Once I get all the missing issue & after the series is over I'll be re reading the whole set but this time without reading the back pages. I've not re read any of the DW/DDP issues more than once & can't remember anything that happens so might read them beore AHM
That piece feels like regular old internet parania and over reaction. IDW have already said GI Joe: RAH will continue as its own thing. As will Jem and I'll be more than surprised if MLP joins the crossover.
What a beautifully affectionate conclusion! Loads of shocks, loads of smiles, loads of fun. One of the most entertaining comics I've read in a long while.
I realise now why I liked this book; it's because the imagination in it is very child-like. It's like the stories kids make up when playing with toys, but with the hindsight of over thirty years of history to homage at the same time.
Brilliant. "I was talking to the matrix" is still making me chuckle.
I just need to get #12,13 now to have the full series. But want to see what these are "Additional writing/art pages 4,18,20,35,36,43"
It's nothing new. Those pages use images from the older comics as faded backdrops where the action in the story relates to older events. There a gorgeous montage of Megatron images from various old issues, so the original writers/artists are credited.
The other two are double what they cost at the con too, but then in the organiser's defence I suppose he's only going for market prices and probably looking to recoup the cost of the outlay. More power to him if he can sell them at that price.
I read the Volume 2 trade (issues #5-9) courtesy of the library which picks up after I dropped the book due to its 'an issue comes out who knows when' schedule. Hmmm. There's some great stuff in there but it also becomes more obvious that A: the joke is pretty much tapped out by this point and B: some of is just downright incoherent. I just can't shake the feeling this approach would have been best suited to a fixed length mini of 4-6 issues. There is undeniably brilliance in here but it's all over the place. It swings between inspired and undisciplined sometimes within the context of a single panel.
