    Hrrrm, Sector 7 miniseries, eh? That could be very interesting or fairly boring if it focuses TOO much on the humans.

    Depends. The Prequel book they had for the first movie, Ghosts of Yesterday, focused a lot on the history of S7 and moving Megatron from the Arctic to Nevada, and it was not bad, focusing 60% or so on the humans alone

    On the cover of issue 11, so... when's Bumblebee gonna suffer the tragic head injury that causes him to be rebuilt with a bug face and turned mute?

    Do like Thundercracker looking all Armada Wheeljack, though. That's promising.

    Damn....the Predacons?! I definitely need to get that issue. And yeah Thundercracker's little turn is gonna be interesting coming up soon. Especially if Megs is about time for a comeback.

    That white guy in the foreground of Drift issue 2 seems to have Gundam Double O's shoulder engine things.

    So... it's the Autobots teaming up with Thundercracker to fight the Combaticons and Predacons, with a possibility of Bruticus and Predaking showing up...

    This comic is starting to get awesome again!

    Great cover for the Sector 7 mini.

    I hate what they're doing with Bumblebee on TF 11 though.

    Sounds interesting if S7 is gonna lead into TF3. And damn it, come on. Announce the title of the third one - I'm getting tired of using that acronym.

    Hope it's as good as Alliance and Defiance. I wish Alex Milne could PLEASE draw this series. Milne did a spectacular job with Alliance and Defiance, and made them easy to draw and understand.

    Aw well. S7 will be flushed down the toilet when the third movie comes along - it's been done already.

    I always wondered when someone would have Thundercracker changing sides, given how the original character bio says he wasn't entirely convinced the Decepticon cause was the correct one. I might see about picking up the trades.

    Y'know, while it's nice because it teases about the contents of the issue, I have to say that's a pretty horrid cover composition. The crazy dynamism of the top half clashes horribly with the static tone of the bottom half. It's like the Predacons are all posing for an album cover, with dramatic flames behind them, all the while completely oblivious to the explosions and the poorly foreshortened Bumblebee above them pretending to be Hot Rod.

    The way BB is holding Thundercracker's rear fin is... awkward? Also, clearly this is cover is the closest we will ever get to a Headstrong Spotlight as well. :) 

    Hmmm...

    Well from what Kup said in Spotlight: Drift recognizing Drift's sword, when the war began there was a neutral faction that left Cybertron. Apparently Perceptor recognized the craftsmanship of Drift's upgrades that he hasn't seen such since... Yeah stops from blurting out the name.

    Yeah thats why I always thought he was the most interesting Seeker. Not a big fan of Bee getting the movie treatment. It's like were being force fed I like him being badass I just think he could be more badass as a classic bug E.J. Had it right. Looking forward to Drift. And I'm totally passing up movie books, IMHO movie merch is just played out.
