    Yeah, it was said a while back that Galvatron had done battle with the "Ancient Headmasters."

    Oh man, I am so excited for this issue. I've been looking forward to seeing pre-Nova Prime Cybertron for a while. Already interesting stuff here, like the namedrop of "Nexus."

    Yup, you can thank Abnett and Lanning for creating a tremendous continuity error in Heart of Darkness, that Barber is now paving over.

    Galvatron's face getting a little Wildman in that last panel of the third page.

    That's definitely Coller. He's awesome for covers but comic art always end up looking empty and static to me.

    Colours are probably by Lafuente since she's been doing all of the flashback scenes in RID.

    I love how that Headmaster error in HoD left stuff open for future Barber continuity fixing.

    (As Barber continuity fixing is the best kind.)

    Loving the art.

    These three pages are probably more interesting than anything that happened in #29, so at least this issue's off to a good start.

    I'm loving the name Myskrion. Up there with Heretech as far as Cool Wordplay Names go.

    Whoever joked all Galvatron does is rip stuff in half wasn't kidding, I guess. :lol 

    This looks cool...I think I'd rather have an entire issue dedicated to this flashback world than going back to whatever's going on present day with EDC.

    Heh, after Galvatron's relationship with Nova during Devastation & Dark Cybertron, the "GALVATRON HAS NO MASTER" response was fully expected. :lol 
    It certainly coincides with how we've already seen him treat his "superiors."

    I love the stories to take place in the past. Even Barber gets those right.

    .....Now fastforward back to boring Earth with the stupid humans I guess.

    "Nexus' Enigma"... that's an Aligned continuity reference. Specifically, Nexus Prime is the member of the thirteen representing combiners, and his gift is the "Enigma of Combination". Coupled with Prima's aligned design in that one Council/Senate hall seen in both Chaos Theory and Shadowplay, and that thinly veiled reference to "thirteen ancient tribes of Cybertron" in Dark Cybertron's later stages, it speaks volumes about how the big retcon- no Thirteen in the IDW conitnuity- is falling to pieces now that Furman's no longer there to enforce it and people who actually care about continuity are at the head (read: not Costa).

    I think so. Part of me curious why bring Galvatron's past. I also intrigue to what Answers Prowl has to give to Optimus why he went Devastator.

    This Galvatron reminds me of his 1980s toy
