    I have no idea what to think about this, getting pretty tired of Crossovers falling back on terrible cliche's in order to get some fighting out of it, I'd be more interested in a decent bit of story writing in order to shoehorn properties together.

    Alas.

    The writer gets Spidey right, though! Yay!

    The preview was good. I'm outta town, but I called my local comic shop and they said they'd reserve it for me :D

    Beat the shit out of all the GI Joe ones thus far, I'd say that.

    I'm underwhelmed. It seemed really short, plus I have no context for the setting. Butlurviastan, or something. Wherever Doc Doom lives. And the typical "ZOMG talkin' trukk bub!" is quite predictable. Hopefully it gets better next issue.

    I'm unimpressed as well. I'll skim through the next one at the store before I decide to buy it. If I'm gonna pay $4 for a comic, it better kick my ass!

    This issue was worth it just to see Spidey say "Ruh Roh" after hearing Megatron's diabolical plans.

    I liked it. It set out to get you intrigued and keep you reading and I felt it did so.

    And Spidey-snark rocks!

    It was a good set up, I think. I'll have to see the next issue before I can really make a judgement call.

    The art was really nice, which is a big relief to me as I was afraid it was going to look like the cover of #2, where Wolvie looks all mashed and wierd.

    I think McGuinness is doing covers for a few issues so that's where the bloatedness comes in.

    The issue was "meh". It was about on par with crossovers. nothing spectacular but not terrible either. Going into these things, you have to expect some level of crap. This isn't going to be Busiek's JLA/Avengers but it won't be Archie/Punisher either.

    Its gonna be cooler than the JLA/Avengers crossover! But i'm suprise that nobody mentioned that Decepticon car that hauled a Stunned Spider-Man away! Guys I think that was Wildrider!

    I think it was supposed to be runabout (or runamuck, I always get them confused). The issue wasn't terrible, but I feel that I only got half a comic. There should have been more meat to it.

    this comic was complete garbage. we get to see steve rogers back in action, and he's yelling at people and ordering an attack on optimus prime. the whole thing goes by extremely fast too. not even a five minute read.

    its a good thing I read a friend's copy. I'd have been pissed if I paid for it. I can safely ignore the other three issues now.

    It wasn't that long! But it was good! The first issues of a mini-series are never long though!

    That's because of Megatron's anger-bringer-outter thingie.

    Anyways, nice intro issue, provided it really starts picking up next issue (this is a 6-issue series, not a 4-issue, right?). They got the Marvel folks spot-on, now let's hope they get the TFs right, too...
