Ok, a few people know that im a Dreamwave fan, more so than IDW. Yes the DW art sometimes was questionable, but there was no doubt that the stories were some of the best going. DW always had something to suprise us, or a money shot in every other issue or so, but from what ive read of IDW i havent seen anything like it yet.
So as we know DW went out the door and IDW came in, and everyone got excited, yet i was cynical. Was it because i wanted the DW run to finish.....was i annnoyed to the extent that i wasnt willing to give IDW a chance? Im not sure. Ive read AHM, MO, Max Dinos, and the story with Thunderwing ( ive forgotten its name ) and a few of the 'Ation' series and spotlights.....and i have to say they never....ever got me as excited as DW did......i never made an actual effort to race to my local comic shop to pick up my newest issue along with ALL the variants, giddy as a geek should be, anticipating what could be in store for me.
I guess what im really getting at here is, why should i start from scratch on IDW. The guys who review the IDW comics have said its picking up and getting really good, and from some blurbs ive seen in the latest issues in Forbidden planet have said that the War is coming to and end, an event '4 million years in the making'. Interesting sales pitch....got my attention. However, do i really want to do this....do i want to be dissapointed again?
So come on guys, give me a hand, talk me into this or out of this. One thing i would ask is, no spoliers....if im going to do this, i dont want it spoiled now do i!
