    I stuck it out for the entire Rom and Micronauts separate series, but neither was all that great. I did not go forward with the combined series. The only IDW title I'm reading is G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.

    Whole Hasbro-verse was pretty much dead on arrival.

    I think it's easier for G.I. Joe and Transformers to be in a shared universe --if nothing else, the Transformers live-action movies have shown how giant robots and human soldiers can fight together--but including all the other Hasbro action figure properties might have been overkill. Not all shared universes work, IMO.

    I don't know when it happened, but I eventually lost interest in both ROM and Micronauts because of the art.
    It wasn't bad... it just wasn't what I wanted for them. It just seemed too cartoon-ish. And ROM's art bordered on looking like wood-cuttings.

    I would've eaten up Micronauts and Rom if they'd given it to someone like Stephen Thompson, who was on Satellite Falling at the time.

    I think it had massive potential, but the execution was botched. I do think its salvageable, but it needs Transformers and a well-written G.I. Joe to be the driving force.

    I think they should have went with two universes.One for humans (GI Joe,Action Man,MASK) and another for aliens/robots (Transformers,ROM...)

    I think they should have went with no shared universe at all. Every property works best on its own...

    M.A.S.K. and G.I.Joe could totally work in the same world. Joe and Transformers has been shown to work, at least in the comics and with how the movies interact Autobots and the military it's not a stretch.

    Rom and Micronauts in the same universe is an easy buy in as well. If you used smaller Transformers like Mini-Cons and the such you could more easily incorporate elements of Transformers I think.

    Visionaries is kind of the odd one out.

    Hasbro is rethinking it's idea for a shared movie universe. Rom is no longer in development. Micronauts is still coming and another G.I Joe movie is being considered. Transformers is still going forward. M.A.S.K. may also be no longer in development. I also noticed in the latest IDW solicitations that ROM and the Micronauts is a five issue limited series. Maybe now the comics shared universe is over. Although Transformers meets G.I. Joe mini-series once or twice a year (like Devil's Due use to do) would work.

    Visionaries is the one with the fantasy & magic aspect, so that would be the one that would require transportation between different realms, IMO.

    Just caught up a little with Lost Light.

    Getaway really has been made into a wonderful villain. He's effective, ruthless and you just completely hate his guts. Poor Protectobots, though.

    I just finished Phase 1 of Transformers. Seriously, that was the ending? I felt like they suddenly got told that they only had one issue left to finish it, very strange.

    Can you be more specific? What did you find jarring and sudden?
