IMHO Below:after Chaos & having bumblebee as the autobot faction leader. I lost all faith in IDW TF comics. I haven't bought a IDW TF comic since decenber 2011.I'm probably only going to buy the IDW TF Re-generation comics & that's it. I'll buy these ever 6 months via trade paper back volumes.I might be tempted to buy the TF Prime dinobots 4 issue comic from IDW. since I love the dinobots so much.
