MTMTE 42

Over the last 25 years the Transformers have appeared in media from the exquisite to the scribbled and been licensed to the responsible and the... Pat Lee. Discussion of all the branches of TF media within!

MTMTE 42

Ravage is so badass.

Any idea what is going on with Swerve?

Nautica got some fantastic moments here

Finally, Getaway is a right bastard.

Thought it was a bint self indulgent tbh.

Got a bit too hipstery for me, would like a bit less of the indy disco bollocks and "clever" enemies.

Also, I find Nautica pretty ******* boring.

I enjoyed quite a bit about it, but I am ready for a good old-fashioned power story like Shadowplay or Remain In Light--the last few issues have felt a bit light and frothy. Enjoyed Nautica and Skids. An entire generation of slashfic just wrote itself.

It didn't reach the high standards it has set for itself in previous issues IMO.

Enemies that feed on charisma just feels like a really wanky concept and I hated the indie disco. Even the people that love going to indie discos hate dancing at indie discos

I always thought that liking Belle & Sebastian ≈ can't dance worth a ****

I was genuinely afraid of being the first one to come out and say this.

Im not too concerned. Is it fluffy? Yea. I mean it is a thunderclash story. Those tend to be that way.

But I like that we are seeing more of the TFs other than "Mega epic final battle of combiner DOOM"

In any case I have a feeling things are gonna get dark and epic real soon.

I think my main issue is I just think Nautica is ****, but she takes up a ******* lot of page time.

Ahhhhhh, it all feels just a little bit like JR is playing to the gallery with her.

Hopefully she dies soon :)

Yaaaaaawn. First average issue in a long time.

Thought the personality ticks were waaay over the top, even for MTMTE. I mean. It's a perfect example of crossing that fine line from pure genius into campy old 70's Batcomputer ridiculousness.

And after the whole Sparkeater thing, this was quite boring anyway, as it seemed very similar to that.

On a positive note....Thunderclash lives!
"But the Costa story featuring Starscream? Fantastic! This guy is "The One", I just know it, just from these few pages. "--Yaya, who is never wrong.
