I went out and picked up Exiles today and... I've currently no time to start reading it anytime soon.
However, I will say that the cover is beautiful. It's a great look at the War for Cybertron Cybertron with the War for Cybertron Ark lauching into space away from it as the superimposed giant Decepticon insignia (no, not that one
) ominously looms in the background.
Though, the tagline, "One shall stand. One shall fall," really REALLY bothers me. I mean, I've had enough with that line already! It has become SO stale in its constant overuse. It may be iconic, but it's losing its significance as it keeps being used like some casual everyday phrase. Recall how often "More than meets the eye" was used in the first movie and how annoying that
got. This phrase here is going through the same syndrome.

It intrigued me enough to write that giant report I did on it here, but that's another story
It's best to just read it yourself and form your own thoughts and views on it.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
