Well there's arcee and Galvatron before the first war. I forgot she mentioned in the last issue she had a brother and he died because she stood there and watch THEM kill him. It's a really cool take on both of them.

The brothers are Galvatron and Arcee and the big dude with the firey arms is Megatronus of the thirteen. Even I don't like Livio but I can tell and it's not that bad in this issue.

Yeah, Livio's come a long way since Chaos. Not an artstyle I enjoy, but it's at the point where it's fine now imo.

"Septimus Prime..." Goodness, they really need some better Prime names, even if he is a fake prime.

But this looks to be really cool. Arcee and Galvatron. Huh.

He has, and I don't enjoy it as much either, but he does do great work, I just think most of his great work is in other franchises, but I appreciate that he has a style and look all his own, he embraces it, and does well with it.

What makes you say it's Arcee, though I guess I could be thanks to Mark's spotlight story this version was a male bit at some point so Arcee in the comics is a Trans-Transformer.

The styli itself is fine but he still needs to spend time keeping characters on some semblance of model and recognizability. You shouldn't need to guess or TFWiki look up who you are looking at in an issue. Especially when he tries to add cameos.

The one Galvatron has an axe, the other carries two swords. One of the alternate covers shows Galvatron and Arcee, and as mentioned before by RH, Arcee has said recently that she has a brother killed before her eyes.

The issue will provide more 'solid' evidence, as well...

It's blantly obvious at this point that Arcee is the brother of Galvatron unless they pull off another Tarn "what a twist" (Goddamn it Roberts)


Is Livio like 10 dollars to hire or something? (Wouldn't be surprised with how cheap IDW is and their treatment of Alex Milne)

He can be great at making covers but when he has to make a bunch of pages in the actual book his flaws show big time.

A comic book could have the greatest plot in man kind and I still wouldn't read it if it had horrendous art.

Except thats wasn't really much of a twist when you go back a realize there were about half a dozen clues of Tarn's identity. Some people even figured it out about 2 years before Dying of The Light but were quickly told "NO ITS ROLLER BECAUSE COOL!!"

Because one is wielding swords the other an axe. Arcee has also been drawn in very similar poses with her swords and throughout the second season of RID/TF there's an obvious kinship between the two. Arcee threatened to kill Galvatron many times but never really went through with it and by the end of TF and through out Optimus Prime she has shown some deep emotions for the death of Galvatron.

She knew Galvatron was her brother but the question is why didn't Galvatron? At first I thought John is retconning this but like I said there's hints of something between the two for the passed three years and it's John. He makes long term plans

You have to admit, the evidence for it being Arcee is a lot stronger than for it not being her. I didn't even notice the sword-wielding until you mentioned it.

In any case, this issue will be great setup for Power of the Primes. I'm looking forward to seeing Onyx Prime and more of Liege Maximo.

What do you mean about their treatment of Milne?

It probably means somebody thinks Alex Milne was "let go" from drawing main transformers books and doesn't bother ever listening to the artist's they love. There's never been a full blown reason why Milne isn't on lost light. He was suppose to trade off story arcs with Jack but it never happened. When news came out about the change in artists Milne made the remark he didn't even know but was fine and blamed himself for him being unreliable to make deadlines. He openly admits he couldn't keep up on a monthly book.
