    Too many humans and not enough Transformers in Infiltration. Furman himself admits it!

    Very nice. Possibly my favorite line ever, "Just to reiterate... NO... HUMANS... IN... STORMBRINGER..." Good stuff.

    Hopefully this will keep enough people quiet that Infiltration's VERY good balence of disguise and presence of humans can be retained in Escalation.

    What he said was a politer-worded form of "we're catering to the impatient as well as those who enjoy / are warming to a non-everything-splodey first arc" -- but this seems a decent release schedule as long as Infiltration breaks at a sensible point and Escalation builds upon Stormbringer.

    Neat colours too, and it seems Thunderwing isn't actually on fire, just standing/walking in it. Yay -- meaningful story rather than fanwank!

    Humans as a species are fine, but the three in Infiltration can go squish as far as I'm concerned.

    Hopefully Sunstreaker can drum up some 'friendly fire' if the Autobots ever come up from the bottom of the lake. That mute button bit was classic.

    The remaining cast of characters ain't bad, either.

    Jetfire almost looks like a seeker in this incarnation. VERY happy with Don's work, as always!

    Technobots?! YAY! TECHNOBOTS! :thumb 

    Always loved the Technobots!

    This mini looks very interesting. Always loved Furman stories with Thunderwing and Bludgeon. :p

    Awesome! Looks like Don gives Jetfire a helmet so he can look like G1 Jetfire.

    *looks at VF-1S Ichijo*

    F'n Awesome!

    while the art kicks butt and the story seems interesting, I'm kind of disappointed with character choices. I can't say that there's anyone one on that list that I'm a diehard fan of.

    That and I am somewhat disappointed with the possible absense of Unicron in the IDW continuity. While, yes, please do avoid his useage right now, I'd like to see a gradual buildup to his introduction and maybe a new take on him.

    Personally I get tired of seeing the same popular characters in mutiple save-the-universe story arcs. The use of Technobots, Jetfire and other seems like good move. Will have to wait and see!

    Razorclaw? Does that mean Predaking will be in it too?
