    I am more excited for this comic than I have been for any comic since the first Dreamwave issue. Even the news that Furman was starting his own G1 universe at IDW didn't get me this worked up. It's not just that it's Furman continuing Marvel G1. It's that Wildman and Baskerville are there too. Dreams are coming true, here.

    I am really excited for this, but I don't think I realized until right now that I was going to have to wait until Summer for it. I had thought it was going to hit around the same time as the Death of Optimus Prime stuff. I thought the comic news stuff was synchronized or something. Oh well, I'm glad they have lots of lead time to do it.

    I wonder if we'll get more information about the Last Autobot and Liege Maximo?

    Honestly, I think they'll be quietly dropped, especially given that the Last Autobot was just a plot device to allow the story to wrap up suddenly.

    My, I guess I'm one of the few who does not care a great deal about this. I don't really like the Marvel G1 Transformers comics, partly because there are no female Transformers. Crucify me if you may, fandom, but those comics are not my thing.

    Granted, I might pick up the first issue to see what it's about on Free Comic Book Day.

    I'm surprised; Wildman's art on the cover is a lot less organic than the majority of his Marvel run. My interest has suddenly increased.

    Well, it has been about 20 years. He wasn't my favorite TF artist ever at the time (although compared to the other US Marvel TF artists, he wasn't any worse), but I'm perfectly willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that he has grown as an artist over the past decades.

    But yeah, the organic-ness of his Transformers used to bug me, too. They never looked like robots to me; they looked like humans with silver face paint and wearing metal hats. And all that spittle flying all the time.

    Looks good, but I can't help but wish they used the same coloring method that the original Marvel run did. Something about digital coloring with Wildman's art just looks off to me.

    Eh; I disagree. As-is, it looks like a decent compromise between dot coloring and the rich palette of modern books.

    dot coloring would probably alienate to many new readers.

    Yeah, I'm glad that voting on that poll for this comic pages off.

    When they closed out issue #80, Optimus was the ActionMaster version. When they return, will he be in the 1990s colors, or the 2001 New Year Special color scheme (which I have, with 1 of AM Prime's orange rifle/smokestacks)?
