    Oh sure. The idea of the Cosmic Carnival isn't a bad idea. SPACE CIRCUS is an old sci-fi plot. The Galaxy Rangers nailed that ages ago. The Transformers execution was terrible: Sky Lynx pimped himself out for circus tickets. WTF?

    ... Hard to argue against that.

    I'm aware. I pointed that out because a lot of people assume it's different. Even more prolific writers keep another job. Like Charles Soule, who I think definitely has "big name" status at this point, has comparable output to Aaron but still worked full time as a lawyer the last time I heard. The only people who really make big money are the ones with pieces in media development, like Brian Michael Bendis after Jessica Jones and Spider-verse. And honestly, I'm just assuming he is.

    Cosmic Disneyland, or even the Cosmic Circus MAYBE. But a Cosmic Carnival? What terrible failings in logic happened where Sky Lynx of all people decided to debase himself by performing for a bunch of space hillbilly carnies?

    You know what? On second thought, that's exactly how this franchise reboot needs to happen. Optimus dies in a horrible carnival accident and the Decepticarnies are to blame for shoddy Space Ferris Wheel maintenance. I just want a nice, clean splash panel of Prime dead, face first in a paper cone of cotton candy-shaped energon.

    You might be the first person I've heard defend any aspect of Kiss Players.

    Hitler is why we have the Volkswagen bug, the Milgram experiments defined modern psychology, and Michael Jackson gave us some of the best music of the 80s. Not many things in life are pure evil.

    (Kiss players comes close though.)

    There's no need to compare Michael Jackson to Kiss Players, let's try and keep some level of decency.

    In all seriousness, maybe this reboot will take the same concepts issued in Cyberverse and give us a better blow by blow than the 5 minute bites we've been getting. I do like how Cyberverse draws on the rich lore that IDW1 gave us in that show. I have hopes that this iteration will do it as well, but in a substantive fashion that older readers will enjoy.

    Haven't had a chance to watch Cyberverse yet (there's probably something around the region blocking but I'm lazy) but that sounds good. Without putting more than a moments thought into it, seems like lore is one of the better places to be drawing from past work and then build off from that. An example would probably drive that point home, maybe later...

    It's going to be SUPER AWKWARD to abandon 13 years of IDW and find out characters like Chromia and Windblade live on Cybertron like everyone else and there may be no 13 tribes with each special Prime to lead them. I know they want to go back to a simpler time but...man I'm going to miss the GOOD SHIT from IDW Transformers.

    With that said I do hope they keep the political angle the stories had, but still have fun action moments and no two-panel action scenes like LL had.

    So Cyberverse actually borrows elements from IDW? Hate to steer a bit off topic but how is the show currently? I didn't like how the show looked so I stayed away, but apparently it's been getting good reception.
