I've recently succumbed to the lure of comixology. However, the mix of printed and digital copies threatens to balls-up any re-reads I might have planned, so I reckon a torrent full of issues is somewhere in my future...

A big problem with comics as a medium is that it is difficult to render proper war as anything resembling such and keep any sort of forward momentum. Seeing as we join the story with Infiltration where the war is pretty much drawing its last breath, the playground scrap dynamics we've seen are sort...

He does seem to know an awful lot about the DJD, though... Regarding the scale of the war, there's that brilliant bit (possibly in Chaos Theory, or maybe the Scavengers arc - dunno, just got up!) where Prime and Megatron are described as sitting in the centre of vast computers, commanding millions o...

Again, for an issue so f*cking hyped about the carnage and how it's going to make us "cry" by being so graphic, it's shocking how the best scene is of Megatron and Ravage enclosed in a closet.
This is a good thing.

I'm still going with Vos for Agent 113 - he can remove his face, he speaks an unintelligible dialect (both excellent ways to maintain cover) and he turns into a rifle - perfect for shooting messages into insignias.

Plus, we know now that this is at least the second robot to bear the name Vos...

I think in this age of digital issues and frequent comixology discounts* it's not too much to expect that new readers can find some way to catch up. Structuring the storylines into television-like "seasons" also helps matters, providing a jumping-on point for new readers. Like Auntie Slag says, it's...

This improbability drive thing... is it a reference to one of the Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy books? I remembered something about a spacedrive propelled by improbability. Like Warcry I think it's kind of stupid. James said on Twitter he's never read it... Not a big fan of wasting... four? Five? Ho...

Oh, and my favourite line has to be Pipes at the beginning: "Go on, Drift, guess. I bet you can't. I bet you're rubbish."

Enjoyed the issue but I was quite drunk, so it will require a re-read. I'm happy to get confirmation of what I suspected regarding Forged/Constructed Cold Transformers. Art wasn't too much of a problem for me and James continues to use the comic form brilliantly.

James does sort of tease us about his death 'fake-outs' with Ambulon's death - no, he can't be fixed after all, but he makes a bloody good gun!

Which page? I haven't seen the film in years so maybe I'm misremembering the sequence you mean.

I also forgot Roger Allam was in this. He's surely the best thing in it, not 'anything-for-a-few-bob' Fry? :D

It's already been established that Cybertronians are pretty hard to kill, though - hence the Relinquishment Clinics where Chromedome and Rewind met. I didn't really see any of those as 'fake-outs' per se (except perhaps Rung's) since we've seen Transformers survive that sort of thing many times. And...

I'm a big fan of that old Diaclone aesthetic, which is a clear sign of my advancing years. I have this fantasy that one day Hasbro will release Impactor, but done Diaclone-stylee.

In the mean time, there's these chaps: https://www.fpcore.com/product/retro-fu ... d-set-of-5

Don't think so - wasn't Fry's character a replacement for 'Gordon' from the book - Evey's charming bit of rough!

Presumably shanix are non-replicatable currency akin to latinum then. Which doesn't explain why Autobots don't leverage that resource more in wartime... I'd say more like bitcoin, with a block-chain to prevent fraud, rather than a physical currency. This is surely James's next step, after giving us...
