    I LOVE that cover with Swindle on it, lol. As a Combaticon fan I'm definitely enjoying seeing Swindle get some well-deserved attention (and looking forward to seeing more of the other Combaticons too, which it looks like we're starting to get, as well.) Bumblebee working for SWINDLE of all people is not something I ever expected to see but I'm here for it.

    shame the cover is lame. so you're an artist who's been a fan for a few decades and this is your life long dream finally realised?

    I'm sorry. Please point out the cool parts.

    Is the goofy dumb expressions on their faces cool?

    How about the flat barely detailed amateurish line-art? Is that what you call cool?

    Or is the single color background what counts as cool these days?

    I'm not getting into a stupid argument with you over our different opinions. I think it's cool. You don't. Leave it at that and have a nice day.

    You've not explained your opinion to me how you reached that judgement. You say its cool, but I can't see it. But you won't tell me why you think its cool other than it just is. Me saying "yeah, why?" is a perfectly valid response. Surely it would be easy for you to point out the parts that you do like?

    My opinion is just stating facts. Those are goofy dumb expressions. It is flat and barely-detailed. That background is entirely one color (I assume the artist also colored their own work). I've seen coloring books for little kids that have had more effort into the artwork.

    Maybe, but I don't want to waste my time arguing with you. I've got better things to do tonight. Simple as that.
    Those aren't facts, they're opinions.
    Is it a crime to be happy about getting a job?

    I'm sure MisterJazzz would be available if they ever needed artists.

    I'd hazard a guess at the levels IDW sells at these days that probably can't really afford to pay established artists what they should make.

    Looking at some of Lane Lloyd's other work, I don't hate it.
    I get that their style is probably not what most "Serious TF Fans" want.
    But I dig it in a TFA/FredHembeck sort of way.

    The "God Puncher" pages they have in the Twitter link have a better context and stage the style better.

    I like Alex Milne's work a lot, but honestly if I had to chose between both of these covers, I'd buy the Lloyd one.

    The fu... THE WAR LITERALLY _JUST_ STARTED.

    Can we have, like, the Great War actually HAPPEN first before retreading the same ground we've already covered like 5 times? You know, the one that raged for MILLIONS OF YEARS and eventually spread to other planets?

    I literally don't care if they NEVER get to Earth in this series... we've already seen several different versions of what happens once they get there!!! We can pick whichever G1 continuity we want this story to end up as, or imagine our own! (Maybe this is the "true" Beast Wars backstory, which clearly referenced a specific composite Marvel/Sundown G1 timeline that has never actually been depicted in fiction). We have never had a series that, from its inception, was about the early days of the war (as opposed to a bunch of flashbacks that don't always make sense in context to each other). I don't mind seeing the characters take some time to settle into the roles they've had for literally the past 35 years.

    Also, that Swindle cover is amazing. Milne for (IDW) President.
