Transformers: Ironhide #1

Mike Costa (w) • Casey Coller (a) • Marcelo Matere, Coller
During the Great War on Cybertron, one of the Autobots' fallen heroes was Optimus Prime's best friend-IRONHIDE. What does that have to do with the fate of the planet today? Find out in this all-new miniseries by TRANSFORMERS writer Mike Costa and the phenomenal Casey Coller. You didn't really think his death was just some stunt with no ramifications, did you?
FC • 32 pages • $3.99

Transformers #7

Mike Costa (w) • Don Figueroa (a) • Figueroa, Andrew Wildman
As the dust settles down on Earth, we look to the Heavens to ask a burning question: Where have MEGATRON and the retreating DECEPTICONS been all this time? What have they been up to? The answer, of course, is: nothing good. Take a conspicuously infernal single-issue look into the heart of darkness with Costa and Figueroa.

Yep. And I still do.

Im suppose the nice thing about the chronological placing collection is it finally tells us when Cliffjumper happened. But where are they going to stick Mirage? Hopfully this might see some of the Premier Edition harcover books go up cheap on Ebayu as mad fans trade up, I can see myself getting both of those, the MD and LSOTW trades and then getting shot of my indervidual issues.

Nefarious still sounds crap. Seriously, someone needs to explain to IDW that no one buys a movie tie in comic to read about people who aren't in that Movie so going "WOOT DUNE RUNNER!" isn't going to make anyone care.

Dear IDW,

Nobody buys a movie tie-in comic to read about characters that aren't in the movie in question. As such, going "Look - Dune Runner!" won't make anyone care.

Love,
The World.

PS: We presume from his disappearance that Shane McCarthy has been disposed of. Clarification would be aces. Displaying his head on a pike or something similar is sufficient. Ta.


Done.

Oh, come on! You can't help but get excited about DUNE RUNNER. He's a little bit rash, but brave and won't run out on his comrades. It's a groundbreaking characterisation.

Why IDW can't do a "keep it simple" book on the film stuff, largely involving only the onscreen characters with others only appearing if the plot requires them is beyond me. But no, they inject it with all the fail of their G1 series - government agencies, artifacts, panels crammed with generic characters who have no bearing on the story.

What do they do with the Ultimate IDW Collection if a comic comes out set between, say, Origin and Infiltration? Ack, what a stupid question. They redo the entire series of collections again, don't they?
