It’s not every day that I get to interview a talent artist who should be working for one of the big comic book publishers, let alone be friends with one for over a decade. Tim Doyle is an underrated force in the world of comic book and pop culture art and has been running Nakatomi for almost seven years. He’s come a long way since working at Funny Papers, a now defunct comic book store that was located in Dobie Mall on the edge of campus at the University of Texas. I recently caught up with him after a couple of years at the Austin Comic Con in Austin, TX and talked shop and what’s on his current pull list. Read more...

  t 4   As everybody knows by now, this year is the year the 30th anniversary of the Transformers franchise. Lately, I have been pondering on what I can do to celebrate this anniversary. So far, fellow ENR colleague Rob Richardson did his part to celebrate by presenting his two Transformers-themed column features “Deceitfully Deceptive | Top Ten Decepticons” and “Top Ten Autobots | RobotiX Rolls Out” (which I and a number of others ENR colleagues helped out with).   Read more...

TurokIf any of you follow my Facebook feed, you’ll know I picked up my first Transformer figure to begin a collection that lost as a child. Robots in Disguise were my thing as a kid and I had an extensive collection, all of which were battered, bruised and played with lovingly for years. There honestly weren’t many I didn’t have – from Grimlock to Skywarp, I had a host of Autobots and Decepticons who probably battled each other more in my living room than they ever did on TV!

“Knightcon Star Cars & Heroes has always felt like a family, and that will always be the heart of the event; the rest is the shell.”   knightcon 2014 logoAs the world of genre television, comic books and science fiction and fantasy movies continue to reach further into the popular consciousness; conventions are attracting more and more exhibitors and fans year-on-year. They’re popping up worldwide. The United States was originally the forerunner of such an idea – hiring out a show hall specifically to bring fans of a particular medium together to celebrate what they love – but now most cities and towns internationally are putting on their own version. As well as being a place for like-minded individuals to gather and talk about what they enjoy the most, conventions also attract stars – whether they’re actors, creators or members of the production team – and allows them to connect with their fan-base on a much more personal scale.

Image converted using ifftoanyWe never need much of a reason to celebrate here at eXpertComics but this year marks a very special birthday for Optimus Prime, Megatron and the rest of the Transformers – in 2014 the reach the big 3-0! The team decided to get our heads together and bring a list of our favourite Robots in Disguise from both warring factions, starting this week with the noble Autobots and continuing in seven days with the cruel Decepticons. The histories of the characters are mostly taken from the Generation 1 TV series (a myriad of continuity could lead me to detailing each one at length and I’m sure you’d quickly get bored of that!). Please let us know if we featured your favourites and offer up ideas of your own in the comments section below! Read more...

Galvanizing the Good TF leadSo Transformers Age of Extinction had the biggest opening weekend of any movie this year and helmed the way over a pretty poor performing holiday weekend. Unfortunately, the fourth movie in the saga of the Robots in Disguise has been eaten alive by the critics, much like Unicron devouring Cybertron. Michael Bay has defended his franchise while the numbers alone make it a huge success, both in America and across the rest of the world. I’m not going to review the film – I’ll be completely honest, I’m far to biased. As a huge fan- boy, I was always going to love it regardless of what Bay and Co. assaulted me with. The ‘Bayhem’ itself is a glorious barrage of chaos as explosion seems to trigger explosion after explosion and mass destruction is the order of the day. I can see where the critics are coming from; it’s a three-hour, CGI attack with some really poor dialogue. Does that make it any less enjoyable? Not in my opinion because when Transformers Age of Extinction got it right, it REALLY got it right. Read more...

OPIt's #FanFilmFriday! And you know what that means! ENR has got some awesome fan film for everyone to check out! And if you went to see Transformers: Age of Extinction, or better yet....if you are sick of Michael Bay's style of Transformers movies and IGNORED Transformers: Age of Extinction (like I did), well, we have a special treat for you. Sometimes less is more. And this creative genius named Harris Loureiro has decided to make his own Transformers films in stop-motion animation...and it's nothing short of EPIC! Enjoy this fight scene featuring Optimus Prime in a battle against The Constructicons and, of course, Devastator! Roll out! Read more...

tf1As Michael Bay’s fourth installment in the Transformers franchise – Transformers: Age of Extinction – hits cinemas and powers to the top of the movie charts. Bay’s latest creation has gathered quite the critical backlash but has still managed to pull in audiences across America and China, racking up the highest grossing opening of a movie this year. Does this mean that the critics are wrong? Does it mean that this isn’t a bad movie? Probably not but I think it does signify that there is a lot to be said for the Transformers and their appeal as well as their ability to endure. It’s wish fulfillment, pure and simple. Who wouldn’t want to see their automobile transform into a twenty-foot, gun-toting robot? Or watch the greatest of all Autobots – Optimus Prime – ride a gigantic, robotic dinosaur into battle? The writing or acting may not be on the button but visually the imagery is right there to capture the imagination. Read more...
