All the Ore 13, and the facsimilies and the Magnifigance (which is probably the big one to sort out ASAP, till they get rid of it the Autobots are going to seem like morons every time they don't win) were in New York together at the same time? Well the facsimiles were obviously all living in the pa...

In short: No. What's especially annoying is that of all the various lose ends needing tying up (Ore 13, the next President as a facsimile, Skywatch, what the EvilU did next, Soundwave's lobotomy etc.) Loose ends? Obviously those all got blown up by the Decepticons in their takeover of Earth otherwi...

If you'd like to point out where my criticism of Maximum Dinobots is unwarranted, be my guest. I do like the way that rather than countering any of it you just vaguely implied that I'm somehow impossible to please. Which obviously I am, as my love for Transformers comics totally isn't on the record...

Oh man, now I get it! It's like a really dumb version of Catch-22. I need to go and check the issues for a cloud that, like Clevinger, consumed Jazz one fine day, to the bafflement of all. Maybe it was in Hunter's contract to appear happy at least once in the series. Can't for the life of me imagin...

Yes, goddamn, that whole Jazz arc was downright bizarre. My conversation with the series on that point went like this: Jazz is the new boss everybody! He was in black ops and he can flip Springer with judo! Alright, that's a bit lame, but I'll bite - why's Prowl taking the back seat and how come Ja...

I never posted in this forum before, but I've got to ask: Isn't this the same quote that megatron and omega supreme repeat 2 or 3 times each in All Hail Megatron, just slightly different? "Megatron, there's an incoming jet!" "I AM MEGATRON!" "Megatron, do you need protection?" "I AM MEGATRON!" "Ome...

No because Furman established that the relationship between Sunstreaker and Sideswipe was like that back in his Revelations Spotlight. All McCarthy did was create a dsialogue that fit perfectly into that rlationship. As I remember it, Revelation set up that Sideswipe had a big ol' chip on his shoul...

And my inner six year-old is really digging these.
I'm willing to revise the estimate to 5-6 years old.

And look, I'm helping! Megatron shoes.

There are a whole lot of better comics out there than most Transformers stuff, even at its peak. I mean, just because people like Greg Land and Rob Liefield exist isn't a reason to give up living... I'm talking more about the negative light in which most people see comic books, any comic books, as ...

I wouldn't be too surprised if it's a roundabout type of negotiation in order to command a higher fee for the third movie. This: Bay, who is known for his explosive action sequences, is sick of receiving negative reviews from critics who dislike his movie-making style and is determined to move away ...

I agree, but only because this is pretty obvious. I realize I'm getting redundant, but: All the Autobot characters written by mccarthy are uncool guys (Blurr the retarted speedster, Perceptor, Sunstreaker, and now Cliffjumper) who end up being traumatized and become kewl guntoting "macho macho mech...

I wish I could think of something even slightly obscure; only "Highway 61 Revisited" and "London Calling" come to mind as having sold me from the first note.

I'd say the claim that 90% of the American comic buying public are stupid is a good one - this is why Jeph Loeb sells books and genuinely talented writers keep getting cancelled. This is why DC and Marvel have abandoned storytelling in favour of EVENTS. This is why IDW seem to have stemmed the nose...

The ongoing being fun to read would be a start.

TFArchive always seemed neutral on the IDW comics though--I think AHM just inspired some retroactive appreciation.

Yes, because nothing draws in casual readers like crappy cliched stories with characters that have all the depth of a paddling pool. It's pretty evident that a number of fans look to the comics to see their toys walking and talking and fighting more than anything. Story and depth come second, if at...
