The Transformed Man, Act 16: Chaos Theory

The Transformed Man, Act 16: Chaos Theory

I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, we're heading back to 2011 for "Chaos Theory" and the first meeting of Optimus Prime and Megatron!

Pull Free From The Tangle Of Swords In Tom Scioli’s ‘American Barbarian’ [Preview]

Ambarb00

If you're a fan of Tom Scioli, then odds are pretty good that you're already a fan of his amazing American Barbarian. Originally released as a webcomic, the story of Meric, the star-sword wielding barbarian in a post-apocalyptic world stalked by a pharaoh with tanks for feet, is one of the best things that he's done, and for a lot of readers, myself included, it's what made us fans.

If, however, you're a new reader who's gotten into Scioli thanks to the work he's been doing recently on Transformers vs. GI Joe, then there's good news: A new edition of American Barbarian is coming back to print this month from IDW, including an introduction by the Rob himself, Rob Liefeld. Check out a massive preview below, and if this doesn't get you excited, then consider that it only gets wilder from here.

And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, "Dark Cybertron" comes to a thundering conclusion and Megatron makes a change!

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For July 22 2015

bestcomics_0722

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

The Transformed Man, Act 14: Dark Cybertron, Part One

Transformers: Dark Cybertron Vol. 1

I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, our two stories collide for "Dark Cybertron," a title that I can actually say without laughing. What is happening to me?

IDW And DC Announce ‘Batman / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Team-Up From Tynion And Williams

BatmanTMNT01

You know how every now and then, a comic book company will advertise a new series by saying something like "Because YOU demanded it," but it only delivers on that promise about half the time? Well, this weekend at Comic-Con International in San Diego, IDW and DC announced a book that I have been demanding since about 1987: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a six issue team-up series from writer James Tynion IV and artist Freddie E. Williams II that promises "wall-to-wall ninja action" in Gotham City.
