Preview and Review – Transformers Lost Light #9

Last issue (spoilers!) (no seriously if you haven’t read last issue quit reading!) we found out exactly how obsessed Nautica is with bringing Skids back: she’s been hiding his brain-module behind her eye patch. Inside her head. She was keeping his dead brain inside her head. It’s a gesture of extreme devotion and oh my lord is it creepy. I mean it makes wearing a vial of your lovers blood around your neck look reasonable and understated in comparison.

As creepy as it is, it’s still not as far as Nautica’s willing to go.  See below for preview pages and a review of Lost Light #9.

SDCC 2017 – Mairghread Scott & David Rodriguez of IDW’s Transformers

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con we got to talk for a few minutes with IDW’s David Rodriguez and Mairghread Scott, writers for IDW’s Transformers. We discussed the end of Mairghread’s Till All Are One series (and why she wrote Starscream the way she did, because almost against our will we became huge fans of the character) and about IDW’s new First Strike arc and what that means for the Transformers and G.I. Joe. Check it out after the jump!

“Such is the way of combat, storyteller…if war looked good, why would we do anything else?”

It’s a story about medieval Primes and ancient battles, while in the present Starscream smirks and says snarky things about humans. See below for preview pages and a review of Optimus Prime #10.

Review: Doctor Strange Vol. 3 – Blood In The Aether

After a rough month, Doctor Stephen Strange is having the week from hell. The attack by the Empirikul drained the Earth of most of its magic, destroyed Strange’s library of mystical books and artifacts, and left the Sorcerer Supreme to defend the world with not much more than scraps and spit. Worse, the enemies he’s made over the years have started to notice that the Master of the Mystic Arts doesn’t have much magic left, and several of them are fighting for the chance to kill him once and for all.

Oh, and he also gets trapped in Hell. Literally, the really-and-truly real Hell. One of them, anyway. That was Wednesday, and it’s not even the worst thing that happens.

Review – Transformers Till All Are One #12

This is it, the final issue of Till All Are One. (Until the Annual anyway.) I wanted something that would be a satisfying ending, but still leave us with more story to be told. I think we got it, but I’m really curious to see what everybody else thinks. Read on for preview pages and the (spoiler free!) (mostly!) review of Till All Are One #12.

New hardcover of Neil Gaiman’s “Only the End of the World Again” to be released

There’s a lot of us here at PG who are fanatical about anything Neil Gaiman writes, so we’re very excited about the new hardcover edition of “Only the End of the World Again.” The fact that it’s P. Craig Russell’s art is just icing on the cake. See below for the official word from Dark Horse Comics!
