I thought DW died?
Right at WW Age of Wrath no.4 and issue 31 of energon
DW did die, but the continuity they set up was the most cohesive and accurate to the toys, and over-all mythos. It had drawn on everything that had come before, taking the best parts and uniting them into a solid, cohesive whole. Even the Del-Rey book, the Ultimate Visual Guide to Transformers said that it was the definitive G1 continuity. Personally, I wish they were still publishing Transformers. Some of the stuff IDW did I find apalling; particularly what they did with Bumblebee. Other things I like, but I definately preferred DW?s take. I really hope that the whole Bankruptcy is taken care of soon, so that the stories DW left unfinished can be published by IDW. Until the Bankruptcy is dealt with, those stories remain in limbo. But that is neither here nor there and really has nothing to do with Primus.
Yeah, i wish DW was still at it too. IDW is O.K. but DW had the real stuff going on. More stories that had to do with the Transformers themselvs and their history. I just don't like all the humans being the big focal point of the stories at IDW. Stormbringer seems to be off to a good start, but the coloring is totally awful, it looks like they color these books with those crappy map color pencils we used to use in school. DW's coloring was definately state-of-the-art, and the word balloons with each character's individual colors was a kick ass idea, also all the scenes looking through the robot optics were awesome.
DW always seemed like a more advance version of the G1 cartoons, more indepth stories, way better art, sort of like the show grew up with the fans. You really couldn't ask for anything better. And man, i want them to finish the G1 story line, i need to see what is going to happen when Unicron rolls up.
