    LEAVE IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE ISSUE YET, GO HAVE YOUR MIND BLOWN THE RIGHT WAY!

    Both MTMTE and RiD are out on Comixology.

    Just finished MTMTE.

    Thoughts on the ending: I DON'T EVEN-HOW THE WHAT?!

    At the end I literally said "No fucking way!" out loud to nobody.

    And suddenly that throwaway line of Skids in the last issue became all important and it all made perfect sense. Just fucking genius writing, so totally worth it!

    I did too! I think this issue is going to have that effect on a lot of people. So can we assume Rung is awake?

    Is Skids becoming a favorite for anyone else?

    Which line? I don't have the issue in front of me.

    EDIT: Also, HOLY COW THAT LAST PAGE. And Tailgate's astonishment that Pax/Prime are the same person.... it's quite brilliant, honestly. Of course WE know this because it's been over 25 years since "War Dawn", but why the hell should a time-lost Cybertronian hearing an orally-recounted story know?

    Red Alert was decapitated by.. himself, as many supposed. So, is it suicide? Or mind-control?

    Aaaaand, Senator
    Shockwave
    had been befreinding people (such as
    Zeta
    ) and modifying them to carry the Matrix...

    ...I think I can't sleep well tonight (0:20 AM here). Trailbreaker, please let me drink your Nightmare Fuel :drunk

    Yay, lucky for me the Transformers comics are back online on Comixology here, so I was able to snag a digital copy...


    I'm speechless.

    Good lord, I FORGOT ABOUT THAT LAST BIT. OF COURSE
    Zeta
    is among the modified. It makes too much sense.

    Also, I presently have a theory that Overlord was somehow connected to the Institute back in the day. This sort of mental butchering is something that strikes me as a thing he'd be involved with on some level.

    Oh my god I did not expect that.

    And if those two panels with Rung and Skids didn't make me ship them, i don't think anything will /slapped

    What I want to know now is how long Alex (and to a lesser extent Josh) have been sitting on this info. Alex especially, given he worked on Chaos Theory.

    I'm in utter shock.


    I laughed out loud seeing the Red Skull holding Professor X's brain at the end of Uncanny Avengers #1.

    I slightly cringed when the Joker nearly caused Harley to allow her face to be cut off in Batman #13


    But at the last page, I literally yelled out "OH MY GOD!"

    Totally blown away. I'm amazed, sad, giddy, and exhausted at the sheer brilliance of the writing in this title.

    Sorry, the line I was thinking of was in this issue, because it was in the Preview it feels like it was in a previous one. 'I love how nobody ever uses the Acadamy's full name anymore...'

    Is this going to be an issue where TFWiki won't post the synopsis until a month afterwards?

    Probably not. Only reason the wiki isn't up to date yet is because Chris Mcfeely hasn't had a chance to yet.

    REALLY hope that they hold off a bit on merging the unnamed senator article though with that of his identity.

    Given the neutron bomb properties of the reveal (
    it's Shockwave, right?
    ), THAT I would be fine with the month-long wait.

    Any juicy details on who The Team (cue TF2 theme) is composed of?

    The Team's pretty much all shown in the preview, so it's fair game:

    -Pax
    -Ratchet
    -Glitch
    -Windcharger
    -Skids

    Really, it's great as it reads like a heist movie, with the "here's the plan" narration occurring as the heist is onscreen. I love that trope.

    I'm fine without the brief synop for now.

    TFWiki will suit me fine for that.

    I'm assuming that the big reveal that has everyone agog (the senator aside) involves Skids and Rung somehow?
