    So will this be more Lord of the Rings or Conan the Barbarian, but with Grimlock?

    At first I saw the cover with Grimlock and the human and was like "Oh..."

    But then I saw it's Grimlock in a DND setting and I was like "Oh~"

    Wait, Padilla's drawing it? Fuck. No.

    as i said in announcement discussion, i would love if they incorporated that premise from g1 season 3 ep where they go to a fantasy world where an insane quintesson was ruling in disguise as a wizard.

    I've liked what I've read of Orlando's work, so I'll give it a shot.

    If there was any Transformer who could pull this off, it'd be Grimlock. Color me interested.

    This has so much potential. So many different ways to take this. Hopefully we get some of the other dinobots, or I'd love to see some predacons in this.

    What's wrong with him? I think his art's pretty good.

    This does sound interesting. Think I'll check this out.

    I actually took a look back and it's not as bad as I remember it being. Could be I was comparing it at the time to Milne or Roche, but I do remember thinking Rage of the Dinobots had particularly bad art when it came out. Spotlight Hoist could have looked better, but for this kind of comic I think it could work.

    So this book came out today. Not sure if I like it. I can't tell if it's supposed to fit into the larger ongoing continuity for sure, but I'm leaning towards NO. Grimlock knows what humans are, and Optimus looks nothing like the present inner-robot-of-WFC-Seige-Leader-Galaxy Optimus that they've stuck with since the get-go.

    @Wizardofcozz , looks like your avatar pic is the main villain, and @supernova222 totally called it on the plot being homage to Madman's Paradise.

    Sadly, no appearance of any Quintessons... yet. I meant more that they are lifting the setting and basic plot from that G1 episode. If my reading of the wiki page about it is correct, the Golden One on the cartoon was a good guy. This one in the comic is being painted as the villain. So I don't know if they're gonna change other stuff too, we might not see any Quints.

    Sure seems that way. But we literally only see Grimlock, Optimus, and the other Dinobots(in non-speaking background roles, but with dinosaur alt-modes) on Cybertron before Grimlock gets transported away to be the sole bot on Menonia, so who knows. He does instantly recognizes the inhabitants as "Human", so there's implied background there.

    He's gonna need to fight a not-so-jolly green giant for that title...

    You know, they can always merge timelines à la 'Hearts of Steel - Revolutionaries' if they want.

    Another one-off.
    Unless Optimus has already been to Earth, other dimensions, and Grimlock has been introduced without anyone knowing.
