Huh. Well, that slipped past me completely. I shall have to pick that up tomorrow, it will give me something to read after swimming. (Actually should probably get around to downloading last weeks MTME at some point. Paid for the thing, so I should probably get around to reading it!)
I knew I had lost interest when I realised I bought #6 but forgot about it until just now. What I read was great stuff but my gut instinct tells me it's better suited to a short limited run rather than an ongoing series. The joke felt done by #5. Nothing wrong with what I read. It was dense and utterly mad in a good way. I was just done with it after about 4 issues.
Best one yet. Totally separate to the others. I loved the premise: swap the monolith on Earth in 2001 with the Ark crashing and go from there. Bizarrely it would seem in Scotland? rather than America. Really fired my imagination - Transformer technology in pre history shaping human development. Was that Frenzy's face becoming the first Destro mask? Absolutely loved it. Brilliantly creative thinking.
I neeeeeed that inside cover wrap as a poster/print. If I bought a digital copy of that issue, what kind of resolution could I extract that picture at?
Not enough robots in issue 11. I do still very much enjoy this, but I'm wondering now where it's going. Apart from the prehistory issue it isn't really doing anything beyond what a mini could have covered. I know cover art as far as 13 has been shown, but how long can it keep going?
When I posted that I was half expecting 13 or 14 to be the end because the last trade covered 5-9 and they'd get another book out that way. I couldn't see it going all the way to 20 for a fourth volume. But if 13 is double length and there are other sundry bits to pad it out, then it makes complete sense to end it there.
I was much the same to be honest. Love what I've read of it - it takes the subject matter and just goes running off to epicville with it, with some fantastic stops in psychological thriller territory (the Scarlett focused issue is actually disturbing stuff once you read past the Kirbyesque artwork), And its determination to do something different instead of retread the past is a joy. But its rather variable release schedule along with my restricted time for reading lately meant that it was easy to lose track of.
I will probably pick the rest of it up from Comixology once my assignments are mostly out of the way, as a late spring treat.
