Congratulations to the USA! Three days since the SCOTUS made their historic ruling, and you still haven't all be struck down by divine lightning yet! (Clearly you're just not trying hard enough, so you know what they say "Practice! Practice! Practice!!)

And to celebrate, three pages from Jem and the Holograms #4



It's like Romeo and Juliet... except with powerchords and lesbians, and hopefully a lower mortality rate. )

When last we left our exasperated heroine, she was defending Metroplex's spacebridge as Swindle and a bunch of Decepticons stormed it. Meanwhile a bunch of combiners were duking it out over on Caminus... again.

You'd think they could find someplace else to fight )

ALSO! Several of you have commented in previous posts that you enjoyed Sarah Stone's artwork on the issues she did. Well, guess who now has an art book out? (Hint: it's Sarah Stone.)

When last we left our not-in-these-scans heroine, Prowl and the Constructicons formed Devastator to wreck Metroplex's spacebridge so as to stop Starscream from creating a Cybertronian empire. Then a bunch of other Transformers combined and put down Devastator and Prowl got arrested.

Now it's time for visiting hours )

"You don't wear your strongest influences like a shirt, something you take on and off as you like. You wear those influences like your skin. For me, Ray Bradbury is that way. From the time I was twelve to the time I was twenty-two, I read every Bradbury novel and hundreds of Bradbury short stories, many of them two and three times. Teachers came and went; friends ran hot and cold; Bradbury, though, was always there, like Arthur Conan Doyle, like my bedroom, like my parents. When I ruminate about October, or ghosts, or masks, or faithful dogs, or children and their childish frightening games, every thought I have is colored by what I learned about these things from reading Ray Bradbury. One of Bradbury's most famous collections is The Illustrated Man, which features a man tattooed with a countless number of Ray's stories, a man who walks through life carrying all those stories on his back. I relate."

...as a Truly OUTRAGEOUS post

(Sorry, I had to get that out of my system and better now than later)

Now as you know, I pride myself on being the manliest of men, the most testosterone-driven pile of XY chromosome derived masculinity as you could ever hope to meet...

And like all manly men, I have an unfeasily large interest in a mid 1980's cartoon series called "Jem", a series with an almost entirely female cast (only three regular male characters over the whole series; the heroine's boyfriend, the evil manager, and a rival band's lead singer in the last run of episodes) and featuring more female agency than most other cartoon series since the mid 1980's combined! In the words of the theme song there was 'Glamour and Glitter, Fashion and Fame', but also adventure, romance, a heroine who is an executive as well as a pop star, some sci fi in the form of her hologram projecting earrings, exotic locations and... well, pretty much everything you'd hope for in a cartoon (and no ccomedy relief pets!)

I posted some of the preview character bios, and also a little sample of #2 a few weeks back, but those are the only posted pages on S-D do far (somewhat to my surprise), so I though that, now #3 is out, I would make a slightly longer look at it, because by heck it deserves one.

Only the Beginning! )

When last we left our aerodynamic heroine, she was trying to help clean up Caminus and create a multi-planet Transformers council of worlds, where Cybertron and its colonies would have an equal voice. Meanwhile, Prowl decided to ruin things because he's kind of a jerk.

He didn't phrase it exactly that way )

When last we left our ambassadorial heroine, she was undermining the elected leader of Cybertron by establishing Optimus Prime as a living deity on Caminus. Also there were rampaging giant giant robots, so now there's a lot of repair and clean-up to be done.

Quick! Does anyone transform into a dustpan? )

When last we left our unfortunate heroine, her home planet Caminus was being invaded by the combiner Menasor.

Well, the police can handle it, right? )

When last we left Cybertron, the Aerialbots had somehow fused into a combiner, Superion, but were left comatose afterward. A bunch of Transformers left for Earth to retrieve the Enigma of Combination, an ancient artifact that allows Transformers to turn into actual functioning combiners. They got their hands on it, and Scoop secreted it to Starscream.

