    Love the covers but this fan will hate to continue the story without Optimus, but I know I'll be reading them as they're released. Glad some of my other faves will still be around...to deal with what's left.

    That's what I was thinking, but it is a new press release. Why IDW is releasing a new press release about old news is the real question. Probably just to remind casual fans right before the issues come out.

    Some interesting characters leaving with Rod, including Shockwave or a Vorlon, I'm not sure which from that cover :) 

    I really wish they would fix that Cyclonus design though, it's fugly as hell.

    Given how #31 convinced me to give the ongoing another shot, I'm pretty hopeful from the details so far. It would be nice if they could "lock" the aesthetic now, otherwise new readers are going to find it hard going.

    Nothing to do now but count the days I guess.

    Look at Bumblebee and Ironhide's new robot looks:

    It's War for Cybertron.

    The RID cover looks decent, but those MTMTE covers are some of the worst TF "art" I've ever seen... which is sadly par for the course when it comes to IDW.

    Who else is tired of Optimus dying simply to boost sales? Who else just wants Transformers books to be a little less emo and a little more hero? Ugh. IDW Y U NO HIRE WRITERS WORTH A DAMN!

    If you'd look at who's writing the two new titles, you'd know that they did.

    Also, if you'd actually read the comic, you'd know that that's not what happened.

    I have low expectations for RiD, although I liked the introduction of Metalhawk and think he could makes things interesting.

    However, the combination of Roberts and Roche and the exploration into the "Knights of Cybertron" mythology/lore in MTMTE has me the most excited to read a Transformers comic since Dreamwave's War Within.

    Yes I noticed that as well, wonder if that means we'll be getting new WFC/FOC toys? Additional exposure through the comics.

    You really should read the book :)  It looks like next year will be a very good one for Transformers comics fans :)

    If I'm not mistaken, they have said that there will be toys- if not its own line.

    What I wonder is what it does to / for their whole ALIGNED continuity thing?

    I'm interested and will likely pick up both first issues right when they go on sale.

    I haven't kept up with the ongoing - I selectively buy the trades and skip around, but these sound interesting.

    Premature jubilation, singing and dancing to accompany a new TF writer; I am feeling deja vu. Bet it all ends in tears.

    It's not my intention to follow these new series. The art doesn't particularly impress me, and after a satisfying "Death of Prime" to an otherwise all-over-the-map TF Ongoing I think I'm ready to call it done.

    I Still miss Dreamwave.
