I can't hold my excitement in for the next RID! I'm enjoyingthat one more than MTMTE. They're both good, but the latter just reminds me so much of Last Stand, while the formers seems more unique to me.

I haven't read RID or MTMTE, but I've been contemplating picking up the TPBs. Is Arcee a psychotic badass in RID? That's the vibe I'm getting...

She's less of a psycho in this series than in her spotlight, but she is badass. She has an interesting relationship with Prowl. If you're a fan of Furman's "-ations", I think you'll like it.

I definitely recommend picking up the TPBs.

Two people who would only read ReGen One picked up RID, and was hooked.
Then they discovered MTMTE, and now almost have second thoughts about RG1!
(That's not to say it will happen to you, or that they put other series to shame, just that it's really REALLY good writing, and very different from Furman's style.)

Your issue tends to be the artwork though, right?


As for Arcee, I share Nemesis Maximo's feelings: she's definitely a hard-hitting, chaotic neutral character, with development yet to come as June suggests, and I think she might turn out more important to the story than we currently see her.

I'm coming around to the art style. I still prefer ReGen's art by leaps and bounds, but the story is kinda not living up to it. Maybe my expectations were just too high. I have heard a lot of good things, especially about Rodimus in RID. I tried reading MTMTE when it 1st started, but Fort Max is 1 of my favorite characters from G1 and when they showed that he was weak and had Overlord torture him, I put the issue down. Kinda turned me off to it.

Hopefully ReGen will pick up, but I'm not expecting epicness anymore. Furman has clearly lost a couple of steps from the original series.

I am looking forward to the new series with the Dinobots, though. I liked Rage of the Dinobots.

Rodimus, for now, only really shows up in MTMTE, which is also where Fort Max shows up again after Last Stand of the Wreckers.

I'm not sure what you mean about showing weakness, as he was left pretty much alone on a planet overrun by Decepticons, and eventually fell to them. And that was at the hands of a Phase Sixer - Overlord. I really don't think that undermines him at all!
He is, however, definitely smaller than his G1 self.

For a fan of the old artwork, I sincerely recommend the two Annuals, as Guido Guidi does an amazing job of giving some background exploration of Cybertronian lore and mythos - in retro comics style, colour and all! ;)
