Oh my God! THEY KILLED KUP!!! YOU B****RDS!!!

OK I'm taking bets on how fast some other writer brings him back.

I'm thinking a year or less. How about it? ;)

What a load of bollocks.

The story, was at best, meh. The artwork ... ugh ... Transformers are not skinny and lanky.

All this served was to set up "Heart of Darkness". Nice try IDW, but you're quickly failing on your first company wide "crossover"

The story was indeed "meh" for me.

The art I will defend though. Though Roche may have been going a little overboard with the stylized look, I would still take this over movieformers any day. Not because I hate the movies, but because it doesn't belong in a reboot of G1. Perhaps Roche was going overboard to offset the current plague that Figueroa set in? :-?

The Transformers were shoehorned into this company crossover. It gives The Punisher/Archie crossover a run for the money in terms of plausibility.

I hope IDW eventually explains the re-appearance of a character that was last seen being endlessly tortured.

Oh, it wasn't totally horrible, I guess. I've read worse. Maybe "Heart of Darkness" will be okay...
This wasn't Roche's best work, and it was a little hard to follow at times. I still like how he draws faces - very full of character.
