I have to disagree... I HATE mixing these styles together in the same comic. Love them separately though.

Don't you think they worked well with the different stories being told? :-?

I just think each transition is jarring.

To each their own, I suppose. I thought it worked quite well! :D

I find it interesting how soundwaves minions represent different versions of the characters.

-Ravage is based on Energon Battle Ravage, just a bit more rounded out and correctly deco'd.
-Laserbeak is based on WFC/FOC laserbeak
-Buzzsaw is based on G1
-Frenzy and Rumble are based on Classics/Universe/Generations

Im not 100% sure about ratbat, but he appears to be based on the new MP one. Which would also count as g1 I suppose. XD

Maybe Hasbro will finally give us Frenzy and Rumbla as the deluxe tankformers in the new Generations line at some point.

Some of you may still be waiting for September's issue of Robots in Disguise (21), and wondering what has happened to it. Mariel Romero, digital assistant at IDW, has the answer! Both 21 and 22 will be release in October, one on the 9th and one on the 30th - so make sure you pick your copy up next week. In the meantime, check out the preview and review.

OK BREATHE! #Transformers comics digital release dates: #MTMTE 22: 10/16, #RID 21: 10/9, RID 22 = 10/30 :D You're welcome.
