    And now I present to you... GALVATRON!

    Looks good. I like Milne's cover the best. I'm also glad the incentive covers are just sketch covers...because they hold no interest for me. I'd much rather have a totally different and colored cover if I'm going to buy an incentive.

    Nice. So I wonder, does this set up the next big arc that moves beyond the current Earth based storyline and into the bigger picture of the Transformers Universe?

    Can't wait to see just what this "anomaly" those aliens were talking about is.

    Looks good.
    I'm guessing that this will be IDW's offering at Botcon much like the Nighbeat spotlight was last year.

    Best IDW art ever, and IDW has had its fair share of great art. Galvatron is one of my favorite characters to begin with, and he looks in rare form now.

    NICE. I still don't know what to think of Galvatron not being Megatron, but I'm sure I can get past it. Can't wait for this one.

    as much as I love the art (yay guido!), I still can't bring myself to accept that Galvatron and Megatron are seperate characters. Its like making Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime seperate characters, when we've known for 21 years that they're the same.

    well this would HARDLY be the first time that Megatron and Galvatron have been on the same panel at the same time in comics. I mean HECK! Furman couldn't even write two arcs of Armada without it happening.
