    Cover A is absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!

    Simon is doing something to get me excited -- he's doing new characters. Six Shot? Squawkbox? The Terrorcons? Thank God! I'm excited for this series. The first page, sorry Rob, sucks. But the other four pages look promising, probably because they're all POV shots, not a pin-up.

    I'm a buyer. Especially of Cover A.

    Looks awesome! Much better art than much of IDW's stuff (I'd say, just an opinion).

    WTF is a Reaper, I wonder.

    I was just pontificating about unused character potential in the Trailbreaker thread over in the comics section. And here we go: a character I know very little about. I know that he was used in Headmasters in Japan, but I'm completely unfamiliar with him other than that. That alone makes me look forward to this issue, but I also enjoy the setup seen in these pages.

    And the Terrorcons are involved! One of my favorite gestalts! Cool.

    before Dreamwave went under they were setting up a Sixshot story as Shockwaves secret weapon. In the little teaser of him picking up Blitzwing's head (dreamwave) he seemed pretty huge and was going to be a good menace.

    You know....good for Rob Ruffalo. I was worried based on his part work on Transformers that this was going to be bad, but optimistic enough to hope he'd improved over the last two years. And yes, he's MUCH improved. This art looks a lot better than anything in Micromasters or RID, and his layouts are much improved also. Based on these pages, so far, I think Rob has proven to his detractors that he's got what it takes to be given this shot. Good job.

    Huh. Still not too sure why IDW insist on having such subpar artwork when there are so many good artists out there. The colors of those previews look good, but the art itself is just as aweful as I remember IDW comics having.

    Someone needs to hire Guido Guidi fulltime so we can get some quality back. Between him and Don, IDW could eventually reach the DW standard.

    I never really had a problem with Rob's artwork in Micromaster to begin with...However that said

    WOW!!:eek: 

    Talk about evolving one's art style, I mean it doesn't even look like the same guy at all. Oooo I haven't bought a TF comic since Beast Wars, but I'm sooo tempted to pick this up

    Rob's art looks pretty good to me and not as rushed as Micromasters and RID. Very well done job on his end. Colors are superb as always.

    As for the story, it doesn't really seem like enough to go on, though it's only the first 5 pages.

    I think that one of the purposes behind these oneshots is plant the seeds for further subplots that will be revisited into the main stories.

    I missed the art mistake before. Now that I've seen it, I'm sure the issue will be riddled with them. It just wouldn't be a Ruffalo piece of work without some glaring errors. Why didn't Dan or Chris catch this?

    hmmm

    From seeing this i get a feeling that Sixshots going to find the Terrorcons allready dead and go on a berserker rage.

    Also I think the reapers are the sweeps because Galvatrons not megatron this time around and proberly a enemy faction. Plus ive seen art of the sweeps with energon scythes :D

    Hmmm... interesting - that WOULD be cool if we have a third faction in this war...

    After all, it seems extremely organised as is - a third faction would throw a monkey wrench in both Prime and Megatron's strategies.
