A couple of people over at the Allspark noted that this might be a contractual obligation series, ie: Hasbro demanded comic book support for the toy release, hence the compressed schedule coinciding with the toy hitting shelves.
One thing I do look forward to in this is that there is no way it's not going to be a hilarious pile of super self referential fanwank. Should be good for a giggle. And panel photoshopping.

That first page is definitely a lot less cluttered than a lot of Alex Milne's previous. I just can't get behind it because of the writer who has produced nothing I am interested in at all. Both TF and non TF work. Still i am sure Alex will share a few pages via his DeviantArt page over the coming months.
Yep, cluttered art where I find it very hard to work out what's going on while a self-insertion character does 'BAD-ASS' things for no apparent reason other than it's 'cool'. Yeah, I can happily save my pennies.
I'll be buying a copy, but only the trade version(which oddly, according to amazon comes out before the ironhide trade does)
Considering how quickly the trade is due and that the single issues are coming out fortnightly it's not unreasonable to assume the series is a tie-in to the just released toy. Perhaps Hasbro want a trade out while the toy is still on shelves.
