I feel like I am 15 years old again - waiting with great anticipation for a new issue of IDW's More Than Meets the Eye, like how back in the 90s I waited for new issues of Jim Lee's and Chris Claremont's 'Uncanny X-Men' (then later 'X-Men') or Todd McFarlane's 'Spider-Man', then 'Spawn' or Ghost Rider.
This happened on 16 October 2013.
Maz messaged me to say MTMTE was going to hit the comic shops that day. I went straight to my local comic shop in the evening and grabbed a copy of MTMTE #22. It's that exciting. It cannot wait. Seriously.
Went home after entertaining some friends.
Took a shower.
Brewed a cup of tea.
Laid out my 'bots - Rewind, Tailgate, Swerve and Skids (which is an Encore, who cares. He forgets, I forget).
Sat on my comfy leather chair.
Started reading MTMTE #22.
Read it all the way through. Pausing only in the middle to whip out my copy of Transformers: Generations to have a look at the Thunderclash toy.
Blown away. Again.
Like I said, I feel like I am 15 again.
James Roberts made me feel young. James is awesome.
