Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #36 - "Elegant Chaos, Part 1: All Our Parlous Yesterdays"

"The Justice League International cover has been homaged to death, I know, but we used it as the basis for issue 1′s cover because it had become pop-cultural shorthand for ‘this is a fun ensemble book that doesn’t take itself too seriously’ – and I was very keen to send that message out into the world because I don’t think the type of casual comic book readers we wanted to attract were aware that Transformers can do lighthearted, frothy stories (at this point I should add that the lightheartedness and froth was, of course, just a cover to disguise the drama and pain underneath)." -- James Roberts

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #209

"I never did read what was in the captions [in comic books]. People act and they talk. If it needs to be narrated, something is wrong. I try in my comics plots to make the story apparent in the pictures. Then, I add what words are needed to keep the whole shebang moving along. The less words I have to write, the better. It totally makes my teeth hurt when the artist puts me in the position of having to write dialog to explain the action." - Larry Hama

Inhuman #10 - "The Dark Queen"

"I also think that this particular development of the Inhuman concept feels very organic. It's a shift that makes sense - of course there would be people across the globe with Inhuman genes." -- Charles Soule

Bendis and Bagley reunite for 'Ultimate End'.

Not a huge shock given the other news but Bendis and Bagley are penning a miniseries about the 'end' of the Ultimate universe. (This being the third time such a thing has been threatened, but this time it's for reals) More info here.

Again, this is something that I can't bring myself to care about. USM is not as good as it used to be and at this point and I have no idea what's going on with the rest of the titles. Well it was fun while it lasted.

They're Not Like Us #2

"So many comics over the past several decades have dealt with the positive aspect of super powers, with people gaining or being born with amazing abilities and then deciding to use them for the greater good, but as fun as that stuff is, it’s a myth, a lie. People use their talents, whatever they may be, to get ahead in life." - Eric Stephenson
