    Last I read of it, the original article from THR said Kirkman is expected to *not* be writing any of the supposed TF comics by Skybound.

    That being said, the Skybound deal is still not set in stone and Kirkman is still under fire with that colorist guy suing him over pay regarding the Invincible cartoon. So if no one nips that in the bud, I would not be surprised if Hasbro opts to shop the TF comic license elsewhere.

    Damn yes, more Smokescreen.
    Also glad seeing Griffith's art again. Storywise I think it would be nice if the Autobots could win just once and kill and capture some of the 'Cons this time. I would love to seem them conquering a city at some point, to make the war more complex. There has to be a place where the majority isn't siding with Megatron, especially not after the coup. The old life wasn't that bad.

    I'll just throw in I have been enjoying the latest releases.

    Wreckers was good, left it open for more. Maybe we'll get a one-shot to wrap things up.

    Maybe its me, but all these characters sound the same, just "snark" all around.

    It's particularly weird for Cheetor.

    I haven’t been paying attention: is this an ongoing? Or a limited series?

    Beast Wars? It's an ongoing until all the IDW stuff ends at the end of the year.

    Ah ok. I thought I remembered it being a 12 issue limited series. Guess I remembered wrong. Thanks

    I think it was supposed to be, but it sold well enough to get upgraded to an ongoing.

    Just got done reading the new Beast Wars. While reading I realize, "Ya know what's nice about this? It's pure Beast Wars action. No pontificating over who's hooking up with who. Just pure fun."

    Then, someone in the mailbag section praises the relationship between Primal and Dinobot and says they hope it "develops into something... more". This endless need to ship characters is exactly how TF comics have ended up where they are now.

    Please, keep online blog ships out of stories. They are so much better without them. Beast Wars and Shattered Glass are the last TF comics I truly enjoy anymore because they know how to tell good Transformers stories.

    I always thought Cheetor and Rattrap were the originators of "snark" and other characters developed that behavior as time went on during the run of the CGI series.

    I feel like Rhinox became king of sarcasm by the last season.
