The Roadbuster issue/plot was worth the price of admission. One of the best things in the IDW era. I could do with losing the font used for Carnivac if he ever shows up again. Impactor is a good character. The whole setup with Tarantulas and the backstory to the main plot was excellent. I didn't car...

Everyone is on the money in their general assessments, I think, good reading as usual. I just wanted to post to throw in a couple of (maybe) additions to points. Whirl started setting the clocks the minute he turned his back on the others (ooh, how literal), ie he knew he was running the risk of bei...

I think it was here I read some discussion about the new direction of Transbridge Omegalock, as TFS Express. Just thought I'd pop in to say that I've ended up using TFS more then Kapow this year, basically because they got specific things in and out to me quicker, and they have worked out somewhat t...

I think you're getting a bit hung up on the choice of music. Heh, nah. The Singles Club might very well be on my personal top 10, though. I'm not sure when it was...before the end of MTMTE season 1 at any rate...I emailed Gillen to ask him if he was reading it, coz it's basically completely up his ...

I was just overjoyed to see Saint Etienne namechecked in an official Transformers comic. Ditto. Fun. post How Soon Is Now is played, yes. I'm sorry you didn't like the indie tunes and would have preferred something different. You should consider reading a comic called Phonogram. The second series/T...

I don't know, I wouldn't say "Generic" so much as "Actually popular". I do not like your alternate functionist reality where The Smiths are not actually popular. The Transformers are having an indie night. That's characterful enough. The only thing that could be better is if Blaster played Taylor S...

It's not an 80s playlist, it's an indie club playlist. Generic 80s tunes would be just as bad as generic tunes of Right Now. If there have to be songs in the comic that aren't used as direct plot elements then I would rather they be from the author's mixtape than just something utterly boring. The E...

I imagine the DJ at the party is playing Earth tunes because the host of said party just binged on Earth culture, after one of his employees convinced him to watch the entire DVD boxset. I think on balance I prefer the music choices to be songs that the author identifies with, rather than 'safe' dan...

Yeah, I'm kinda leaning towards it being a fake-out of some kind too. The presence of Cassie Nova in her original look and someone who looks like Negasonic bloody Teenage Warhead, of all people, raise eyebrows. And who could cloaky be? One of the Masterminds? Who's Black Queen nowadays? Not that it ...

I think the 'twins of evil' one exists, I'm pretty sure I might even have it somewhere, but I can't confirm the contents from memory. I think it did have a couple of bits of Time Wars and Cold Comfort and Joy in it. Can't recall which bits of Time Wars, though.

Never heard of the second, sorry.
