    If their comics hadn't gone downhill massively over the last few months, I'd probably be more excited about this.
    As it is, though... meh.

    I just can not get into the comicbooks, but figure some may be able to get happy over this.

    Hey all, I posted something in the news section cause I did not see this here... I mean, Alex Milne, Marcelo Matere, Nick Roche, E.J. Su, Robby Musso and more??? Not such a bad line up :cool: 

    In fact, I think this is the BIGGEST artist line up BotCon has ever seen. Pretty big news!

    Transformers: BotCon 2009!

    Hopefully somebody will ask them if they know what they're doing with the TF franchise. Unceremoniously dumping Furman's epic storyline in favor of a G1-ish reboot with All Hail Megatron, and now with a reported second reboot coming soon with a Bumblebee series, I have serious doubts as to whether or not they know what they're doing.

    While I expect people will ask, I'm not sure what kind of answer you'd expect...

    I'd be excited about this news if

    A. I was going to Botcon
    B. Don Figueroa was going to be there

    But since

    A. I'm not going to Botcon
    B. Don doesn't do Transformers anymore (or maybe IDW in general)

    I'm not that excited. The line-up is cool and at least Josh will be there. Good luck to those who are going and still excited by IDW's Transformers. Except for AHM, of course. :)

    Unfortunately I have to agree. They were doing so well TF-wise, but besides some of the recent Spotlights and some of the movie stuff, AHM really fucked it up for everyone.

    Well I would hope someone would use a little more tact than I did, but it would be nice if they were able to assure us that they had a plan. It seems like they're just winging it right now.

    I'm sure they would say they had a plan. I'm not sure I'd believe it though. I was really enjoying Furman's new take on the mythos, and AHM has really screwed it all up, imo. This is the first time since Dreamwave brought the comics back that I've considered dropping TF comics. The new stuff is just a huge letdown.

    Gawd, now I wish I was going! Joana being the only colorist makes the colorist representation look sad :(

    Josh just said further up he's going too.

    He's just not listed apparently.

    Well, I guess my point was, they'll almost certainly tell you that they've got a plan, but it's difficult for me to imagine them saying anything that would actually assure me that it was so....

    I'm not going so I could care less.

    I would have loved to finally get to meet Alex Milne, Marcello Matre, E.J. Su and yes, even Josh :D
