    Could the shorter previews be because some of these are the final issues and there's spoiler concerns?

    Remember in the Deadpool movie where Deadpool is
    dying
    and he’s taking a long time doing so, turning what should have been an emotional moment into an awkward, tedious and drawn-out affair?

    That’s how I feel about IDW right now.

    A rare scene of Transformers shooting / being shot at in an IDW2 book and not all standing around talking, although there’s four pages of that in this preview.

    Its good when the robot shoot at the other robot, thats how you know its mature/good storytelling, when the robot shoots the other robot.

    Good and mature storytelling is all well and good, but at some point you're going to have to start shooting because this is a war, not a political symposium.

    You know I wanted to write something like "laser beam go pew-pew" but IDW2 does kinda labor its dialogue a bit too much, but it's disingenuous to say it doesnt have 'action' or what-have-you

    Yes, but I think the action in IDW2 is severely undercooked, almost as an afterthought.

    It's easy to claim IDW's stuff has no action if someone were to only ever base their opinions on the previews and didn't actually read any of them. Not that any of that is happening here, of course.

    I'm a little behind on the IDW2 lore, but isn't being taken over by Exarkon basically rewriting your spark so you're no longer there? And even if he jumps bodies it still kills you?


    Well RIP Flamewar...
