    You know that sinking feeling you get when you witness the destruction of an entire planet? Rodimus and company are about to feel that. Hardcore.

    That sure looks a lot like Airachnid disrespecting Onslaught and Blast-Off's personal space.

    Oh crap! I didn't even notice those. As if she wasn't creepy enough.

    That's a really great set of covers. With maybe the exception of the Lost Light one they all tell you so much more than the solicit, which -I think- is how it should be.

    Great covers.

    And yay, we're going to see the Combaticons again!

    And Aracinid in IDW? Yes please!

    Curious about those Hasbro Heroes Sourcebooks.

    Hopefully IDW does something a bit more interesting with Airachnid.

    Sooooo I know the legs are different but would they really put Airachnid in when we already have a IDW Blackarachnia on Eukaris?

    Just because they share some visual similarities doesn't override one or the other. Blackarachnia and Airachnid are far-and-away not the same type of character.

    Wasn't expecting Scott to add Mnemosurgery in TAAO. It's nice that they're introducing more characters

    They're just being bros, man. Two bros, just hangin' out, one embracing the other tenderly, the other looking up at him as if to say "I feel safe in your arms, bro", as all best bros do.

    I'm kinda bored of the current Lost Light story. Let's get back to the actual Lost Light and confront Getaway and the others.

    I'm bored my it as well but I'm gonna see how it plays out. Curiosity about Rung's alt-mode is keeping me around.

    *snerk* :D :D :D 
    Well I think On/Off is confirmed, at least in Blast Off's mind.... :D 
    I get the sense that may be a depiction of Blast Off's mind. Looks like the effects of combining plus whatever Airachnid is doing (maybe she's sent in to repair the mental damage the Combaticons suffered?) and it may lead to a lot of inner struggles/tangled mental webs.
    That cover is beautiful, I want a print of it. Can't wait to see more Combaticons, especially my fav Blast Off.

    Oh goodie, the breakout villain of Prime makes the leap to IDW. Just... Just great.

    Then again, maybe she'll be written well?


    Why is everyone laughing?

    EDIT: Also, that Lost Light cover is really dull. The art itself is fantastic as always, but it's just everyone flying towards the camera in the most unexciting way. I'm used to Roche covers having more personality.

    ...I can't look at that TAAO cover without thinking of Chuck Tingle.

    Clearly just Bros with vows.
