    Really not needed, but hardcover releases are always welcome.

    Looking at the page count, it seems to be a collection of the Drift mini and Spotlight Drift, but that still brings it up a bit short. Potentially there might be some concept sketches in there or something, because I can't see his debut issue making the cut given it was in the middle of AHM.

    I have the regular TPB of the Drift issues, but I may pick this one up as well. Regardless of the trendy hate he receives, I like him

    Drift is overhated. He's definitely cool.

    I like drift and that was a fine miniseries. That has shaped the direction of the current ongoing more than meets the eye and robots in disguise books.

    But I'm find with my existing trade paperback of the miniseries.
    Still the art is nice, and the storytelling really fills you in on Drift well. Taking a full Hero's Journey across this little series.

    My speculation is:
    Dai Atlas, Lockdown, and others will be on MTMTE later. But some readers would not know who they are. So, in order to inform those who didn't read Drift miniseries, IDW decided to re-release this book.

    Maybe we'll get a new prose story in this. That may make up the extra pages

    Yeah, I'm curious to hear about extra content. Anyone have the Drift TPB handy? Can you let me know what it included? I have the comics, but not the trade. If it turns out to be the same content, I'll opt for the paperback version.

    That's a good idea. It wasn't until his Spotlight that I actually gave a shit about what was going on in his head. Prose can really bring more of that out.
