    Nice to see this. I really like this defiance story so far, makes me want an ongoing movie comic.

    Quick comment... readin the narration on page 1 has me puzzled, but I think I have it figured out...

    It's not Megatron - the dialogue suggests whoever's speaking was around when this struggle took place. And Megs wasn't given that he's on Cybertron in peacetime.

    It can't be The Fallen, given he's probably the object of great power being sought out (that was hidden away).

    However... could it perhaps be SOUNDWAVE? Given his head design, and mysterious mission parameters unrelated to the hunt for the Allspark (which even still draws him to Earth despite it being unrelated) I'm speculating that Soundwave's the one who survived, looking to liberate his master.

    EDIT: More thoughts... The "Betrayal. Violence. Murder." sounds a LOT like the betrayal of The Fallen of the original 13 to me. Which puzzles me.

    Is the Fallen showing Megatron the past or the future? If the former, the war must be more recent than we thought.

    Did it come out yesterday? It wasn't on Diamond Comic's shipping list and the IDW site lists a release date of March 4.

    The release date is March 4th. Unless some comic stores got it early.

    Looks like the Fallen is giving Megatron a history lesson. Very cool.

    That is Megatron. Obviously this is while he was searching for the Allspark.

    I don't know about that... to me the narration suggests that this is BEFORE the war still.

    It's not Megs. He was " chillin' '' up north during these events. Being offline and buried in ice, there was no chance anyone else from Cybertron could have detected him until the Military moved him to the Hoover Dam ops center.
    Also, Megatron had a slightly different look and a definite silver appearance in all of the other Prequel and standard movie comics. It may be Soundwaves narration or it may be a 3rd person human perspective, possibly a historian who has come across ancient text and the pictures we are seeing are actually filling in the story that the historian is only partially able to picture in his mind. A historian or archeologist can only deduce that something bad happened, the viewer/reader (us) gets the privelege of seeing just how bad that something really is.
    This is only a guess but strikes me as being the most logical given the situation and past story styles.
