SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:16 AM)

I think the only thing that upsets me about the change of Doctors is no more Michelle Gomez, she was magnificent in the role.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Where was this outrage when (the fantastic) Michelle Gomez took over the role of the Master?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

Why did that double post?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

From what I understand (which could be wrong, or right based on some things but not others) is that Gallifreyans are agender and just appear as/present as particular genders because reasons. Kinda like Transformers.

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.
