IDW have done some pretty good TF comics, so it might be quite good.

I did have exodus on preorder, but, when i found out it was a novel i cancelled it until i am able to read a sample chapter, as i haven't read anything else by alex irvine, so i don't know what his style is like.

EDIT: apparantly the novel will feature one of the original 13 transformers.

I would like the comic book, but I'll probably end up buying my copy of the game at Best Buy, since I have some coupons, so I rather pay less for the game.
As for the book, I have it pre-ordered, and I'm fine with it being a novel, I have a couple of old TF novels, and have enjoyed them so far.

Sounds good, i had originally intended to purchase the game wherever was cheapest online, however, at the mo its the same price everywhere.

I hear alex irvine has written some good stuff, its just if i haven't read any of the authors material i like to read abit first and get a feel.

I did the same with TF ghosts of yesterday and TF the veiled threat, as it happened the sample chapter for the ghosts was better, but, in the end i preferred the veiled threat.

I'm guessing that we'll be able to get the comic book on eBay soon enough anyways (or at least that's what I hope). I would have preffered the video game stores gave the comic book instead of multiplayer characters, since those are probably end up as DLC eventually.
