    Livio Ramondelli put this up on his Twitter. I don't think anyone's posted it yet.

    Personally, I think it looks gorgeous. I want it as a poster!

    So glad Idw is doing Rid and Autocracy. I'm still enjoying the League of Extraordinarily Witty Smart !@#es(MTMTE) for what it is, but these other two are the types of Tfs stories I've been wanting for years. And it will be cool to see Livio cross over into RiD. Guy's style has really come into it's own lately with the near mythic look of the scenery in Autocracy #5 and the absolute devastation in #6.

    I don't know if it would stick out quite so badly if they hadn't hyped the DOOP issue so heavily. Also, issue 6 here won't have Prime back on cybertron. That is still a way off...

    The quick return of Orion is kind of iffy, but that cover is pretty nice.

    Has there been a preview yet? How do we know this isn't a flashback?

    Haha! LoEWSA, I love it. And I agree, it's so mythic and epic.

    No, there has been no preview. But it doesn't look to be a flashback, as the solict refers to him as Orion Pax and makes it sound like it takes place after TDOOP.

    I need that as a poster, NOW. I also am not gonna jump to any conclusion with Prime's return, but it does seem kind of obvious right now.

    I dig Livio's style, but I sort of think that he should stick to covers/posters, 'cos his sequential art just isn't there for me.

    The more I look at it, the more I fall in love with Livio Ramondelli's style.

    It was probably meant to be a Spotlight but with the politics that goes on beyond the scenes. (notice they don't do spotlights anymore) They were force to make it part of On-going.

    And for me since Prime hasn't really don't anything under Costa's dark reign I wont be so quick to dismiss Prime's involvement.

    I think this is for Autocracy, not RiD, mainly because RiD isn't even on it's fifth issue yet and Shockwave dosn't look like he does in the comics.

    I like this guy's style. I know there's a name for what it reminds me of, but I'm fucking dumb so I'm just gonna say it's old, almost cubist-like style.

    Shame Optimus is coming back. I was kinda hoping he'd stay gone longer.

    Solicts are always released three months in advance. Ramondelli says it's RiD, and Barber says it's RiD. Plus, RiD #6's solict features both Orion and Shockwave, and Ramondelli is doing the interior art for that issue. It's RiD.
