I am looking forward to reading what they consider "cannon" for megatron. It also gives me something to pick and choose form when I write my own fics.

I'd use what I like the best and that which works well together.

This is gonna be so cool. I don't believe we've ever before been given an in-depth look at Cybertron before the War.

It has potential to be huge, and I hope it lives up to that potential, Megatron deserves a huge backstory, and a four part series is the right way to do it.

He also mentions other characters he would like to delve more into, every single one of them is a good choice, they do need fleshing out, even in the IDW Furmanverse.

I have huge expectations for this series. Sounds like the only good thing we'll get this year in comics (unless he writes another series). Holmes has a lot of great ideas for TF's. Hope he gets to write some more. Only idea I don't like: Decepticon civil war. I don't want to see all of Furman's silly sub-factions find their way into these. It would kill the huge potential immediately.

You know, i don't think i'll be having any problems waiting for devastation this summer. This sounds like it's going to be just as good as stormbringer was.

I don't get to read many comics, but if its possible to order them online, I might definately get these as they sound really good. I would also like to get the Starscream ones, if he does those too.
