    That Spike looks really strange on that second interior page.

    On one hand, we've got an artist that can draw good humans. On the other hand, I didn't immediately identify that guy as Spike. We'll just have to see how well Saltares does robots. These comics are starting to spend too much time developing the humans, which doesn't interest me.

    Throw another artist on the pile who has no idea how to draw military people.

    I just really did not like what happened in this issue, as the Constructions are my favorite so...

    But Im sure it can all be fixed and made right just as fast. Overall I am loving the IDW TF books.

    Seconding that I really couldn't recognize Spike off the bat and I'm not overly fond of what happened in it, but it wasn't a bad read. I expect things will be getting better again soon enough.

    The art blows. Can we have the 'cons nuke the planet and kill every human already?

    hmmmm......

    Also I don't like how Spike's character model keeps changing, I mean compare this spike, to the one from his first appearance in AHM

    Spike needs an entire Spotlight issue devoted to him.

    Or not.

    Is this the same Javier Saltares that used to draw Ghost Rider in the 90s?

    The ongoing was good at one point? That's a news flash to me. All I've seen (art and story) is crap. The Spotlights and side stories have been so much better.

    @Angelwave - I think you missed the joke. ILoveDinobot seems to be poking fun at the ugly design. Other than the head, you can't really tell who it is. That is scary.
