I had a very hard time reading that. Not because I am mentally deficient, but because this final product is so poorly completed.

Yay, Nemesis Prime, please destroy this title so I do not have to feel insulted when I am looking at it even though, I will feel compelled to buy it.


4 covers? WOW, this really needed four different covers? I thought the comics industry was beyond that. Livio's and Casey's covers are nice.

Ulises, keep working to improve.

For the love of god someone put Ulises Farinas in a small box and throw it in an active volcano. That artwork is terrible. The bots look like they got crossed with My Little Pony. Galvatron seriously needs to go on a diet too. I might like the story if I didn't get distracted by the god awful art.

I'm really not enjoying this series at the moment. I've read the last three and will pick up this issue just to see where they go with it and how it ends.

Also, apologies if Ive missed something along the way here, but where is Infestation meant to take place? Is it within this continuity or not? Because I cant see it fitting in with this title at all.

INFESTATION is meant to happen after these events.

IDW, if the artist can't draw robots, then don't make him illustrate a book that focuses heavily on robots. Because that just lets him look like a bad artist which makes him feel bad and your customers, it also lowers the quality of your product.

Because she likes big buts and she cannot lie!

starwarrior1227 says: i have to disagree. the artist can draw robots very well, it's how he designs the characters that bug me(like making galvatron fat). all the faces of the robots should be changed(cuz they are all ugly) and should stay the new way. i keep finding slots of comic where galvatron's face continues to change in length. he either has a short round face or a long flat face.

Somebody break the artists arm. It might do good for his art.

I might be in the bayformers mood too much, but am I the only one imagining Arcee making as Wheelie did in RotF?

more importantly why is scrouge looking to the left side(his right) when all the horror is in front of him? my guess is he saw RC doing something off to the side...someting naughty. ;)

The second cover looked fantastic. Get him to draw this comic. The actual artwork used looks like ass.

Who is that green TF? Is he Tap Out or G1 Wasp?

I like the 3rd cover. Reminds me of issue 79 of the UK comic from 25 years ago.

The art is so bad I can't even will myself to read the story. How did anyone authorise this?

Just a random reborn bot, as far as I know. Call it whom you would like.

The story is great. Really whets the whistle for the upcoming Chaos.

However, the art was atrocious. I was hoping that the art would improve as the series went along but it wasn't the case. The last page with Galvatron's expression is awful.

It's a real mixed bag. Really disappointing considering it's Abnett & Lanning.

The art in this book was terrible. It's like Dan Reed from the old UK book had returned. What was IDW thinking?
