I've always been infatuated with the character of Barricade. Just, his entire concept. Decepticon cop car. His whole "punish and enslave" schtick. The works. It feels like forever ago, but in the years between Transformers 2007 and Revenge of the Fallen, when I was grasping for any depth that I could from that first movie, the mystery of "where did Barricade go" sucked me in hard. My interest in it (and him) was only amplified by the fact that he had a toy released during the Revenge of the Fallen under the Human Alliance subline, and well, that got me thinking, and then we found out he was coming back for Dark of the Moon, and well, I was off to the races. Parts of these first few pages are kind of raw, and I even contemplated redoing them, but they were made during a certain period of my life and well, I made them to read, so here they are.
