Hmm, this issue was disappointing to me. And I loved this series. Windblade becoming more independent is great, but as the only real outcome from the issue that's a let down imo. Bumblebee? The Combaticons? None of it progressed. Progressing/resolving it all in an annual seems a little off, idk, maybe it's because in my day annuals were less easily available so I don't expect major plot line resolving events to happen in them. We did get more on Starscream's past, and got to see 'the real him' (kind of like RID Stormshot), giving us more sympathy for his character. It all felt a bit self-consciously revelatory to me though, and ended up being a bit [shrug]. The art is great as usual. This just felt more like a whimper than a bang for me.
