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.

Renaud Frequently Asked Questions

Is that Autobot Stratosphere in G.I. Joe: Special Missions (2013) #3?       Yes, it is. I was Paul Gulacy's toy reference guy for most of his run on Special Missions. You ran the CTLP?       Yes, the Complete Transformers Listing Page, it linked to every single Transformers website on the internet. I kept it updated and dead links free for years and years. A titanesque task. Who was The Myth on the CTLP?       The Myth was my nickname for the youngest Transformers webmaster in the world. Today, he must be in his early 30s. Time flies.  You started a petition for G1 reissues?       Yes, in the late 90s. My online petition was signed by hundreds and hundreds of Transformers fans who wanted Hasbro to rerelease Generation One toys from the 80s.  Is that you credited on the Inhumanoids: The Complete Series - 2 Disc Set?       Yes, I supplied all the scans for it. Over the years you've helped multiple major online retailers and publishers sell Transformers and G.I. Joe products?     

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane The Original Marvel Years review

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane the dour English Puritan Swashbuckler gets a complete collection of his classic Marvel adventures. Sadly no Dark Horse Comics Guy Davis monster creations inside at all. You get All the pin-ups, adverts, text pieces + All the Kane stories from The Sword of Solomon Kane limited series, Savage Sword of Conan, Conan Saga, Kull and the Barbarians, Marvel Premiere, Marvel Preview, Monsters Unleashed and Dracula Lives. My favourite stories are: A Marvel Team-Up featuring the ectomorph: Kane in his twilight years and the mesomorph: Conan the Barbarian in his prime (The Moon of Skulls II: Death's Dark Riders by Roy Thomas and Colin MacNeil). Kane versus a ghost that kills (Skulls in the Stars by Ralph Reese). Kane versus a Lovecraftian cloud of blood (The Footfalls Within by Don Glut, Will Meugniot and Steve Gan). Kane versus the bat-people (Wings in the Night by Don Glut and David Wenzel). Kane versus vampires/zombies/the walking dead men (The Hills of t
