And it's a pretty big one this week (both in terms of importance and length) as I hit the first issue I ever read:

It would of course have to be one of the more horribly sexist issues in the whole run.

Easter part of the story coming up then...

Arcee being threatened by a massive penis substitute
Not particularly, except insofar as almost any situation involving a "female" character and another character with a gun is. Not long after you've got Ghyrik standing dominant over and thrusting his crotch towards a prone Hot Rod's face -- it's not that there aren't things to deconstruct in either image, but if anything the visual goes out of its way to emphasise no robo-boobies. Or much sense of proportion, or concern with basic things like centring faction symbols.

Yeh, it's pretty hard to argue that anything Dan Reed did was done on purpose.

The cover is Wildman though.

It could be worse, if Furman had picked one of the more traditional Quints for the general Arcee would be being menaced by a tentacle.

You know, that Ghostbusters comment kinda makes me wonder if anyone out there has made a review of all the episodes or the comic to anywhere near this level of completion.

Talking IT'S CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it's that time of year again where Slag tells me off for making the questions too hard.

There's prizes again this year, including some unique ones related to The Book (the only proof copy and some prints being made by the mighty Mr. Turnbull) and some ones you might actually want (Lew Stringer books).

But to win you must pass my fiendish test! All answers in by the 8th of January. You should all take part to stop Ryan F steam-rolling it again:

If I win can I forego the prizes in return for you never mentioning your book again?

If you win.

If you don't win you have to watch Headmasters again. From the start. All the way through. Without the dub.

Alternately you could just not go in the thread marked as being about the book...

Holy hell. If I was to answer these off the top of my head I might be in with a chance with question 8.

What happened to normal questions like 'Name all the Seekers' or 'Spell Thunderwing' or something?

Do us a dumb quiz as well

[Edit] I DEFINITELY know the answer to Question 8. Ooh, that's a good one, I'm so happy. Score!

Well I know the answer to that and 4, so at least I got that going on for me.

Skyquake is winning at the moment. Do you people want Skyquake to think he's better than you? Look at him, sat there laughing at you all waving his penis in your faces. He must be stopped!

And now Skyquake has been cockslapped into second place with three days still to go.

Amazingly by a reader I don't know as well. Most of them I've met by now.

One question seems to have fooled everyone into giving the same wrong answer, anyone who has actually read Firebug could still win it.
