    I asked this in another thread, but this one seems to be the right place to ask it.

    How did everyone like the "Orion Pax & his crew" story from RID #6? I really liked it.

    Does anyone think this story and characters should be its own ongoing monthly series?

    I believe it does. RID #6 with Orion Pax, Hardhead, Wheelie, & Garnak in hot pursuit of some very evil Decepticons was very oldschool for me. It was just Autobots vs. Decepticons. It was like old times. I really enjoyed the story, and I look forward to seeing more of it.

    Quick question. After dropping all DC universe titles with the reboot last year, I've finally decided to do the same with Marvel. The whole 'nothing ever really changes' thing kind of gets to me and for the past few years it's been more of a slog keeping up with titles, rather than being something I enjoy. Not sure why it's taken me this long, nostalgia trumps common sense it seems. Anyway, I've been hearing good things about the new Transformers titles and was thinking about giving them a shot. My question is, am I just trading one franchise for another? Is there scope for real change and progressive storytelling since they're licensed characters? Or is it another 'back to the status quo' every couple of years type of deal?

    It was pretty good. Barber wrote Orion\Optimus perfectly. I don't think it warrants its' own monthly but it was a nice break from five issues of political wrangling.

    IDW did a soft reboot a few years ago but that more for changing creative direction rather than anything else. The monthlies now are quite easy for a new reader to get up to speed with but every story since IDW's won the license is still in continuity. The Autobot-Decepticon war is now over in the current stories and the writers aren't too wary about changing things up.

    I can honestly say that the current Transformers series are not just the best we've ever had for Transformers, but possibly some of the best comics I have ever read (and I've read a few) - especially More Than Meets The Eye. Pick them up and try them out - you won't be disappointed!

    Robots in Disguise #6 was another brilliant read. It is a jumping on point for new readers, but it is steeped in IDW Transformers history. Perhaps this Orion Pax story arc could be run as a back up story in both titles.

    Also, am I the only one thinking they have missed an issue of Transformers: More then Meets the Eye, given that RID #6 came out first, breaking what has been a steady pulication pattern for the past 5 months.

    You're in safe territory with TF. There has been an occasional "soft" reboot (which isn't really a reboot, more a "jumping one year forward"-type of deal), but the last seven years of comics have definitely been a progressing storyline, with characters definitely changing and developing along the way. There's a lot of great stuff in there but at the same time, you'd be safe to just catch up on the new ongoing titles - "More Than Meets The Eye" (5 issues to date) and "Robots In Disguise" (6 issues to date). They really are that good.

    For that matter, more dangling plotlines from the past years are currently being addressed than ever before!

    Just been and picked up RiD #1-6 and a selection of indies to sample. First time I've actually been excited to go to the comic book store for a long time. Wish I'd cut the 'big 2' cord sooner. I assume tfwiki.net is the place to go for answers to all the questions I'm sure to have after reading? Any classic stories I might not want to spoil by reading the wiki?

    The stories I'd count as classics thus far are Last Stand Of The Wreckers by Roberts and Roche - up there in my top 10 comics of all time -, Stormbringer by Furman and Figuerora and Transformers #22 and #23 by Roberts and Milne. The last two delve into the pre-war history of Megatron and Optimus Prime and got rave reviews everywhere.

    It;s also worth getting Spotlight Shockwave and Spotlight Kup.
