I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

I hate that situation where you spend ages to find something, then realize it isn't charged, but you can't find the charging cable.

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 09:00 AM)

no, I don't really watch cartoons on tv no more

@  tffan01 : (22 May 2016 - 03:54 AM)

@Locoman, have you watched the cartoon I was talking about (Supernoobs) though?

Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:33 PM)

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You're a criminal mastermind. Shouldn't you want to wreak havoc?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:16 PM)

You really want to be responsible for the creation of giant radioactive moose?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

Okay, seeing as no one else has posted anything about it...

I feel like it could've used at least one more issue. No offense to any of the people involved in the production, but it felt rushed.

That said, Optimus Prime taking on Cthulhu? Awesome.

Just read both issues, they went so fast it really needed more issues.

And while it was great returning to the Hearts of Steel universe, there were more Humans and Fish people then there were Transformers.

I also feel a little cheated, or maybe bait-and-switched, I was going to skip this but the first issue featured the Seacons, my favorite combiner team getting some page time, and I was hoping then end would be the Autobots fighting a cool Steampunk/Lovecraft Piranacon.

And they don't even appear in the second issue. icon-screamer.gif icon-megs.gif


Like I said it was great seeing the HoS-verse again, but I'd say the first Infestation was much better.

Could have been so much better. And how did Prime have a train mode before he even woke up?

Like if you went to hell, and it was full of blood, and that blood was on fire, and it was raining blood, then maybe that would be enough blood! Eh… but probably not.

What!?!

No steampunk Piranacon in a Cthulhu pretender shell? Or even Octopunch, who should have been in this story?!

I feel cheated...

Then again, these crossovers will culminate in a final issue, maybe something will happen there.

I hope Guido shares some of the Seacon designs, or Bonecrusher, later on.

Agreed. When a great shape rose out of the water, I was really hoping for Piranacon. Oh well.

This story felt like it was riding heavily on the established popularity and knowledge of both Cthulhu and TF. Dixon seemed way more interested in spending time with the humans. At least he's good with period dialect.

The art was gorgeous, though! Guidi's still at the top of his game. It would've been interesting to see Su take it on in his new Mignola-esque style - it would've been the closest thing to a TF/Hellboy crossover - but Guidi's style works very well too. Speaking of visuals, I noticed Wheeljack wielding swords. Ah, cross-pollination.

Dixon sure likes to set things up and then run out of room and then resolve everything in two pages sorta.

I agree the pacing was terrible, but it goes beyond that. For all the time spent on it, the setup wasn't really much of a setup at all. If Dixon had had 5-10 more pages to play out the conclusion, I don't know what else would've happened based on what came before. With the first Infestation, the solution was inherent in the nature of the problem: The zombies came from another universe, and they ended up banished to a third one. But there was no apparent solution to not-Cthulhu, who was portrayed as basically this really old creature who's been on Earth forever. The protagonists were focused on reviving Prime, but even as I was reading it I was wondering how and why his return would change anything. Unless he was going to use the Matrix (which hasn't been seen in this universe yet) as a weapon, what difference would one more TF make? The closest thing to Chekov's gun I could see was Tesla's electricity, which I suppose worked in the Real Ghostbusters, but would still have had the same fundamental problems as Prime's actual "solution." Maybe BB Shockwave's right, and we'll see the real climax in the primary Infestation comics.

Ah, right, I'd forgotten he did that one too. I wonder what the outlines looked like that he showed the editors before he wrote them.

I'm glad I waited and only paid $1.99 for this on Comixology. I'd have felt even more cheated if I paid full price for it.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.
