    Is that snarl melting on the last page? I do like the humans with a alien super weapon setup and grimlocks mysterious mission humming through his brain.

    This looks like a well written and drawn book. By all means pick it up when you see it.

    That is a scene from the spotlight of Shockwave. I didn't read it all, but shockwave kicks the dinobots into the ground.

    I can't stand this face on Grimlock. I really do hope that they change it at some point.

    Mmmm. Dinobots.

    When Don first redesigned Grimlock for War Within I thought it was cool that Grimlock had teeth on his mouthplate.

    But in this issue the teeth are too large, and too contrasted against the robot face. It has gone from "cool, Grimlock has teeth" to "LOOK AT MY FACE! SEE THE TEETH!?".

    I don't hate it, I just think it needs to be more understated.

    Grimlock? More like Grinlock. Those 'teeth' look kinda ridiculous, I'm sorry to say.

    Gasp! Grimlock regrets!

    I've seen before Grimlock regreting the jerkish thing he did but not the first pages of his own spotlight comic before.

    Holy spit does this look good.

    Looks like it might supply justification to give modern Grimlock his characteristic speech patterns. Of course, we'll have to wait until he actually speaks before we'll know about that.

    Nice. Althought knowing that this all takes place before AHM kind of spoils the story:(

    Man, Grimlock's gonna be so pissed when he wakes up. This issue is a must have for me. I ain't waiting for the eventual Spotlight Vol. 3 collection to see Grimlock tear it up.

    Nifty that Grimlock's eyes behind the lens covers are drawn in the Movie style.

    More faceplate ribbed to give a suggestion of teeth, less "Little Shop of Horrors" mouth on a Transformer. Thanks. :) 

    Actually, the responsibility lies with the colorist here. Those should be the came dark gray as the rest of Grimlock's head.
