    Well, this seems interesting.

    And vaguely Doctor Who-ish.

    That 7 pages has more content, characterization and depth than a heck of a lot of full comics.

    I know I've said this about MtMtE before but: WOW, That's just some awesomly GREAT storytelling.

    Cannot wait for tomarrow for the full issues. If only this could be a weekly. :) 


    -ZacWilliam, if he's at Botcon someone NEEDS to buy Roberts a dozen roses or a round of drinks or something for MtMtE.

    Man great stuff. I really love how James Roberts tries to give distinct characterizations to each and every Autobot. I mean, geez, now I find even First Aid interesting. It's great how he works in small points through the story, like First Aid's OCD, Nominus Prime's skill and attitude, Ratchet's failing hands, even while he's telling his main story. I can't say it enough, but this is a great time to be a Transformers comic fan!

    aaaaaah it's SO GOOD.

    We are about to get an education re: forging vs. constructed cold. Whatever "forging" is, it's either not going on anymore or can't modify/renew an existing Transformer. Very sad...gives one more way Transformers can "age" and have it mean something.

    While he's still really funny, we are getting hints of a LOT more depth to Swerve.

    We are also getting the motherload of info on Decepticon culture in the IDW-verse. Actually ties in with Animated a bit, were joining the 'cons wasn't "invasive" but it sure looked painful and intense.

    Finally, I can't believe that "Genericon" is an official term now...that might be just a little TOO on-the-nose. :lol

    Okay, this comics just gets better and better.

    So who else found what skids was doing hilarious?

    Also, who wants First Aid, Pharma, and the other Delphi members to join the lost light?

    Can't wait until tomorrow to pick this up. My guess: Ambulon is dead/dying and First aid is Ratchet's successor. Kinda obvious but there's bound to be some twists and turns in between with Roberts writing. :)

    Somehow, I don't think Pharma and the others will live long enough to join them. First Aid on the other hand is a different story. I'm curious though, given they are close to an Autobot outpost, I wonder if they'll try to get word out back to Cybertron that they've survived, or at least someone else would.

    Swerve describing his tormenting of Red Alert was hilarious and awesome.

    Ooooooh man I can't wait to get my hands on this tomorrow! Looks like it'll be another great issue, the humour in MTME is exactly to my taste.
    Skids grabbing the little service 'bot with his grappling hook cracked me up, just seeing him aiming and then it flying past Ratchet and Swerve in the background.
    Swerve continues to crack me up, his dialogue is always awesome.
    I see Bob chillin' next to Sunstreaker.

    "...Said it was the worst thing that had ever happened to him."
    "What? Seeing the D.J.D?"
    "No, not being able to speak." Haha, now how did I see that coming?

    If for whatever reason I can't get hold of it tomorrow, oh there will be heck to pay, heck I tell ya!

    Skids is a wonderful robot. :lol  That whole scene was brilliant. And the scene before. And the two scenes after.

    I'm getting antsy.

    Oh, Ratchet, you're never going to be useless. Don't ever say that.

    After the last page of the issue, you'll forget all about Pharma and the other Delphi members.
