At this point, Go-Bots has been successful enough that even if I'm not going to work on a follow-up any time soon, I'm sure you'll see Go-Bots popping up somewhere else. After me and John did Transformers Vs. G.I.Joe, it wasn't too long after that that they started Transformers and G.I.Joe and Rom and Microns... They started having more of those crossovers in the mainstream IDW universe, so I wouldn't be surprised if something similar to that happens where, okay, you saw the Go-Bots in their own off-beat standalone comic series and now we're going to introduce a version of the Go-Bots that are part of the cohesive Hasbro universe. -- Tom Scioli

I and my older son and his fiance saw the SHAZAM! movie this weekend, in an advanced showing for some special Fandango customers. I personally found it delightful. It was humorous and silly yet with its serious side. Interestingly, Asher as Billy is a much more serious actor than Levi as "Shazam"/the real Captain Marvel, who hams it up a bit, mugs up the kid in him a bit. Most of all, it was a film about family, and what makes a family.

Could I nitpick the battles with Sivana? Definitely. Did I have a good time? Definitely. Is there an unexpected twist at the very end of the movie, tying it with another DC franchise in a very funny way? Definitely. Was there a delightful cartoon sequence during the credits where Shazam/Captain Marvel arm wrestles Superman, steals the Batmobile, takes WW to the prom? Absolutely. Do you want to stay to the very,very end? Definitely.

The little African-American girl who plays Darla at Billy's foster home stole the show. Freddy was great too. I loved Freddy.

It's definitely Geoff John's SHAZAM, not Beck/Parker/Binder's Captain Marvel. Yet in some ways it stays true to the spirit of the World's Mightiest Mortal, whose adventures often were as humorous as they were adventurous.

It's not for everyone. The best way to describe it is it's the exact OPPOSITE of say, Zach Snyder's BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. It's the anti-BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN.

Recommended, unless you think BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE were great movies.

It took me a little while to figure out how the story worked, and when it was done I dedicated it to Ray Bradbury, who would have written it much better than I did. -- Neil Gaiman
