I recently discovered that Jae Lee drew a Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover, and wondering if it's worth tracking down. Anyone?

I remember digging it at the time, but I couldn't give you a plot summary these days.  Truthfully a Trans/Joe crossover would get my money, but adding Jae Lee would get me to pay double.

Reading all the Valiant titles. Archer and Armstrong and Quantum and Wood are my top two from them right now, but everything coming from them is really good. Shadowman is the only one that isn't on the top of my to read pile but I bet that will change after the creative changes with issue 13.

Yes!  I'm looking forward to Eternal Warrior next week, but A&A has been the best book by far to date.  A mix of humor, drama, and action?  Sold every time.

Eternal Warrior #1 was pretty good as first issues go. I'll be getting the next one.

Kings Watch #1 was also pretty good as first issues go. I don't have a lot of attachment to the characters, but I did watch the old Defenders of the Earth cartoons. Good set up so far.

Is it as good as when Barry Smith was doing it?

It's... possible that I never read that.  I actually didn't get into Valiant much back in the day.  When I hit the lotto I plan to get the old stuff in digital.

I was never into Valiant in the day either. From what I've read of the digital issues, the difference is that the modern takes are a much more decompressed versions of the past, but with a hell of a lot of punch.

I was there from the beginning and it was fun stuff. Then it became Acclaim and wasn't as much fun....then there was the relaunch under Acclaim and I left.

A lot of the non-mainstream titles ended up dying without a proper finish.  I'm re-reading a bunch of 90's Image stuff and it almost all got yanked without a real ending.

I suspect that's because they knew they could put out whatever crap they wanted and it'd guarantee 500,000 copies for the first issue. Just look at all Liefeld's variations of the same thing such as Bloodstrike, Brigade, etc.

Actually it was a lot of Liefeld stuff that I was re-reading.  Grin  He's the absolute king of not finishing a project, which to me is far more damning than complaints about his artistic skills.  I think it was a trend in general though that books got yanked without closure due to financial/business snafus.

...and I guess once sales started dropping by issue #3 or #4 you could just scrap it and move the team on to the next #1.

I somehow acquired a copy of Superman: Distant Fires Elseworlds one shot. It turned up in a box, and I hadn't read it.....

So I did. It wan't my thing. Not the worst Elseworlds story, but the end was horrid.

Has anyone read the "Attack on Titan" manga yet? I had seen Good Smile Company release a Nendoroid set with the Colossus Titan figure and couldn't quite make head or tail of it. And then while trawling through the Kinokuniya manga section looking for Basilisk which someone had recommended i came across the English translation of AoT. Having read Vol. 1 to 8 now, i can say i am pretty well hooked. It helps that i managed to get the complete anime set as well so while waiting for the remaining English volumes to come out i can finish the whole series.

Don't know that one Fess. Thanks for the recommend though.

I've been reading the revamped Aliens and Predator stuff from Dark Horse. So far it's been pretty good. It ties into prometheus which I'm not reading as it's not mandatory. Alien is interesting as they're on the Prometheus planet fending off Aliens.

Aliens vs Predator is good stuff and the art by Ariel Olivetti is great to look at.
