    Ok so since MTMTE #23 is out tomorrow and RiD #23 in about a week I think that instead of having two separate threads for all these comic is going to be confusing and chaotic since they are in fact a literal crossover where everything is mixed up.

    So I purpose a big Storyline mega thread where we discuss both MTMTE and RID issues until this thing is done.

    Let's see how it goes.

    Seconded! We're getting the story at a breakneck pace and to divide discussion among two (or three, or four, or twelve) separate threads will just be confusing for all.

    I'd personally rather have individual threads so people who are slow in getting new issues are not inadvertantly spoiled by events from later parts they've not got around to yet.

    I say, let's have both - issue discussion threads for the parts, and this for the wider story arc.

    I agree on separate threads. Sometimes you want to talk about the specific art in an issue, etc. It's not that hard to keep track of. Just title the threads "MTMTE 23 - Dark Cybertron #2" or something.

    But I'll survive either way.

    Yeah, I'd rather have separate discussion threads for each issue, too.

    We'll just have to see how this goes. I understand the arguments for it, but in my experience "Megathreads" become too large and unweildy, discouraging newcomers.

    Of cours for some, that last may be a feature, not a bug.

    So guys, MTMTE 23 came out. Reading through it now.

    Lemme just say one thing (Possibly big spoiler, so don't mouse over the spoiler if you haven't read it yet):

    NIGHTBEAT!!!

    Ok, that was a lot better than the first issue.

    The slower pace helped.

    I think Starscream was shitting bricks.

    I think so as well. Separate discussion threads.

    Just finished part 2.

    That was better than Part 1 story wise. As more actually happened and the story moved forward more dynamically. I liked seeing the return of Scoop and another long abscent "old friend".



    On the down side, the constant switching of art styles really did not work for me. The changing of styles with every scene change was just distractingly jarring.


    -ZacWilliam, just too many cooks in the kitchen art wise, but I'm interested in where the story will go now that it's started to get some traction.

    Good read. Story is taking shape.

    Something is for sure going to happen to Cyclonus.

    Orion taking off his faceplate to have a drink of Energon in Swerves bar, with Magnus and Rodimus, fantastic. Swerve taking a picture, PRICELESS.

    That actually totally caught me off guard at first. I thought it was the artist's choice/error to draw him without the plate. Then it hit me, he's having a DRINK.

    And that's classic Swerve right there, perfect.

    Scoop's zealotry is starting to creep me out, lol. Hope he has a storyline with some good payoff cause he's hard to like. I have no problem with Starscream throwing him under the bus at this point.

    JAZZ GOT LINES!

    Also we had an idea HE was coming back but hnngh so ready for this.

    Also the Dead Universe dying is fantastic. I'd love this crossover to totally wrap it up.

    Well, Scoop's role at this point seems to be "the one guy who has actually read the prophecy covering current events."

    Kinda an important role there.

    ^ That's a pretty thankless role. At least as far as my personal enjoyment.

    I like Scoop fine. He's upbeat and cheerful which is a plus. And while yes he's a bit convicted spiritually he's not blind in that faith, he actually has researched the prophesy and has a decently good reason to believe that a) it's happening and b) Starscream is important to "it."


    -ZacWilliam, other than Shockwave he honestly may be the most on top of things character in the story right now.
