Red Dave>>> Thats basically why i was pretty ok with him taking a long time to establish plot points and such. He was building a universe from the ground up.
I'm sure IDW was envisioning the new TF comics to be like Marvel's ULTIMATE comics. With multiple series running parallel to each other and crossing over once in a while. (kinda like what they are doing now with RID and MTMTE) Rather than like previous TF comics which were pretty much a single story or multiple stories set in different times.

But somewhere during Devastation and Spotlight Optimus Prime, the editors decided to bring everything into a single storyline again instead of having 2 parallel stories.

The issue about the spotlights is that earlier spotlights always focused ON THE CHARACTER with the Dead universe arc as solely a backdrop. Slowly and slowly, it devolved into just the DEad universe arc told from a first person POV.

Personally i was hoping for 3 lines of TF comics.
- The Earth based "Machination arc" to be covered in -tion series
- THe spotlights
- THe Dead Universe arc covered in a "storm" series (Building on stormbringer)

I just wished we'd never had the Dead Universe at all. Terrible concept. And it was a re-heat of Necrowar.

Non-TF mini-series by Furman for DW that managed to get cancelled mid-run without anyone really caring. Even Ver Furm didn't seem that bothered.

Top link in Google is a TF store going "Hey, by fan-favourite Furman!", blithely unaware that if it doesn't have a Hasbro copyright notice in it, TF fans don't give a **** who it's by.

I've got that somewhere.... IIRC Dreamwave promoted it hard on the "Digital" colouring. Which mainly made it impossible to tell one character from another.

I thought it was digital paint artwork because it's Adi Granov who was the same artist that did the art work on the Warren Ellis-written Iron Man: Extremis storyline.

Yea, well i was expecting the Dead universe stuff to be something "smarter". It certainly seemed to be heading in that direction for a while.
