At least Prime has a new arm.

wonder what the deal is with Skywarp? He and Blackrock doing some stuff potentially? Hmm :MAXIMAL:

I'll laugh if we get a Titan Wars Skywarp as the first seeker and his Titan Master is Blackrock and this is the first glimpses of that.

Well Livios art is getting better. Marginally.

I just want him to stop being "Event" book guy. You can tell when he rushes and when he's got the time to draw

Yeah, Livio's art always leaves me conflicted. When he really gets into something its amazing what he can do, but the quality has a tendency to vary spectacularly from panel to panel. Like that first shot of optimus on page three here is beautiful, but then immediately after you have a tilted and lopsided starscream. If anyone's in doubt about his abilities, check out the man's deviantart page, but geez I wish his talents would be utilized better on transformers comics.

Livio is IDW equivalent to Marvel UK's Jeff Anderson.

Already at the end of #50 we see the under-human Cybertronian side - was that not something you've come across?

I dunno. Maybe. It's been a while so I might have just forgotten about it or didn't think it would alter his appearance. It's possible that the art shift didn't help either cause I really didn't know who was what until I thought about it. I seriously thought he was some robo-butler at first glance.

Real reason, Livio can't draw people.

It's amazing that we've seen all these locations in previous issues where they are all brightly lit and colorful...then Livio comes in and turns them all into dark, murky nothing areas and treats every place like everyone is saving on their electric bills.

Yeah, I've never been a fan of his art. It just looks messy. I catch myself just reading the words and not even paying attention to the pictures.
But he's been around for a while, so I'll just have to get over it.
Speaking of artists, what ever happened to Stone? Do we know?

Is that good or bad? (Never read Marvel UK, don't know who Anderson is.)

That's too bad, I'll miss her taking my giant murder-bots and making them pretty.

Pure rubish. Given the past history of both Optimus and Starscream, for the council to take Screamers side over Prime is ridiculous. Like, takes me out if the story ridiculous.

I'd agree but this is not the full comic or the entire scene. It's just the first couple pages.

I do however can't not think that Starscream was one of the first decepticons to attempt an invasion on earth back in the -action series and participate in the all out assault on earth AND return to earth in the ongoing with the rest of the Decepticons. That can't be ignored.

Does the council know that, though? He brokered a fair few of those deals himself, where Windblade didn't, and I'm certain he didn't let slip that he had expansionist tactics in the past.
