If I were being passive aggressive, I would have put red commas in your post after I quoted it.
After finally catching up on my comic issues, I have added Transformers to my subscribe list. The story is a slower build. That isn't a bad thing, that is a matter of taste. I know Ta Nehisi Coates also receives that criticism and I'm just loving his Captain America run. What I really enjoy about these Transformers issues are the sense of tension, of an impending disaster that can be seen happening but uncertain on when or how.
The preview is an appealing show don't tell set of panels. That title panel is very well done in my opinion. This is certainly not an action heavy story at this point. The art portrays a very alien sensibility to me. My guess is that this slower pre-war build up will last awhile. Perfectly understandable anyone not enjoying this pacing or art style bailing out.
I know it's an alternate cover, but damn it's good to see that G1 Elita design again.
I'll be honest...
This was 6-7 more issues than I expected Rubble to last. So congrats?
I'm glad that he wasn't an introduce and kill off character in one issue. Lasting through the first arc, despite thinking he was on the killing room floor the entire time, did give me time to connect to him as a character. Plus this arc established the importance and scarcity of newly forged cybertronians being a big deal. It sort of reminds me of the opening of Children of Men, though not as desperate.
Now that is a badass cover, I’d get a print of that for the hobby room. Have some proper Elita representation in the collection...... Primus knows her figures are awful.

A Guidi cover that homages the G1 Marvel comics?
Broken clocks, too, can occasionally be right.
Guido Guidi is one of my favourite Transformers artists. Love the Marvel Comics vibes he brings and how accurately he depicts the G1 art style.
Nice! Le Femme Elita. I always wanted someone to do a nod to that movie with one of the fembots.
Which movie exactly?
This preview is pretty uninspiring, but I'm enjoying the continuing misunderstandings between fans who hate both MTMTE/LL *and* the new series, and fans who hate MTMTE/LL but like the new series.
We have fun here.
La Femme Nikita. The classic "Pretty Woman Posing Provocatively With Gun Behind A Wall" pose.
That the same actress from Innocent Blood?
I haven't liked IDW G1 since shortly after AHM ended. That was my meaning.
