    LOL, seems like a pretty massive spoiler on that cover.

    With Elita? Perhaps, but then again Arcee and Wheeljack have been on the covers since issue 1 and the closest thing they’ve gotten to an appearance is Wheeljack lying dead on Ratchet’s table in the latest issue.

    Indeed
    I wonder if the cover at is going to relate to the story now.

    I read issue 4 yesterday. It's the longest issue to date. I've really enjoyed this series so far.

    It's the correct color. It is painted. That's not his original arm.....

    That's megatrons. Prime is using megatrons arm. Remember he tore off his own.?

    The reason it's left like that and not the color of prime is so we can see that he has megatrons fusion cannon arm lol

    I meant Prime having Megatron’s arm — I haven’t read any of this yet, but it was my understanding Megs has been MIA so far, so Prime having his arm means he shows up in some capacity, plus just the fact he’s got his arm attached to his body has all kinds of potential story implications for the end of the first arc.

    Elita honestly just kind of made me roll my eyes, feels like they’ve been trying hard last few years to “make her a thing” — at least it’s not Windblade.

    It's not really a spoiler. All of these things were revealed in issue 4. If you read issue 4, the only thing surprise is Elita.

    No shit it’s Megatron’s arm. :lol  I meant if you’re gonna use his arm, at least paint it to match your own colors.

    That'd actually be a cool development if he personalized it. :D

    I want to see what his alt mode now looks like with a new arm and fusion cannon. I imagine it'll still be his regular semi truck but obviously would be some new kibble hanging off it now!

    "Ratchet, can you either take this fusion cannon off or find another one to put on my left arm? This thing is really throwing off my balance! I don't know how Megatron wasn't constantly tipping over with this ridiculous thing!"

    I don't wanna jump the gun because it's still quite early (though it's tricky cuz I'm actually invested / excited about where the story goes) but frankly I'm tempted to send a message to the writer just to let him know how good a job I think he's doing.

    These little things: showing the Autobots help people, the moments of quiet conversation, plus that scene with the boy in the hospital and Optimus, just... peak dad energy. It's been awhile since I've been able to say "now THIS, this is Optimus Prime", and.. he's doing a good job, they deserve praise.

    Do it! I'm sure they would appreciate it. It would also give them an idea of what the fans are enjoying. Encouraging them to stay this course.

    Jorges work is amazing! Check out "Middlewest," it's a great book by him and Skottie Young with GORGEOUS art. Looking forward to his run
