    More Than Meets the Eye just continues to blow my mind. It is (for me, of course) the best damn Transformers story ever (maybe even comic series). I wish wish wish some of that writing could make it into Prime or the movies.

    I was a little behind, but I was reading Fulcrum's introduction while waiting for a tire change, and I was laughing out loud in the waiting room.

    But it's not just that it has some quirky humor. It just has more characterization than any of the recent TF comics of the last 10 years.

    I'm sure this could go into any different threads, but god damn this series is fucking amazing!

    Lol, yeah I know. But this series envelopes everything I love about comics. You need to catch up... well, I need to catch up still, lol. Still haven't read the annual.

    MTMTE is indeed the best comic I've read in a while, easily better than pretty much anything being printed out there today. And I agree, we need this level of writing in mainstrem TF media, especially the TV shows.

    When's a trade for MTME supposed to be out? All I see are RiD trades, and I'm 90% certain my comic shop dropped IDW. That, or it would sell out before I got there.........

    Ooooh, you've yet to read the Annual? You are in for an absolute treat.
    And, yeah, I can't get enough of MTMTE either, it's fantastic. It's easily my favourite Transformers related anything ever.

    Have you read More Than Meets the Eye? Last Stand of the Wreckers? Robots in Disguise? If you have and don't like any of those, well, there's just no hope for you.
    (I kid obviously, but if you don't like even one of those, seriously?)

    Before we proceed I'd like to point out Avengers has said;

    And...

    Just to put things in perspective.

    The first trade is already out.

    I just want to be able to tell them "You're doing it right." I hope they are spelunking through boards and seeing that people love this. It's almost a universal love for this thing
    .... "Almost".

    I have yet to get to the annual, but I will this week. I was almost pissed that they told me my car was ready because I had to stop reading.

    Again, sorry for double-dipping on what is already being discussed in another thread, but this is more unhindered love expression for this damn comic.

    We need a MTMTE cartoon, because I agree that the writers for it actually know what the heck makes a good story, and it's not just robots constantly beating the shit out of each other simply "Because".

    To add on to this, the art he's hating on (IDW MTMTE) and the art he's loving on (DW's G1 run), is actually for the most part done by the exact same guy; Alex Milne. Alex has done the art for most of MTMTE since issue #2 I believe. Avengers will probably think I'm lying out of my ass here, but that's because he only takes everything at face value and so will wholeheartedly believe Pat Lee did all the art for Dreamwave's G1 comics. Even though it's petty much common knowledge at this point most of his art was ghosted by Alex.

    You have to admit, Pat was a nice guy, he bought the company a Porshe, how nice of him! He was so nice, he give them an IOU.

    Being serious for a moment, have those artist(s) even been paid back yet?

    Actually, he bought two Porshes. The second one went to his brother.

    And no, the scumbag still hasn't paid a cent of what he owes. That's why he's still over in China where his debtors can't touch him.

    MTMTE really is fantastic. It alone brought me back to Transformers and this Board, after being away for years.

    I'm also a big Batman/DC Comics fan, and yet MTMTE is still my favorite book to read. So kudos to Roberts and IDW for pulling off that amazing feat.

    I would love to have MTMTE toys and Direct-to-DVD movies, but I'm just glad "we" have this. The Bay fans have their movies and the Prime fans have their cartoon -- at least we have this awesome book.

    That's the thing. They barely beat on each other. And when they do, "Ratchet lends a hands" lol.

    I have to add that I, too, was confused on when the trades were available.
    Amazon sent me emails listing the MTME and RID trades as things I would be interested in, but when I went to go buy them it said they were preorders.

    If they're available now I'm gonna grab them.

    If they're as good as people say then I'm pretty excited.
    With this, Prime episodes of epicness like Legacy, and Fall of Cybertron it's a good time to be a Transformers fan.

    Your insane, Pat Lee doesn't owe anybody shit all. Dreamwave might have owed people money, but not anymore. It's called Bankruptcy son. All of DW depts evaporated when DW did.

    I used to read the current Batman title but dropped it when the Court of Owls ended. It was a snore-fest compared to MTMTE.
