    He should chain Mariotte by his ankle to the table during his panel. That way Ruckley can direct all questions about pacing directly to him.

    I swear to god if the panel gets malicious from fans and panelists I'll keep reading these comics not just that is actually FINE, but out of pure spite because you guys couldn't go one issue without a brawl in-universe and out.

    Are people seriously worried about Ruckley? He'll be fine, jeez. He's a big boy, I'm sure he can take the softball criticism that may be lobbied at him. If he gets a bit of criticism or (god forbid) someone makes a joke, and he doesn't feel welcome anymore, perhaps he shouldn't come back. I'm not exactly sure what some of you are expecting to happen at the panel, but it sounds hilarious.

    I sure hope no one asks about sales during that IDW retrospective panel though, that'd be awkward.

    Continuing to read a low-quality comic out of spite, eh? That'll show 'em. :p  I refuse to apologize for criticizing poor work from someone who has no previous experience writing for Transformers. He should expect any criticism he's given and take it like the grown-ass man he seems to be, that's how writers improve, believe it or not.

    Are we seriously at a point now where criticizing low quality content is considered malicious?

    Will there be a way we can watch it live or something?

    I'm sure the organisers won't let anyone get unruly. I don't read the new run so I've no interest but I do hope people can feel allowed to be critical so long as its respectful.

    Feedback and critique is vital, or else how do we improve anything?

    Most of the actors are going to have very long lines to get autographs.

    You should be able to snag some of the writers no problem; when Marty Isenberg was at TFCon LA earlier this year, there were pretty much no people in line. Which is criminal.

    Evening Folks. I'll have a small amount of copies (10 each of both versions) of my "Trapped In Polyhex" book with me at this years TFN.

    If you want to pick one up, drop me a message

    Softcover is £20
    Hardcover is £25

    (Both have the same content but the hardcover has a nice dust jacket and fancy ribbon!)

    Both come with the A5 IDW supplement "Escaped!" and copies of the Ladybird Book Covers until I run out of them.

    More info: https://trappedinpolyhex.com/2018/07/18/making-a-book/

    I'll not be running around like a madman delivering them to people this year, as it was exhausting doing that last year, so i'll be in the bar with them on Friday & Saturday evening for collection.

    Where's the UK thread please? I'm thinking of getting a last minute ticket and rocking up on Saturday. Haven't been in years since it was Auto Assembly!

    Enjoying TFN so far! I usually do just a day ticket, but here for the weekend this time, so this is all pretty fun.

    I attended TFN this weekend and it was fantastic. Came on here to see if there were any comments on it and saw some pretty pathetic comments from the 11th of July regarding Brian Ruckley. I watched the panel he was on with the artists regarding the new comic and everyone was very respectful.

    I would suggest that the people making those comments didn't turn up themselves, but were able to make them only through the security of looking at a screen. The type of people who would brag to anyone around them about how they'd spit in the eye and kick the balls of someone they don't like, but if they actually met them would shake their hand and be completely the opposite.

    Loved the convention this year, highlight obviously being the Animated audio panel. An excellent job by all the TFN team, as well as the guests, dealers, forge folks, Gundam displays, and the attendees as well. It's definitely a very friendly place to attend.

    Went to TFN on Saturday and stayed at the Genting Hotel overnight with the family, which was really nice.

    Bought a couple figs but starting to regret not getting the £40 giant black and white artwork by Andrew Griffith...
