    Well, I have to say that Livio’s grasp of lighting has improved.

    Livio seems to have really improved as an artist. Props to the guy.

    I agree but the problem is the true orders (granted we only have a month to really look at) don't seem reflect the improvement of the work. :(

    I've made many critical comments on this board of Livio's work, but I think this is much improved. I can easily see the artwork and recognize the characters.

    Livio proved time and again that he is a painter best suited for non-robots on very large canvas and not panel work... which kinda works here since these are all giant splash pages. But whenever he has to cram things into panels, it fails again.(Though I have been wondering whether someone else is doing lineart for him on this comic, as the characters actually have distinct outlines now and are recognizable!)
    That said, the writing saves this comic, it is still the most interesting thing IDW produced in the (more than a) year since the reboot. I wonder how/why Devastator went berserk, which is I assume why the Constructicons were banished.
    His coloring never had problems, but he tended to paint over the sketches of robots he barely outlined before. I have a suspicion that IDW assigned someone to do the lineart for him uncredited, same as how DW had people re-ink Pat Lee's sketches. It just looks too detailed for Livio's style who likes to muddle things with colors, unrestrained by lineart..

    Really like the art here. Props to Livio, this is miles beyond what I recall seeing previously.

    Maybe Strika, while the legs are different, the upper body looks a lot like the deluxe Generations Warpath figure and that toy was reused by the club to make her. And since she was retroactively made the large pink female Autobot that appeared in the G1 episode Five Faces of Darkness, part IV, this could be a new design based on those elements.
