Writer: James Roberts
Artist: Alex Milne
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Make a list of every single DECEPTICON. Remove the warriors, the high-rankers, the loyal foot soldiers, the over-achievers, and anyone who’s ever made even a modest contribution to The Cause. You should now have five names left. Welcome back, guys.

GEORGE: Roberts and Milne’s Transformers: MTMTE series might be the finest Transformers comic ever published, no exaggeration. Roberts does a great job with hard luck characters and misfits, so this issue focused on some no-name Decepticons sounds great.

Artist: Jason Badower, Drew Johnson, Richard Ortiz,Cat Staggs

A woman with the powers of both fire and ice seeks revenge against a corrupt politician. And, Halloween finds the princess up against an undead adversary.

RODRIGO: The most well known version of Wonder Woman is this one. That might change when the movies start coming out, but for now it’s interesting to see different writers take a shot at 77.

Artist: Scott Koblish
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: • Professor X—Face to faces with the X-Sentinel! • Can the X-Men overcome Cassandra Nova’s “rehabilitations”?

ROB: This has been as amazingly over the top and ridiculous as expected and has been phenomenal because of it. With obvious nods to how terrible some of the 90’s was, this book is exactly what it should have been.
