Yay, Nick Roche!

Prowl gets some monologue here, I see... Is his body sort of a transition between IDW/Su and Universe-classics?

More tie-ins! Kup, Pretenders, Revelations... the, um, cigar... Nice to see someone is actually trying to gel Revelations and AHM. is 'Springerism' a play on 'Furmanism'?

I like it.

It's a shame I haven't seen a single Transformers comic over here since the second issue of Energon, I think five years.

You'd like anything as long as someone decks Prowl in it.

Someone's been mining the Syndicate Wars weapons catalogue for ideas... :)

No, but really, this is great.

Ooh, Brainstorm! Perceptor's upgrade (and change in behavior from scientist to trigger-happy macho gun) would hopefully be explained... Nice to see Roche back on the art.

Looks good. In fact, scripting and plot seem cohesive.

Either they got a new writer, or somebody slapped McCarthy upside the head and unjammed his neural relays.

Nick Roche is the writer of the Kup story.

Give Roche an ongoing, writer and artist. Release the issues at whatever speed he can handle. Tell him to use any characters from any era in anyway he wants.

Everyone wins.

I know Roche wrote the Kup story. But did he write this issue of AHM, or did McCarthy start writing better, as from what I can tell, McCarthy's been the sole writer on AHM.

Nick wrote the first 11 pages of AHM 15. Denton Tipton write the last 11. The first 11 pages are about Kup - the second half is about Perceptor.

And I got to colour Nick's story. Which pleases me.. :)

McCarthy wrote the first twelve issues. The "Coda" stories that comprise 13-16 are split amongst a variety of writers.

I've got a list of IDW people who should work themselves to death first.

The Kup story is the main reason I'm keeping up with the title, I've got more man love for Roche than is healthy.

I mean dying through writing and drawing many TF comics, rather than dying through being held down and shot in the face.

FAIK Roche is the writer and artist on the Upcoming Wreckers mini, starting in Jan. Check the other thread about it. It's not an ongoing but if it goes well maybe he'll be given more minis to write.
