The icon behind this is celebrated as an omen for change—MEGATRON's day has come! A response must be heard, seen, felt. SENTINEL PRIME's narrowed options make him lunge for his bluntest tactic: a thunderous head-on attack aimed at squashing resistance overnight. By Eric Holmes and the artist of the TRANSFORMERS: MOVIE ADAPTATION, Alex Milne.

I can't wait to read all of Megatron's origin! It always seems that things always wind up dealing with Optimus and crew, it's nice to see something different!

Ascention sounds like it's gonna be even weirder than I thought. And those BW books are gonna be PRICEY! I wonder if they'll be released on trade.

I hope Furman doesn't have the new BW story involve a heavy dose of mysticism. :?

Omega Supreme. I'm interested to see how they adapt his character. Although I liked how Brad Mick kept his speech close to the show. He did that for all the characters, kept their inflections and quirks. For all his merit, Furman's Transformers all tend to talk exactly alike.

First off, this meg's origin just keeps getting better and better. Can't wait to get it. And although i am sad that it will be delayed, for every disapointment i've had with idw they give me four things to be happy about.

Does anyone know if there will be content (letters, articles, etc.) outside of the three selected stories in the magazine?

"Although I liked how Brad Mick kept his speech close to the show. He did that for all the characters, kept their inflections and quirks. For all his merit, Furman's Transformers all tend to talk exactly alike."

Finally someone else who sees it. Furman is a great writer but Mick captured each character and that's what I miss about Dreamwave.

The Magazine reprints the 3 comic book G1 continuities? What happens when they run out? Would love to see new material that follows on from the Marvel and Dreamwave books.
