I've really liked the IDW stuff since it started and the recent stuff seems better and better, however I wish they wuld slow down on killing characters off so fast. For me more than the loss of the character its the loss of all the potential stories when they kill someone off so quickly.
However the same thing also happens in their GI Joe stories so I guess thats just how they want to play it.

Megatron vs Galvatron would be pretty cool.

Yeah and I kind of get the feeling they are building toward a Megatron Galvatron showdown... which would be awesome.

Hm... Interesting direction they have decided to go with this. Prime was more sympathetic of Megatron in the last few issues, but not hes become a cold shouldered piece of slag. Also I hope the art style is only for a few issues, I was really enjoying the art by Alex Milne.

Pffft, Downshift could have taken Cyclonus any day of the week.

The covers are nice, but I'm not sure the same holds for the artist's panel to panel story-telling… all very static and posed, which works on a cover but not in a story. :-(

The art... oh dear. I hope it proves to be less distressing in the actual issue than in this preview. e-e

Livio's art will be in issues 26, 28 and 30. So I guess we'll have to make it grow on us.

So much for Galvatron working with the Autobots. Too much carnage there for him to ever convince Prime that he has really good intentions with what he is doing.

Prime and Megatron combination to defeat Galavatron and his hordes... nah, just kiddin.

The art is still easier to take than that in the Galvatron mini. And the incentive sketch cover is beautiful. From what I looked at, at times it was hard to tell if characters were certain dudes. Interesting contrast in styles between Milne's ultra-detail work, to Livio's much different style. Not different bad, but different.

Somebody really should have said,
It's a pity you Autobots die so easily or I might have a sense of satisfaction.
;)

I'm intrigued where they're going with Megatron's response:
You and I both know that Cybertron is more than just a metal planet. If it fell into the wrong hands…

Warworld? Primus?

So... how much from this Ongoing remains? The first five pages were a 90 degree downhill from the previous two issue, and I doubt it was Roberts' fault.

A Megatron Optimus team up may not be out of the question. I think what may happen is Megatron will take on the D-Void and Optimus will go up against Galvatron. The Matrix V The HOD.

Could be very good. Livios art is definately better then Farinas but the star of the show may be Cahills artwork in LSOE.

Since this appears to be the TF G-1 on-going IDW #24 comic issue thread.

Can someomne PLEASE provide a review with tons of spoilers about issue #24 that they read in the comic issue #24.

My nearest comic book store is 26 miles away one way & 52 miles away eound trip. with the high prices of gasoline,I can only afford to go to this comic book store once a month. I basically ask the comic book store to hold all my comic on my list until I get to the comic store in a month time period each visit.

Taking off from the preview, Optimus Prime and crew work to find Xaaron, but are having a hard time contacting him. Prime and crew go planetside, and Galvatron makes them an offer they can't refuse (either your with us, or we destroy you). Sunstreaker is still shunned by his fellow bots, Ironhide and Prime speak briefly of the past, and Prime talks about how Ironhide looks younger.

So back to the action, Galvatron attacks the Autobots who didn't want to join, and simply wanted to part ways peacably. Ironhide attacks Galvatron, and the Sweeps attack the rest of the bots. Galvatron and his sweeps pull back, and Prime and crew retreat to their landing spot where they are quickly targeted by Kimia (battle station Cyclonus and Scourge zombies stole from Autobots). Kimia transforms into 'alt-mode' even though it is not technically an alt mode.


It's pretty bland. The art is reminiscent of HOD, but does not suffer all the weaknesses of that art. It does come across as weak, at times, in my opinion, but as we've seen. Could be worse.

There is no amount of introspection here, as in 22, and 23. In fact, the dialogue is pretty sparse, and where there is some, I didn't find it to be very profound or interesting. It worked.

#24 not as good as #22 and #23.

SPOILERS!


It feels like more set up. There is an action scene and kind of the conversation we have wanted with Prime and Ironhide, but then there is also a scene involving Sunstreaker which didn't make much sense to me after certain panels in issue 21.

I could just be tired of feeling like nothing big has happened yet after HoD and all the issues of ongoing I have read leading into chaos.

Or I could just be missing the dense, multifaceted world I felt like I was visiting in issues 22 and 23.

Finally, that thing at the end with Kimia was...ugh...

There were other ways that base could have been used to blow a hole to cybertron's core in issue 26 than that.

And as for Galvatron, all hope that he won't be portrayed as nuts and will come full circle to the character Simon wrote is gone now. And it looks like all the "chaos" really is going to occur just because Galvatron won't elaborate with the autobots on the situation with Dvoid. The part when he acts as if the autobots can't be allowed to leave alive when they just want to walk away is SOOOOOOOOoo far off from the way this guy was written in HoD that it will probably raise more than a few BS flags.

And where exactly is that massive, era spanning race of an army he raised in HoD? How much room is left in the next 3 issues for all of this stuff to go down?

At least it won't be crammed into 4 spotlights like Simon's final arch was.
