    Interesting.

    Superficially, the initial scene reminds me a little of the Hearts of Steel mini-series. Also, impressed they recalled the scene from the 2007 movie prequel, turning one of those two previously anonymous characters into Simmons' ancestor. Similar art and same dialogue, too.

    That's better continuity than most IDW TF books :p 

    Simmons later changes his tune. A scene set later on with those two characters when they discuss what to do with Witwicky and the expedition to see the "mega man" is was in the 2007 movie prequel.

    So, Sector 7 is actually "The Adventures of Sherlock Simmons"... weird, but not too bad so far. And, yeah, dragons?!? Really?!?

    Don't count on it. They just seem like some generic, prehistoric cave dwelling monsters that were used to sell these two as paranormal investigators. That's the impression I'm getting from it, anyways.

    Lol, this seems fun, like Transformers meets BPRD, I guess the idea is to just to do a fun non-canon story that also includes details of TF3's backstory.

    Looks good. I love the way the colorist has done everything with a slight sepia overtone to give it all the feeling of a flashback without it outright being in black and white.

    Looks good so far. I'll look forward to getting it.

    Not sure what to make of those animals. But the Decepticon skull intrigues me to no end... the art on the humans here looks much better then in Nefarious. Thank God no Carlos Magno here.

    lol I donno about this book. I mean it kind of looks interesting. But in no way does it feel like a Transformers book. And it's not the human centered side of it either.

    I'd actually love something like that. But this...I donno, just doesn't seem to work for me...Maybe it's just the weird random dragon things. Just a little too much over the top.

    There's a correction to the credits listed.

    The issue was actually written by John Barber with art provided by Joe Suitor. It was listed incorrectly on Comics Continuum.

    Anyone think like me that these Dragons are creatures experimented on by the Decepticons? Think about Beast Wars, the Mechanical Raptors...
