I must say E.J. Su's artwork gets better and better with each issue. Also the coloring seems better than usual this issue. This issue we get Megs and company starting a rift in foreign land Brasnya. Megatron mass shifts into a gun small enough for a human (facsimile) to hold in what apparently is the first time in a long time in the IDW universe. Megs is also juiced up on ORE-13 and packing quite a wallop. I liked the strategy talks between Prowl and Optimus in this issue, and the arguing between Ironhide and Prowl. The table is set for a showdown between Optimus vs Blitzwing and Astrotrain for next issue. Also the Spotlights start to make more sense as Nightbeat, Hot Rod, and Hardhead make cameos at the end and prepare to enter the fray. Pretty good issue, can't wait for a nice robotic throwdown next issue.
