Another really enjoyable issue. Scott is packing the book with the dense intrigue and politics of barber's rid season 1. The combaticons are awesome. I enjoy ironhide's drill sergeant role. So that's what happened to swindle. I definitely feel like we need more of rattrap here. There seems to be a big gap between him saving prowl, to prowl showing up in sins, and now mtmte 56. Like is prowl in hiding? Or not... or... ? And what is rattrap's real allegiance? So I'm assuming onslaught's plan is to use the enigma to form with swindle in order to access his otherwise brain-dead mind for evidence against Starscream. Question is... what happens when bruticus forms? I still realllly dislike the enigma of magic though. Mildly unsettling that rattrap has such a powerful item stashed.
