IDW Revolution

I think the last time I bought a comic book ,a contemporary comic book with some sort of relevancy,Ronald Reagan  was president.I came close to picking up the new Secret Wars series that released in 2015.Oh ,and the new DC 52 stuff ,too.But I never pulled the trigger on either.I had been out of the loop for so long.Couple that with the 4 dollar price tag per comic and the only thing they got out of me was a disinterested "Nah,I'll pass." Now,recently I had been hearing talk about a merger of popular 80's toy franchises ,coming together for a big screen debut.MASK,G.I. Joe ,Transformers,Micronauts, ROM and I believe Visionaries made the cut as well.This literally blew the drawers off  of me!This Is something I have been wanting to happen since I began collecting action figures.In fact one of the reasons why I started to collect 3 3/4 was because so many different lines/characters were available ,and I would be able to mix and match my figures like never before!I have always wanted to see G.I. Joe and Transformers together on the big screen.As far as the movie goes,I'm not sure when they plan on releasing  or If they are going to  release It at all.Then I found out about IDW's Revolution.Hence,my very first set of comic books,delivered!

Nicely packaged and It only took a month for them to arrive.I still gave the seller positive feedback seeing as how everything arrived well wrapped and  In great shape .



Things got hectic quickly when browsing online for these books because of  all the different covers.I guess these are considered variants (please forgive my comic noobness).I didn't realize this at first though.I went for the coolest looking number 1 issue,imo,  (sub cover d) Scarlett and Optimus !All of the (sub cover -d's) have different pairings of action figures on the cover. 


Issue number 2  (sub cover b) has a bunch of different characters relevant to the comic apparently running towards something?The bathroom maybe?


Here's the rundown on what you can expect within the pages of  Revolution!I haven't read these yet ,but I'm excited.The cool thing Is that there are only 5 issues .I'm guessing there will be  spin offs  of all the participating franchises. I've got issue number 3 and 4 on the way  and I don't think 5 Is out yet.Will this give me the push I needed to start collecting again?Maybe so,maybe no.At the very least I got a post out of It ;)

  3. Yeah,I'm not sure If I'll grab anymore after this set of 5.ROM might be worth checking out.I just really want them to release figures based on the series.

    1. So far It's been a decent read.Nothing monumental besides the fact that everyone's there.There are some deaths in the book,but I won't go on to avoid spoiling It for anyone.
