As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 04:48 PM)

And depending on where you live, even American stores

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2016 - 02:59 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know how did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

Can you blame him? He gets picked by his fellows to be leader, he's had an absolutely horrible time on the job, and now a mech that had done nothing but cause trouble has come along with the Matrix and pretty much killed any chances of him maintaining the position. It'd be like a sitting US president going through an absolutely horrible first term, only for the guy he beat in the election to find the Holy Grail or the Ark of the Covenant or (to name a Christian artifact that hasn't been found by Indiana Jones) the Spear of Destiny.

Seriously, it sucks to be Bumblebee.

And lo did IDW release from their mighty pens a legend of epic epicness. All astonished were the readers, those lowly crawlers upon the dusty, fowl smelling Earth, for lo did the epic speak in tones of epic epicness, ever. Ever did it speak in ye old high pretentiousness like a badly written fantasy novel. And ever aft did they groan and wait for Roberts, the prophesized savior, to hopefully drop some better writting all up in this thing...


-ZacWilliam, the events aren't bad, per say, but ugh that naration grates. Just tell your story and if it's epic it will be epic. Writing the narration like that, badly, just... Ugh...

So the story that changes Transformers forever is either a rehash of '86 film events with a new stand-in for Unicron, or a rehash of late season 3 where Rodimus gives the Matrix back and we arrive at status quo again. Right. Got it.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

What I'd like is for IDW to realize that there's nothing they can do with the comic that would make it sell more more than it already does without making the stories crappier than they are at the moment. Seriously, how many soft reboot will it take for them to understand that and just put a good writer in charge?

Well, James Roberts is doing co-writing for Chaos, and John Barber's apparently taking over from Costa at #125, so I guess...the number they've already had.

Still loving Bee's not-so-new-anymore design, as well as Hot Rods/Rodimus, I would very much like toys of them.

I wonder what will happen now that Ironhide and Sunstreaker are back.

Yes it does. It doesn't capture what its attempting to do.


But at least its a change from what we're usually getting from the comics. It feels refreshing in that way. We've never had narration in the IDW comics telling us what characters are thinking or their motivations.

Yeah, that is what I felt they are going for with this, probably penned by Alpha Trion if he's this universe's chronicler. It doesn't annoy me, least not yet, its something new and different and could be interesting since Roberts is helping write the Chaos stuff.

I love how Broadside and Jetfire have been drawn so many ways at this point within the same series that the same question comes up, followed by exactly the same answer, regarding an almost completely different character design.

Not likely, this is Costa trying to tie up all his storylines before the next writer takes over.

I'm...liking the epic narration. It makes it seem like its building to something that may actually matter.

Whether it does or not is obviously up in the air, but I'll take this over "ugh" and "raawwr" and splash pages.
