Admittedly, not a whole lot happens in this issue beyond set up; moving people places and so forth. Which I guess is to be expected as a lead up to a "large event" like Chaos. Still, this and the previous issue have been two of the nicest looking in the entire ongoing. - Garnak is becoming a fast favorite member of Hot Rod's crew of misfits. I hope he sticks around for a while. - That said, I feel bad for Hot Rod as the only guy to realize just what a crappy situation he woke up to and trying desperately to get Garnak and Wheelie to listen to him. Thinking he died upon seeing Ironhide and Sunstreaker was pretty charming as well. - I wonder if anybody's ever going to be able to fully fix Wheelie's atrophied arm? Its been grayed out (which I appreciate the various colorists remembering) and had limited functionality since Spotlight: Wheelie. - It will be... interesting, to see how Ironhide reacts when he finally learns that Hot Rod was the one that got him killed and that Sunstreaker is the bot chiefly responsible for the shitty situation the Autobots have endured for the past 4-5 years. - Sunstreaker giving his pet a human name is... very curious. I wonder how/if that ties into the genocidal feelings he harbored toward humans in AHM. - Also curious, is the missing Autobot insignia from Sunstreaker's chest. It might just be me, but the art almost calls attention to it in a number of shots. - There wasn't room for it, but it would've been nice to see some reaction from Wheelie about Cybertron. This is the first time he's been home in who knows how many hundreds or thousands of years and to find Cybertron completely in ruins and abandoned... just would've been nice to get some input from the little guy. - Considering one of the central themes of AHM was the trauma that Sunstreaker suffered at the hands of The Machination, its interesting (to me at least) that he's the one to ask, "What in the hell happened to him?" about Wheelie. - Oh neat. Hot Rod transformed again! Twice in one issue! - Nice little art touch, as Wheelie is lining up his shot, a targeting display appears in his right optic. - Hot damn is it ever nice to see Galvatron drawn by a proper artist again... sweet fancy moses I can't tell you how good it is to see him in full IDW model glory again and not this barrel-chested, tiny headed, midget abomination. Thank you Guido! - That is... a whole lot of Sweeps! I went back to AHM #14 to see how many they started out with and it looks like Scourge initially had a flock of five. But it also seemed to me that their numbers had been diminished due to the events of Infestation. I wonder if Galvatron hasn't been converting some of his new army from Heart of Darkness or some of the Swarm into new Sweeps? - Sunstreaker is wearing quite the "Oh god, oh god... not there!" face as Hot Rod reveals their destination. - Prime looks *hot pissed* on the cover preview for next issue. This issue was a really nice payoff for last year's Ironhide mini-series. At the time, I'd been left wondering if we were ever gonna see Sunstreaker or Ironhide again. Dialogue between them and Hot Rod makes me wonder how long ago Galvatron and crew touched down on Cybertron and how long Ironhide and Sunstreaker have been trying to avoid them... Also have to wonder about Hot Rod's insistence on getting reinforcements? There's nothing and no one on Cybertron, why the need to throw down with Galvatron and not just leave him be? ...especially since last I checked, thus far Hot Rod shouldn't even know who Galvatron or any of his dudes are.
