I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Or, y'know, Dynobots.
This was an excellent graphic novel, which reminded me why I love this continuity and have since before the Barber/Roberts era. It was Furman at his best, and while I've liked a lot of his work, it's mostly when it isn't human-centric.
This was that. Non-human centric. Even Hunter, who was Sunstreaker's Headmaster, had very little panel time. And what time he did have was tied into Skorponok's plans for the Dynobots.
This had everything I remember Furman being so good with: the twists, the turns, the characterization that sharpened when he focused solely on the Cybertronian aspect. And the conclusion is as heart wrenching as I remember. Amazing, amazing, amazing!
It also helps that Hot Rod gets totaled, because that's always hilarious.
