    I've read it now. Story is heading in an interesting direction, but I'm really not digging the art, especially after the beauty that was AHM, Kickback (I think that's who said it) was right about the faces. It's okay for an experimental story, but jarring for an ongoing. Still, looking forward to if Rodi gets to be in charge and BB and Wreckers minis.

    Huh. Sure would have been nice to be able to read the issue before the massive story-ending plot spoiler was rubbed in my face on the front page, there.

    Won't get a chance to pick this up until Friday, so I'm a bit pissed that this was pretty much on the front page w/no spoiler warnings. If it's not too much to ask, could a news staff/admin change the title to something along the lines of "IDW Press Release Regarding Transformers #1-Spoiler Alert" as I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who couldn't pick it up today & dosen't want to be spoiled.

    Still, an interesting concept & I'm interested to see where Costa goes with it.

    Edit:
    Looks like I was correct.

    I've always had a thing for Hellboy myself.

    But that's besides the point. The point is: What IDW needs to do to keep my faith is not pussy out on this. Lose Optimus Prime for a good, long while. We don't need him.

    What we need is a leader with curves:

    Seriously, imagine if the IDW version of her were the leader. Scary thought.

    Yup. Prowl was written like Ratchet, Prime was written as a tool, etc, etc. But still, as negative as I've been towards IDW lately (especially since the catastophe that was CONTINUUM) I still didn't hate it. It was better than I thought it would be, thanks to my ultra-low expectations no doubt.

    My thing is, though... wow, how desparate does IDW seem the past few weeks? First, they gave away 11 (yes ELEVEN) pages of this 22-page story for free online, including a massive spoiler. Then, the morning it's released, before most people have even had an opportunity to purchase it much less read it, they spoil the whole damn thing? Seems that they are mighty desperate to attract new readers... even more so than usual. Wonder if the backlash they've been recieving is getting them nervous?

    I just love how IDW keeps trying to make things seem so exciting by OMG!!! Killing a main Autobot!!! And now Prime resigns?OMG!!!!1!!!1! Optimus Prime resigning is pretty much just Optimus Prime dying the only difference is they don't need to come up with some way to resurrect him when he comes back

    Yeah it was a good read, I've been re-watching G1 and I see a lot of story elements that are similar to the cartoon, (besides the whole concept of TF) not sure if they were intentional or not but I like it :]

    And about those faces...

    Soooooo do I even need to BUY this issue? Seriously, why doesn't IDW just post the whole issue online? What else is there to give away? I've pretty much read the whole issue on TFW in the past couple of weeks with how many "sneak peeks" we've been getting.


    I'll wait till issue #2 I guess

    What if it's one of the lesser known Supreme Commanders in various TF continuities.

    Hint: A famous sword of minicons is named after him.

    Wow. I cannot believe the people that run this site post that kind of spoiler on the front page in big blue letters. You guys just suck for ruining this issue for me.

    I'm glad they posted, it saved me from wasting money on this stuff IDW puts out. I'll be glad when someone else gets the license.
