|Looong time no post
So, uh, why now?
Well, I write a monthly Transformers comic called 'More Than Meets The Eye' and I just wanted to tip you fellow fans the nod about a Hannon-y reference in the latest issue, #13, which is out today.
In this issue, for reasons that must remain unclear if this post is to run to less than 5,000 words, the main characters (who are on an epic space quest type thing) head to an entertainment planet for some R&R, but because of local anti-mechanoid feeling have to employ a range of human-looking holomatter avatars.
Anyway, on the cover and inside the book itself you'll see that one of the characters, Rewind, is sporting a t-shirt with 'The Divine Comedy' on it.
I almost called issue #1's story 'Tonight We Fly', but went for a Dexys reference instead; but I do put up a MTMTE playlist every month (I think someone maintains it on the US iTunes), and a few DC songs have appeared thereon.
And if you've read this far, and if you're a fan of comic books that have been compared to Doctor Who/Community/Firefly, why not give old MTMTE a try?
That's it from me. See you again when the next album comes out.
