Loved issue #5. This book is great. I can't wait until the trade comes out so I can read the first two issues.

Just read the first ish of the new series, I found it good but not the greatest thing I've read. The art was fantastic for the Autobots but the humans could be worked on. I hope there's more Autobots and Decepticons hiding and stuff but the humans VS Autobots are interesting too. The spread on the first couple pages was really cool. Was there something I should've read before this, like an issue #0 or something?

I posted this on the main site/Kerouac's review, but I wanted to post it here too. I'm lazy and don't feel like typing something different Laughing

I loved Transformers #6. This series impresses me more and more each issue. I know almost nothing about the Transformers (aside from the Beast Wars and Beast Machines shows and the two live action movies), and that doesn’t matter. I hadn’t read a TF comic prior to issue #3 of this book, and I’ve had no problem enjoying this series. I think that’s a good indicator of it’s quality.

The art here is just amazing. When I look at the TF in the book it’s like my eyes are having orgasms.

Two questions. First, who is the friend of Optimus’ that died? And is there any word on when the first trade of this series is going to come out? I want to be able to read the first two issues.

Ironhide died.

No idea on the trade.

No zero issue that I remember. This IS based off of everything IDW has done before, so if you're wondering about the battles they refer to or stuff like that... you've got some catching up to do.

Thanks. I was thinking it was Ironhide (someone may have even mentioned it to me before).

Just posted this on the main site, but I thought it was worth saying here, too:

I asked Andy Schmidt - senior editor at IDW - when we'd see a trade of the first six issues. He said we could expect it around June.

http://panelsonpages.com/?s=IDW+Transformers

The first one covers the bulk of what IDW has done, the second is links to reviews of pretty much any of the books that I didn't catch in the main article.

That said, I highly recommend reading All Hail Megatron. It's out there, collected, in... three volumes, I think? It has the most impact on the current series and is some of the best storytelling. Still there ARE elements from the previous books that have been brought forward, but you SHOULD be able to get that information from Previously In...

Transformers #6

Positives:

-Don Figueroa listens to critics (maybe me haha) and actualizes some pretty decent backgrounds including an impressive sunset mountainside setting. His art on Transformers continues to be astounding. Even the human facial depections is improving. Kudos.

-Optimus Prime helps out but isn't "retconned" back into the fold. The saga continues despite his threshold over the Decepticons, particularly Swindle and the Constructicons.

-Bumblebee's rise towards leadership. He finally displays the puissant qualities needed to control these wacky alien robots. There's a moment towards the end of the book that Costa writes brilliantly: despite putting Magnus in his place, things will never come easy.

Negatives:

-Not many.

-The long-drawn out "inspiration" conversation between Spike and Optimus is a little drawn out, which admirably lengthens the comic, but doesn't come off nearly as emotionally-impactful as their previous communications.

-While Transformers has been a pleasure to read, there just seems to be something missing. Oh yeah, that's right: Megatron.

3.5/5 Rodimus Emotional Out Bursts - The creative team keeps the ball rolling.

Now that I've read most of the books that came out this past week (at least of the books I get) I have to say that Transformers #6 was the book of the week for me.

I'm becoming obsessed with this book. I can't stop thinking about it's awesomeness. I can't wait for the first trade and for issue #7.

When Figueroa does it? I kind of like it... it has a bit of the feel of the movie, while still being mostly true to the original series.

It looks like issue 7 was the answer to my gripes. This has to be my favorite issue of the series yet. Great art with the writing to back it up.
