    I think I'm starting to like this whole bigger universe thing.

    Honestly, it has a TON of potential. It's not like every character is going to cross over into ever other title all of the time. I hope they can keep the continuity in check, and it doesn't turn into a big ole' mess like mainstream superhero universes.

    Yep. It looks like, given his triple-changing, he's going to be used to make MASK's transforming vehicles.

    Yeah, Ossio's art is pretty great. I'd like to see him do more for IDW after this.

    As I said in the Revolution thread, the art is great, but the Joes really didn't think their attack through.

    Holy shit, an event comic not ruined by Livio artwork and it actually seemed well written. IDW is learning!

    wow, that was info-dump-a-licious.

    ...and just as clunky as i figured it'd be trying to shoe-horn IDWs existing Joe continuity into it's TF continuity ~ All Hail Megatron (where New York and many other major cities... and apparently a BILLION people are wiped out) and GIJoe vol. 3 (where they were headquartered in New York) make that fundamentally impossible.

    They really should have wrapped up the existing stories and done a full-scale, line-wide re-launch, or at the very least divorced the non-TF titles from their continuity (easy for G.I. Joe since that story more-or-less had come to a close) and relaunched them within the ongoing IDW TF-verse.

    FYI, those first eight pages were originally back-ups that are currently running through a bunch of IDW's books, with the whole purpose for their existence being to serve as info-dumps rather than the mini itself having to spend time on this stuff.

    Also, Micronauts and ROM only just started and were quite clearly set up as being part of this since day 1, so I don't see much reason to have relaunched them in any way.

    Don't believe Prime's lies. We already know what happens when the lower classes dare to become something more than the objects of his charity and platitudes and instead try to rule themselves without him. Decepticons forever!

    They got Cullen Bunn on this?

    internal screams of joy

    He's one of my personal favorite writers. I've very excited to see what he contributes to IDW.

    He's been writing Micronauts, which I've enjoyed a lot.
