I tapped out at issue 4. Boooooooring.
I feel like this is a social experiment in bady comedy. A test to see how well the ongoing series can survive when it is being outdone by the Ghostbuster Crossover nobody expected, which is turning out to be a cheesy awesome adventure, while the upcoming One-Shot '84 makes no mistake of what it's trying to do, with a steadfast writer and talented artist where in it's first page, two characters motion towards action and Transform.. There's a no pace with this series, it's supposed to run at a length but it hasn't reached a resolution to any of the first six issues, but we're at issue #11... Which around this time, one Comic Book Generation Ago we had reached Megatron's Escalation Phase and survived Thunderwing's onslaught... and nobody's solved.. anything.
Alternatively.. In a way, I feel like they're just kneecapped waiting for Hasbro to change things up before progressing any further. The Characters are stuck waiting for the owner to Give them the signal to go from Tiresome Political Satire Cop Dramedy to Full Scale Robot Wars with battle damaged paint apps.. or force them to go to the next phase of the "War" Trilogy and go to Earth.. or somewhere, at least that means going somewhere!! Right..?
LOL I know. “I hate this book, so I’m only going to buy the version with the retailer incentive cover!”
I'm afraid I don't follow
It's a Red vs Blue reference.
This isn’t rocket science. It’s possible to not like the comic but still be a fan of Guido Guidi’s art.
There’s people who actually enjoy this series. They just have better things to do than contribute to forums where people just wanna bitch and make remarks for likes
Comics are just not what they used to be anymore. Same nonsense is with Marvel and DC. They seem to have forgotten that these supposed to have ACTION, SUSPENSE, MYSTERY something that makes me want to keep reading.
Jesus every time. Look, if you’re not reading it, or not enjoying it, just avoid these threads. Your time is better used elsewhere. Personally, I’m greatly enjoying it and think it’s setting the scene for some of the best storytelling to ever come out of this franchise.
Stop criticizing this mediocre story, only people who blindly love it are allowed to talk here on this public forum that anyone can join!
Yeah, no. That's not how this works, chief. You're allowed to enjoy whatever you want, but we're also allowed to voice our displeasure, disappointment, irritation and whatever we see fit as long as it doesn't go against the rules. You've got no authority here.
Also, er "best storytelling to ever come out of this franchise"? Not even close to being true.
Marvel knows. House of X / Power of X is making X-Men relevant again.
Meanwhile, Transformers vol. 2 is making TFs irrelevant again. Fuck Bumblebee. I want Sentinel to rip Megatron's spark from his chest in front of Starscream, and blackmail him to get his silence. Hell, even Unicron seeding hatred to fuel the war to nurture itself from the energy consumed was better writing, and that was 16 years ago.
I'm not going to lie, as someone who hasn't read anything from this new comic (outside of front-page news), I still thought this was from the first issue....
I bought every issue up to this, but enough is enough. I will get the Transformers 84, and I hope that 84 will continue.
Constructive Criticsm from a novice:
I did like seeing the Siege toys drawn with all their details. I did like that.
I like the concept of Cyclonus, but like The Scavengers he deserves whole issues devoted to his exploits.
I did like Prowl having a pet, and being demoted for unruliness. Ah but this shakedown of sources occurs after his target's demise, but I did like the revelation of Barricade's tretchery.
I'm not super impressed with Shockwave sounding less than Logical...especially after having such a resoundingly epic backstory in MTME (akin to the Dreamwave Ultramagnus Moment)
The pacing though, the continued idea that something ...less than earth shattering might happen at the end of each issue. Like the chance that Ultramagnus might overcook his eggs next issue.
How would I change it. Action. Either start the story in that war for resources, show us what went wrong....or flash back to it, and shorten the non-action stuff drastically.
Im not a hater. I thoroughly enjoyed LL and MTME.
I want a sequel to Lost Light instead. The epilogue is not enough.
Starscream! It’s about damn time.
There's been action in this series? Not that long ago? Sixshot vs Chromia?
Or did you all forget already or not read those issues at all?
Also Cyclonus vs Shadow striker and Flamewar.
People who think there's been no action yet need to maybe re-read 7-9.
You know, it's funny. The preview threads are just filled with people crapping on the comic and insulting the writer and calling for it's cancellation. And yet in the issue discussion thread proper, most people end up liking it or talking about it in a positive manner.
Maybe you don't realised that we have probably blocked most of them like I did, so, I don't see the treads about it, or don't care to post, because I can't stand them.
i just realised that many of my toys are now of senators .....
... so i am hoping to go out today and get a deluxe class figure of the prime minister to go with them .
