    Wait so did they bring Jetfire back or did they just rebuild him to use as transport?
    Also YO!  I freaking love this Shockwave already.

    Shockwave was never a big deal in the original cartoon, but in every comic universe he’s ever been featured in he’s arguably an even bigger problem than Megatron. And actually that kind of is an arguable at this point. He really was a bigger threat than Megatron in marvel, and dream wave, and an ID W one. And an ID W-2 he was directly responsible for starting the actual war even more than Megatron was. He was the one making the calls that actually made the spiral out of control, in part because he just likes chaos

    Fuck. Why did I read this? It’s going to be a long month. This arc is not slowing down one bit.

    WOW, Shockwave is menacing. Wonder how this is all going to play out. Certainly seems like we might have an Autobot death... or perhaps Elita and Ultra Magnus (or whoever she saved) will come through as Autobot backup.

    This series is so exciting!

    That\'s probably because he got only one eye, so Hasbro makes him a big bad guy.

    Would be hilarious if cliffjumper just cheap shots shockwave and blasts him in the eye sending him back into the portal

    I wonder if the "brother" thing is a figure of speech or a reference to Scioli's Transformers vs G.I. Joe actually having Soundwave and Shockwave be brothers.

    In this continuity, the Decepticons and Autobots view their comrades as "brothers" (and "sister" for Arcee), so it's more of a brothers-in-arms thing

    He's back but in compromised shape. Guess he was too good of a character to completely let go this early.

    While I'm not a big fan of character revivals, I do admit it's honestly pretty logical for Transformers. Given them dying would require the Spark to pass on or be extinguished.
    Now that I think about it, that's kinda Toy Story logic.

    Read it already.

    I'm not usually a fan of a human being able to hold their own against a TF--let alone Megatron--but I'll allow it as Golobulus is a metahuman and Megs was already severely damaged and half blind and his ego was in high gear as he felt no human should be able to fight him.

    That said, I really want to see when Megs, Soundwave, and Starscream get back together. Starscream owes Soundwave an ass-whupping and Megatron will most assuredly come for Screamer's head for what he pulled.

    Optimus being the reason for his missing arm was metal.

    I dig Hot Rod's depiction snd the Joes are off to a solid start.

    Same, man.

    I'm just now realizing how much I actually love this series and how excited I am for these issues. I love IDW2, the only other major TF comic continuity that I collected as it came out, but I wasn't as excited about that series' issues as I have been for these. I was quite literally dying to read the FCBD special and I can't wait for issue 9 so I can see what happens after Shockwave arrives. There's just something about the whole "Sunbow-but-deeper" style of the story that's really interesting and makes it fun to read. (Plus, I'm one of those people that loves character deaths, so, you know... give me more bloodshed, DWJ.)

    I think what helps is that the characters are sharing a lot of traits with their Sunbow counterparts. A lot of similar things miss so much of the traits that aren't instantly "edgy and mature" in the stereotypical sense.
    Optimus Prime can be stoic? Sure, that's all he is. Optimus can make a mistake? Let's make that a huge plot thread. Optimus could be the bad guy? Let's make him aggressive.
    Same can apply to other characters in similar stories. Skybound understands these characters so well, especially Optimus. The bot who doesn't want to make hard choices when it hurts someone else, but still will give his own life to protect even a single other life. A man who is willing to give it all up for his family. Not just the wise and emotionless leader (*cough* Prime *cough*) or the edgy "role model" (like the Bay movies).
