    Just curious what people are going to be picking up, and what people think is going to be worthwhile to read as the Hasbroverse starts rolling out.

    Personally I'm picking up Lost Light, TAAO, Jem & Misfits, and will probably pickup at least a couple of issues of Revolutionaries & MASK until I determine whether they're worth it or not. Optimus Prime... I don't know. I like some of the characters in that series, but reading RID/Transformers was always more of a slog than MTMTE or TAAO. Will probably collect it on sale unless it starts getting really rave reviews.

    I read them all. Except for Jem.

    Reading all the other stuff helps me pass the time till the Transformers stuff comes out.

    I regularly follow Lost Light, Optimus Prime, and Revolutionaries. I own one issue of TAAO and like it, so at some point I do want to catch up on the rest of it.

    I read all of them save for the Jem books, since they're in their weird "part of the universe but not part of the universe" space. I'll probably drop M.A.S.K. soon though.

    None of them. Revolution killed the IDWverse for me.

    the 3 main transformers books still hold my attention (Lost Light, Optimus Prime, Till all are one)
    Revolutionaries seems like an interesting enough series, so i'll keep up with it for now.
    Skywarp's involvement with gijoe is fascinating to me, but its not enough to make me care enough about gijoe to actually buy their book. so i'll read plot synopsis on tfwiki
    i have no interest in mask, jem, or micronauts

    Lost Light, OP and TAAO. All three are strong Transformers comics - not flawless, but generally well written and each with their own individual flavour.

    All of them except MASK (though I'm behind on Jem).

    (MASK is so bad.)

    EDIT: (But to be clear, given discussion I've seen in this forum, not because Matt Trakker is black. It's just not a good comic.)

    I'll probably give GI Joe and Revolutionaries a look, but the 3 TF titles and ROM are the only guaranteed reads for me.

    Just reading Lost Light and TAAO at the moment. I'm undecided on Optimus Prime but I'm leaning towards picking up the first issue as I've heard positive things.

    I don't really care about the other revolution titles cos meh? Yeah, just meh.

    The three transformers ones, plus the Jem ones which I consider unrelated.

    The others I tradewait.

    Ugh. So disappointed to hear this. Was very much looking forward to this book. Hopefully it gets better?

    Reading all of them (except for the Jem books because those don't really take place in the Revolution verse, even though there is a version of Jem that does exist there).

    I was already picking up and loving all of the Transformers books, so no change there. Rom is very interesting, Micronauts has been improving greatly, and Revolutionaries plays very well with John Barber's strengths. He is a good writer, but an even better editor who has managed to smooth over some of the rougher continuity errors and plot holes in the past. The fact that Revolutionaries picks up a very interesting dropped plotline from G.I. Joe and runs with it has made me very excited. On some level, I wish that G.I. Joe got a complete reboot with Revolution because that series is rife with false starts and abandoned plots (I am kind of miffed that the resolution to the last series is just subtext in the current one). With that being said, within only two issues the current run is one of the strongest IDW has put out for the series and I really hope this takes off and stays strong this time.

    That leaves MASK as the only weak series out of all of them. Since I was picking up the rest anyway, I'll continue to pick this one up. I hope it improves. But this series has so many errors, such as characters not recognizing other characters that look exactly the same as the last time they saw them. I originally thought that my difficulty in getting into the series was my unfamiliarity with the original version, but that didn's stop me from enjoying Rom or Micronauts.
