Autocracy - worth the price?

    So I was fiddling about on the Android and was considering picking up IDW's Transformers Autocracy. I hear it's really good but is it worth paying 99c per issue (12 issues in total, 8 pages each)? I'm not mad about reading comics on my phone, or even online at all as I much prefer teh feel of a good old fashioned paper graphic novel. Are there any plans to release it in TPB? If so I may just wait for that...

    I picked up the TPB in Dublin City Comics yesterday for €20. They have a few copies left.
    I really liked the story. The characters were well fleshed out and there were some really nice moments
    the bit where they ape the 1986 movie, but with a twist, was quite cool
    I actually liked the artwork too. It was by the same guy that did Chaos. I wasn't a big fan of Chaos' artwork, but this was nicer. The same style but a much richer colour palette - gave it a much nicer look and it was easier to make out the details/see what was going on. That said
    the bit where Ravage ripped up Bumblebee and Hound
    was a bit choppy/hard to make out what just happened[/spoiler] - the hazards of very short issues I suppose.
