    Here's hoping the Sgt. Savage Mini Comic is included this time.

    Yeah, I dunno what happened with that. I hear it was only included with a particular variant cover?

    Cute Martian reference, but isn't Revolutions dead by this point? It was a failed experiment at a shared universe that turned M.A.S.K into every other Anti-Cybertronian organisation, made humanity out to be overly paranoid slagwits, and completely ruined the Dire Wraiths as an actual threat.

    Revolutionaries is shaping up to be pretty fun. John Barber having fun with dropped plotlines, minor characters, and continuity plays to his strengths and is enough to make this great.

    Egh... I suppose I like this Action Man a bit more than I like G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K., but still, I want some cybertronians here.

    Action Man coming across all those dead Cobras in the airlock is pretty unsettling. Can't wait to see how this plays out.

    No, and people around her tend to be pretty quick to call something 'dead.'

    GI Joe was the centerpoint of Revolutions, we'll have to see how that does (and I mean, check again in several months at minimum), and there's ROM as well. The latest sales data I have is from December, and that indicated ROM was doing just fine at 8k sales (MASK, not so much, 5K). The event itself sold well. Revolutionaries specifically, we don't have any sales data on the first issue yet.

    Quick look-over from me says it's probably an overall success, though some specific aspects like MASK don't share in that and likely won't last long.

    The more Sci-Fi ones like ROM and Micronauts seem to be doing a lot better. MASK, that's definitely on a wire. The fact its third issue is taking so long isn't helping either.

    I feel Revolutionaries will be like the former. It's practically almost a fourth TF comic.

    Yep. Revolutionaries seems like the crossover point between TF and the rest, which helps since it means more draw to TF fans than the others.

    MASK needs a creative overhaul ASAP, and should probably just be killed altogether in my opinion. The Revolution tie-in and the first issue had some serious issues with basic comic storytelling and panel layout. I didn't even bother with issue #2. It's a shame, but at least most of the other books turned out pretty well so far.

    I don't hate M.A.S.K but it definitely could be better. There was a fairly major reveal in the last issue and it wasn't given the impact that it was needed. Miles Mayhem is also a poor villain. I have no idea what his motivations are what so ever. It feels like his motives are inconsistent between each book. I swear if they don't even bother to change the Venom acronym from Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem to something else I'm done.

    A limited-series can't be "dead" if it was only a 5-issue run. This wasn't an experiment at all, but a blending of multiple properties which have come close to crossovers, and this was the way to finally put them together. If anything, the Dire Wraiths are the biggest threat, having infiltrated multiple places and still are unaccounted for. MASK is not an anti-Cybertronian organization, but you wouldn't know that since it sounds like you didn't even read it. MASK wasn't the strongest out of the crossovers, but it doesn't mean it has "failed."

    GI Joe and Transformers are at the center of it, with ROM, Action Man, and MASK circling around, occasionally getting involved in arcs.
