    Oy..there's ol' Chubs again. What with the current penchant for variant covers, especially with New Avengers and TFs in their own titles, it's a damn shame there's not one for this series. #1 was fine, but this...God damn.

    Urk, NOT liking that cover with Wolverine and Prowl. XP

    And who is that 'con?

    TC? I thought that's Skywarp.

    The artwork inside looks impressive for the Marvel heroes, but not so much the Transformers.

    Not digging the art on this series. The way he draws joints on the TFs just makes them look like guys in suits, Power Rangers style.

    But then, I shouldn't complain too much. Most decent TF artists can barely draw humans convincingly. ;) 

    I think the mystery decepticon is DreadWing...Wind...Wing... whatever.

    Puck has joined the Avengers? I thought he was dead!

    Seriously, the only way that cover may entice people to buy the comic is by trading on morbid curiosity - Worst WOLVERINE ever detracting from an okay-but-not-brilliant PROWL...

    To be fair to the cover artist... this IS pretty much how Wolverine should look, imho. Well, maybe a little less round in the jowls.

    Wolvie's neither tall, nor slim, nor handsome in the slightest. In fact, he looks nothing like Hugh Jackman at all. ;) 

    He's a squat, 5-foot-3 slab of disturbingly hairy muscle with a bad redneck attitude. Romanticizing Wolverine is the Marvel fanboy equivalent to writing Mary-Sue fiction. Keepin' it real, Wolvie! Woot!

    This is probably an uhuh-duh statement, but this series reminds me (style-wise) of the Marvel Transformers comics of old.

    I have to say, I'm digging the TF/Avengers crossover...mostly BECAUSE of the slightly cheesy, old-school style. If either the Avengers or TF regular series were like this, I'd foam at my fanboy mouth, but as a little 4-issue fluff piece...I like. Especially since the cover price is consistent with Marvel's regular titles and not IDW's.

    Its not Dreadwind OR Darkwing (or Dreadwing!). IDW has said its supposed to be a new character that we haven't seen in their mythos before who'll be getting his own spotlight issue later this year.
    Seeing as how we saw both Dreadwind AND Darkwing during the Stormbringer arc, that automatically nixes them from being the mysterious new Decepticon.
