Hello. My name is Matthew cashel. I work in Earl childhood special-Ed and attempt to write comics on the side. My last book with a real publisher was paradigm. But,eventually,it was cancelled due to poor ales. I'm not a super hero guy but I am a huge fan of morrison's the invisibles, hama's g I Joe and furman's uk work on the transformers. I buy the monthlies of the transformers but my true love is the IDw collections. I like having it all in one place and I adore seeing the amazing artwork oversized. I am a Joe fan first, but with Roberts and barber steering the transformer ship, that might soon change. I'm coming up on my 37'th b-day and I grew up on g I Joe and the transformers. I was and am a huge furman fan so the uk issues meant a lot to me. I missed out on the first season of tf because my local cable didn't run it but I saw the last half of the second season shows as my bus dropped me off at that time. I saw the transformers:animated movie and became a real fan. I only own two transformers: grimlock and prowl because joes were so much cheaper. So I love what I've read concerning the reboot of the transformers' mythos. I have some continuity stuff that continues to bother me but I have to say this version beats out the uk's so far. As long as you keep going with the IDw collection hardcovers, you have a fan in me. I look forward to really getting to know all of you. You seem a great deal nicer than many messageboard members elsewhere. Politeness counts and it is a big part of what drew me to these boards. That and your passion. Nothing like passionate fans to excite a newbie. But, please, cut me some slack; I'm one of those that liked buster in marvel's run and verity in idw's. It may not be a popular opinion but I'll learn! Thanks everyone! Roll out!
Cobra is the allegorical " transparent administration" that has already won the war. They control the media- education- public opinion- the very govt. Itself. G.I. Joe is theatre and cannot win a p.c. battle lost years ago. Ask mainframe.
