WE KILL CONS! WE KILL CONS!

This is one of those previews. I’m hesitant to post pictures that are out of context but had to spotlight some of the points that made my gut churn, tears well and heart beat just a mite faster.

Tomorrow is the release of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye issue 12. 1 year in and I’m in love with the comic and characters. It’s getting pretty hard to watch some of the things James Roberts, Alex Milne and Josh Burcham are putting these guys through.

 

The whole 5 page preview can be found at FullMetalHero courtesy of IDW Publishing.

 

Panel pic #1:

Magnus is taking on Hun-Gurr on the left, stomping some dino-con underfoot, shooting one guy on the right and launching two missiles – all at the same moment – and after transforming too. Yep, “he is really good at fighting.”

I love this main panel – it shows the gloriousness of comics in one image – it could be considered a still image, but it also clearly shows a passage of time (vehicle, multiple attacks, movement, smooshing). And you can’t beat Swerve and Tailgate watching from afar.

 

Panel pic #2:

Snaptrap gets on panel briefly before getting a sword shluckted through the back of his head. Guess which Autobot did that?

I love comic sound effects. This one is nicely masked within the image too.

 

 

Okay. This one is REALLY out of context, so you may lose the impact I felt. The third panel is from Page 4, and it is a character i’ve particularly enjoyed so far this series – Swerve. He’s a fast talking, joke-cracking bar man who has gone through a lot this year. Now look at him…

 

Panel pic #3:

swerveheadSwerve!!! How did this happen!!! He doesn’t have a face. Is he alive? Unconscious? The preview doesn’t reveal this but just hits me smack in the gut with this image. It’s haunting.

 

So, a friend of mine wanted to say something:

Goodnight.

Transformers: Regeneration One #86

SLAG!

Hey gang,

I’m back! The school year is about to end, so i’m going to make sure more blogs happen! At least one or two people will read them. 2013 will bring more awesome Transformers comics to read, and also news of my own comics too!

This past week saw the release of the latest issue of Transformers: Regeneration One (#86) and it launches the next story arc from Simon Furman and Andy Wildman. Lots of buzz about this comic, which is of course linked to the TF81 petition that I co-ordinated last year with wild success. (We still have a facebook page running with updates here). I’m going down to Phantom Zone this weekend sometime to grab it, and then i’ll listen to The Underbase review!

The awesome gang at “The Underbase” podcast have reviewed the comic and I recommend you check it out. These guys do amazing reviews of all the Transformers comics, and coupled with the fact that this year the quality has been excellent, they’re a joy to listen to! Go to fullmetalhero and follow the link. You can also subscribe on iTunes really easy. Plug in “the underbase” and you’ll be set. They regularly do interviews with the comic pro’s too, so check it out.

You may be wondering why i’m plugging The Underbase so much. Well, aside from their awesomeness, I also co-moderate the IDW Transformers forums with Ladywreck – but more importantly, when listening to their review of Transformers: Robots in Disguise #11 last week I had some real contrasting views to co-host Matt’s position on the issue. Coming in my next blog!

Cheers!

Luke
