    That's okay, I understand what you mean. There are plenty of people in this community who are ready for something new, who I didn't properly credit in my original post. Working in the creative industry, it frustrates me to see people disliking someone's creation on the grounds that it isn't repurposed material from before. Hence my (perhaps blunt) original post.

    I think a combination of modern nostalgia pop culture, the Transformers franchise's growing tendency to call back to older iterations, and the focus around resources like TFWiki and the AllSpark Almanacs just means that a lot of fans find themselves leaning back on old stories, characters and details in new works. Heck, even I'm suspect to this - I admit that one of my primary interests in the new comic is to spend time with some of the old characters again, and that my interest wouldn't be as strong if this comic starred a completely new cast. Fingers crossed the story takes us in new directions though, with memorable new faces.

    We don’t but when we see something is bad, it deserves to be criticised. I keep reading the IDW2 comics hoping to find issues I like but am regularly let down.

    I think this is going to be his first appearance outside of a single shot of him from last issue. So really no one knows.

    I only see three pages plus covers and the first page insert?

    Not five. Is this one of those 'we cannot share P4 due to a thing' moments?

    It's literally just the original preview plus the Items you mentioned.

    I finally got caught-up once I heard things got less-boring. Excited for this.

    My functioning eyes mostly, it looks amateurish. Look at how goofy Shrapnel looks in the panel.

    Compare it to the art in AHM from almost 12 years ago.

    I'm sorry, but I just can't see what you're talking about. I love the art from IDW2. I has such dynamic shapes and line work, and colours are nice a vibrant. They really pop. If you don't like it, fair enough, but I wouldn't say it's bad. Not by a long shot
