    Looks like the story in RiD is switching to focus on Optimus for a little bit. (assuming that "shattered planet" isn't Cybertron) And YES, more of Shockwave! Also, Roche is doing art for at least one more issue of MtMtE!

    We're back to calling him Hot Rod again? ...I'm gonna go ahead and assume that was just a mix-up in prepping the solicits.

    *edit*

    ...am I reading that right? Livio's doing the internal art for RiD #6? ...is there an emoticon that expresses slight apprehension with a lip curl?

    Aw man I'm disappointed that optimus is back already. I felt like they had a good ending for him and he should really stay out of the comic for a while.

    Though I was hoping we could keep Optimus away, having him show up as at least a secondary character (and as his new character, which should be awesome) is fine with me.

    Rung just can't catch a break.

    And I noticed Roche will do art for MTMTE #6. (...What happened to Rung?)

    But Orion Pax returns!? Hey, then why he left Cybertron at the first place?

    Hey, all it says is he's on a "shattered planet." Isn't necessarily Cybertron.

    Theory time!

    -If the "shattered planet" isn't Cybertron, then Shockwave's going to make it off-planet sometime in the next three issues.
    -The squad of fan-favorite characters are the Dinobots, minus Grimlock.
    -Shockwave's going to be employing Grimlock as a weapon against them.

    In an attempt to look on the bright side, his art in Autocracy is a little better than what he did in Chaos. But I'm still apprehensive about this issue. I mean no offense to Livio at all, but his art is an aquired taste, and I haven't acquired it yet...

    I'm glad Roche is coming back for another issue though! Milne's work in the series is fantastic, but more art by Nick is always a treat.

    ...you're not the only one who's worried. :cry  But covers usually can't be trusted, so I'm *fairly* confident that Rung will be fine. And he is James' fan character, so that probably gives him some plot armor. I hope!

    Lets hope that Orion returning will lead to a proper death this time.....a a back door pilot for a Wreckers mini or something....

    Man, I bet Rung is really regretting joining the Lost Light, haha! Avoids millions of years of war then gets his arm cut off before he's even boarded, the
    Sparkeater going after him
    in issue 3 and now looking beat up with what looks like Skids pointing a gun at his head, poor guy.

    Intriguing that Orion is back already, although I hope it is only an issue or two, I guess it was inevitable we'd see him again but I thought it would be a bit longer at least. Fan favourites, eh? If it's the Dinobots that'd be awesome.

    Do TPBs only have 6 issues in them? MTMTE 1-5 & Death of Prime. I don't buy them so not sure how many are in them.

    Not always. From the trades of IDW's main G1 universe, I've seen as few as four and as many as seven per trade, not counting their big hardcover collections.
