    my stoke was hight until i read:
    Writing the adaptation will be “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and “Star Trek” screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci,
    hollywood:: please, please, please stop using these idiots. they CAN NOT WRITE. Star Trek and both Transformer movies succeeded IN SPITE of the terrible scripts, not because of them... (shear spectacle in TFs case and great casting and direction in STs)

    ^Sorry Captain Snootypants, they succeeded because they were good. Anywho, I'm glad this project is back on track. I thought the closest we'd get is the SyFy Original , High Plains Invaders.

    And, if memory serves, the Transformers movies were about as enjoyable as a brain tumour.

    No offence to the creators, but I remember some controversy and some sort of trick the publisher used to get shops to order this book and overhype it. I remember hearing stores got extra comics, free I think, just to cause a buzz. I found a stack of copies marked 25 or 50 cents and picked one up. If ever it sounded like a publisher was using a gimmick to get Hollywood notice, this was it. Heh, I guess it worked, so I can't really complain. Well played.
