My two cents: Seeing Movie '86 as a kid made me understand mortality in a way I just hadn't before - especially since the Marvel UK comics ran with the fact that Prime died, got replaced and stayed dead. It cemented in my head the fact that time moves on, everyone eventually dies and new generations...

I thought it was brilliant - the culmination of an excellent season that continued building on its own mythology while giving nods to the past. The final battle felt suitably epic, the damage on Prime and Megs was a great touch, and to kill Screamer so coldly as well - fantastic. I think my only qui...

#22 - Hmmm, I seem to be drawn to comment whenever Cosmo White does a strip - and I'll say it again: his art is great. Perfect match for the movie designs and the intended audience. And he's one of the few TF artists whose humans don't look horrible or just horribly out of place. That said, the plot...

Issue #19 (I think, I don't have it handy... and Titan's home page are still advertising October's strip...) Interesting. On the one hand, last issues reveal of the surprise villain was pretty annoying - he really needs to be laid to rest for a while. But on the other hand, this month they actually ...

If Hasbro are celebrating all 25 years of the line by remaking various characters, what are our chances of getting a Classics 2 pretender - perhaps Bludgeon or Carnivac? Or how about a Beast Machines character? Cyclonus and Hound look great, and I find it nuts to think they're doing a Ravage cassett...

Issue 14.

Tracing the movie publicity stills? Twice within the same strip?

Not cool beans Titan.

Not cool beans at all.

While I already have the original Titan strips, I couldn't help picking up another copy - well a couple of copies - because GOOD GRAVY I'M IN PRINT!!!!! I've had a smile on my face all day since wandering into Forbidden Planet in London and seeing my Mosaic, The Passenger, get published. Totally. Aw...

I thought it was great - very silly, but also very funny. I agree about the pep talks - Christie might be a massively popular author in her field - and great at plot mechanics - but she's not what I'd call a genius. It's a bit like the Doctor arriving in Maine, 1999, and telling Stephen King what a ...

Likes: The artwork, in general is nice, with clean lines and some solid renderings of the movie style characters. The colours are good, and the story barrels along at a fairly solid pace. Dislikes: Some of the details in the art on the main strip - specifically the robot modes not matching the vehic...

I did a Mosaic, way back when - here . To be honest, it was a bit of a rush job, but got me into doing War Journal pages and then this competition, and I'm hoping it's given me enough momentum with drawing that I can carry over to my own work. I second the need for a Slarti Mosaic! And an AskShockwa...

The final should be really interesting. I just did a quick compare between the winners 1st and 2nd round entries, and it's clear that everyone upped their game, with better shading, positioning and use of shadows. Good stuff. Yeah, the arms are a nice touch, as is the blaster-blowing and the chap fl...

AskShockwave - cheers man! I'm a big fan of your style, particularly the details, like Hook's eyes and his reading lens. Deceptichops' piece looks like something from Dante's Inferno. Slarti - that's a damn shame because your sense of design and layout is amazing. By the way, does anyone know if it'...

I'm in the Arkeville Group. Man, it's really tough this time around, there's some amazing entries in each category.

Thanks to everyone who voted! The next round should be really interesting... I'm going to have to do more than throw in some wild animals. Damn you Attenborough, you can only take me so far!

Great, great art - everything feels grounded and realistic, which makes him perhaps the first artist to really gel with the movie aesthetic. The story, however, seems a bit strange - all of the soldiers are individually introduced and named, but then go on to play the role of generic soldiers. Perha...

Slarti, Housewife, great work! Slarti, that's the cover I wish I'd drawn! As for me, I'm in the Crankcase pile, with 37% at the mo. All good, but anybody any idea when the next round starts? I think voting is open for 2 weeks, so it should end sometime around next Monday. By the way, I love your Cr...

Well done Housewife2000 BTW. Hey man, thanks! I concur with the other comments on here - your Perceptor cover is brilliant. It's eye catching and does something different, and as Denyer says, it's very much in the style of Dustin Nguyen's beautifully stylistic covers from Wildcats 3.0 . Yeah of all...

Awesome - you picked me! Mine's the 'Tailgate vs Polar Bears' entry. There are some great entries, although I agree with Nevermore that a lot of people didn't try to nail the 'character', which considering it's supposed to be for a Spotlight issue, seems daft. That said, I didn't manage to get the '...

My reaction was 80% cringing, 20% mind boggling. Mind boggling at the total logic defying nonsense on screen. It's the same as last season, only everything's been turned up to 11: Hollyoaks does a panto version of the X Files. Marsters and Barrowman just about made it watchable because 90% of their ...
