Hello Bludgeon...

Is there any way of finding out what the variants look like?
The IDW site is rubbish for this kind of thing, it's still on the Costa ongoing.

Would be nice to see the Variants, but I am loving the covers for MTMTE.

Of course there's nothing I don't love about those comics.

I really wish they would stop having Livio doing the interiors of comics. His art can be very pretty and cool, but it doesn't work for comics because the different colors/lighting ruin the flow from panel to panel. And it's really hard to tell which character is doing what to which character.

Having Hardhead, possibly the most generic Autobot on the planet, in the RiD issue 5 really didn't help.

But it's okay. As long as I have the heavenly crack cocaine that is MTMTE, I will be content.

The only one I care about is Regeneration. Hot Rod looks like a little kid on that cover. Maybe that's the point? And the other cover? Ratchet and Megatron yet again? Badass.
