    I am reading the new outgoing and I am confused, as what happened since when the Autobots and Decepticons aren't fighting? Am I missing something?

    Essentially the Decepticon were all captured and chipped after Costa's run, which saw Cybertron regenerated to a primordial state with all the varying transformers that had stayed neutral or deserted during the war returning.

    Or better yet: Don't. The old ongoing is infamous for being awful.

    Hey, thanks man! I kinda crapped out on the old ongoing at about issue #6, so I had no idea what happened between then and RID #1.

    Wait.....Megatron and Galvatron are/were two different bots?

    Correction - best idea ever, seeing as how it's been 100% great so far.

    Yes thankfully. And not only that, Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge pre-date Megatron and Optimus by several thousand years. They left Cybertron before the Decepticons ever became a faction.

    Best thing that happened to IDW Transformers since Furman left. Also, finally something original.
