    Just read issue 17 and can honestly say it was one of the shittest comics I've ever seen.
    Tons of space wasted with basically the same image repeating over and over again, very flat artwork with no spatial dimension etc..
    Hopefully, they sort this shit out... I'm a huge Transformers fan before anyone tries to critic me for having an unfavorable opinion.

    I actually want these to be good like LL series so I come back every now and again to dip my toes in.

    Y\'know, a story where Nightbeat and a team of \"rookies\" including Strongarm and Bumper investigate Ratbat and Swindle\'s criminal dealings sounds, on paper, to be exactly my kind of thing.

    Alas, nevertheless, etc.

    Based on the Diamond numbers, you're one of the rare few who even cared enough to ever start reading it. Corporate floppies about as relevant to today's kids as banjo music or old time radio.


    Don't solicit a mini-series or OGN until the entire thing is in the proverbial can, then you don't need to worry about multiple art styles because the artist can't keep up with the deadline. That goes for every publisher and artist.

    I agree with you in that 17 wasn't the best. Personally, it's my least favorite issue thus far in how disjointed it felt from everything else and could have been completely settled in 4 pages but...Lost Light.
    This is really the bar we're setting?

    So just voicing a dissenting opinion now makes you a troll? Sounds about right. :^) He should just lap up whatever Hasbro and IDW puts out like a good little consumer.

    Does it really trigger you people this much that someone just doesn't like these comics?

    Maybe he just reads the overview on TFwiki or something, or are you implying that he's still reading them and just lying that he stopped...? Or maybe you like these comics and you're looking too deeply into a comment from someone who does not.

    Preach brother. :music

    Hey...They were actually engaging stories.
    Seeing Deathsaurus as an anti-hero or being on edge from the DJD presence, phase sixers, Minimus Ambus and so on.
    LL developed alot of interesting new lore for the franchise when it wasn't being a P.C propaganda engine.

    Honestly, 17 was terrrrible! The pages with the titan hurt.

    I\'m glad people are reading these and enjoying it. It keeps the franchise goin... I wish IDW would pick up where Marvel Transformers: Generation 2, left off. I still keep em in in my nightstand and re-read em.

    This was all More than Meets the Eye though? Lost Light gave us suicide clinics run by psychic aliens, godhood Pharma , and transdimensional aliens who were introduced in the second to last chapter to do nothing.

    Also Grimlocks pregnancy with a giant purple human. Strange times.

    You say those things like they're bad - they're all varying degrees of insanely brilliant to just insanely different.

    (and the aliens were part of the meta-plot literally all along.)

    One mans genius is another mans hack.

    Edit: I am simply putting this edit here to emphasize that my tone is a joking one since it reads a bit rude. Genuinely, i'm a believer in "to each their own".

    The organic baby Decepticon was unnecessary and didn’t add anything to the story.

    I assume either they get to throw things against the wall, or it was part of a plan that was cut.
