TransMasters Magazine, Winter 2011 Edition!

At long last, the next exciting installment of the TransMasters Magazine is ready! You can check it out here:

Comments are welcome! Also, contributions for future issues are also always welcome!

(One note: Opening Shots, part two is running behind schedule and not quite ready yet. I hope to have it done in a few more days but I didn't want to hold the issue back any longer as it was intended for February and is in danger of growing stale. When part two is done and up, I'll post an update and let everybody know).

Also, Peter Phelps had originally done up a Valentine's Day pic for the issue but since things took longer then planned, I didn't include it (since it would be dated now). The pic in question was also on his Facebook page though, if anyone's curious what it looked like.

Comic Review...

Transformers #16

Writer: Mike Costa
Artist: Alex Milne

(covers by Marcelo Matere and Nick Roche)

MEGATRON's plan enters its second stage as the AUTOBOTS continue to fall under attack from heavily armed humans. Elsewhere, STARSCREAM attempts to initiate a plan of his own with an old ally. Costa and Figueroa aren't bringing everyone out of this issue in one piece as the 'Revenge of the Decepticons' continues!

Comments: For once, I can honestly say I liked this issue. It wasn't earth shattering or anything but I found it sufficiently entertaining. Also, Milne's art was pretty good... I do wonder why Megatron revealed himself so early on in his scheme--I had assumed he'd want to stay behind the scenes for a while and pull strings (of course, he hasn't left Ultra Magnus and the others by the end of the issue so perhaps there's more to reveal next issue?) Also, I find it interesting that now that Megatron's back in charge again, now Starscream decides to act--against him. He had control of the Decepticons all that time and did nothing. Does he need Megatron as his muse or something? I would rather see Starscream act as a competent leader for once (just for the purposes of character development, if nothing else). All things considered, though, this wasn't a bad issue. Hoping more will be revealed next issue...

Verdict: Average.

Working on it...

Work is under way on the Winter Issue of the Transmasters Magazine. I don't yet have a release date in mind (hopefully sometime this month). If anyone has any submissions they want to include, you still have time... I will announce a deadline for them as soon as I get closer to being ready myself.

Stay warm! :)
