  1. Yeah more MTMTE!

    I've got the last couple MLP comics download, I just can't work up the want to to read them.

    Haven't read Gold and Bones yet, though I will I will! But funnily enough I just found out that one of my favorite bands (My Chemical Romance) has a comic book series as well, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.

    How is Monstrosity? I've thought about trying it but I haven't heard you say anything about it before so I'm not sure if I should bother.

    1. Heck yeah! More MTMTE is always fun! ...Or depressing. ...Or both. Dang it, Roberts!

      Meh, I just haven't had time to read MLP #8 yet. I really should get to that ASAP. And on another note, yeah, I'm still really excited that we'll be getting more from Katie Cook and Andy Price starting with issue #9.

      Yeah, I think now would be a great time to check out the House of Gold & Bones comic. It started out a bit slow, but things are definitely heating up as it's working its way towards the finale that we'll be seeing in issue #4. Also, I highly recommend listening to some of the music from the House of Gold & Bones albums too, because it really expands on what's going on and enhances the overall experience.
      Now then... My Chemical Romance has a comic series too now!? (Even after they broke up? ...That really sucked.) I'll definitely have to check this out! ...And BTW, Gerard and Mikey helped out with an episode of "The Aquabats! Super Show!" that's going to be airing later this month. So if you needed another reason to check out The Aquabats, there it is. XD

      As for Monstrosity, I actually haven't seen much of it yet, but I wasn't too impressed by what I HAVE seen... It's a sequel series to Autocracy, and is made by the same writers and artist. So yeah, it's not all that surprising that the quality of the two series is similar. That said, they provide some nice expansion to the IDW canon, I just didn't find the actual execution all that interesting.

    2. My Chemical Romance did what now!!!! (Does quick Google search) Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. Oops, I thought you already knew about that... Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. =/
