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, Orion Pax is back in action and back in time!
As much Shakespeare as I read in high school and college, I confess I kind of though Kill Shakespeare's plot putting a "wizard-god" version of The Bard and his magical quill into conflict with his creations in a shared universe was a neat but wild spin on the poet's usual beat. Then I thought about it for about ten seconds and went, "Oh yeah, he wrote a lot of ghosts. Oh yeah, he wrote a lot of witches. Oh yeah... he wrote The friggin' Tempest." In next Wednesday's Kill Shakespeare: The Tide Of Blood #5 by Conor McCreery, Anthony Del Col and Andy Belanger, all kinds of supernatural elements converge in a climactic battle between, well, everyone - but especially between The Tempest's signature Sorcerer Prospero and Shakespeare himself. It's the kind of thing I imagine dudes like Harry P. and Voldemort would read to get pumped before a righteous duel.
