A proper, honest-to-god pre-war Transformers story?

I have only been waiting for that forever. Even if its watercooler politics among giant robots it's something I'm really interested in.

Does that mean that the story will feature Elita-1 will being converted into a bad guy, then backstab everyone, gain a large creepy fanbase in the process, slaughter tons on innocents and pretty much become impervious to any comeuppance as she becomes an invincible mary sue?

hug you, IDW.

On the bright side, with Costa out by the end and writing duties being taken over by Barber and Roberts... I might have to start buying TF comics on a monthly basis again.

Because nobody else wants to write about the other guy's totally awesome fancharacter made official u guyze. Just like with Infestation, Drift's inclusion reeks of "editorial mandate", because Ryall and Tipton are gay for Drift.

And yet, with a proper writer at the helm, Drift could actually be *gasp* an interesting character.

Yes, I know, it sounds absurd, but there you are.

It'd take some epic distancing from his crappy-ass backstory, and the loss of that bigass superspecialawesomesauce sword.
And maybe he could have a gun, too.

A series set before Megatron Origin's? Wow, what did I just post here last week? icon-hotrod.gif

Very excited for that.

Buck up, maybe he'll use his spark eating sword, sacrificing himself, and it'll be for absolutely nothing.


Actually that sounds like a really cool death, too cool for Drift.

What's all this "125" jank? Are they thinking about renumbering the series by counting up all their previous TF stuff? Would that even make 120ish comics?

I swear I have been consistently disappointed by IDW since they took Furman off G1. Sales rose for a bit w/ more G1 art (hardly Furman's fault), then dropped HARD when 7 issues went by without any story progression whatsoever. Literally the autobots and decepticons were in the same place and status in issue 8 that they were in issue 1! Then we moved on to "Ongoing" and it's continuing efforts to make Michael Bay's Transformers seem worthy of praise because it remembers what bumblebee transforms into from scene to scene when IDW can't.

I'd rather they actually did something to make Drift valuable rather than having him hang around in the background.

I don't care about the collected butthurt regarding the pointless hoohaah of the characters debut. Just have him do something already.

I remember counting it before, and yeah, it'll reach 125. There were a few issues on the margin that I can't remember if they were included or excluded (New Avengers crossover, Infestation, etc) but there's a way to get it up to 125.

The ideas certainly look interesting (though the Death of Optimus Prime is nothing new since, oh, 1986) but IDW has a recent track record of having ideas sound good in preview then underwhelming when hitting the page. The current storyline actually looks like there's some love and care into it, but "Revenge of the Decepticons" was such a go-nowhere nothing storyline that there really isn't any sense of buildup for it. And you can see that just by seeing how little comments there are in the comics discussions now...

They've left out both TF: Infestation and the New Avengers crossover, by my reckoning:

Infiltration #0-6 = 0-6
Stormbringer #1-4 = 7-10
Escalation #1-6 = 11-16
Megatron Origin #1-4 = 17-20
Devastation #1-6 = 21-26
Max Dinobots #1-5 = 27-31
AHM #1-16 = 32-47
Ongoing #1-31 = 38-78
Bumblebee #1-4 = 79-82
LS/Wreckers #1-5 = 83-87
Ironhide #1-4 = 88-91
Drift #1-4 = 92-95
Heart of Darkness #1-4 = 96-99
Spotlights ? 25 = 100-124
Transformers #125- = 125+

[Disclaimer: The "totalled" numbers aren't meant to say Spotlight: Shockwave is #100 and other such "out of sequence" stuff, it's just for ease of explanation!]

With #20 we are currently at 114 issues, well 113 since HoD didn't ship this week, so yeah the 10 issues of Chaos would give us 124.
