Wow, the artwork is fantastic and I like the portrayal of Magnus character (at least in those five pages). Eagerly anticipating it...

Think the colouring's better than the art in places, but it looks pretty good.

Tyrest Accord? Interesting.

It's good to see UM as the usual dork although he is a dork with a big gun and can use it. Umm. Interesting.

Cover B angle is not for sensitive fems at all, is it? Wonder if we should compare favourably with Sixshot?

I guess it's the IDW equivalent of the “money shot”.

Ehhh…I don’t know. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to see (as Clogs put it) the ol’ dork in action again and it's also nice to see Swindle receive some attention and actually live up to his name sake, as a racketeer…..but I couldn’t help but cringe at some of the dialogue. It’s….well…kind of corny. That’s just me though; it is after all just a preview so there isn’t much content for me to go by. Oh well, Magnus looks great though and its always a pleasure to see him....cock shot and all.

He's ex-DW (the guy asking, not Robby Musso, as far as I know.)

bought the spotlight and really enjoyed the story. Ihave allways thought magnus should have been treated better in the cartoon as his look was so powerful. Having him as a law enforcment officer seems much more appropriate.

Yea, City Commander status seems more like a Sheriff to me in the job description.

Good to see Magnus found the time to ask some questions of the guy drawing him...

I'm not looking at the preview pages though as it'll be a week till I can afford to pick up the comic.

Did anyone else get a mental image of an intoxicated Denyer, at a party, lying on the couch, rambling on about how he would do the interview, while the rest of the partygoers gather around Musso as he answers their questions?*

Umm...

Yay! Gigantor! He rocks my socks! What? He's cool. He is!

Umm...

Fun interview. Though, thumbnails would have been nice

*Edit: Just to be safe, as you can never be too careful on the Interweb, the aforementioned mental image was the product of the interview’s format. All in jest... ^___^

Since when does Denyer need a party as an excuse to get intoxicated? Or a couch for that matter...

Incidentally, if anyone's got a working login for Seibertron, tell him good job on the interview... I can't reset my password until Ryan's done rewriting the reg code.

The issue: read it, liked it.

Oh I know, I just thought it made for strange reading due to the way it's laid out like that. I hope you don't think I was taking a dig at you. ( - :

Incidentally, seeing as I have no idea what you look like, I could only picture James Woods. Don't know why... o____0
