    So as AHM #16 implied, we've regressed from AHM #12's "Too much has happened for us to be friends" to Marvel-era "We're unable to tell good robots from bad robots, so let's start shooting the ones not fighting back, we'll worry about the ones who are actually attacking us later".

    The colouring is way too bright considering the story mentions it being "in the night".

    ...Him... of all 'bots to get downed in one shot, HIM? Come ON. I hope this is one of those false deaths where it turns out later he barely survived or something.

    Wow, that's a pretty bold move by Costa, and to do it in the first 3 pages no less. I'm shocked yet intrigued what else is in store for us.

    Yeah, that irked me a bit.

    Then you totally miss the point of dramatic writing - a character you care about dying makes you care about the death. You wouldn't care if it was a nobody character dying, would you?

    God.

    Wow. Way to not get me excited for an ongoing. Killing Ironhide, opening with Hot Rod and of course, the cold metallic faces of my nightmares.

    I do have to thank IDW for helping me spend less though.

    I'm not happy, Bob......not happy.

    The designs we saw in the poster I liked. Not quite movie style but also not quite G1 as well. I liked that. BUT, unless it has something to do with the movie universe, I don't like Bumblebee with door wings. You already have enough G1 bots with door wings, Bee doesn't need them, too.

    Then there's the facial designs. I think they're way too detailed when compared to everything else. The humans look noticeably cartoony compared to the highly-detailed Autobots. They just don't meld together well, IMO.

    And of course, you have Ironhide. Why? Why kill him off on page 2 of the first issue? Shock value? Was it really necessary? I hope he's brought back real soon, because if he isn't then I'm gonna be really annoyed. Mainly because he didn't do jack when he was alive for one page.

    I'll still pick up the first issue to see how it goes and decide from there. But as of now...

    I'm not happy, Bob........not happy.

    Bold move, taking the knife to a season one bot in the opening volley. Bolder still if he actually stays dead. Still, I can't get too weepy for Ironhide, considering what a jerkhole he was for most of AHM.

    The faces still chill me to my heart of hearts, but I am more than a little intrigued. Carry on, sirs.

    Eh, we all saw it happen before in the '86 movie. No one's missing much.

    The art in the poster are the same as the previews but yeah.....the designs on the last page of the preview, I couldn't tell if Rodimus' mouth was open or not, I had to look real hard at it like WTF? But yeah I'm not happy with the "death" either seeing he did nothing in this series so far. What was the point of changing his form if he was just going to die - issue 1?

    But looking at the face designs from the storytelling POV. The humans see the TransFormers as ugly evil robots good or bad there all the same. But I do hope they change that up.


    *Who did the coloring BTW?
