    Siren design by Milne! Apparently based more on Transformers Prime and less on War for Cybertron.

    Good preview.

    Why do I get the feeling that
    Spoiler:
    If I had a problem with the preview it had to do with the waist of the bots, it's so freaking skinny, it's almost animated style. I was going to ask what was up with Rodimus until I saw the others.

    i dig the art, personally. Roche has been playing up the cartooniness a but but i'm okay with that, and Josh Burcham is delivering his usual top notch coloring.

    fun fact: Liars, A to D, in addition to being a reference to the song Liars, A to E, is also the name of one of James Roberts' previous stories from before his employment as an official Transformers writer.

    I can back Anti on this.

    Introduces a large cast with enough to make you care about most-to-all of them. Good dialog. Good ending.

    Ok I couldnt wait and pick this up tonight.

    It is sooo damn good, it's a very good time to be into Transformers fiction. Prowl is a dick and it makes me want to track down his classics toy. And I now want updates of Chromedome, Rewind, and I'm sure I'll want a new bulky Red Alert, and Brainstorm (he has a suitcase!) before this is all over.

    Brb, making Lost Light crew shelf.

    A tappet is the noise made by a worn cam follower, however the term is widely used to represent the cam follower itself. In mechanical engineering it is a projection which imparts a linear motion to some other component within an assembly.
    i had to google it. Surprised to see Noddy-Bot's playing a part in RID!

    Ok, so I've started to get into the whole new TF universe and have a major question for you all. I want to pick up these two new series but when I read the stories for the two I went, "Wait, what is happening here?" I really need to read more of the IDW stuff but no idea where to start. So hoping that you fine gentlebots here can help me. I bought Megatron Origin and enjoyed that ride, but now am stuck trying to figure out where to start. I went over to IDW's website and they're no help to tell me what order I should read these comics in. Is there a list somewhere or can you help a TF addict out? Also are the DW comics considered in the IDW stories (I have them, just haven't read them all in order yet)?

    The DW stories are all pretty not good to bad, with the sole exception being the Sunstorm arc

    The only thing you really need to fill in the background for the new series is the Death of Optimus Prime one-shot

    yeah, Death of Optimus Prime is all you need to understand the series at most

    if you really want to read the rest of IDW, http://tfwiki.net/wiki/IDW_Generation_1_continuity#Media
    approximate chronological order for their continuity. you're totally fine just reading DoOP, then RID and MTMTE.

    Thanks for the input on the DW series. I originally bought them all because I wanted new TF to read then hamster-buried them till I moved and discovered them again. Looks like I'll just hamster bury them again and move on.

    Cool, will pick up the Death of Optimus Prime book when I pick up the two new ones. Think I saw it on the digital front as well, which will work better for me.

    Thanks for the IDW link Antimatter, I've been interested in the new series since I have seen a comic here and there but I hate jumping in the middle of things.

    Thanks a million you two. Makes me feel better about getting back into the TF universe. The old Marvel comics can only be read so many times without wanting more.

    very welcome! I highly recommend anything you can find written by Nick Roche or James Roberts, especially Last Stand of the Wreckers. That story doesn't require much prior knowledge to read it at all, just that Megatron is believed to be dead by the Autobots during the time of the story.

    So, verdict on RiD? Good, bad, excellent?

    Likely gonna check it out when I go to get my comics tonight, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to check and maybe save myself a few bucks if it's terri-bad.

    It's good, much more serious in tone than MTMTE was. There's a few pages in the MOTW thread for you to see, the Decepticon issue seems to be the key plot to start the series off with.

    I just picked it up and read through it. Really interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing where the series goes. Art is fantastic, and those War for Cybertron designs are popping up.

    Honestly, if you already have the DW books, you may as well read them

    It's hard for me to look at DW these days after what Pat Lee did

    This led me to pick up Death of Optimus Prime and RiD if anyone's still on the fence. Never read any Transformers before, but I'm diggin it so far.

    did you see the More Than Meets The Eye preview, Zeromus? I like the tone of MTMTE, it's more of a fun action book.

    http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/idws-transformers-more-than-meets-the-eye-1-seven-page-preview/23634/ sadly, pixelated, but I still love the art and writing very much. I highly recommend this. Glad you're enjoying what you've already seen so far!

    Transformers More Than Meets the Eye is the first comic I have purchased over the internets. I am in the future now. Whoooosh!

    edit: I like it, the last page is a nice little hook. Looking forward to #2. The humor is done just right, and not forced feeling, would recommend.

    Overall, I liked it a lot. It's a great counterpart to MTMTE.

    The only thing I wish the Transformers books would do is get larger font for the dialogue. Usually if I go full screen to read comics on Comixology the copy isn't hard to read, but it's so small on these books (and this is the only IDW books I have that problem with), that I have to go guided view.

    i also wish they had the square speech bubbles

    it used to be, humans had normal dialog bubbles and transformers had square ones

    then Costa's ongoing came along...

    meh, oh well. the text size thing is an actual issue, maybe you should send an email?

    So I read Death of Optimus Prime and had to laugh at the reason they have the title. For some strange reason I was waiting for him to get knocked off while reading the comic.
    Spoiler:

    So I have a few questions before I move forward for you all. Putting them behind spoiler tags in case it is something that isn't known.

    IDW is an ENTIRELY new universe, the 80s cartoon and the marvel comics aren't canon
    it just takes the pre-existing characters, adds more depth to them, makes things more interesting, put new twists on them
