    These books are so lifeless and formulaic I can't even believe it.

    And yeah, Prowl as a prick is tiring. More than that, it really fails to establish IDW2 as anything new. It almost all the same character acting almost the same in almost the same story as how IDW 1 ended.

    Not sure how much the low pay is for them, but isn't Guido doing the '84 comic? If the pay rate now for comics is so low why did Guido or Milne do '84 or the Terminator crossover at all then? Otherwise they just wouldn't have taken the job of drawing anything for IDW. Presumably, this makes me wonder if they don't mind the low rates, and shows how much of a shitshow IDW is right now. Because instead of using their well-talented artists to possibly get more reader eye candy revenue, they'll instead use this "webcomic art" for god knows how long.

    And what about those that actually like the new artists?

    Also, even Milne and Guido were the new guys somewhere.

    To each their own, I don't have any personal gripes against the current ongoing artists. I just think they shouldn't be working on something like a TF comic set in this era. We need artists (whether they be new or not) that shows the grand, empire-like, of the Transformers race before a war that will eventually be their downfall. So far this comic is a year old, and the art for this ongoing still isn't fitting that theme at all.

    Post-MTMTE IDW in a nutshell (though to be frank, much of it before was going in that direction too).
    And the comic industry is wondering why nobody is buying their products anymore...

    The art actually makes me think of the Movie/Animated/RID tie-in Paninin UK comics, sometimes.
    In fact sometimes the art in those was better.
    Wish someone finally scanned them in full, I only ever found a few of them online. The writing was pretty good.

    Strongarm showing up in the comic had better mean she shows up in WfC. Been waiting for her to crossover from RiD.
