score: 6.5 out of 10

Titan Transformers UK issue 4.2, December 2011

"Don't mention the war."

Titan Transformers UK issue 4.2, December 2011.

Script: Robin Etherington
Art: Horacio Domingues
Colour: Perayra Nestor
Lettering: ComicCraft

Allright, this review's a bit late but beter late than never, right ?

I recieved this comic by post sometime last november and I will get right into it!

Free gifts:
- Transformers Prime missile launcher. Yay!(sarcasm) another foam missile to be launched from a squeeze activating plastic tube variation, but then again I am not the main demographic and I can imagine the kids loving this. I received by mistake another copy of issue 4.1 and gave it to my nephews and they were both very happy with it.

This is a Transformers Prime comic.
Want proof?
A full cover featuring PRIME promo art of Megatron with a firery background

The Index page isn't really that exciting.....so I'll skip that !

On Page 04, we get an introduction to the PRIME human characters, a missing piece puzzle and on Page 07 the the strip begins.

"War Story"
Scripting by Etherington and surprisingly strong art by Domingues, Sari is badgering Prime for a juicy tale about Megatron, prevebly of him going postal or ape as she calls it. It's not quite what she gets.

The strip is interrupted on Page 11 by a psp ad and part 2 of the PRIME episode guide, reviewing Darkness rising part 2. Also a micro quiz:
1 Who becomes a zombie robot ?
-Bulkhead
-Cliffjumper
-Arcee
2 Which Autobot smashes a piece of Ratchet's equipment ?
-Optimus
-Megatron
-Bulkhead
3 Who blows up the energon mine ?
-Starscream
-Megatron
-Optimus
Thankfully, the answers are on the same page ;) followed on the next page by a 'game of the goose' style board game and, I have to say, an excellent TFPrime Megatron poster.

Page 18 has a competition to win the Dark of the Moon dvd and page 19 has a Kre-o transformers competition

Again followed by 2 competitions to win, the Transformers UK 2012 Annual and Mars-The Ultimate adventure book !

Another puzzle on Page 22 but Page 23 is part 2 of the strip! Prime reveals that Megatron's actions had him so distracted that Megatron manages to rescue his squad and detonate a bomb with repercussions for Optimus Prime.

followed by the letterpages, hosted by Megamouth Megatron (PRIME version) with a little help from Arcee (also PRIME version).

Starscream's wordsearch is on Page 30 with next issue and kre-o ads on Pages 31 and 32

Conclusion: I really liked the strip, unexpected character development for Megatron which I think is rarely seen in a kids comic.

score: 7 out of 10

Books Galore 2 !

Food for bookworms....

I received a package from, again, DeSlegte bookshops, now containing:


Isaac Asimov's Robot City part 01: Odyssee by Michael P. Kube-McDowell

Title: Odyssee (Originally Odyssey)
Published in Holland: 1994 (Originally published: 1985)
Publisher: Meulenhoff

A man without memory stranded is on a chilling cold asteroid . His only chance to survive is connect with a robot colony on the verge of destroying itself.

The man named Derec, and his search for his past leads him to the farthest reaches of the universe: the spaceship to the relentless alien Aranimas, the mysterious bureaucracy Station Rockcliffe and the infinite emptiness of Perihelion.

Until he finally ends up in a city different from all other cities he has ever known. A futuristic world populated by robots and controlled by a technology that no one ever imagined it could be ... Robot City.

and:

Isaac Asimov's Robot City part 02: Moordzaken by Mike McQuay

Title: Moordzaken (Originally Suspicion)
Published in Holland: 1995 (Originally published: 1987)
Publisher: Meulenhoff

Derec, a man without memory, becomes adrift in a world populated almost exclusively by robots, driven by a technology that no one ever thought possible: Robot City.

The main guidelines for the residents of Robot City are the Three Laws of Robotics rational, responsibly designed by engineers and inserted. But the behavior of the robots is not always rational.

That man is Derec painfully clear when he is accused is informed of a murder he may have simply not committed. Unfortunately for him, the robot laws are relentless ...

As you might imagine they are both in dutch language since I am dutch but I am really pleased to have the serie complete ! Book 1 was missing for several years and is in fact hard to come by. Book 2 not so much but it is a replacement since my old copy has water damage. As another note the complete serie is been reported to be on sale for € 90 (USD 123,75)

on to series 2 !!

thanks to google translate and boekbeschrijvingen.nl for making this enrty easier.

Books Galore !

Hi,

Spent the previous sunday in Zwolle where I visited DeSlegte, a bookstore, and they had some cool stuff !

First,

101 SciFi movies by Steven Jay Schneider.



A fun little factoid book covering diverse films fromm 1900-2006 for example: Robocop, Westworld but also some french and italian films as La Decima Vittima (10th victim)









Secondly,


Foundation and Chaos by Greg Bear

A hardcover edition of the so-called 'second foundation' trilogy. I have the trilogy in dutch language that I bought straight from the local bookshop but now I've found an english edition of part 2 of the trilogy.

Of course never as good as the regular foundation series but still very very good.
