On the plus side for Americans, there's not going to be much worth buying from the UK soon (apart from the NHS, amirite?).
If Trump has his way there won't be anything worth buying from America.

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I've not seen that. Is that by the current guys doing the G1 ongoing? The Transformers '84 #0 is by Furman and Guido and it's basically a prequel to the original Marvel US and UK series and explains who was the Man of Iron in the UK story of the same name. It gets some use of Punch/Counterpunch, th...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I think Furman's biggest weakness is that for modern comics he can't write for TPB, which for better or worse is how many people read paper comics now of days. I don't necessarily agree with that. Keep in mind that I haven't read his IDW output since it was relatively new (my big pile of early IDW ...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I think Furman's biggest weakness is that for modern comics he can't write for TPB, which for better or worse is how many people read paper comics now of days. He writes some great one-shots or 25+ issues epics but when was starting up IDW's original TF comics. I think the continuing mini-series for...

Yes, I know it was just an American anime mash-up of two different anime shows made by Toei. I know a lot of people don't like Vehicle Voltron but even in the Americanization of the series, it does have some decent characters and a sightly more morally grey and complex (for the time at least) theme...

I can only dimly recall the 2099 books. I seem to recall it was more that the mutants had their own sort of nation state - which is a massive ghetto really - and whilst not awesome, it was better than their present day counterparts had.

One of those things that probably makes more sense in context, that's hard to get as riled up about as fandom used to considering how much more varied and nuanced relationships and family are in the franchise now as a whole.
Never underestimate people whose jobs is to be constantly out raged.

I'm not planning on buying it because frankly the concept sounds a boring rehash of stories that IDW and Marvel have already done (and probably better for the most part) and DC has really soured me on bi-weekly comics. I am lucky to make one trip a month to my LCS and adding $8 month to a large back...

I finally beat the main quest for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and it's OK but since this is my first Assassin's Creed and I think that this game would have worked just as well if not better if they had ditched any connection to the previous Assassin's Creed games and made this a new franchise.

Well this one was a HUGE surprise but I just got Transformers: Generations-Titans Return Trypticon! Honestly I had written getting this toy off but I found him at a local Ollie's Discount store for $50. My Dad bought him for me! My Dad is so cool.
