    Another rollicking good time. Kung-FU Grip FTW, and Cosmos proves he's the baddest Mini-bot EVAR!

    Joe Colton is the closest TFs will ever get to a teamup with Chuck Norris.

    It was indeed excellent... kinda liked the two big volumes versus an extended miniseries, too.

    Yeah i like a short story too but they could've made some of the others shorter instead of this one. This one had LOTS of potential and they could've gotten at least 4 big issues out of it instead of just 2

    Oh yeah, definitely - I just meant I enjoyed getting a bigger chunk of story in one sitting.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the first appearance of Monstructor in a US story? If so, it's teh awesome for that alone.

    I thought the story was fun. The art was good, but the action sections seems a bit unfinished. I dunno what happened there.
    The original GIJoe was awesome to see though.

    So, did Pythona and Joe Colton get it on or something?

    Monstructor creates an invisible field that kills life around him?
    Was that in the bio of the toy?

    They had a cameo in that story from the Dreamwave TF Summer Special where Megatron sought out the Predacons, didn't they?

    Ok, what the hell happened here? I hated the first issue, but man, this was actually pretty good. I wonder if they rushed the first issue out, because most of the problems I had with it were gone in this one. The story flowed much, much better, the dialogue was fun and even the art was improved (though it still looked rushed in some places). Kudos to Seeley & Wildman for pulling their shit together, though I wish they'd spent more time on the first issue.

    no its not the monstructors 1st appearance in the US comics.

    they were featured in the old marvel run, that future issue where rodimus was strung between building and galvy got sent back in time.
