    The sheer awful terror of what happened to Tailgate capped with Fangry switching to alt mode just to do a hilariously cute little 'dog burying a bone' thing....then the little The End! tag on the last panel that for some reason felt like twisting the knife...I've never been so horrified yet delighted at a final page in all of my years of reading comics. :lol 

    What an amazing issue overall. I especially loved Rodimus talking UM into functioning again. Just brilliant.

    I'm not so sure this is the end for Tailgate. I think maybe that Fangry SAID six million years but accidentally set it for six million seconds or something. That would be a good punchline to the comment he made about being such an "attentive student".

    I thought this issue was pretty good. It was almost entirely character moments and I eat that stuff up.

    I'm not giving up on Tailgate just yet. There are a few too many potential outs to just go "Aw, he ded.", such as:
    . Is Tailgate capable of busting out of the tomb before the radiation hits to hard? (guessing probably not)
    . While Fangry set the vault lock for six million years, is the radiation pulse also set proportionally?
    . What's keeping anyone left on the planet from wondering where Tailgate and/or Kaput went and searching (besides Fangry)
    . Same thing for the guys that left, especially if they return within three months.

    I'm guessing Cyclonus (with or without Whirl) is coming after Fangry eventually, regardless of Tailgate's final fate.

    Man I was sad to see Kaput go, been a fan since Zero Point. I enjoyed this issue.

    Well done for waiting that long as you run the risk of someone with less moral fortitude thinking of that joke first (that would be someone like me) well played

    I don't believe that Tailgate will die. It's a cruel scene, but everything will be fine.

    I mean if lug came back surely Tailgate could, they've practically already set up his resurrection.

    Maybe they could somehow bring back Skids as part of Tailgate remaining dead. I'd be down with that. :cool:

    I was hoping that too but it turns out Rung manufactures Photonic Crystals so that's Spark storage means but not a lifesource in and of themselves.

    True, but it had only been a few hours since Skids' death, maybe enough time for his spark remnants to go into the crystal created by Rung.

    True, but there might be a way of using his technology. I dunno, I just really want Skids back XD. I'm actually willing to have a magic wand at this point.

    And he was right alongside Skids when it happened.

    Between Skids and Tailgate, I'll take Skids all the way. One of my favourite characters even before Mtmte and I feel his death was sort of wasted.

    That tumblr post is incredible, I love when fan theories actually hold water rather than just a big what if.

    Regarding Magnus, it's clearly a coping mechanism. Someone you trusted and relied on has seemingly betrayed you? Time to regress and spit on his name. I took it for a version of the debilitating effect depression can have. Not saying he was depressed but it seemed like a very physical manifestation of an emotional episode.

    I've very much been on the fence with this comic and quite honestly, just read it out of habit now rather than interest but I must say, it's actually these threads that keep me on life support as it were. The discussion and ideas are largely why I enjoy fandom in general.
