It's China versus North Korea versus the USA. Politics and Transformers are all incorporated into IDW's latest release Transformers: Ongoing #12. The comic is released this week, and thanks to Comixology we've got a five-page preview. Check out the covers, description and a snippet below!

Transformers #12
Mike Costa (w) • Guido Guidi (a) • Don Figueroa, Guidi (c)
“International Incident,” part 4: The action-packed conclusion to the biggest Transformers story of the year! Will Optimus and the Autobots survive? Well... probably. But an internal betrayal at Skywatch changes a victory into a potential loss and puts a new leader directly in the line of fire.

Poor Prime is about to be framed by Onslaught, I like that concept. I need to get the TPBs and get caught back up

Infestation is written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. Their Marvel cosmic stuff is great, so I'll give that crossover a chance. As for the ongoing... it's been crap so far. A huge letdown. Simplistic dialogue and terribly drawn-out storylines, and only E.J.'s and Guido's issues have been enjoyable art-wise.
They are promising great things for next year (the return of the Decepticons), but I'm all wait and see on that one. Mike Costa has a LOT of improving to do, and the storylines and dialogue are going to have to get a whole lot better. If the great return of the Decepticons (which has taken far too long already) is turning into another letdown, I'll drop the comic.

And seriously, "Razzafrazzen"...? Mike, please just stop writing this stuff and stick to GI Joe.

this is what IDW have spent a YEAR leading up to

this ?

sweet jesus im not even sure if i want to get this in trade.

ive given up on costa at this stage. ive NO interest in anything he's setting up and despite claims from others about what a great writer he is im seeing NO evidence of it. this is the WORST portrayal of prime ive seen in decades !

TBH im this close to not getting any book he's on now out of general principles.

i cant believe how IDW have fucked this up so much.

ive read fanfic better than this !

Indeed. Just check out some of those mosaics out there. Way less decompressed (obviously) and much better dialogue most of the time. Costa could learn from them.

And Onslaught's supposed to be a "tactical genius". Probably the biggest dumbass move he's ever done. Unless someone knows of another time he's pulled off stupider stunts? :lol:

I havent read it yet but IDW needs to get out of this Transformers/Government team-up stuff fast.

Truthfully, there is no reason for any Transformer to be on Earth right now.

Well, technically, there is. Earth is an energy-rich planet, and one of the Decepticons' main goals is to suck Earth of it's energy. The same concept is the same in Generation 1. :-B

For all of those "Ongoing" readers who despise the fact that the Transformers are still on Earth, just think -- the "Rodimus in Space" saga is due to start with the next issue. As a result, the next few issues should at least be space-centric with very little connection to Earth.


- Bob


P.S.

I do agree with Mindmaster concerning the continued residence of Transformers on Earth. Beyond the fact that Earth is energy-rich, especially with Shockwave's energy-seeding efforts, Earth has been an indelible part of the Transformers dating all the way back to the early '80s. While I would love to see more stories taking place in other solar systems and galaxies, we have to recognize that Transformers and the Earth are irrevocably linked and such a connection cannot be severed without drastically impacting the whole TF franchise.

Yeah. Too bad it stars Hot Rod, last seen getting assassinated by Mike Costa's "writing".

Okay, I give in. What happens on the last page?

I haven't got the issue yet. I'm in much less of a hurry these days to get the comics...

Bumblebee gets assasinated by a human wielding Megatron.
May I point out the page which redeems all Costa's writing has only 'AAIIEE!', 'OH MY GOD...', 'NICE SHOT' and 'NO!' as dialogue. :lol:
