Otherwise known as "Dawn of Future's Past" or The Beast Wars Prequel. I was surprised to find this in my pull list this evening when I went to pick up my comics. I didn't see another thread about it, so here goes. Brief story synopsis: the story details the theft of the golden disk, but not how Megatron learned about it. We see most if not all the season one BW characters in pre-beast mode, as well as the stasis pod for protoform X. G1 Buzzsaw and Laserbeak make an appearance, as do Divebomb and Razorclaw. - Fannish: that's my overall impression. For what it is, the story isn't bad, but it commits the cardinal sin of several "nudge nudge wink wink" continuity references, like the G1 Predacons, and Tigatron and Airrazor being briefly acquainted before the mission. - A tighter story with less action and more intrigue would have suited me more, but that's criticizing the story for what it isn't I suppose, which isn't really fair. - The art's not bad. I think it's generally the same team that produces the club magazine comic. A nice surprise, but not a very deep story. A quick and reasonable read, marred by too many geeky fanboy continuity references.
