    I emailed my comic shop and asked them to order this for me, being nice people and already a customer I would prefer to pay them for a comic than them pay Skybound and pay for shipping for the privilege of giving comics away. FCBD is a sick joke played on the comic stores.

    Alot of people don't know that the LCS retailers have to pay for these "free" books, which is why some retailers don't participate in FCBD

    That Shockwave cover is awesome! I can't believe this has got 8 printings. That's insane!

    That cover with Shockwave is rad as hell. We've gotten some seriously cool covers from Skybound so far.

    Yep agree. It might have been relevant a few years ago but the comic landscape has changed now and I dont feel its needed anymore.

    I'm not sure it generates the business they are hoping for.

    Yeah. Even Soundwave here, while he kills them, it's not sadism that motivates him, but practicality, and he considers it regretible. Big difference from Starscream and "Haha, fun to go squish!"

    Yeah, Soundwave is cold, but not cruel. Starscream was a POS.

    Can’t help but notice that the allegedly American aircraft carrier looks like an awful lot like the Admiral Kuznetsov and is carrying what appears to be MiG-25s lol

    Soundwave is thinking like a leader. Knows what must be done even if he's not happy about it. Thundercracker has a touch of idw about him.

    Loving all the covers especially the prime with the nemesis above him and astrotrain.

    Looking forward to this so much...

    Hope that fact they acknowledge Thundercracker is a "fan favorite" means they will do him justice, as half those fans came from his depiction at IDW

    Considering what I've seen from this comic, I was actually legitimately expecting TC to just crush that human in his hand

    I like how the TC scene directly parallels Starscream killing Carly\'s dad, shows the difference.

    The artist does not really convey well that TC is supposed to be feeling sympathy for the humans. He looked the same as Starscream when he squeezed that guy in issue 2 or whatever.
