Galvatron?

Eh, at least the authors remembered that bit of continuity form IDW's earlier work...

'New writing mainstays', huh? I wonder if they're "Team Galvatron" now, since he shows up in Infestation and IDW has said he's going to be heavily featured in the future. Abnett's done some TF work before (three or four UK stories, of which 'Dry Run' is probably the best-known).

Ahhh, Dan Abnett - Britain's answer to Jeph Loeb, proof that if you churn out enough comics for 20-odd years sooner or later someone's going to like some of them.
