    I quite like the art. It has charm. But @SMOG is bang on - it's like the comics you drew as a kid. "Argh. A baddie." "Don't worry." "Thank. You saved me." "Let's all get ice cream." That might even be why I find it oddly charming, but it really needs to do more than that.

    Not feeling it which is weird because I certainly liked G.I.Joe vs Transformers.

    Yeah, I don't even mind the art itself, but the visual storytelling and scripting is weirdly primitive and childlike. If it's deliberate, it's pitch perfect... but that imitation doesn't necessarily make it compelling. Incredible Change-Bots walked that line better.

    But this is one page from issue #3, so maybe this isn't representative.

    Man , the utter hate this is getting is a minor let down , after all those years , quite a few folks have dreampt of this sort of thing happening, and never thought to happen considering that Hasbro owned it ... And it\'s still a bit odd that Hasbro has even allowed this has happened , I have always been curious as too how this would play out ..

    I have half a mind to dig up my 50-page epic wherein CyKill stole the space bridge to crash Cybertron into Earth just because he's a jerk. Should be in a Trapper Keeper that got boxed up with my Walkman 25 years ago...

    tbqh it\'s wild we\'re getting ANY GoBots fiction, much less something as straight-up sci-fi as this is. If the art isn\'t your thing, okay, whatever, but like, it\'s a GoBots comic and there\'s no reason for it to exist at all, so just enjoy it.

    Might be because VS was a collab while Gobots is Scioli doing everything.

    I'm glad to see in not the only one who dislikes that art. The Twitter thread for one of the earlier issues was filled with praise.

    Reminds me of Linkara's Lightbringer in terms of quality.

    This art is about as bad as Transformers:Animated.

    If that’s what we were getting, I wouldn’t mind. But we’re getting bad retro art, bad retro storytelling. Calling something retro isn’t an excuse to not put some actual quality in. I can still read and enjoy some actual comics from the 70s as they are of good quality that doesn’t age. But then there were the bad comics with poor dialogue, poor story, poor artwork and poor panel layout. This is what this Gobots is.

    Some people here would take that as a huge compliment to be likened to Animated.
