Review – Behind You: One-Shot Horror Stories

“It’s so funny to discover you’re made of meat and at any moment the world might take a bite. Our species comes wired with a great sense of humor. It’s one of our best traits.”
– From the introduction by Joe Hill

Brian Coldrick’s Behind You (collecting many of the images from his web series) is a fantastic mix of horror and very, very dark humor. If you like “two sentence ghost stories” you’ll love these, because each one only has a sentence, maybe two, to tell the story, with the picture on the next page. So you have a second to absorb the words, and then you get a little jump scare when you turn the page.

Review – Transformers Lost Light #10

I’ve spent months wanting to punch Getaway and all his stupid mutineers in the mouth: Autobots just don’t turn on Autobots, not to this scale they don’t. I was surprised at how betrayed I felt by the whole thing.

Having read this issue, I have some insight. And I’m still completely baffled. And I still want to punch someone.

Review – Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse: Mr. Wormwood Goes to Washington #1

He doesn’t have any skeletons in the closet because he’s an animated corpse with a drinking problem and very literal worms in the head and everyone knows it. He’s a perfect candidate for our times!

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!

But things ARE looking bad.”
“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 – 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.
