    5 parts is pretty huge to start off with compared to previous arcs. But whatev, it\'s one shorter than Infiltration. At least the title is interesting.

    Not a fan of naming issues after songs, sorry.

    Then you'll really hate JJBA then.
    That aside, 5 parts is good number to start off. It won't be rushed and it won't drag on.

    Just read this.
    IDW Chairman Loaned Company $28 Million
    I believe in the big business language they call this as an "oopsiee-doodle" I mean, seriously, when the chairman has to loan millions to the company?
    I am gonna be surprised if this comic even comes out before IDW keels over.

    Five parts? Nice. Unique name? Nice. March release? Okay I’ll deal with it. There’s not much else to read currently running. Unless you’re reading gobots which I stopped cause it’s disappointing.

    The only thing I worry about with a new writer is... I don't want to see another Costa; but I feel like this will be fine since there aren't any humans in the story as of yet so he has to write them as characters.

    Some people I know became so infatuated with it that it actually has caused that I don't want to see the series at all (plus, it's too long for my taste).

    About the title, maybe it's more about me disliking naming issues after songs or poems I don't see a direct conection with the issue, than using song titles per se.
    New Cybertron in Optimus Prime, for example.

    Wake me up when we get a substantial interview with the writer so I can get a feel for his feel on the property. This kind of tease does nothing for me.

    Every time I see the covers depicting Optimus,I get more excited for the upcoming Siege Leader. It's one of the best Optimus designs I've ever seen,and it's been a while since I've been this hyped for an Optimus. A Galaxy Force homage with an Ultra Magnus trailer? Yes please. I can't wait to see pictures of him from Toy Fair.

    Well, what’s worth noting there is that the loans are related to their TV production wing, as opposed to the comics. TV isn’t cheap especially if you’re self-financing like IDW apparently is.

    I mean it’s a decent design. I was much more into the refined evergreen design in Optimus Prime by Kei Zama. Felt like the perfect Optimus for me. But this one is good enough. I’ll wait for the super mode though.
