Gentlemen. I have just finished reading MTMTE #1. After doing so, I can say fairly confidently that the McCarthy/Costa IDW dark ages are behind us, and that we are potentially entering a new golden age of Transformers comics. Seriously though, this issue was fantastic, just as fantastic as everything else James has worked on. So much happened in this issue, it almost felt as if I was reading a TPB. Whirl is such a dick, and I love it. Extremely interested in seeing what happens when Megatron inevitably returns and the two of them meet again. I dug the art even though many don't. Always loved Roche's style. And even if you don't, Alex Milne will be taking over after this, so no worries. TL;DR: Fantastic book. Buy it and support good comics in doing so!
