    The Cyclonus one look's as if it could be from TF Animated, I like it.

    Wow.... the Cyc cover's really different, and really cool. I didn't think I'd like it from the preview, but the full image is impressive. I hope the art reflects the tone of the story. I can't wait to see how this one plays out.

    Yeah, it does sort of look like a hybrid of Animated and G1's styles. Interesting.

    what is up with all these super powerful transformers only being Decepticons? The Autobots are going to get their asses handed to them in this story.

    Why is Cyclonus drawn in the Animated-style?
    Also, while I am a big fan of Ernest P.Worrell, I don't think the Ernest laugh is appropriate on Cyclonus...

    I REALLY like Nick's work . . .

    . . . but just not for this series. I suppose I'm just spoiled by EJ Su with this series. I'd really prefer Su to illustrate this series alone, but other things are in play.

    Interesting new style for him. Dunno if I'd like a whole comic in that style or not, but it's great for covers.

    I think I'm alone in disliking this. It's way too cartoony and animated for my tastes. It'd look at home in an Animated book but as G1 IDW, it lacks the seriousness and gravity that's a feature of the book.

    I'm fairly sure that the guy behind Cyclonus is nemesis prime...but if I didn't know the general story I'd sweat it was deszarus.
