Another Transformers #2 (2023) review

Spoilers! Spoilers! 

The merciless Starscream ices soldier Frosting, this pisses off Channing Tatum... oops, I mean Hauser so much so that he will start his own secret military science fiction unit: G.I. Joe. Conrad is calling his Ninja croupier friend in Vegas: Snake Eyes, right now.

Starscream squished his best friend, now a sober, somber Sparkplug Witwicky wants retribution.

Could Starscream be correct? Are the Autobots actually pure evil? Yes! They want to dominate the human race? Yes!

The malevolent Optimus Prime kills a fawn, oh dear, and does not bury it!

The hypocrite leader of the Autobots clearly cries bogus tears for the baby deer and the fallen Bumblebee. Crocodile tears from the one also called Alligaticon!

Never forget that Prime murdered Teletraan One (see last issue), to stop it from reviving more upstanding and decent Decepticons, but also to keep it quiet, naturally, loose spaceship lips sink ships you know.

The foul Cliffjumper fakes that he's afraid and unaware of humans, then he immediately Freudian slips by using the term "Man".

Stop sleeping, people, wake up and see the truth! Put the sunglasses on! Put 'em on!

What I did like:

Lost Themes albums by John Carpenter mentioned.

Pro wrestling legend Kenta Kobashi mentioned.

FIRST APPEARANCE of DUKE in the Energon Universe! This comic will surely appreciate exponentially in value.

Bambi Meets Godzilla (1969) homage.

#WhereIsMegatron? He's in a glorious eye-popping flashback, finally.

SEGA After Burner arcade game homage!

Laserbeak is a Frank Frazetta fan.

What I did not like:

NO Rumble! Where did he eject to? Maybe he's boycotting the comic like his cassette comrades Frenzy, Enemy and Buzzsaw.

Still no Shockwave!

The art is still an acquired taste. The humans still look especially creepy.

The briefs on Skywarp and Starscream are getting bigger, bro. Diapers they are not.

No cover by Geoff Senior!

No cover by Tom Scioli!

I give it an 8/10. Autobots... there is more, much more going on than meets the eye here. It’s True. It’s True.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds - The Scorpius Run #1 review

The Enterprise picks up a distress call and moves to investigate. Onboard they find one survivor who tells them she has a debt to pay to a local crime boss. Later, the Enterprise arrives at Celius Prime in an effort to help their passenger. Pike and some of the bridge crew are beamed off. They face the crime boss who tells them the only way out of the dangerous Scorpion sector is by way of the most dangerous race in the galaxy. Pike agrees to the race but members of this crew are placed among various other ships in the race. The idea of a race in space is nothing new. It's not even new in the realms of Star Trek. You have 'The Great Starship Race' from the old Pocket Book line. And thus far, I feel the novel is superior. Though the Pike of Strange New Worlds is laid back I hardly think he would so easily agree to all the terms and obviously laid traps he faces here. six out of ten.

Void Rivals #2 review

What’s this then? Why, it’s Void Rivals # 2, the second issue (shocking, I know) of Robert Kirkman, Lorenzo De Felici, and Matheus Lopes’ new sci-fi comic. It tells the tale of two crumbling planets linked by a “Sacred Ring” (it’s not Halo), their peoples at war for generations. When a member of each culture are stranded together, the two find they must put aside their differences if they want to survive. This story takes place in the so-called “Energon Universe”, Skybound Entertainment’s new initiative to relaunch properties like Transformers and G.I. Joe within a shared universe that also happens to include the original characters and setting of Void Rivals. Any good? You know what, yeah! I’m enjoying it so far and I guess I’m not surprised. Robert Kirkman does well with cosmic space stuff and I was a big fan of Invincible. In two issues he’s already crafted an intriguing dramatic setup and a compelling dynamic between our two lead characters Darak and Solila. We’ve seen the “enemies
