    Er, most not really, most manga arcs usually takes about 7-25 chapters to finish. And usually are weekly. yes, there are monthlies too, but it's weekly more often.

    That is, assuming IDW can consistently maintain a release schedule.

    When was the last time they sustained that?

    So here's something that just occurred to me, and there's a solid chance I'm not the first one to think this.

    Now its obvious that the Optimus design in this comic is the core robot of the Siege leader class figure as opposed to the voyager figure. And as we all know the Siege leader Optimus is an homage to Cybertron/Galaxy Force Optimus.

    So what I'm wondering is if

    A. His vehicle mode in the comic will be the whole fire engine of doom from the show, or just the cab, and

    B. Maybe, just maybe, he'll power up and use the Super Mode of the associated toy.

    (Which is the best Optimus Prime design in the franchise in my opinion. Well that and the base mode Optimus)

    I really hope one of if not both of these get to happen, because it would be amazing.
