    Where's Zama on Optimus? I mean, Casey's good and all, but I was loving Zama. If she's not back, I think I'm done with IDW for good at this point. Also, why the fuck are they still letting that hack Ramondelli draw anything? They treat Milne like garbage, but keep on giving us books full of shadowy, unidentifiable robots with mooshy faces? What the fuck, IDW?

    Oh hey look Trypticon is back. That's not really something you would want to build up to, nah.

    She's back on #9. She's not going anywhere, fill-in artists being brought in to allow the regular artists time to get ahead is standard fare at this point.

    She's not done. Second volume is just consisting of several artists.

    And they don't treat Milne awful. He fully admitted on twitter he was always running behind and delaying the mtmte. Yes he had an injury but he also admitted he'd have trouble keeping up sometimes. He wasnt shunned from IDW. Hes doing the rom book.

    If you think livio is such a hack then start posting your art and send it to IDW wanting a job.

    I hope Grimlock reunites with the Dinobots one day, it\'s been way too long. Even then they really haven\'t been all that interesting since Furman left, and I don\'t really like the new member.

    Yeah, except when the "fill-in" is Lawrence and he brings down an entire book series with his mediocre sunday-cartoon strip "art". But phew on Zama coming back, at least IDW has one good ongoing left now that TAAO is going away and The Lost Light is slumming it with Lawrence. Oh, and @Mattymo, I drew a picture of me, rolling my eyes at you, but you can't look at it because it's too beautiful for the public to see, y'all'd melt like you were staring at the ark of the covenant. ;)

    Revolutionaries is looking fantastic! Barbers at his finest here. As for Optimus Prime...Well, I hope some of that quality pours into that book seeing how underwhelming the last issue was. Though it is a Jazz centric issue so I have hope but ugh Pyra what has gotten into you? It's like having Prowl all over again but way less fun.

    Wow, so much stuff!

    Revolutionaries has got to be the most intriguing of them all, what was with those first two pages???

    Pyra Magna is being written like the stranger that's offering kids candy to get into the van.

    I'm guessing Revolutionaries is a set up for Onyx Prime's return with Domitus Major and the beast-formers referencing their master

    On Optimus Prime, Nosecone is still a jerk, and can't Slide still turn into her trailer and have someone drag her around

    With Salvation, I'm hoping we a (good) explanation for the return of Trypticon since the guy was pretty much frozen the last we saw him

    Edit: So Prowl's been on Earth for about 100,000 years and the Deceptions were still on Phase 1 for that long. I've heard of slow progress but that's ridiculous

    I'm so excited! Salvation is finally coming out! Gosh I love Punishment/Redemption so much! The grand and grim tone of the art and the solemn yet hopeful stories fit perfectly together!

    Snarl doesn\'t actually think Trypticon\'s Grimlock, right? That\'s just some dumb banter between them?

    Honestly, it's really good just from a TF fan perspective. Most of the main cast is TF characters, we finally saw Predaking last issue, the Hearts of Steel characters are showing up. It's wild and awesome.

    I like how the art is changing, not as dark as before. I could use a bit more colors.
