Also, because of some Transformers-related posts on GooglePlus, I've become interested in two ongoing IDW comics series:
- Transformers: Robots In Disguise; and
- Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye
primarily because there's a certain depth to the setting, a greying of the sides of the Cybertronian war (which has ended for now), and some fantastic, surprising, and shocking characterization of some Autobots and Decepticons that have become my favorites. The humor, and occasional light-hearted stories make a fine counterpoint to the dark past of Cybertron and the surprising history of some well-known heroes and villains.
I particularly liked the spotlight on Ratchet in this issue:
Lastly, I'm working on a Steampunk / Wuxia RPG ruleset -- tinkering with FUDGE, FATE, and (gasp) Fuzion for this Frankenstein system. It means I've been on a steady diet of Wuxia films. The big winners have been Wu Xia (with Donnie Yen and Takeshi Kaneshiro) and Reign of Assassins (with Michelle Yeoh).
Of course, your mileage and taste may differ.
