    Wow.

    Sorry, but the art (Wildman surprisingly) looks amateur. With very ... bland colors, and the story doesn't quite make any sense.

    Definite pass.

    I was hoping for art much more along the lines of the previous Joe VS TF book that Don drew, it had nice colors as well. This, though it's too early to judge the story, is hard to look at with how below average the art is.

    I don't think Don has drawn any GI JOE vs. TF books, although I'm all for it. :)  This book does look like it needs some work art-wise though. :(

    Poor Skids still gets no respect, appears in one panel and punched out in the next... I'm betting Prowl wasn't even asking who was attacking, he probably asked who he was.

    i agree for the most part

    although the panel with the close up of prowls face is fantastic. the rest. meh.. not impressed

    i only read the last series for Joe Ng's artwork, other than that these TF/Joe titles do absolutely nothing for me.

    The damage on skids reminds me alot of the old Marvel G1 comics. Looking forwards to this.

    Well, just to be contrarie, I rather like the look of this.
    Prime, Duke and Hawk off to Tibet, the traditional centre of mystic learnings on Earth.

    When is this released again?

    I think it looks GREAT! They're purposefully going for the weird and obscure stuff for both Joe and TF and that's got me sold right there.

    Wildman's art IS a bit loose and sketchy on the smaller figures/pannels, but anything midsized and above is absolutely GORGEOUS. That final page rocks.

    I think this is gonna be a lot of fun and a great flashback to the old Marvel comic days. Cannot wait to own this. :)

    This might be the first DD Joe/TF book I pick up rather than skim... it's back to being four issues, then?

    That kinda looks awful. I've just downloaded all the Transformer comics and show stuff, so I can finally see some of this storyline, and the arts really been hit or miss through out all of it. This stuff here is kinda washed. How many more stories are they gonna pull off with these 2 shows?

    Yeah, I think I'll steer clear of this one. It just got too ridiculous for me after the last TF/Joe crossover.

    Gotta agree on the art, too. Pass.

    Man, the art in that looks REALLY old-school. The TFs look just like the 80's comic (same artist right?)

    I am willing to give it a go.
    I like Wildman's work, although I loved Udon's lines in the last book.

    You mean the Cobra-la?
    I didn't remember that they were aliens. I thought they were like a "lost race" or something.
    I think the Cobra-la rule, but even in this out-of-continuity crossover, I do not want Cobra Commander to be some blue skinned dude with eyeballs all over his face.

    Now, if he turned into a snake during this book, I would be okay with that.

    Once a man...
