Certainly does look like an interesting month. Surprised that they're doing Monstrosity as a four-issue mini in print.

Oh, great. RID #18 sounds like Arcee: The Issue.

Something I couldn't possibly be less interested in.

Hmm. They're releasing Monstrosity as real-life issues? They didn't do that for Autocracy did they? Also of note is that that issue is 32 pages, which equals 4 digital issues, and is billed as 1 of 4, which would suggest that Monstrosity is going to run to 16 digital issues rather than the 12 than Autocracy ran for...

Also, I guess Shockpoint is starting in October with (unless they combine them or something for the event) RID and MTMTE #22. That'd match up with Roberts saying MTMTE 14-21 conclude the first big arc of the comic.

Nah, Monstrosity's been confirmed for 12 issues as well.

Ads, man, ads. Any random IDW TF issue is 32 pages, with 22 pages of comic and ten pages of covers and ads. Four sets of three issues at 24 pages each for these, presumably.

Oh, yeah, course. Totally failed to notice everything else was listed 32 pages too... >_<

Just looked at the covers. Skids vs. Legislators looks pretty cool, but that Arcee one just looks... odd.

Damn I want IDW to normalize Arcee and introduce other femmes something fierce. It's the one remaining point of suckitude in their otherwise awesome ongoing books.


-ZacWilliam, it'd be so easy to do with the Nails already around, just fix it already!
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

"We can't give you any names, but we're going to use the pronoun 'her' because it's not like there's only one female Cybertronian or anything!"
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.
