Was not a fan of this, unfortunately. A lot of it just felt like pointless filler too me. It really just seemed like Barber was trying too hard to be clever with his dialogue. It borders on self-parody at times. The art is fine and dandy... for the most part. Griffith REALLY has to work on his human faces, because there was only like one instance of Marissa being drawn by him that I didn't think was completely terrible. I thought the flashback was by far the best part of the issue. So then we get to my main complaint... the human/Decepticon alliance. I'm sorry, I don't buy it. I'd hoped there would be more to it, and there very well may be more revealed in the future - but as it's being presented right now, I don't buy it. You have Galvatron standing there, making it blatantly obvious he's only interested in blowing the shit out of everything and little else, yet these humans are just gonna overlook that because Soundwave shut him up and gave a little inspirational speech? They try to justify it, with stuff like Jazz's killing of the human back in the Ongoing, but it overall just seems INCREDIBLY flimsy to me. I really hope there's more to it, because right now, it's completely nonsensical IMO. And honestly, there's not that much more to this issue. Jetfire's little drone buddy is cute I guess? But that's about it. Weakest issue of the month for me. 2/5.
