Doesn't sound like much has been learnt since Hardwired, Exodus, etc.

Meh. Tried to read the first novel [the one where Pax becomes Optimus] and stopped at his blabbering in the chamber when Megatron killed that Senator.

This doesn't look any better. They're shoehorning every G1 bot and concept into the alignment universe [ie Prime universe] and thinking it fits.

And at this point I've grown extremely tired of prequel stories promising unheard of battles and epic struggles and the keeper of the matrix fighting the battle that will forever change the shape of the universe, or Megatron facing an unstoppable threat that changes everything [see the pattern?] only to...

Come to a conclusion where everything is restored to its status quo, miserable as that is [Prime with very few on Earth, Megatron missing, Decepticons wandering aimlessly] and no mention of said events anywhere.

It happened with Autocracy, it's happening with Monstrosity, movie prequel stories, and this.

Meh.

The worse thing with Monstrosity is that it looks like IDW will never feature the ever-so camp version of Trypticon that Furman wrote in War Withinark Ages. A pity, it was a genuine highlight of the 2 and a half series of War Within.

But you're spot on really. The problem with prequel stuff is that if it hasnt been thought out well enough before hand then everything must go back into the box at the end of it to maintain continuity.

Replace the ax mode with a katana mode and it's perfect!


Katanas can cut through tanks! No, really, I saw it on youtube once.

Odds are I'll buy the paperback, but I did feel the last one ended poorly. Just no reason for the space pirates who want to kill Cybertorains.

I've actually got one of these on my pile of upcoming books. 'Exodus', I think? Something like that. You guys are really helping me get excited about reading it.
