    It's nice to know we've returned to Dreamwave levels of over-saturation.

    Josh Nizzi has had one heck of a year. His Long Haul fan art goes from fan art to real concept for the movie (plus whatever other concept art he's working on for them) and he's got a cover for the prequel comic.

    I wonder if any of these comics will be any good; I haven't been particularly impressed with IDW's stuff for a while now.

    I don't really like Wreckage being a Sector 7 weapon, I wonder if he'll be in the movie?

    Nice to see Wreckage in there. Maybe he'll make it into the movie, itself. That would be cool.

    Something tells me Starscream's gonna kill Wreckage after faking his death like that. "Double crossing human helper!" So is Destiny eight issues now or is it two stories in one?

    And it is, once again, some freaking AMAZING art. That's going down as one of the best TF comic covers ever for me.

    Have you read Reign of Starscream? I was VERY impressed with that-- it's IDW's best TF miniseries to date, IMO. I'd highly recommend you pick it up if you haven't read it yet.

    There have been a lot of TF comics, but I think that's because of their new "5-issue miniseries" rule compared with their old 4-issue role. Most months we've got 3 TF comics (I don't count the reprints as new stuff), but occasionally, like last month and, apparently, December, we've got some miniseries ending at the same time other miniseries are beginning.

    'Sides, it's not like they're all part of the main IDW continuity. If you're just paying attention to that, you've got 1-2 comics to pick up a month.

    *REIGN OF STARSCREAM SPOILERS*





    Wreckage isn't a S7 weapon, he's turned traitor against the Decepticons and is helping the humans. Why, we don't know yet.

    I'm not normally one to take much interest in the comics..... But damn... that second one looks great, and if it's done by the same guy who did that LongHaul concept Fanart, what 3 years ago, then well done him.

    Also... aren't Sam and Mikaela still in the outfits they were in the first movie?

    I figure the "why" is to save his own miserable chassis.

    I'm interested in the Movie Prequel and Max Dinobots.
