    The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

    These are some of those stories. This is:

    So awesome, in just one page, Furman gives us plenty of answers and glimpses to post-Devastation events. Also, nice to see some Starkings lettering and cool 90's type art.:)

    Now I want to catch up with the IDW TF comics.

    So, this clearly works.

    First off, nice art and great short by Furman. In one page, he sets up the next couple of years for the plot.

    That said, I do hope we get to see some "real" Headmasters soon. Not that I haven't enjoyed seeing Sunstreaker get some development, but I'm wondering if we're going to ever see the characters who are suppose to be headmaster get their new heads. Seeing Sunstreaker as he is now, just makes me want a toy we'll never get.

    According to Simon's blog, this fit into IDW canon as well, being set two years in the future. So, looks like we have some possible Devastation #6 and All Hail Megatron spoilers.

    Just starting, it was building up through Escalation but Devastation pretty much starts the deployment of them.

    I didn't think I'd be spoiled by reading Mosaic. Forgot about Furman's blog regarding this.

    Oh well, it's nothing I couldn't have already guessed.

    Nice story. Sunny's face sure looks ugly though, imho, since he's supposed to be such a prettyboy. Nice teaser of things to come. Will we get to see Hunter's sister? I still want to know what Sides is going to think about this whole Headmaster thing and the changes to his brother.
