    Once again, another nicely done issue. I'm really loving this series. It's not necessarily the most intriguing comic series ever done, but its been completely entertaining throughout the first four issues. Well worth the money.

    The Bulkhead-Powell story was fun. Nice to see what else Powell does with his time and all of those crazy Bulkhead repaints. Bulkhead's attempts at art on the show finally come into use in this issue as well. Spike, Carly, Daniel all makes a cameo. Professor Princess' reaction upon seeing the girly-colored Bulkhead was hysterical, as well as Bumblebee's new paint job to close out the story.

    The Lockdown/Blackarachnia piece wasn't necessarily my favorite, but also helped to fill in some of the small gaps in the storyline. We get a name of Lungut's punch. I don't have it in front of me now, but I believe it was called something like Lungut's "Punch that Kills Everything". In one frame, one may also notice that Lockdown's spare parts on his ship include what looks like the Matrix of Leadership as well as what appears to be the head of Animated Bug Bite!

    "Punch of Kill Everything" which I thought I first saw here on TFW.

    I also spotted Movie Prime's Premium Axe on the wall of Lockdown's ship. :p

    OMG OMG OMG! THE PUNCH OF KILL EVERYTHING IS REAL NOW!

    I LOVE YOU ISENBERG!

    *hyperventilates*

    Yeah, I came up with it back when "Lost & Found" first aired. Isenberg really liked it, and promised to work it into the series at Botcon. Its abbreviation is the P.O.K.E.

    So far this book has been quite enjoyable. More so I feel since I Love the show and this is an extension of it instead of its own continuity. That being said I realy liked the Bulkhead story. I wonder if it is possible that we may see future repaints to reflect those seen in the story. Hasbro does love their repaints.

    It was also nice to see how Blackarachnia ended up on earth.
