      • Big comic guy, would love to a “Read Your Comics Cast”. Read tons of Transformers and Joes comics. Seems like GIJOE always had better comics, especially in the Marvel years. I think that the comics writers of these franchises get there hands a little tied do to the nature of the property. I for one, would love to see the autobots fighting someone else other then Decepticons. It’s a big universe out there and everything doesn’t transform.As far as comparing Joes and Formers to things like Spidey or Green Lantern, the biggest difference is just depth and character development. Marvel and DC stuff tend to focus on developing a few characters while the toy comics have to cram in as many cameos as possible with very little character development.
      • Ep. 24 was perhaps my favorite. The Hasbro official word on the Fallen and infinite timelines was priceless. I kinda want that on a t-shirt, very small writing and obviously two-sided. Plus, I haven’t collected Star wars in years, but never got a Y-wing, even though I always loved it. Was excited by the Q&A regarding the 2010 one.
