    Roche is a great artist, I like his take on the TFs. The only possible critique that I have is that his style might be a little too carttony for the Devastation story line, but I'm still looking forward to seeing what he does.

    Love the art!

    And his humans look very good. Can't wait for Devastation to arrive.

    The humans looks suddenly more .... ... overtly expressive (cartoony), but I like it overall.

    I think the "perma-smile" holographic humans of the first series would look pretty funny drawn by him. :)

    Wow this guy improved, A LOT. Compare the artwork in the Hot Rod spotlight to this and you'll see a huge progression. Bravo, Roche.

    Hmmmm... I really like EJ Su's bots, and his (true) manga styling (though his humans still need some work... they are often more stiff than the Transformers!)...

    I also think that Nick Roche might be a bit cartoony for my tastes (and this storyline), but his work is getting better, and I don't have too many complaints.

    What I really want to see is Nick Roche flex his writing muscles again! The Kup Spotlight impressed me, and displayed some things that have been missing in Furman's writing of late... that is, a refreshing observance of classic TF characterizations, and the ability to actually convey their personalities through dialogue.

    My ongoing complaint about Furman's work is the fact that the TFs themselves are too stoic, too solemn... and often really dull. They rarely display much personality and generally almost any line of dialogue could be delivered by any other character. It's like Furman gets so lost in his grand over-arching cosmic storylines that only sees the characters as vehicles for those storylines, and forgets to make us feel like anything is actually happening here and now with characters we care for.

    I never read a Furman line and say to myself "Wow... that's totally Trailbreaker!!" or "Of course Huffer would say that." the way I have reading Nick Roche or Forest Lee's stuff. As a fan, I find those details and character touches really gratifying... like the author "got" the spirit of the Transformers down.

    Well, we'll see how it goes with the art for now. But let's hope Roche gets some more scripting chores to see if he can keep it up! :)
