    Unicron is tearing up the planet just by being in orbit and STILL Slide won't stow it?

    Well obviously Slide thinks everything is Optimus's fault so why not one more for the road? Have to keep piling all your personal problems on someone else to make yourself feel better! (PS. this doesn't actually work.)

    Guess she had to step in since Griffith was helping with Unicron #6.

    If this optimus was bay optimus he would tear slide apart with his arm swords before saying "give me your face" lol.

    I hate how he's being made the bad guy. Pyra magna has been on his case too. He's doing his best and if Unicron #5 is anything to go by will play an important role in the climax of this continuity.

    As he should. Looking forward to this issue and as someone has said just the finales to go in each title.

    So for those of you who read it...is the Optimus Prime comic any good? I've been rewatching the G1 cartoon, and I'm kind of on an Optimus kick. I'm intrigued by the idea of a story that focuses on the character more in-depth. Also, does it require reading the previous series?

    Just for some background on my comic preferences, I enjoyed Infiltration, and I'm not thrilled with MTMTE. Unicron is fine, and I think it's gotten more compelling the closer it gets to the end. Outside of those, none of the other comics I've read have really suck with me (I read LSOTW, a tiiiiiny bit of RID, and a couple of the spotlights). Does Optimus sound like something I'd enjoy?

    Honestly, no, not really. I’d wait for the reboot and hope it’s better there.

    That cover! Zama\'s art and Burcham\'s colors is such a perfect fusion it puts Vegetto to shame.

    I really don't get how Optimus is supposed to be the "bad guy" here.

    Annexing Earth into the Cybertronian empire was to PROTECT it since Galvatron made a clear case of why it NEEDS to be protected. Leaving it alone would have undoubtedly made way for another Galvatron in time thanks to everything the Decepticons have done. I can understand the apprehension people in the setting would feel about it, but he ordered aid to just about everywhere on the planet that needed it afterwards and tried his damn best, so why does everybody make him out to be the bad guy?

    One of many things that soured me on the IDW universe is the utter disrespect and outright emotional/mental torture Optimus has been facing ever since he took back his name in Dark Cybertron. Everybody has built him up on unreachable pedestals and screamed their disappointment at him when he fails to live up to those expectations, though not for lack of trying. It's not like he's intentionally trying to mislead Cybetronians by showing off the Matrix despite not believing in divinity, which feels rational enough, but it's obviously been the only way to keep them calm, and even that ended up not holding since just about everybody in this comic has one way or another turned into an unlikeable jackass that I'm increasingly apathetic towards as far as Unicron arriving for din dins, save for a handful of characters.

    Maybe there's some big message here that's just plain going over my head, but it feels as though Optimus is a victim of circumstances that's just plain unfair to him.

    Or am I wrong, someone please help me out here because the irritation I feel towards this writing has reached palpable levels.

    More characters no one cares about being angry and shaming prime at the moment of armageddon? 

    What a waste of great art. Call me when IDW is going the way of Dreamwave.

    Yes I too want people to lose their jobs and not get paid because I don't enjoy the funny pictures they make.

    Is that the sound of IDW ashes blowing away or the air going through your ears?
