We named the dog "Indiana".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:25 PM)

Happy 30 years to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Truly they are the compleat package.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 May 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Made from the metallized ashes of their previous enemies.

@  MEDdMI : (24 May 2019 - 07:40 AM)

They fight you with sparkles.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)


@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

Maxi, provigo, loblaws.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2019 - 09:42 PM)

Which store brand is it?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I need to buy more "no name" foods. This pizza is freaking awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (20 May 2019 - 11:16 AM)


@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

Grandfather once said to me, "I'm going upstairs and hug your grandma."

@  Sabrblade : (18 May 2019 - 07:08 PM)

Mama always said that you can tell a lot 'bout a person from 'is shoes...

The Grail Page 8.
Story time because I want to be that guy that talks about finding my grail for way longer than I should knowing it's probably not that interesting. If you don't care, skip to below the line for me rambling about the future of the comic instead.
This comic came about when I got back from LexCon 2016. The Tako Tank had been my grail since Botcon 2006 when I decided I wanted every mold made for Beast Wars, even the wacky stuff. Especially the wacky stuff. After getting pretty much all the US and Neo stuff, the BWII stuff was proving difficult. When prioritizing what I wanted most, the Tako Tank quickly went to the top of my list. It was interesting and unless the Niagara Base, looked like it interacted better with the other toys.
Fast forward to 2016, when I was doing well (at the time, at least) and not sure what I was going to buy at that year's LexCon. I was hanging out at the Captured Prey (CP) booth, having just bought an Astro Megazord from them (came back for the Shockwave and Nightbird used in the comic later), when one of the booth workers returns with a Niagara Base in their arms. My first question to them was where they found that and is there more. He answered that there were no more Niagara Bases, which was fine, but there was a Tako Tank, which was even better.
I'm very thankful for the people working the CP booth that night because not only did they alert me to a Tako Tank, one of them was kind enough to lead me to the booth. Now if you were ever at a Botcon, the dealers room is about the same size most years and Botcon 2006 was in the exact same room that CP's booth was in at LexCon that year. That dealer room was LexCon's secondary dealers room on the 3rd floor. The main dealer room was on the 1st floor and is at least 3 times bigger. It's also about 5 times more crowded.
So they lead me to the booth. I had pass this booth at some point noticing only that they had a case of Transformer prototypes, something I'm not into collecting, but fun to look at. They had the Tako Tank pretty far behind the counter blocked from my view. Mint in box, something I don't care that much about, but in a case like this, it means it's 100% complete. After discussing the price and me rushing back to my hotel room for more money, I got my Tako Tank. I did ask the seller where he got it in such good shape. He said he bought it from a former Kenner employee that was clearing out all his work related toys, including some of the prototypes. Do I believe him? I don't know, but for the purposes of this story I do.
Anyways, that's how I got my Tako Tank, my grail of 10 years. Hope I didn't bore you. Now let's talk about what's next for ATTF.
And Then They Fight 45-49 will be gag strips. 47 was already posted (the Super Bowl one). 48 is special, but I'm not saying how. After that, ATTF 50 will be a return to the TAOWAR storyline. Few notes about that.
I'm reducing "T.A.O.W.A.R.: The Adventures of W. and Raider" to just "TAOWAR." I thought about dropping it completely, but it notes that it's part of a storyline for easier reading, similar to The Grail or Spy Troops (which I do plan to continue).
This will be the Land of Summons story I've always wanted to get around to, but never could. Aside from being a continuation of the TAOWAR storyline, this will be a mostly shelf contained story meant to tie up loose ends and have some fun in the Land of Summons aka Tír na nÓg.
And since this post is one of the longest I've done in a forever, here's the cover of #50. Behold, the main villain of the story that all will strike fear in all!

TAOWAR: Tír na nÓg Page 2.
Main cast is a much smaller group this time. There's still plenty of new and old faces to see though. Also, I originally had an entire comic planned before this point where Blade recruits everyone and they get a space ship. My goal was to make things more simple and that created needing a lot of new sets that I didn't have. I dropped all of that and just used Gates again as a teleporter.

TAOWAR: Tír na nÓg Page 3.
So, slight change of plans. Starting next week, two pages a week. Why the change? I've been thinking about doing this for awhile and now seems like a good time. Part of it is that I think this story is better paced for two pages a week and part of it was me getting far enough ahead in story comics that I felt comfortable doing so.
Updated schedule:
May 2019:
5/30/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 4 and 5
June 2019:
6/6/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 6 and 7
6/13/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 8 and 9
6/20/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 10 and 11
6/27/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 12 and 13
PS Unilla Icequeencone is one of my new favorite characters to write for. You'll get to see why next week.
