    Heck, I would rather have BW as IDW's monthly book than their G1 series.

    I fear that they may be oversaturating the market. DW tried to run three ongoings and it didn't work. I think that to do another mini later on after Steel Hearts would be good, but just keep one ongoing, one Mini, and the Generations discount reprints for a while, and see what readership after a year. If it's nice nad high, then adda second ongoing for BW.

    3 TF comics a month, well... 4 per month with DDP's annual GI Joe x-overs, is already too much. One ongoing and one mini-series or special per month would be ideal.

    I don't think a lot of mini series going at once is a problem; as long as they're somewhat diverse. I think Beast Wars really works best as a mini, and I look forward to more in the future.
    But what I'd love to see is Inflitration end and be replaced by a good, strong series. I see a lot of people bash DW's G1 ongoing, but issues 9 and 10 were some of my favorite TF comics ever. Blah, I still have sour grapes over not having an ending to the ongoing.

    You do know that Infiltration is not a mini-series right? It's just the name of the first arc of the ongoing G1 monthly. It's not going to be replaced by a G1 series. It's IS the G1 series already.

    Yeah, I know it's the ongoing, hence the "Inflitration end and be replaced by a good, strong series" bit. It's the worst TF comic I've ever read, I only buy it to support the line.
    I think it's flaws are glaringly obvious when you read Beast Wars after it. I have three issues of Infiltration and one Beast Wars; more happens in the first 12 pages of Beast Wars than all three Infiltration issues. I don't think Beast Wars would work as an ongoing but I'd love for a series of minis like how War Within was done.

    Yes a lot happened in that one issue, but that is happening in the classic BW universe. Infiltration is setting up the new paradigm of Transformers. It's a nice, slow build that would probably work better if read all at once. I encourage everyone who thinks that it is too slow to buy the TPB when it comes out. I'm doing it just because I prefer the TPB graphic novel format and find it works better with todays comics and thier long story arcs. I'm also buying the individual issues to support the series.

    I don't understand supporting a comic that you don't like. It doesn't support the line, it encourages the publisher to produce more comics that you won't like. If IDW publishes TF comics that no one likes, then they will either fix the problem or the license will go to a better publisher next time.

    True, but I'm sick of the comics relaunching and restarting at a new publisher. I'd rather see Infiltration end, then IDW launch a 'better' G1. I'm still holding out for DW legal issues to resolve and be picked up by IDW. Again, though loving their Beast Wars stuff.
