I thought this comic was decent, albeit not as good as the first one. Some parts were honestly confusing, and I think they screwed up who was Simmons and who was Wells again-- unless my notions of who was who were messed up in #1 in the first place. I also find it REALLY hard to believe there's a Transformer-sized underground tunnel going all the way from the Arctic to Nevada for some reason. The Simmons family troubles put an interesting spin on things, though, and the story told about how they find out about the TF-making properties of the Allspark is pretty interesting. I do think Barber is starting to rely a bit too much on the "Notes" page at the end of the comic to explain everything, though-- it's nice for fleshing out the story and certain historical events to help clarify certain things mentioned in passing, but I'm starting to NEED the "Notes" page to make complete sense of the comic... which I shouldn't.
