    I like both. But this pace is difficult to defend. The additional previews seem to be aware that attention is waning.

    The comic should be used for toy reveals from time to time. Maybe pack in an exclusive TCG card.

    Yes, there are certainly strengths to the new series but blowing three pages on variations of Bumblebee moping, with art that fails dismally to convey nuances of expression and dialogue that's boilerplate at best, is alarming to say the least. Everything we've had so far could have been a really tight, intense and intriguing 3-issue arc - the fact that it's been twice that long turns it into a meandering crawl.

    Original Marvel US and UK were similar. Not every issue had action, but a slow build, leading to a number of issues with the action.

    I think IDW may have spoiled us with so much happening in each issue, many aren't used to a slower pace.

    Love that cover. Shame it'll be $10 at the LCS.

    Am I the only one, hoping this version of Bumblebee jumps.

    Also, Bumblebee's scale compared to the buildings around him, seems to be way off.

    New continuity means they can fix the stuff I didn't like.

    That answer work for you, since you feel the need to critique my reading habits and question my fiction preferences?

    These comics have been hot garbage for a while now. This honestly has to be the most boring series yet, toping the emo "its all my fault" Optimus Prime series.

    Man... bring back that Roberts writing from the Lost Light.

    \"It\'s not your fault...\" ...sounds more like an apology about this book than what happened to...

    Man, back to this artist again? THEY CAN\'T CONVEY EMOTION OR MAJESTY.

    Ruckley... STOP SCRIPTING SCENES THAT REQUIRE THESE BEAUTIFUL VISTAS AND BACKGROUNDS. THEY WON\'T BE EXECUTED PROPERLY.

    When I read a comic and am literally distracted by the conviction that I could DEFINITELY do it better myself.. that\'s a PROBLEM.

    At least three artists worked on it, one of them being Andrew Griffith, who is excellent.
    But yeah the art in the preview sucks ass

    There's a real restraint here, dispite the whole of cybertron being involved the cast is small.... and mostly relevant to siege toys (funny that)

    I want more unlikely characters interacting together before the war. I want Bombshell and Wheeljack working in a lab, Grabble and Hoist working with the Construticons...something interesting.

    Theres limitless potential for different characters to interact and add drama.

    Jesus Christ, could this be any more boring?

    All I get from these previews is mopey fuckin robots literally sitting/standing around doing nothing. If these previews are meant to entice readers in any capacity, they are failing miserably.

    *sigh*

    My stink ass has decided to drop the book. Shame. The book seemed like it had potential, now it just comes across as BORING.
