    While I like these little one off short stories, and think the art is great...I'm really wishing there was an overall story arch to the series.

    The 1st story with Optimus was OK, and the 2nd story was pretty funny...but next month...Cant wait to get new character stories.

    Indeed...the inclusion of other characters will be something nice. I liked the first part of this issue but the second story just bored me.

    I loved Swindle's story.

    Would someone mind summarizing the two stories? All I know is that Lugnut is punching a wall on the cover.

    That Swindle story reminded me of an old cartoon. Warner Bros maybe? Or a Tom & Jerry?

    The Swindle story was definately a parody of "The Sneetches" by Dr. Seuss.

    Which is awesome.

    How many issues will be in this Animated Series? Is it ongoing or a limited series?

    Six issues, I think. Next one is the last, for the time being. Should be Jetfire & Jetstorm focused.

    Nice enough issue, but the outcomes to both stories were entirely predictable after the first 2 pages-- that was my biggest beef.

    More Blitzwing & Lugnut infighting is always a good thing, though.

    I haven't picked mine up yet but I look forward to doing so this weekend. I have been enjoying the way the issues blend with and add to the show.

    My compliments to Boo. I don't know how he figured out how to give Lugnut facial expressions but it worked brilliantly! And as for Dario, great work making Megatron's alt mode look... really cool!

    I loved how he played them both.

    I still love Blitzwing's face when he said "Impressive", the best "Decepticon oriented story" so far IMO.

    The Optimus story just seemed really short to me.
    Although Ultra Magnus was in it, so that makes it awesome.

    Who is Boo? It's not our Boo, is it?

    Finally got around to reading this, as I had to wait a month to get a late copy of #4.

    This comic is great. I hope it goes beyond 6 issues. It is a perfect compliment to the TV series, and my favorite TF comic right now, and I read all of them.

    I don't know if it's the same guy. Even the TF Wiki is at a loss for info on the artist.

    ...Do you mean me? Nope, I'm not TheBoo. If I had known of him, I wouldn't have given myself this username. I think I'll change it, 'cause I draw too, and I don't want to confuse people.
