Not the greatest truck in the world — it's just a tributeon December 3, 2005 at 9:30 pm
I’ve got the next two redrawn IW! strips done. Pay your respects to our dearly departed Kup the truck. He lives immortal within the pages of the Internet.
I got the next issue of the Transformers fanclub magazine in the mail today. As always, the comic, the written bio, and the Hartmans’ article never fail to entertain or educate. (Though I have to say, the art is getting increasingly impenetrable as the coloring gets more and more mushy. I can’t tell half of what’s going on anymore during the fight scenes. They hired ex-Dreamwave people, didn’t they?) Definitely look forward to those every other month.
On the bad side — damn. The BotCon ’05 writeup. Dude. It’s as fair and balanced as Fox News. “It looks like the show had good attendance.” “There seemed to be just as many dealers and tables as past events.” “[The dinner's] entertainment was very original and entertaining.” Pete Sinclair’s balls were firmly on this reviewer’s tongue. It makes me absolutely ill.
We’re also treated to a fan-repainted figure called Quickslinger. A purple Ransack. The given bio for her embarrasses me. It trots out the tomboy stereotype in its full nigh-sexist glory. She’s so violently intent on not being defined by her gender that she is, in fact, defined entirely by her gender. There’s not a single thing in this bio that isn’t about her being a girl.
Also, regarding the latest Teen Titans episode…
So, I guess I hafta split up my DC Animated display. I could almost ignore that my shelf had two Dick Graysons (TT Robin and BTAS Nightwing) on it, but Kid Flash is definitely the same Wally as the Justice League Flash — just younger by a few years. My Titans gotta be moved. Sad, really. Oh well.
Where’s my grown-up Animated Starfire figure? Hmm?
