James Roberts Writing Ongoing 22 and 23!

Post by Best First » Sun Mar 27, 2011 1:51 pm

For those of you not mad on the current state of the ongoing (which as far as i can tell is just about everyone on this site, being the tasteful bods we are) i imagine this will come as a rather exciting piece of news.

Announced by Andy Schmidt here;

Great news but I don't see how he can revive the series and undo any Costa crap with only 2 issues.

I'm not jumping back on board with the main IDWverse until we hear about something more long-term, but awesome news nonetheless. Definitely a step in the right direction.

Writing at least six issues after this one and beyond. We will never get rid of this guy.

Hopefully they will do their usual thing of planning stuff x-months in advance and then just cram it into a 4 issue series in a vain attempt to placate those who like it before jumping off in a horribly dislocated fashion in another direction.

With a year gap to excuse any and all inconsistencies, natch.

Can't we get Costa's plotlines crammed into 4 issues of conclusion?

I'll give it to you in four lines.

Humans can't do **** against upgraded Transformers tech.

Important "dead" Transformers... aren't.

The Transformers aren't stuck on Earth anymore.

Shockwave ****ing did it.


IDW, you can just put my check in the mail when you get the chance.

It's going to be like this:

Prime: I can't trust you anymore, Spike. I'm going to Cybertron and taking Megatron with me to stop Galvatron.

Spike: Fine. I'm going to wipe out your pals.

Prowl: Spike killed scrapper!!

Galvatron: I am invincible!(Kills Megatron)

Prime: Waffle waffle (Kills Galvatron)

Idw: Reboot #3 incoming.

You know what I realized the other day?

Dreamwave Spike was actually quite a likeable, sympathetic character.

Yeah, I really had forgotten that. Even at his cheesiest, he could be a lot better than Idw's resident supersoldier. Actually loved the part in the first mini where he puts the matrix back into Prime.
