    The crossover is only three months - November and December are just the launches for the new post-crossover ongoings.

    The mystery book is interesting. I'm guessing it's Inhumanoids-but-with-a-different-name-for-trademark-reasons, I can't see why they'd bother keeping it a secret if it was just a Revolutionaries successor or something.

    Hmm. Reading through all that talk of magic... could Visionaries be the new title?

    I am one of those many people you are referencing. To me, 3 months is indeed 3 months.

    This is one of the greatest jokes I've ever seen on these boards.

    So there he is,
    Joe Colton. Some how surviving the Dire Wraith infection, at the cost of his right hand.

    It seems to me he's going to be taking on a reluctant villain role here, he's doing what he thinks is best for planet Earth, and that means the death of all Transformers. Like Gary Oldman's character from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

    The art looks good too, dare say even better then Revolution.

    And with all the talk of magic, I'm willing to bet that it is Visionaries that's coming in December.

    That fits, as they bother to make him a bio in Revolution and the Sourcebook.

    So looking forward to buying nothing on this list. Or any new book IDW publishes anymore.

    Haha. Same.

    Guess I'll buy some LL if the next arc is good, otherwise I'm essentially out on IDW!

    I'm even over that. Like, between the break for Revolution, the re-numbering, and it not really impressing out of the gate (a six issue arc was NOT the way to start a relaunch), the passion I had for MTMTE just died. This is why events can be so harmful. They kill momentum.

    Glad to see there is only one isse of a core TF book that I will be "required" to buy, skipping the one shots, and won't even give the core first strike book a flip-through

    I'd be surprised if any isse of this series sells more than 5,000 copies. Which beggars the question, does IDW not see this?

    whoever in IDW thought these "events" would help drive sales needs their head read, followed by a swift sacking!.

    You do not have to keep complaining all the time, since these comics from other franchises do not affect the comics of Transformers, you are not required to read them all. Revolution was a fun crossover (Transformers had other events worse at IDW). In addition to Revolutionaries be Transfoemrs best re-interview since MTMTE S1.
