Well, that Galvatron looks like a weak fan-picture, but I'm interested enough in Galvys sidestory to read it.

Ongoing: #17 and Mike is still unleashed...

I just don't like the look of fem-Jazz. I dunno.. the cover just looks really feminine for some reason. Being stupid and nitpicky, oh well XD.

Yeah....I'm not feeling the art work on Galvy here either but I sure hope the story on him is good.

Meh to everything else though since it appears that Ongoing is still stuck on stupid human plots.....SMH

I'm picking up the ongoing but I may have to add Heart of Darkness as I want to see what Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning do in the Transformers universe.

Of course, I know that spins out of Infestation. If they do a paperback collecting that entire story, I may buy that as well.

Seriously? Does anyone remember when Transformers comics were drawn by artists that actually put time and effort into the artwork? I used to be in awe of the comics I picked up...now all I wanna do is redraw them myself. In recent tf history at least two artists I have been awed by traded their awesome artwork in for cartoony styles and that drives me nuts as well. The Jazz cover looks like a panel blown up to cover size, not at all something used to catch the eye and make you want to read the issue. IDW is slowly turning Transformers into a half-assed cashcow. Normally I don't rant like a jackass but when something I pay money for looks worse than what I can produce myself, I get pretty disappointed :BANG_HEAD:

The FIRST issue of 'International Incident' was great, with EJ Su (I wish they'd let him do all the issues) & a lot more bots...after that it kind of went downhill, but it wasn't terrible. I don't like new Spike though. All that said, I'm still interested.

I'm DEFINITELY interested in more Galvatron. IDW's take on him so far has been really awesome.

ongoing.

dear gods costa, it never ends !

looks like im still going to be getting IDWs minis from now on

hearts of darkness

im kinda piqued by the galvatron mini. the art is definetly different but i dont mind that in small doses and am i being too optimistic in thinking it actually sounds like it might harken back to the ol continuity? ok i know its set after infestation but the NAME has to reference the anti matrix.
