    Son of a... Fwiffo, I was just in the middle of posting this... you magnificant thought stealing bastard you.:p 

    Anyways, as I said over at the AllSpark... despite all the crap, mistakes, my bitching and whining... I think I still love TF comics too much to ever actually quit. But I was so close to actually convincing myself that Continuum was to be my last because of the travesty it turned out to be. *sigh* I'm at TF comic addict.:( 

    Still hate the faces, totally and completely, but the rest of the art isn't terrible. Not my favourite, it's not Roche or Su, but it'll probably grow on me. Too bad the faces suck...

    This is now, what exactly half the comic released for free? Really trying to get people interested...

    Looks pretty decent to me. Again, the faces are the big drawback IMO, but everything else seems promising.

    Now that's more like it. But was Breakdown really worth it? Seems a tad out of character for the usually super logical Prowl.

    Prowl seems REALLY OOC in this

    Edit: But then again prowls character has been jumping around all over the place latley so this is nothing new.

    I had a discussion last night with someone about the mouths, and I made a startling discovery!

    The faces of the Transformers are so iconic, when they change, it's like someone you know changing their face. Prowl may look like Prowl, but his face ... it's different, and you lose that same sense of recognition and even emotion from it.

    That's why I can't stand behind this new look, face-wise, at least. I can deal with the rest, but the faces I just cannot deal with. You lose too much emotion with those simple changes, so much that you didn't even notice until they changed.

    Prowl's acting like Ratchet in Infiltration is what he's doing. And Ratchet pissed him off...

    Not the same, this Breakdown obviously uses the same transformation scheme (albeit with a couple liberties) as Classics Sunstreaker/Sideswipe. Its really obvious in the legs.

    I do agree that the faces are the part I'm the most dubious about with the book.

    However, I DO like the redesigns on the bodies. Prowl and Breakdown look great.

    This behaviour on Prowl's part is out of character. Back in Infiltration, Prowl was the one who chewed out Ratchet for risking their operation by trying to save others,,, then again, this is IDW. Continuity and consistency is not a rule for them, but a suggestion.

    I had such high hopes for this... looks like another TF charicter and devlopment have been dumped out the window again.

    This looks like a great, emotional plot. Once again, IDW does a great job with the TF comics.

    Aside from Prowl acting completely unlike himself(maybe Prime ordered it to be opposite day for the Autobots?) that's pretty good. I can kinda deal with the Anti-Transformers suits since the humans have had 3 years to develop this technology which they need to fight off the Transformers. Breakdown's design is awesome, just a shame he's no more than cannon fodder.

    While looking a little better I still have no interest in the comics anymore, too little too late IDW.

    So..the white strips in their mouths..are they teeth? Are they metal sheets? Are they the piano keys bars Prime has in the movie that produce his voice?...I still don't get what Mr Figueroa was going for, and I think the colorist was equally confused...
