    I haven't been following the IDW stories since I typically pick them up as TPBs and haven't bought any for a while. So, forgive me for asking but...

    What's up with Bumblebee and the cane?

    Huh. That page with Cyclonus has Cloudburst on the bottom panel (one of the Autobot Pretenders that defeated him and collapsed the portal to the Dead Universe). I assume they're going to have Cyclonus get his revenge on the Autobot Pretenders (who have probably been "de-powered" for story purposes).

    Sigh @ IDW coloring. Transformers might sell more than 10,100 copies a month if the art wasn't so poor.

    Dreamwave may have been Dreamwave, but Transformers were consistently among the best looking books on the shelves (particularly the War Withins and the ongoing).

    Now? The only major book with consistently worse art is Amazing Spider Man. And the thing is, it isn't the pencils for the most part (Heart of Darkness being the exception). It's the inks and coloring.

    In ongoing 12 (I think) while giving a speech to the humans, a Human under the influence of a kind of mind control by Soundwave over the radio, Shot Bumblebee with A gun that looks the exact same as megatrons alt mode and is in fact made from the remains of his old body.
    Then Bumblebee was fighting for his life the last few Issues, so i presume he gets repaired, but needs a bit of support for a while, The shot went straight through him.

    Good interview. I'm really excited for this "event", and some of the story potential - what's going on with Prowl? - seems exciting. The ongoing has steadily improved since #13, and I enjoyed "Infestation" a lot, so can't wait for "Chaos" and the alternating human stories.

    I know it's the trendy thing to bash IDW, but I like the direction this is all going in right now.

    Would it really kill IDW to just use the original design models? Or at least use an existing toy as a reference? To me, that's a huge turnoff having the characters not really look like themselves.

    This may have been asked before, but is Galvatron supposed to resemble Unicron so heavily on that cover? With the shadow placement, throw some yellow on him and it's a perfect fit.

    The purple guy at the top of the cover? No it isn't. Take a closer look, those are obviously Galvatron's horns, actually.


    Not to mention he's a centric part of the story and Megatron is currently a black bomber.
