Just when we thought the yellow fever was passing, we find out the new IDW Transformers reboot comic is a story about Bumblebee's life on Cybetron before the war. What begins as a "A NEW ERA DAWNS!" is feeling like more of the same kind of thing we are seeing in the Cyberverse series.
What was truly great news of a full reboot is now a bit less interesting, to me, when I know its more of the Bumblebee branding excises we have had to endure. I don't want to call it before I read it, but this is obviously not going to be the reboot I had hoped for. Read the full summary below for more details.

A NEW ERA DAWNS! In the infinite universe, there exists a planet like no other: Cybertron! Home to the Transformers, and a thriving hub for inter-stellar commerce, it is a world brimming with organic and constructed diversity. Immense structures line its landscape. Mechanical giants roam across its surface. Starship-sized titans orbit its skies, keeping a constant protective watch above and below. Ancient Transformers merge into its very fabric. Small, mysterious creatures skulk in its shadows. It is a truly amazing realm: long untouched by war, and exuberantly reaching for the stars. This is the Cybertron that Optimus Prime and Megatron vie for in this bold new origin—a world of seemingly endless peace!
All that changes when Bumblebee and Windblade take a newly-forged Cybertronian on his first voyage through this world of wonders—they are confronted by the hard reality of the first murder to have occurred on Cybertron in living memory!
