    Looks like the story in RiD is switching to focus on Optimus for a little bit. (assuming that "shattered planet" isn't Cybertron) And YES, more of Shockwave! Also, Roche is doing art for at least one more issue of MtMtE!

    Wooo.

    Can't wait.


    -ZacWilliam, I'd buy these books weekly if I could. Sooo good.

    We're back to calling him Hot Rod again? ...I'm gonna go ahead and assume that was just a mix-up in prepping the solicits.

    *edit*

    ...am I reading that right? Livio's doing the internal art for RiD #6? ...is there an emoticon that expresses slight apprehension with a lip curl?

    Aw man I'm disappointed that optimus is back already. I felt like they had a good ending for him and he should really stay out of the comic for a while.

    Totally buying the MTMTE paper back but...that cover for #6. My heart aches and im shaking because it seems in now attached to Rung because I RP him ;_;

  6. Stryker055's Avatar Stryker055 says

    Though I was hoping we could keep Optimus away, having him show up as at least a secondary character (and as his new character, which should be awesome) is fine with me.

    Rung just can't catch a break.

    And I noticed Roche will do art for MTMTE #6. (...What happened to Rung?)

    But Orion Pax returns!? Hey, then why he left Cybertron at the first place?

    Hey, all it says is he's on a "shattered planet." Isn't necessarily Cybertron.
