SPECIAL GUEST ARTICLE!

Hey there, nerds! In other news, I went ahead and did a guest/combo feature over at The Dragon Fortress, in which I share some random thoughts about old neon-colored action figures. Fun stuff! You should check it out! Honestly, if you dig old toys and and goofy nostalgia, go ahead and check out the rest …

A Tale of Two Cybertrons

Reboots are pretty much par for the course in comic books these days. In fact, it’s probably a sign of a franchise’s general health– if it sticks around long enough to get rebooted, that means SOMEBODY must like it, right? Which brings us to the current Transformers comic book. See, back in 2005, IDW picked …

Book Review: Dan Gilvezan’s Bumblebee and Me: Life as a G1 Transformer.

Ever since I was a kid, I loved Transformers– I mean, cars are cool, robots are cool, and therefore cars that turn into robots are exponentially cool. This is science.

Transformers vs. GI Joe is the best comic book ever.

Oh hey, it’s been a week, hasn’t it! Unfortunately, this whole ‘being an adult’ thing has kept me busy this last week or so– though I’ve almost finished a Mil Sci-Fi book of … dubious quality, which should make for a fun review. Also, I’ve got the script written for another YouTube episode of AnArmchairAcademic, …

UNFAIR COMPARE: Transformers: The Movie vs. Transformers: Age of Extinction

I’ve had Transformers on my mind for the last week or so. To be fair, I’ve had Transformers on my mind ever since I could walk. I mean, it’s a pretty ingenious concept: cars are cool, robots are cool, therefore cars that turn into robots are extra cool. I’d say it’s a hard concept to …
