*Clicks on link* Ooh, that is a lovely webcomic, thank you. I'm going to have to bookmark this.

@  Rycochet : (30 April 2017 - 10:42 AM)

Breaking Cat News is a pretty awesome webcomic.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 09:49 AM)

Brawl in the Family's my favorite webcomic.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 09:48 AM)

You're a penguin, Dedede! You're a grumpy, grouchy guy! Your aggravating antics even sicken Sakurai, Dedede-EE! The only game you deserve is on the PHILLIPS CD-I! You're a mean king, Dedede! You've got Tektites in your smile! You've got all the wrath of Ganondorf, but only half the style, Dedede-EE! You'd even steal a painting of A SEASICK CROCODILE! I think I hate you, Dedede! You pathetic, putrid punk! You're as rancid as a Redead in a landfill full of junk, Dedede-EE! You miserable end-boss, you make me sick! And you can't even keep a pink puffball out of your hair! Three words that describe you best would be "stink, STANK, STUNK!"

@  unluckiness : (30 April 2017 - 09:27 AM)

if you like it you should have put a ring on it

@  2017 : (30 April 2017 - 09:09 AM)

There's nothing wrong with it, it's 99% of the time a joke term.

@  Pennpenn : (30 April 2017 - 08:39 AM)

I'll be gladder when the term "waifu" gets somehow deleted from existence, or at least falls out of common (or any) use.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 April 2017 - 04:36 AM)

Blasphemy! Zero Suit Samus forever!

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 03:31 AM)

That feeling when you finally realize that King Dedede is the best waifu and all others are shit.

There are probably plenty of people who wouldn't know them from Adam. Me, for example.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 April 2017 - 08:16 PM)

I thought of something else about TFW2005 versus the Allspark. If Ignash was allowed back here, wouldn't that initiate lots of frustration and/or abandonment by people here?

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 04:31 PM)

they don't kill. they eat half of your face, and you're left with a hideous tumor where the barnacle is.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]†This eye is derived from the primary†naupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

@  Whirl Maximus : (29 April 2017 - 11:09 AM)

I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

@  Bass X0 : (29 April 2017 - 09:57 AM)

But the ugly barnacle realised he would grow up to become a beautiful oyster. Only he was killed before then for being so ugly.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 09:46 AM)

That didn't help at all!

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 09:32 AM)

Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The end.

I thought AA discussion was going here: http://www.allspark....showtopic=61343

Man, there are too many nods in this book to count. It's like somebody went down the list of pages in the Transformers Wiki and added everything in.

Even Seafood Louis.

I don't think I've ever had higher expectations for a TF product than I do for this book.
Maybe the first episode of Beast Machines. Maybe.

Eeep! Well, I hope I live up to them.


Well-and-truly did. I'm still reeling from the awesome. Seriously, I was gearing up to attempt a review but then once I read the whole thing it's like sensory overload and now I just need to lie still in the afterglow for a while. I really think Animated was the best overall cartoon this hobby ever had and like most others I was really startled and let down when it came to a close. Maybe you and Bill can't make it any longer, but you can add breadth and depth and detail that... helps very much and just overwhelmed me.

Thank you for making it. Please make a volume 2.

(Though I had an alarmingly difficult time finding it at LCS-es. Jim Hanley's, one of the biggest and most well-known NYC comic shops, had received all of ONE copy. Midtown Comics got more, but they were all buried in "Young Readers" because apparently based on the cover it had been mistaken for a coloring book. WTF is up with a comic shop even having a "Young Readers" section anyway?)

I find that most do. Usually it's a rotating bookrack found near the front of the store, perhaps with some additional shelves, full of Archie Comics and Superfriends.

In brief: The summary for The Arrival #1 is a manuscript written by Vector Prime, observing the events of the story.

The summary for The Arrival #2 is rendered as an issue of the Detroit Powell Press. One of the headlines is about Junko Shirigami (the Binaltech Asterisk character, rather than the RiD girl) dating Michael Avery.

The summary for The Arrival #6 is written as a page from Ultra Magnus's memoirs, prefaced with a haiku from "Sky-Byte, Decepticon Poet."
