Good read again, Mr. Dalek.
I loved that a typo made me laugh in this one. The thought of a conflicted and doubt wracked Prime throwing himself into a spring clean of the Ark to clear his mind is hilarious. That's how I interpret Prime "mopping" rather than "moping" anyway.
Looking forward to the coming blogs. We are now entering a rich vein of form in the comics. Keep up the good work!
Wicked little blog, Stuart, one of my online highlights of the week. Reminds me of my Sunday mornings heading down to the newsagents with my dad and picking up the latest copy of 'Transformers' with my bag of cola pips and Dairy Milk bar. I bought the comic religiously up until around the Headmasters time, when I thought the brand was getting too gimmicky and moved onto more adult stuff ('Action Force'). I never had a letter published but I remember winning a set of Marvel UK annuals in a competition, even after getting 1 of the 3 questions wrong. Anyway, thanks for the continued entertainment and do carry on what what what
@Rack and Ruin: Curse ye Sir. It's amazing how I will always miss at least one obvious typo no matter how many times I go over it. Though as a tribute to your pleasure, I shall leave it unchanged.
@Nick: Thank you Sir. You may be pleasantly surprised/horrified by this weeks entry when it goes up.
Much as Budiansky's Blaster has been likened to Wolverine, I think that Prowl, when written properly, is a lot like Cyclops, at least how Cyclops had been written up to and including the introduction of the Transformers. Master strategist? Check. Uptight? Check. Not exactly Mr. Popularity? Check.
I’ve drawn the same comparison before but not in praise of it. Between Cyclops/Wolverine, Prowl/Grimlock, and Raphael/Leonardo, there’s a definite problem with writers giving the more lawful-good character an unlikeable aspect so the badass character will have a foil. Prowl and the other characters I mentioned deserve better.
Stuart Webb. Who knows everything about nothing and not a lot about that.