This can have no bad results )

And issue 2 ot IDW's visually stunning revamp of quintessential 1980's cartoon Jem has a preview for issue 2 up here, and we meet my favourite girl group (outside of The Pointer Sisters)




One of the trademarks of the Jem cartoon was the musical numbers were done in the stle of proper MTV musc videos, and when we meet the Misfits in the opening pages it seems they're sort of taking the same route

And it looks awesome.. )

So you know The DJD, right? We've met them before. Cheerful bunch. Enjoy their work.

However, for every successful military division, there's someone holding them up behind the scenes. Enter "Nickel".

But first, Tarn is having a little chat with someone doing something rude. )

I'm going through an extremely busy period and I haven't been able to post anything lately, nor do I think I'll be able to post anything for quite some time. Plus, my Megatron & Starscream series almost got up to date with the current IDW series (http://tinyurl.com/mjplzwd), and there is very little material left for me to show.

But there is one page in particular I always wanted to share. And today, when I saw that the Humble Bundle is back with almost 100 TF comics for around 12 dollars, I decided to finally do it :)

He used to be such a sweet boy... Ok, no, not really, but he was slightly less murderous! )


And here is the link to the current Humble Bundle: https://www.humblebundle.com/books

The Death of Optimus Prime, generally considerd an excellent jumping-in point, is included in More Than Meets The Eye Vol. 1. It's pay-what-you-want, so you could get 37 issues for a dollar.

The serpent encircling the world shall ever have a guiding will.

The foes of G.I. Joe known as Cobra will always have a Commander.

They've had many in IDW's continuity, the one that's not Larry Hama picking up right where he left off. Issues #12 and #13 of its namesake ongoing (not the current one, but the one preceding it), written by Paul Allor and drawn by several artists, told stories about some of them through Cobra's newly hired PR person.

Her motive for taking on the job was quid pro quo. )

Back in part 7, the writers decided to up the ante and threaten the destruction of the entire Universe instead of the usual planets, and Transformers learned what it feels like to be attacked by something 100 times your size.

I like big bots and I cannot lie )

Now amongst my other varied and sundry interests (and more of them in a forthcoming post), I have a soft spot for the old Jem cartoon (Which I now realise is almost 30 years old)... or more particularly for a couple of the aspects of the cartoon.

For those too young to remember Jem, it was the (and I say this now to avoid accidentally stumbling upon the term later on) "Truly Outrageous" story of Jerrica Benton, CEO of Starlight Records, who moonlighted as up and coming rock star Jem (With her little sister and friends making the group "Jem and the Holograms".

At any rate... there's a live action movie out next year (Which based on word of mouth is a little more low key and doesn't even include rival band The Misfits by most accounts), and in advance of that IDW have a new comic, and... it's not quite what I was expecting in terms of style....

and I LOVE that it's not what I was expecting. )

This is a story-in-a-bottle issue, for the most part. We see some pre-war Megatron, along with finding out who "Terminus" was, that he originally dedicated his missive "Towards Peace" to. That's not what I'm sharing, but you should go read it.

Bluestreak, First Aid, Trailcutter, and Mainframe have set down on a planet, and found a heavily damaged and as yet unidentified bot. There's a brief discourse over whether it's an Autobot or Decepticon, with Trailcutter and First Aid pointing out that it doesn't matter, as the war is over. The damage is heavy, made worse by Bluestreak and Mainframe moving the victim around to try to find his badge or figure out his alt-mode. This reduces the survival time from hours to minutes, prompting First Aid to set up a transfusion of active energon. There's a mild risk, but with the four of them, First Aid assures them the danger is minimal.

Then Bluestreak has a question, after digging through the rubble around them.

What kind of Cybertronian has a removable face? )


QUESTION FOR MODS: Two of the characters in this post have upcoming third-party figures. Is it okay to post images and basic info about them here? Wasn't sure if that would count as "fan art" or something similar.
