TRANSFORMERS: Windblade #5 Review

While Robots In Disguise has gone through various changes, including plot and name, issues like Transformers: Windblade #5 make me wonder why things aren’t the other way around. Why can’t Windblade be a more permanent character? The official description from IDW: RACE AGAINST THE LIGHT! On VELOCITRON, racing isn’t a sport—it’s a matter of life […]

God Hates Astronauts #9 Review

God Hates Astronauts #9 does what the series has always been good at – provide random, quirky comedy around a central plot thats played fast and lose. There are a few problems that become apparant with each new issue, but the crux of the series is still very easy to enjoy.   First, the official […]

Transformers: Robots In Disguise #42 Review

Transformers: Robots In Disguise #42 is one of those issues that offers a lot at first glance yet, after a second read through, starts to appear a little shallow. Still, thats the problem with being an epilogue, no matter how much you offer, you’re either summing up whats already happened or teasing something else. First, […]

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #41 Review

From the outset of Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #41, you could expect a grim storyline. Heck, it’s got a funeral and the series has dealt with similar themes before. What we have, however, is much more the opposite. Whether that’s an improvement or not may very well split the audience. The official description […]

Transformers #41 Review

As the Combiner Wars event swings into the second half, Transformers #41 starts to bring more action and quicker, faster developments. While this feels off with the slower pacing, it does feel all the more substancial as a result. The official description from IDW: DESPERATE ACTIONS! As the SPACEBRIDGE reaches across the stars, will anyone […]

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5 Review

Well, it’s been a fun little mini series and G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5 marks the end of it all. So, was this series good over all? Is the ending effective and does it actually promise anything for G.I Joe’s future? Especially with the current end of the main title’s current ‘season’. […]

G.I Joe #8 Review

8 issues in and the new ‘series 4’ is already over. G.I Joe #8 marks the last of the current storyline and title so, while it is abrupt, how does the end result look? First, the official description from IDW: The war of intel and secrets reaches dangerous new heights as Scarlet’s G.I. Joe team […]

BEYOND BELIEF #1 Review

Beyond Belief #1 is an odd book. As a comic, it’s easy with a simple plot. Yet it’s charms lie in the novetly of its humor. It’s not in-depth reading, but its not lacking either. The official description from Image: Based on the hit Nerdist podcast! It’s time to send the little ones to dream […]

Transformers: Windblade Combiner Wars #2 Review

Well, Transformers: Windblade Combiner Wars #2 is actually the third issue in the Combiner Wars arc.. I think. Still, it’s holding up well and this issue, particularly, sees a decent return to form. The official description from IDW: PROWL makes his move… and the galaxy will never be the same. Can WINDBLADE stand against the […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #213 Review

Despite the stupidity and sillyness of G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #213 and its current plot, it’s hard not to feel impressed in some way. As far as all out action, suspense and drama goes, this issue definately pays off and – for that – it’s hard not to like it. The official description […]

Drones #1 Review

With a title such as Drone #1‘s, it can be very easy to think of it as a purely military, patriotic spy-fest. However, Drone #1 adds just enough surprises into the mix to give it a whole different angle. The official description from IDW: Two former predator drone operators face insurgency and insanity on the […]

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #4 Review

Well, it’s only a 5-part series, so G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #4 is the penultimate issue, rife with plot set-ups and final confrontations. Still, based on its charm and atsmophere, it might just be the best issue so far. The official description from IDW: SNAKE EYES’ mission for COBRA has been severely […]

Transformers #40 Review

While the “Combiner Wars” title isn’t very apparent so far, Transformers #40 continues the trend in this latest issue, with a big cross-over arc that teases more political aspects than it does simple fighitng. Honestly, I can’t tell what I prefer, but there are some definite improvements here and – at the very least – […]

The Surface #2 Review

The Surface #2, like its first issue, isn’t all that easy to define. The first could, at best, be described as an artistic mind-f**k that was, quite frankly, compelling. And now? Well it’s still very much the same, perhaps even more so. The official description from Image: There’s a traitor on the team, and a […]
