    I'll give the first issue a shot, but I'm really not feeling the summary of the story or the art. It might turn out to be great, but first impressions alone aren't particularly doing it for me

    No Nick Roche? That's a disappointment already.

    I mean, I'm willing to give this a chance since I love the Wrecker and Lawrence is a fine artist but still, lack of Nick Roche is a disadvantage already.

    Really? Yeah, this is going to be a good book. Every good wreckers book has a cast of weirdos.

    They look awfully cheery for people who are presumably about to be horribly killed.

    Guess it's like Ironfist being deluded about what being a wrecker is really like.

    I would love to start reading the comics again, but this is just not appealing to me so pass. I guess I just want something more violent and mature when I think of the Wreckers.

    Oh believe me, I intend to give this a chance, and my completionist nature demands I read it.

    Pretty much what I’m expecting here.

    I don't really mind that the characters here are smiling (which seems to be a silly complaint of all things). Every new incarnation of a team has the right to be interpreted in a different way and, let's be honest, if the new writer was doing the same thing from the previous continuity they would be immediately compared to Nick Roche which would be an automatic loss (Since not even James Roberts could match Roche's work IMO). I'm cool with something new.

    does it matter? The complaints are coming from the same people who have something to complain about with something with every aspect of the franchise

    So we have Thunderclash, Hot Shot, Ricochet, and Minerva on this team, and who are the other 2?

    Well, violent =/= mature, in fact sometimes those things can be opposites.

    But that being said, no where does it say there isn't going to be violence.

    they’re smiling because they’re on camera. You can see the camera balls floating all over the them. It’s pretty obvious the pre war version of these wreckers are not unlike Meterofire from cyberverse. It’s either 2 things: reality TV or military proeganda promotion. This is a squad that existed before the war kicked off. The war has just started and it’s obvious these guys are off world and handle not extreme threats but still threats that they don’t take serious because they don’t really have to. I’d wager by the end of this series a lot of them will be killed and/or the remaining will be beaten up and wartorn heavily traumatized into the wreckers people all know


    But people wanna complain because they can

    If there's something that I don't like from that cover is what seems to be the new Wreckers symbols. I just love the classic blue ones.

    Also, I really want a new Thunderclash figure and an actual Aileron toy.

    can't wait to read this, wondering if that minerva is based on a toy we haven't see yet, though

    This looks fine, but part of me gets the feeling it's called "wreckers" purely for brand recognition. I feel like IDW might've thought this would be fine, but that it could fall through the cracks due to lower sales recently (due to a lot of reasons) without some sort of "name" on the project. Also since the spotlight series never did well.

    I like the use of somewhat out there characters that's nice. Part of me thinks this is partially inspired by Thunderclash's whole deal in idw1, but that might just be a coincidence.

    Also I feel like asking for Roche here could be a mistake since I think Roche is at his best when he knows what he wants to write, as compared to when he's asked to write something, or at least that's why I assumed he was always on the sparing side with his TF content.

    Well, if nothing else, maybe this can finally be Thunderclash's time to shine. I still to this day do not understand what the hell was going on with him in MTMTE/Lost Light, except that his arc was undoubtedly a casualty of the season 3 relaunch and rushed ending.

    Also, the premise itself sounds like an Autobot version of the Stunti-con Job from the Animated continuity. Which was a great idea, so here's hoping it works well here too.
