    My bad. I completely forgot about him being in RID and Cyberverse. Huh, I didn't know he had a Generations' toy.

    I had that toy. I want a new version of it in Earthrise or something, since while Drift took a bit to gel in the fandom, that toy was AMAZING.

    Meanwhile, please let Bumblebee plant the seeds for Deadlock to become Drift.

    A few pictures showing the bots that were referenced, or have no names as of yet (in this issue):

    More than anything else, it was Nightbeat's cameo that made me aware of the whole cops/politicians thing. Nightbeat's whole defining thing is being a P.I., and while a cop is not an unrelated role, there's a huge difference in terms of the relationship with authority.

    I don't want to spend too much time theorycrafting other stories and timelines, but I can't help but think about much fresher it would have been for the whole 'Brainstorm murder >>>>> civil war!' plotline to begin from the point of view of a gumshoe investigating a case that the cops are too officious to solve, then getting gradually entangled in the web of politics and crime that eventually leads to armed conflict. You could still have Autobot cops - the gumshoe character would pal around with them, exchange evidence and so on, maybe even have an old buddy on the force - but you'd also get visits to dive bars and research facilities, interviews with Brainstorm's colleagues etc., giving us a bit more insight into the make-up of Cybertronian society.

    You know, Elita-1's design has been nagging at me; I don't think it looks good and that's no matter which artist is having a go at drawing it.

    Is Orion the only one who suspects something is up with Megatron himself? I’ve noticed that the citizens aren’t too happy with him, but no one has come out and suggested that he’s behind everything. The security officers haven’t tried to pull up info on him. Froid didn’t flag him for possible troubles in the past. I wonder if he’ll bring it up with Sentinel now that things are going south.

    No offense to the other artist, but having your work published together in the same book with Alex Milne's...is not a good look.

    I think just by being the leader of the Ascenticons he's under suspicion. I don't think it will matter much to the Autobots in the end whether they can dig up dirt on Megatron or not because just finding Ascenticon and Rise connections alone would probably be enough to declare him an accomplice in all this.

    I know this is probably just me, but I'm really jazzed that Elita looks like a woman again. Call me a caveman, but I've always liked the Amazon Warrior Woman look as opposed to Cotton Hill's butch sister.

    True. Gotta say, I’m starting to warm up to this Megatron a little bit more. His behavior is still baffling at times but I like how he’s not the main villain in control of everything. He’s a bit of an overzealous idiot who made poorly thought out political decisions and now he’s stumbling his way through the consequences.

    Nice mirror to IDW1 with Bumblebee wearing a Decepticon Insignia considering it was Bumblebees Autobot insignia that Megatron wore.
    Milne. I could take this book a whole lot better with his art. Sorry, the other artist is not only too jarring sharing the page count with Milne, but as I’ve shared all along, the art has simply just not been good. Can we just, bring back Milne? (After he recovers of course).

    This book is the definition of a slow burn... some issues I like it more than others. This issue, I liked, because we're getting some forward momentum on it all.

    I can't help but notice that Springer and Sideswipe are drawn with such a degree of toy accuracy they've got their 5mm holes...

    And is it just me, or does Bee look a bit like the recently revealed Earthrise Cliffjumper, in terms of overall bodyshape? Especially the chest and feet (granted, that's also all classic 'bee stuff)

    I've been avoiding these new series until the reviews have something better to say then just "meh"... but I make an exception for Alex Milne's artwork. Bought this issue, loved his pages. I'd buy any book with his work in it.

    He's practically stumbling through a field of landmines at this point. More and more holes are being poked into the Ascenticon facade.

    Given how the inital series summary writeup/series pitch was, that's what I was expecting tbh. Blade Runner/Noir but with Transformers on Cybertron.

    Before anyone gets excited, given past precedent (and I haven’t read the issue)...how many of the above pages were drawn by Milne?
