Can a series both excite and frustrate? Yes, it's called All Hail Megatron. #4 is much of the same. Like with past issues, I get more and more excited as I read through expecting there to be some big payoff. We get some partial answers to questions, but get more questions in the process. The cliffhanger was kind of a downer too. More doomed Autobots on Cybertron? Unless there's a surprise on who else was with Hot Rod, does it really change the status of the Autobots on Cybertron from the status at the beginning of the issue? Seems like it really went in one big circle with that plot point. Although they hinted at several individuals being the traitor, seems like they're really trying to suggest it was Mirage who caused the Autobots to be in their current state. Bait to fool us? Truth? We'll see. Unclear on how they got to Cybertron. Ironhide seems to suggest they were "shot" back to Cybertron by the Decepticons. Doesn't seem very Decepticon-like to defeat your longtime foe and let them live. There's definately got to be more to the story than we know there. So, Prime's in the state that he apparently sacraficed himself for his troops. All available energy is being fed to him to keep him alive. Nice execution on some of the character personalities though. Loved the focus on Wheeljack. Cliffjumper constantly watching a powered-down computer and then seeing that fraction-of-a-second warning light signal that Wheeljack sent was hysterical. Guido's art was sweet once again. Seems as if Drift is coming in Issue #5. While the arc is frustrating me thus far with not being more forthcoming with details or moving the plot along, I still get excited about waiting for the next issue to see what happens. Being a third of the way though the arc, some answers and plot movement should be happening soon.
