Just wanted to let everyone know, that the forum registration is temporarily on hold. We have been inundated with spam bots for the last few days. Clearly an exploit has been found in the forum software and needs to be patched.
So while the Techno-Vipers get to work, we have suspended the registration pf any new accounts for now. This should be resolved in the next day or two, depending on available time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but it is a necessary one to put a stop to the spam.
Current members are still able to login and take part, just no new accounts.
Thanks for your patience in the matter.

Hmmm…not sure how I feel about this, but IDW Publishing has announced a new Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover ongoing series. This is a stand-alone series that will explore the intriguing encounter between these two distinct properties. It will be written by Transformers veteran John Barber with art by Tom Scioli (Godland, American Barbarian). I’m a fan of both properties, but still not sure how I feel about these two being mixed together. I’m sure there are many fans of both that will really enjoy it and I suppose this is for them. If that is you, then look for this series in comic shops next summer. You can check out the press release for this announcement and a tiny piece of Transformers/G.I. Joe art below. (Source: IDW)
