Agreed on all counts, this is solid stuff and agreeably similar to the strongest RID issues - slice-of-life, character-focused, even the first person narration is back. Needlenose has had an interesting arc simmering away since issue #1. He deservedly takes centre stage here. Brawl was good value an...

...so, for all the jabbing and jibing, I had to throw this one at ya folks. a spin on the Cheers theme, by a Raelien called "Where Ten can't even say your name". just a little more humor for the sake of what they were shooting for- since Swerve all but worshiped the sitcom concept. https://soundclo...

Forgettable is right. I'm having trouble recalling much about it a few days later. Something about sitting on a box?

He's a bit of a Rob Grant, isn't he? A couple of characters meet a very sticky end indeed in the finale. I liked Cubs in Toyland though - it was an interesting break from the Dark stuff, which I agree didn't quite work despite it being a neat idea. I think it did come out good. The series itself has...

Fables is over

Just polished off the very last book-sized issue of Fables. Thirteen years!

I'm a little emotional about it.

Cyclonus worked for me, mainly because visually it emphasised a more parental relationship with Tailgate, which is how I view them. It was actually a very good issue for Cyc, lots of good material and common sense without it actually being about him. Yeah, Cyclonus was the hero here. He even got to...

Windblade #5

I found this one pretty charming. It's definitely from the pen of someone who knows their way around a kid's TV show though I thought the art / scripting on the race sequence didn't really sell it. The designs of the racers and the traps were bland. I can imagine a fairly sparse script and an overwo...

But seeing how candid the podcasting people and...

Combiner Hunters special

This was released yesterday as well and no doubt we're all champing at the bit to say what we thought about it! Um, It's not bad! Arcee gets to say a few things and tick a few continuity boxes while some toyetic shennanigans happen to some nameless ladies. Chromia acts tough and Windblade gathers a ...

I'm going to come out as a straight-up lover of this issue. The meta stuff was exactly to my tastes and the central metaphor was sound - Swerve has locked himself away in his room binging on escapist TV shows. His literal projecting of a healthy self to work is a fantastic use of the holoavatar mech...

Well to be fair I was wrong about the Psi Moon...


SPOILERS






Turned out it was Better Than Life.

And just like the Better Than Life book, it put an awful lot of sadness into those pop culture riffs. Lister wants to be George Bailey, Swerve wants to be Father Ted, Sheldon and Jerry Seinfeld.

Entertaining podcast, Roberts is definitely aware of the criticisms. I'd like him to not bow to these backlashes and just keep doing what he's doing but that's probably impossible when people keep cornering him and telling him exactly how he's displeasing them. The guy who hasn't read the comics and...

Yeah, at this point the most interesting thing would be to make Blackrock a normal human rather than a Scorponok or facsimile or whatever.

I do get the sense that Abraham Dante will be showing up soon.

It's like they are taking those two 'playlist' pages we spent so much time talking about last month and are making a whole issue out of them! I do quite like this though - it's clear that there's something wacky science fiction hijinx going on. I'm thinking Psi Moon . The avatars are fun and the art...

Transformers #43

Kicking things off - I'm halfway out the door so won't go into too much detail. A slight but satisfying issue. Soundwave extends a hand towards Cosmos and he makes a few interesting points. Why exactly is anyone doing what Optimus or Arcee says? There's some interesting stuff in there about drones /...

Fantastic work! I've been reading these every Friday (most often on the train). Very impressed that you've soldiered on to the half-way mark. I like the little details about the ads and letters pages and back-up strips. It's a chronological history of Marvel UK itself, in a way.

A sliding scale of belief is a good way of putting it. Though to be fair, after four million years it will probably only be the die-hards left. That's a lot less interesting though. When was the last time we saw Needlenose? He's been kicking around in the background with Galvatron's lot, right? Didn...

Looks like Barber's on top form - he's not just filling in holes, he's building stuff with the materials at hand.

EDIT: Lovely work from Griffith too. The Decepticon ghetto is very well established.
