    "Just don't".

    Prime is really going out of his way with these anti-drug PSA's.

    I actually got this yesterday and I thought it was good - I like the way they're cleaning up the art in the movie verse comics (compare Nefarious art to that in the official movie adaptation, where at times really most of the robots were drawn as squiggles).

    I'm not feeling the top secret organisation story line, but mainly because that seems to be the go to for most Transformers comic series these days (which is why I considered most of AHM to be somewhat of a fresh breath)

    I'm also left wandering if IDW recently sort of backdooring Spotlight esque stylings into issues of their ongoing series via ongoing internal monologue/narration (like Ongoing 4 with Thundercracker, and this with Optimus Prime) is a deliberate decision or not.

    The art is very similar the the Aliens: Labyrinth graphic novel. Read it if you haven't. It's a bad guys might win kinda tale. And the Aliens aren't the bad guys.

    Captain Falcon must have taught Prime to say YES! after he crushes his enemies.

    jeesh what's with the bots in the lower left panel of page 2? pick it up and be more consistent magno...

    not sure how much i'm digging the Machination-- er I mean Initiative plotline, but the bot action has been great so far in thsi mini. I also like how Prime is taking matters into his own hands at the end of this book re: Soundwave.

    Not sure how I feel about the quick and easy transformer deaths though. Would rather have some humans get stomped and have the bad guys come back another day. Guess it plays to the 'anything goes' feel of the movie-verse.

    Not bad overall, I'm intrigued as to where things are going.

    Amazing. Simply amazing. Nefarious #2 has already been released, and yet we know nothing. Well, I don't anyway.

    I think one of the most interesting points about this series, so far, is the semi-political intrigue. Having Galloway basically just tell NEST it's over, they no longer exist, Prime not knowing if they can even trust anyone outside of Lennox and Epps...kinda interesting.

    Though I wish SOME of the new TF chars would have something substantial to add. They're all either just cannon fodder or background troops to beef up the ranks that don't do anything on their own. It's okay if you don't bring in EVERY toy-only ROTF character, Furman. A few is fine, so long as you use them well. (Yes, Mowry did some of this as well, but there were still enough new chars that actually DROVE the story in Reign of Starscream-- Thundercracker, Ramjet, Dreadwing, Arcee-- that I didn't really mind some others being "hi-then-die" cameos.)

    As far as the art goes, for the most part it's much better than Magnos' TOTF work, but he's taking too much artistic license on some of the designs. Reverb, outside of his shoulder panels, looks nothing like his toy, with a REALLY skinny bug face and four arms. Dune Runner has what looks like Bumblebee's head, only colored green-- etc.

    Yeah I'm not a fan of that. I was hoping Galloway would get the boot after RoTF. It perpetuates a military complex and is distrustful of the government, things the current administration (I think) has rightfully and successfully tried to avoid with its scalpel use of force and transparency.

    This issue was FRICKIN' AWESOME! The best part was the final scene with Soundwave and the Autobots, especially when Prime came down from the plane, and beat the snot outta' Soundwave.

    Could someone PLEASE explain what happens in the comic? I've looked everywhere, tried the internet and my nearest comic store, and I still know nothing.

    Okay-ish story but the art quality is deteriorating rapidly, ugh.
