But, a quick note here on the just announced today loss of the Transformers licence at IDW.
The company as a business I won't miss (though I doubt whoever takes over will be squeaky clean either).
The stories, the creators and the community though, have all has their ups and downs, but over two decades, collectively have been amazing.
In More Than Meets the Eye, they gave us what I think has been the best ever ongoing Transformers comic (not in every issue or idea being perfect, but the overall consistency has been amazing).
In the Wreckers trilogy they gave us what I think is the best TF comic full stop.
And right up to this current month, we've had so much good stuff. Barber (especially as an editor), Scott, Ruckley and company have been consistently working their asses off.
And the artists, from E.J. Su in the dawn times to Anna Malkova, we've had some stunning work on a hard to do franchise (as anyone who remembers the Great Door Argument between Roberts and Milne will attest).
I think many of them will carry over to the New for that reason.
But it's the people. Especially during the MTMTE run there was a real close sense of community.
IDW were not always perfect (indeed, today I'm talking about a very Not Perfect issue of AHM), but it sum is greater than its parts and it's a legacy I think we'll look back on fondly, even if whoever the new people are carry on doing good work.
