    Wow. It's like Shakespeare for kids.

    Shakespearian monologue in a TRANSFORMERS comic!? Most confusing! But not any less creative, I suppose. I'd say this one deserves a favorite of the upmost congradulations!

    I don't really have a Deviantart account and I'm not going to make one just to comment on this but why has no one mentioned Dinobot to these two?

    This comic isn't even really Shakespeare. However Dinobot literally did quotes from Hamlet during the beast wars changing only a few of the references in the original speech so it was relevant to the show.

    99% of Dinobot's season two lines were shakespeare rip offs. Well, season one too. That's kinda why I think they should have killed him off after saying "improvise"

    But still that scene with rattrap was too touching to leave out.

    The title of the G1 episode "Sea Change" comes from a line in The Tempest.

    Megatron said "Parting is such sweet sorrow" in The Ultimate Doom. Even Decepticons appreciate the Bard.
