    Took me a second to figure it out, but the SG panels with rounded corners are flashbacks. Pointy corners are current events.

    Thoughts:
    Shattered Glass II issue 1 - I'm quite excited to read the full thing. I like the idea of Ultra Magnus/Delta Magnus wearing the hologram to hide the skull face ngl. Looks good so far and I like the artstyle.
    Last Bot Standing issue 4 - Again, I'm quite excited for this one too. I liked the previous three issues and I hope this one won't be a disappointment! Artstyle and covers are awesome too.

    Keen to read but gotta be totally honest, what I appreciated about the start of this series was this coarse-ness to rodimus, I really liked the mood, the desperation, the vibe of it. Now I just feel it has missed the mark, it kinda beats the same dead horse over and over without really doing much with it’s more absurd pieces (wheelie, moon) which ultimately feeling like window dressing. I’m a bit conflicted about Steeljaw, I do like the inclusion/his character somewhat and I appreciate his soliloquising, which contrasts him to the minimal and crude pre-key rodimus, and I like that the motivation of his crew isn’t just pure villainy or whatever but need, but now it’s just fucking yak yak yak.

    This has actually been addressed in the text tho; sure, they’re standing on a planet worth of energon, but they’re not able to refine or use it for quite some time, and the energon vials/keys are there now. Sure, they’ve altered their intake and everything to consume other fuel but it clearly doesn’t satiate them or even make them feel themselves. This is a hit now, and when you’re desperate for a fix, long-term thinking goes out the window.

    There you go assuming these guys are actually reading anything beyond the five page preview...

    That said, simply living on Earth would be enough experience to know it's not as easy as "planet contains thing, therefore thing is not scarce." Look at current struggles with regard to mining oil, as well as raw materials to make stuff like transistors and other electronics. And even if there is a group capable of extracting that resource, refining and distributing becomes a whole other thing. Again, with real-world comps available simply watching competition for oil.

    Democratic Republic of the Congo technically has the most mineral wealth in the whole world but it’s been absolutely decimated by greed, underdevelopment and colonialism for decades. Or wait no they’re just dumb dumbs who don’t know how to do eBay good.

    I'm sure there's some useful stuff in Brazil but we'll need to raize that stupid rainforest to get to it. Nothing bad could come of that right?

    I have no idea if your joking but i will have you know, that "stupid forest" is currently supplying over half the oxygen you need to breath. But you don't need that right?

    Reading comprehension isn’t a strong point for @BB Shockwave.

    Truth be told, I’m not sure what is.
