    THE TRANSFORMERS: INFILTRATION #6 (of 6)

    Publisher:
    IDW Publishing
    Writers: Simon Furman
    Pencils: EJ Su
    Cover: EJ Su, Guido Guidi, Nick Roche, Klaus Scherwinski, Andrew Wildman (Incentive), Bob LeFevre (Incentive)

    The first titanic arc - Infiltration - wraps up in spectacular, no-holds-barred style, as Megatron sets about - demonstrably - putting his house (on Earth) in order. But, mighty as he is, has even Megatron got what it takes to curtail the activities of the all-new, hyper-powered Starscream? Whichever way it goes, the outlook looks distinctly bleak for the beleaguered earthbound Autobots. Could be that it’s time for Prowl and Co. to roll out the big guns?
    ON-GOING SERIES

    loving the prime cover from Su. Nice to see that he's swayed from his gundam-derivative redesign stuff and stuck with a classic design.

    you do realize the cover is most likely done prior to all the gundam-backlash, dont you?

    Interesting... is that Classics Astrotrain they're using in the comics?

    Wouldn't surprise me if so... after all, didn't Don Fig design the line AND have a hand in designs for IDW? If Jetfire is supposedly the same, it wouldn't surprise me if Astrotrain is.

    Scherwinski's cover is AMAZING. Su's the worst of the lot.

    Wildman's cover is very disappointing. Su's cover, for me, is really simple and clean - which I like. Guidi's cover is over the top; but I still like it. And Scherwinski's cover is too boring...

    cool alt modes on Pages 4 and 5. So from what it looks like, Jazz is a Porsche 911 GT which is a nice homage to the 935 Turbo he originally was, Sunstreaker is one of the newer Lamborghinis (that a Gallardo or Muricelago? Don't know the modern cars), Ironhide and Ratchet share the same alt mode model van, and if I'm not mistaken, Wheeljack still has his G1 altmode of a Lancia Stratos, and Prowl is a 350z. Liking these updates much better than the Decepticon ones.

    It's the end of the first story arc, followed by a short break while Stormbringer is released. The continuation of the G1 story (issues #7-12) will be in Transformers: Escalation #1-6 starting in October.

    So, it's basically an on-going series composed of mini-series.

    FYI with the exclusion of jazz and wheeljack, the others have appeared in their alt modes in previous issues.

    also, despite jazz and wheeljack 1st appearance in alt modes, we've known their alt modes by the parts in bot mode early on too.

    seems that most of u posting arent familiar with book. thats a good thing. we need all the readers we can get to bolster those sales numbers.

    I have trouble telling much about alt modes from a robot mode. Especially when it comes to which car model it is. I'm not much of a car geek.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the wrap-up of this story arc. Prime needs to get these troops of his into the action, not in boring-ass recon mission mode. A good 'ol Starscream/Megatron battle should shake our heroes out of inactivity.

    My thoughts exactly! When I saw the preview on the front page, I thought to myself: Wow! EJ Su finally draws a good Transformer. It took him 6 issues, but we got one. Then I find out it's by someone else. Figures.
