    He wrote a long hyperbole filled paragraph asking the heavens how the person could be employed. And I answered; by having a catalogue of well reviewed work.

    He was discussing his writing ability, you discussed his artistic ability. One doesn't equal success in the other.

    I listed multiple projects that Scioli wrote as well, including all of his self published books such as American Barbarian and his DC Comics work.

    Then congrats on quite literally not knowing what you're talking about, I guess?

    They've never heard of them, but they think they're drivel. Checks out I guess because that is how things work.

    I really need to pick up the Star Trek/Transformers book. The GoBots, however, looks like they are indeed not taking ANY aspect of it seriously. I should have expected no less, my only option is to vote with my wallet.



    After Marvel bought Malibu Comics, there was an ad placed stating simply "Marvel read the Ultraverse. Look what happened." This line developed a much darker meaning given what DID happen after the buyout. I don't view ANY comic company being bought out by Marvel as a good thing anymore. I really wish DC would have won the bidding war on Malibu, at least I'd still have stories of the characters to read as opposed to what I have now. Hell, I can't even get a Solitaire figure snuck into the Marvel Universe line...

    You can have as many awards as you want for your comic, but that doesn't mean anything if people haven't heard of it/

    They killed the continuity that I've loved for the last 13 years.

    Good bye idw, I have no reason to buy any more of your books.

    Man, if only the passion that IDW seems to inspire - on both the pro side and the con side - actually translated into sales for their books.

    I feel you, they did the same thing to me with All Hail Megatron.

    I enjoyed the entire run.
    The high points for me were
    Furman's era of 84 2.0 that ran alongside his goofy space opera stuff
    And the Barber/Roberts/Scott era. I was especially fond of the Windblade books. Mairghred Scott is thus far, my favorite transformers writer.
    The low points were the big events. Idw is at its best when it's telling a month to month ongoing story. The events felt like forced mandates from either Hasbro or upper management. (Especially Revolution and First Strike)

    Same! It's a nice cover but it isn't suited as one for the final volume. Either Milne's or Jack's final issue covers would be much better.
