I think that between this, the really quite good Revolutionaries, and the middling-to-okay first strike we gotta start admitting this shared universe has got some teeth so far. You know, two good teeth and one chipped one. More, potentially, as I'm by now convinced to pick up ROM But this issue was tops! Enjoying Ultra Magnus' escalating death fake-outs, Stardrive's easily-swayed optimism, and Starscream's batshit ruthlessness. Rom is a bit of a cypher but he, along with everything else in the issue, sure looks purrrrty. That panel of UM tanking a barrage of laser spam is a real delight.
