Monster Fun

So with the announcement that they are indeed making a new American-made GODZILLA movie, I thought it would be funny to see if I could get 50 people to say that I'd play the part of Godzilla well. It all started as a joke, but now it's over 130 members so I said, what the hell, why not keep it going?

So if you're on the Book of Faces, please drop by and join up! It's all for fun, but you never know what could happen if enough people get a crazy idea. Here's the group link:

I'll bet 50 people think Chris Mowry should play Godzilla in the new movie.

Here's some artwork that has been created for the event, too. The tall one is by Lauren Baker and the wider one is by Josh Perez. Both are awesome... thanks!

Wanted to take the opportunity to let you know that (for most of us) TRANSFORMERS: LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS #3 is on sale tomorrow (March 24)! Nick and James have really been wowing just about everyone, so make sure you pick this one up. I threw this thing together based on an idea Nick had, so as you can see, one of them isn't going to see Page 22.

So feel free to repost this image, and pass it along to as many people as you can. But most importantly, do yourself a favor and BUY THIS BOOK!

It was brought to my attention that I have comics available for the PSP. Wow, working at the company and I find out from a fan. Regardless, they are available for purchase through the PlayStation Comics site at

So far, there are the four issues of ALLIANCE and DEFIANCE (which this kick-ass image from Dan Khanna is from), as well as TALES OF THE FALLEN #1 which was just released this week.

But what about REIGN OF STARSCREAM, you may ask? Well, for the past two weeks, I've been recording commentary for each issue. They'll be available soon, issue-by-issue. So far we've recorded commentary for the first two issues and it's not only me that blabbing in your ear. We've also got series artist Alex Milne and colorist Josh Perez sharing their thoughts and comments about the series for you, too. So although you may have read the comments in the trade paperback, there are definitely some new tidbits you might find interesting. Plus, just having Alex and Josh able to talk about things makes it worth the purchase.

I'll let you know when REIGN is available, but in the meantime, check out the other titles. Thanks!

Hello, all. I wanted to post a little info for you regarding Arcee and Flatline. For one, thanks for the reaction to Flatline. It's good to hear. Also, there are a few people that I need to post their images. One was a guy who had a very similar idea and it's only fair that his idea is seen as well. Also, there's a Boo sketch, and a really fun Josh Burcham piece, too.

But this brings me to the title of this post... unused movie universe idea #1 - ARCEE IN ALLIANCE.

As you may (or may not) know, Arcee left to find Starscream in the last issue of REIGN OF STARSCREAM. What was originally supposed to happen in ALLIANCE, was that Arcee is caught in a fight on Earth between Starscream and Wreckage. Issue #2's fight in Alliance was supposed to be Issue #4, with Arcee being the casualty of war on the Autobot side of things. Sector Seven (what's left of them) joins the fight with the Autobots and takes out Starscream (sending him fleeing into space in search of a crashed ship capable of holding Decepticon soldiers). In the battle, though, Arcee is killed... actually blown into three pieces.

With the battle ended, Optimus Prime is distraught. He feels that his war and his decisions have pushed feelings of mistrust on the humans. The humans want the Allspark fragment Prime took from Megatron's body, but when the humans offer to restore Arcee, that's when Prime begins to realize that the humans are far more intelligent than the Autobots have known.

Arcee's remains are taken to the Hoover Dam facility. You'll remember that the facility housed "the box" before. This was the small operating bay that Agent Simmons put the cell phone in. They choose to disconnect the delivery devices that send the Allspark radiation into the box, and this leaves the room as one giant box, if you will. Arcee's remains are brought into the room and a wave of replicated radiation is sent into the room. Arcee is restored, but as three separate robots, each with no clue as to who they are or what has happened.

The Autobots are shocked that the humans are capable of doing this, basically creating lifeforms on their own, without the use of the Allspark. Quite displeased, Optimus Prime offers the humans a most puzzling offer. He will give them the Allspark shard, if they destroy the technology he has just witnessed. The human forces agree and the facility is shut down. The Allspark shard goes to Diego Garcia, and the NEST forces are formed.

This ending was rejected because the humans seemed to be a bit too powerful and had technology that seemed a bit too advanced for them. I agree, and I'm happy that a new origin for Arcee was able to be created, but I think this idea could have been pretty cool for the characters and definitely had made Alliance better.

So with that, I leave you with a question. I have a few things to talk about, ideas I had, reasons for some things, etc. But what would you rather have... blog postings, some Q&A threads, live chat room Q&A, or some YouTube postings? Let me know what you think and I'll get something going in the next few weeks.
