    Looks like they had to call in all three artists in order to get this out quickly.

    Welp, time to say goodbye to Devastator in favour of the \"fan-voted combiner\".

    Yeah, and I've grown to like IDW Devastator... It wouldn't be so bad if the Torchbearers were likable, but Pyra Magna just strikes me as so one note and obnoxious in her dislike of Optimus Prime, Rust Dust is a nonentity, and while the remaining Torchbearers are likable and interesting, they remain woefully underdeveloped. Victorion herself just has a cool power, not coming across half as interesting as the ever-changing Devastator.

    Devastator. Victorion. Doesn’t matter.
    The winner is still gonna wind up as Unicron’s Happy Meal.

    Well that's what happens when Hasbro only tries to market a combined form instead of the team that makes it. Pyra, I get what her damage is but at no point does it strike me as "maybe she's right". Honestly I keep thinking she and Optimus need to be locked in a closet and jet let whatever happens happen. Dust Up and Jumpstream have a relationship and need to have a talk because the former is responsible for their town getting massacred. The copter twins could be interesting but we never see their "one fights for justice, the other for sport" dynamic. And as you said Rust Dust is just there. Honestly I keep thinking if I werent for Hasbro's need to include legends figures into the CW gestalts she wouldnt exist.

    Shocker, Pyra is a total pain in the aft. Was that news really worth wasting pages for?

    A shame the preview only had Livio's...art. Kei Zama's always gold though, so's Sarah Pitre-Durocher.

    Anything but Ramondelli, his art is right up there with Pat Lee's.

    Like, exactly, except he's purportedly super nice and Pat Lee's a gigantic asshole-monster. Livio's art is just not my style of art, I guess. Weirdly enough, I'd take his over Lawrence's, I am much less a fan of cutesy art than I am of whatever Livio's art could be called. Mostly just frustrating not to get to see Kei Zama's stuff in the preview.

    No kidding. It seems like everyone hates Optimus at this point.

    Well both her and Sara are doing this issue too. They seem to have split it.

    You misread, I'm talking about art not people. Lee is a monster, I'm not denying that I'm just saying I usually have to squint to make out what's going on with Ramondelli.

    Nah, I got you I think, I just worried about lumping anyone in with Pat Lee for anything...it's like being sprayed by a skunk, you don't get his stank off you for a while. I really need to catch up on Optimus, but I'm kinda trying to wait until everything is done so I can get the collected issues for a bit cheaper.

    When it's entirely unjustified and it's not like they could do better.
    Ah, good I was behind on Optimus as well. It wasn't until "The Dead Come Home" arc that I got caught up.

    Yeah, wait until he inevitably comes back with Bumblebee in tow and saves the day by wiping the floor with Shockwave.

    How many want to wage that when that happens, everyone will be like "okay, suddenly I kinda feel like an asshole..."?

    Man, IDW is really rushing to get these last few issues out, aren't they? It's a shame this tight schedule has already spoiled the entire ending of this arc.
