    Now that these two prequel comics have finished, what are your thoughts on them both?

    For me, I think they were both great. Defiance really shed some light into the civil war and Alliance has me hyped up even more for ROTF. Also, I actually liked Alliance more, it was very interesting.

    I think I enjoyed Defiance more than Alliance... it was a bit more Historic and Gripping than Allaince.
    Although I did enjoy Alliance in some cases.

    I def loved them both probably equally. Like starscream said Defiance was more historic and i really liked that element. But all things considered i like them both so much ive read each issue like 3 time through lol. Also nice avatar a.g.e, nizzi did some awesome cover shots.

    I liked Alliance more at first, but it just fizzled out. The "scouts" and Wreckage should've had more screen time IMO, along with the Landmine drones, but that wasn't the point of the series I guess.

    Defiance went from "eh..." to fantastic, a lot to take in those last few pages, but that's alright, can't wait to see what IDW does movie-wise post ROTF.

    Defiance was definitely more interesting IMO

    i love backstory so it was neat to see all of that delved into

    Alliance was kinda eh. neat to see how some stuff got started like the humans workin with the autobots but a lot of the toy chars and stuff kinda went down too easy. the story kinda rushed to the end

    all in all i enjoy it though. its got me hyped for the movie

    I've only read Alliance so far, but after the amazing Reign of Starscream I wasn't too thrilled with it. It served its purpose of connecting the two films and explaining some basic plot points, but it felt rushed and just felt like things were happening without any themes, etc. RoS definitely had tons more character and some good themes; I liked Alliance best when Starscream actually showed up.

    I liked both comics, but Defiance was more fun. Seeing how the war started, as well as the original bodies of the TFs was quite cool.

    Thanks bro, this was one of my favourites, it's a shame it wasn't the final cover.

    Alliance 5/10 - fills in some of the story at the end of TF1 and between TF1 and TF2. Aliance should really be read in Conjunction with TROS.

    Defiance 9/10 - good backstory, and also retcons a plausable reason why the allspark ended up on earth.

    Alliance was pretty meh....until #4.

    I found Defiance much more enjoyable. I loved getting the backstory of the war and seeing how the origins of the movie bots differs from previous TF incarnations.
