It sucks that there's no new episode...I mean issue this week.
Sigh. What self-indulgent tripe. Sure, Roberts shows off his skill at long-term planning, but can he please get back to telling decent stories that don't rely on such absurdism? Its beginning to resemble a bad sitcom far too much.
I was positive I was going to give up the comic until the last page. Now I have some shred of hope he'll go back to furthering serious plot developments. A shred.
Just caught up, did you?
Now you know what all the fuss was about. Sigh.
This issue would make a great anime episode!
Never thought I´d say this, but... Blue Streak is hot!
Very entertaining, overall!!!
The digital edition just had its price drop, so…yeah. I was braced for a bad issue after glancing in here several days ago and seeing the furor. And it was still a punch to the gut.
For a bad issue it is better than most and I do mean Windblade 6. I think this time Roberts went to much into satire the modern life.
Hmm..I think Alex Milne have been so used to drawing robots/mecha for a long time that his human drawings looks kinda awkward.
Overall an OK issue.
This is sort of a common trend in Transformers art; drawing TFs well is such a specialized skill, and many of the best TF artists are notably more awkward when drawing people, as if the skills and sense of style evident in drawing TFs are non-transferrable. Humans often come out looking stiff (see Figueroa, Su, Guidi, Griffith, etc).
That said, Milne is better than some. Also, in this issue, someone else is inking his work. Normally he inks his own stuff, so that might account for some difference.
I think that this issue best reveals just how desperately Roberts wants MTMTE to be like Doctor Who. Now, I am not knocking DW, I like the show, but I can enjoy other stories and works that are not derivative of it. TFs works best when it is its own thing, and isn't trying to be GoT, DW or something else. This was also the worst TF comic I have read since Carwash of Doom.
