    I like how IDW Overlord's "Greek Adonis kissy-lips" are as iconic of him now as Batman's pointy ears, such that that's all you need to identify him.

    Does the spider appear to be hanging to Kup's foot or nowhere?

    Well, is definitely fitting for Overlord to appear in this final story.

    I don’t think there could be a more fitting cover for a story with this name. It’s got everything in it.

    I think it's in the same metaphysical cover-space as Overlord. It's not actually interacting with any of the other elements.

    How will it all end for the Wreckers?

    Boy I’m excited for this, and if they get Overlord in this, and perhaps finally kill him, that would make it even better!

    So that’s definitely Overlord and Tarantulas on the cover, but the real question is whether or not they’re actually appearing in the comic, or whether this is just a callback cover to the previous two storylines.

    I’m going to assume the latter, simply for the fact that I don’t want to get my hopes up for an Overlord appearance and then find out he’s not going to show up.

    Still wish this was a 5-issue series like the others were. Makes this one stick out like a sore thumb, or maybe a partially amputated one. Was making this a one-shot due to Nick wanting to do it that was or because they cut the universe short?

    Alright, been a while since I picked up a comic but this one's a must-have. Here's hoping Roche is with whatever team works on Transformers next, his Wreckers comics are probably the best pieces of Tranformers fiction ever made.

    Why, because of the very horrible ways a lot of the characters die?

    Also, you guys think Roche will acknowledge Kup's death-by-bitchy-magic-alien-wizard-witch-lady?

    To me, the magic question is: When does it ship?

    ADDENDUM: May this year.

    From what I’ve gathered, that’s going to be the catalyst for the whole story. Don’t quote me on that though.

    It most likely takes place before the Revolutionaries crossover.

    I'd need to dig for the tweet, but Roche said the story is "because of Kup" in response to a tweet about his death in Visionaries. Which implies it will be covered.

    Boy, they're really wringing out that chamoise! Every last drop, fellas!

    It's a one-shot? How can it be an annual, if there's no book for it to be an annual for?

    I thought that Phase One or Phase Two was done for...

    Whoa! Is the Senior name on the cover Geoff Senior?! If so, I might have to buy an IDW comic...Not sure how to feel about that.
