    *reads pat lee bit*

    anger...rising...

    *picks up stress ball*

    rage...subsiding...

    not a fan of his stuff, but he sounds like a really decent guy. especially liked the part where he said 'never satisfied with completed work, always looking fwd to next project'. a lot of ppl in the creative business are like that actually.

    Well, it's interesting to hear that there's truth to all those stories about Pat Lee ripping off Milne.

    Though I couldn't believe just how much he pushed around Milne.

    Very big of you man; but we all still think he's a c**t and hope he ends up bankrupt.

    I gave Pat the benefit of doubt, but after reading that interview I am with Draven's consensus. That is just not cool.

    Did anyone else find that this wasn't available at their local comic shop as recently as this past sunday? The new comics DID come in Thursday after the one-day holiday delay, but Origins was not one of them.

    Origins came in on Thursday.

    I got my copy. The UKers got theirs too.

    Maybe your shop forgot to order it. That happened to me with the Botcon Timelines comic. (And then the shop owner forgot to put a copy in my file when he reordered it - he thought he had but he hadn't)

    Haven't seen too much of his work, but look forward to Megatron Origins.

    And FUCK Pat Lee! How he continues to recieve work and sell books with his reputation is beyond me. Just goes to show how much of a joke the comic industry really is.

    You know what Alex is? Honest. Thats something I like to see from artists, honesty. Its great being able to read an interview by a credible artist. I like how he admitted his dissapointments in his work, thats something not many artists will do. I admire that he went further and did that. I can relate to him.

    That was a good interview to read. I'm glad he took the time out to do that.

    Nice interview, though I personally don't really like his drawings. He's cool though.

    My first post ever :p 

    Hi guys, I'm glad you liked the interview. You can find more TF-related interviews in my DeviantArt gallery, including Chris Ryall, Dan Taylor and Josh Burcham from IDW. If you want to read more about Dreamwave ripping off artists, there's also Makoto Ono and Marcelo Matere ;) 

    Nice boards, by the way :D

    synapse, really enjoyed reading those articles from TF artists keep up the good work. Hope you continue to get more interviews with the people involved with the comic. I also enjoy reading about the Dreamwave debacle, are there any good links you can point me to read about the whole situation?

    Well I myself would like to know more aobut it... actually that was the point in asking these artists the questions I did hehe... I'm pretty sure there's plenty of people in these boards who know much more about the Dreamwave debacle than I do... as I only know what the interviewed artists told me :D 

    Anyway! Thanks for the compliments. I plan on doing more, of course. I do them for the Transformers Hispanos boards as there's some people there who don't really speak fluent english... so yeah I translate them afterwards. I just upload the original version to my DA page so that non spanish-speaking people can read it too :)
