Wow, so three straight months and nothing but the ongoing for G1, and with no mention of anything as of yet, Im guessing only ongoing #16 for february as well

I care nothing for the movie stuff, but I used to buy it just to support, but with 3 movie books out and only 1 of G1, doesnt work for me, sorry

especially with the fact that these movie comics are not even cannon, After that defience/alliance crap, the reign of starscream, and whatever else that means jack in terms of the movies

As for the ongoing and G1, Im waiting arc 3 out for trade, because seriously if the ongoing and the 6 issues per arc are only going to focus on one particular event at a time, and with no other G1 books out, I'm definately waiting on the trade, because these arcs read terribly by the month and in full 6 issue format so far isnt much better

How can character X from the third film be called a "Fan Favourite" when he hasn't appeared in anything yet? Yes, his G1 namesake is, but so is the original Skids and, as much as he doesn't bother me, the ROTF version hardly wound up as one...

Still, good to see we're close enough to the launch of the third film for the tie ins based around minor lines of dialogue that probably won't make it into the finished film comics to start.


good job...
