Wallpaper: Autobot Mickey Mouse

July 17, 2013

narutaki_icon_4040 I’ve decided to start posting some of the wallpapers I make. They are just for my personal use, but I figure hey why not share! I’ll be sharing them in three standard sizes, but if anyone requests a specific ratio I can probably make it for you without much of a problem.

There is figure line which combines Transformers with Disney characters, as you might know this is irresistible to me. Their logo design for the Autobot symbol was a stroke of genius.

Free Comic Book Day: Mighty Heroes, Politicized Robots, and Boring Hookers

May 7, 2012

I have to admit that Free Comic Book Day kind of slipped my mind this time around and so I didn’t really have a plan as in previous years. New York City being New York City has quite a lot of festivities dedicated to the day, but instead of that I participated in a much purer essence and went to my most local comic book store in Brooklyn.

There was a three comic per person limit so it took a while to decide what to take a chance on. That also means we all strategically plotted out who would get what so as to have the biggest spread of stories to read. And in the spirit of the day I also bought some comic trades.

Free Comic Book Day’s main goal is to help entice new comic readers while at the same time giving current comic fans a sample of titles they might have otherwise ignored. It is also a good way of helping people back into comics if they have been away from the hobby for a while. For me it is usually an interesting, all be it limited, look at what is going on in the American comic industry. It is a regular smorgasbord of mainstream and independent comics. Theoretically everyone is putting their best foot forward in an effort to attract new readers so it is a good time to see what everyone is offering for the year. Sometimes comic publishers will have their B-teams work on the material for Free Comic Book Day but there is nothing I can do about that. I can only judge the comics on what I see. So any over positive or negative receptions might be merely based on the small sample I got here. But like so many other people this is often the most critical impression publishers can give me so I make judgements without reservation.

The Transformers Influence?

May 5, 2011

I recently started watching the giant robot series Brave Police J-Decker from the early 90′s. It is part of the Yuusha franchise which was started by Takara who make Transformers, you can see it pretty easily in the designs. But it got me thinking about the influence of Transformers on the robot genre. Or rather it made me wonder what exactly the influence has been.
