with the toys, sometimes with mixed results. (The sequence with Octane's head is one more reason that Slag is one of my favorite characters.)

Re: Comics are Awesome III

If you do not like King, you ain't gonna like Tamaki. I liked "the Visions". But, I am not specifically a fan of King. I dropped the "Son of Kal El" when it got pulled in to a cross-over that required me to buy other stuff not written by Tom Taylor. Sticking with "Nightwing" for now. I have to first...

Re: Transformers: Legacy

The whole wave is an easy skip for me. I can appreciate the retro sensibilities of the Targetmaster. But, the gun-bot having no articulation is unacceptable. Skullgrin is everything I have not liked about Hasbro using the Pretender characters for the last decade. (Why the hell are they not making ac...

Re: Dreamwave G1 read-through

I like McDonough's writing.

But, I wanted more from Sarracini. (I want not completely done with Furman 20 years ago. But, I was not happy with hoe DreamWave sidelined Sarracini so quickly on "Armada".

issue 3

The 3rd issue of "Shattered Glass II" is also the 3rd from final issue of IDW's run with the license. Much like the previous 2 issues (and the previous "Shattered Glass"), this issue rests on the sort of base-level competence that has been lacking at IDW for most of the last 10 years (since "Dark Cy...

Re: Video Games are awesome

"Mom tossed our Nintendo" is the 80s/90s update of "mom tossed by comic books and baseball cards". Damn, just damn.


I loved "Manhattan Project". I actually have that and the first 2 on a bootleg system.

Re: Dreamwave G1 read-through

Shame on me for not catching that reference years ago.



The Prowl thing ties in to the idea that took root among some fans that Prowl is a jerk (going back to G1, when Prowl would call out Grimlock for being stupid).

Re: Dreamwave G1 read-through

Nice "Dark Knight Returns" reference there, Don.
Refresh my memory. (I like to think I would recall this. But, I cannot.)


As much as I liked IDW's Prowl, I never understood why some elements of the fandom decided he was a bad guy years before "All Hail Megatron".

Re: Transformers: Legacy

Tranatulas' robot-crotch is supposed to be the spider-mode face. That was the idea of the original toy and the cartoon. The number of eyes changing was the sort of cheat that was common in the beast-era. (The fact that the BW cartoon cheated so aggressively is why I am a little more forgiving of fac...

Re: Dreamwave G1 read-through

I reread "War Within" a few years back. Figueroa carried that book. Fun fact: In '02, I actively wanted to be out of comics. This was not the sort of idle "I might be out of comics" that we all go through. For a number of reasons, I made a decision that I would be out of comics by the end of that ye...
