He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 January 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 08:26 PM)

if they dont seek pizza im out

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

Nrama: Pat, it?s true that you have what can be considered a controversial past. With a renewed visibility on this project, are you expecting controversy in return? And how would you answer your critics?

Lee: I am aware of the controversy to some degree and I respect what everyone has to say. I understand people's anger towards the past and I'm not going to challenge them. People make mistakes, I'm just as human as everyone else is. However, I've always enjoyed drawing comics and I respect any and all comments, bad or good - everyone has the right to speak their mind! But I'm still going to continue drawing comics and do what I love.


He's aware of it "to some degree", people! Whatta guy.

I am glad that he understands everyone's anger towards him, regarding his mismanagement of his business dealings, paying of his employees in apparently imaginary funds, and shifting of Dreamwave's assets to a Dream Engine to escape his creditors (which were also his employees in many cases). I am sure now that he's cleared the air, the former employees he screwed over will be more understanding of how he played a complicated shell game to avoid the consequences of his catastrophically bad business practices and moved on to become a successful comic artist while not paying them one red cent.

Why ain't this under Comic Discussion. TBH it's getting what close to ten years since his crap was pulled. He dosent exactly have anything to do with TF anymore.

Personally all i can say about the guy doing new high profile stuff is that i would'nt work him, and i've told him directly.

Probably because of all the things he did in his run of Transformers and Dreamwave, the shouldn't even be *allowed* to work in comics any more. And when people say "Why is Pat Lee blacklisted?" They can refer back to his theft and dishonesty during Transformers.

The fact that he sucks as an artist, not-with-standing.

There's a General Discussion thread in there and specific Comic issues. We try to keep discussion about things not particular to those two things outside of that forum.

It?s definitely a fun ride throughout the series. Creatures, women?s heads getting chopped off and limbs getting torn off. It?s something you don?t see a lot happen with women anywhere. The series is about women being courageous and fighting for family honor. So, without sound like as sales person


Strong courageous women getting beheaded! A rarity in the modern industry.

and the typically inevitable reference to honor.
