ethan = crazy
“hide yo transformers’……..”
I thought it was just because Transformers is his crack.
i can belive that, and do. but the man just recently started hoarding them from his own store’s supply. it’s a big step for me to accept he does this instead of “hunting”.
Are we sure that he wasn’t an abductee?
There is a man with a mission
“…Is he safe? Is he… alright?”
Oh, Robin you should know better by now…
Yyyyep, I’m missing context.
Still funny, tho.
Ethan m’boy, with a face like that, you could scare Roadblock.
“Ethan’s face does scare, against I do not fair.”
That sentence became gibberish after the comma.
He meant ‘fare’.
Still gibberish though.
Robin’s gonna blow Ethan out of the shuttlebay!
I actually did that to someone not too long ago.
I’m inordinately proud to say that I knew where this one was going as soon as I saw the holy-slag-someone-is-running-straight-for-me-concentric-circles-not-really-radar image.
So… Ethan could stand a sock to the jaw right about now… but who would dare stand in for Grimlock?
Hehe… Oh yeah, same here man. As soon as I saw the rings, I was like “Is he gonna… Oh, what am I saying, of course he i- And THERE we go.”
Oh i so recognise this one too. Awesome reference!
My god! Those teeth!
I hope this doesn’t end in someone harpooning Ethan.
BY THE GREAT DOME!
Am I the only one reminded of Gollum from the Lord of the Rings here?
Good show, sir!
Do your thing, ah-ah, Thunderwing…
As one of my first windows into G1, this issue holds a special place in my heart. Got it in a used bookstore, and aside from knowing about the toys and a single viewing of TFTM on a bad VHS as a kid, this was all I knew about G1 Transformers for years and years. I poured over this comic again and again as a kid- took me a few goes to understand how those Pretender shells worked, having no context whatsoever for the concept.
But I’m pretty sure that single issue had a sizable effect on my creative thinking processes. Thanks to rereading it over and over, I could tell you more about Windsweeper and Spinister than you could ever want to know. (Their tech specs were in the back). And there were letters in the letter page I didn’t really understand until years and years later.
So, in short, I absolutely love this comic for recreating a part of my childhood.
So uh. Someone mind explaining the joke?
Pretty sure it’s a reference to a famous scene of Thunderwing’s in the Furman-era comics. Doing a Google Image Search…
Yeah, you can find the original counterpart to the final panel here. (Number seven)
Man, I’m such a geek that I caught what he was doing so early >_>.
And here, for a reference to the page out of the marvel comic book he is doing an homage to.(Transformers #65(US)) Reference
Thanks for that!
That is a man who is serious about his Transformers.
*backs away slowly*
And I thought only galvatron could make that face.
Or someone who has watched Webword 30 times. I can imagine Ethan channeling Chis Latta at that moment.
That third panel is crazy, any more intense and you’ll be drawing Liefield teeth. Ethan needs to get laid or something.
But he is!
Roni’s “Ethan sense” was tingling.
Someone has pulled the Badass Tag.
This is just TOO awesome.
Ethan appears to need a good old fashioned tasing to help him get his social priorities back in order.
Oh noes! Look at that face! Ethan is becoming a Frank Miller character!
My first job was at a bookstore where the manager was a serious sci fi fanatic. She of course assigned that section to herself. After a while, she figured out that she could simply unpack the books to the backstock shelves, go through them, strip out copies of what she wanted for herself to take home, and ignore the section in the store — after all, she got what she wanted. Six months later, there was no room in the back for any more books, the sci fi section was practically empty on the floor, and we had books in the back that hadn’t seen the light of day. She got fired after a surprise inspection by the district manager, and I spent 4 days cleaning out the back stock. I found 300 copies of “Han Solo at Star’s End” in corner. They say the old manager looked sort of…relieved…
Heh, not to worry. My Tranformers are in a triple plate vault with 7 padlocks.
-beams with pride-
-Ethan walks by w/ box of transformers-
Ethan- Hey AF
sup man?… DAMMIT!! lol
That cracka’s gone crazy.
oh god. i usually read via RSS — but i just noticed the “personal appeal” ads. so amazing roflll
So I take it “holy cheese” is Swiss? Sorry, couldn’t help it.
THE CHEESE IS GOD
This is Awesome, Walky. Matrix Quest #4 was perhaps my favourite issue ever. And this is your second parody of this story arc! Loved the Nightbeat one with the movie bird too…
Probably the best SP strip ever! I love it!
When did Ethan become Cosmic Boy?
At first it looked to me like he was being repelled by an AT field (yes I know they are actually octagonal/stop signs), which fits pretty well with how crazytown he looks in the last panel.
Yes, because the Cheese is God.
And that’s how you activate Ethan’s superpowers. Everyone has them, I guess.
Also, shakram? That’s just cool.
Many months later, the answer to that question is “pegwarming all over freaking New England.”
