I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Setting up Revolution, which... boo. I really despise Revolution.
Then again, the art was even better than I expected: this artist tends to go very tight, very dark, and the lightness was like a breath of fresh air. He doesn't completely loosen up, but he loosens up enough that I found I was relieved. Sometimes too much of his art can make me tense up, and it wasn't the case here.
As for the storyline: it sets up another epic power struggle, one I'm incredibly interested in seeing play out eventually. I fear it'll happen in Optimus Prime - he has his own series now - which I'm not that interested in - or wasn't until I ended up reading this issue.
Loved most of it, but hated the aspects that tied into Revolution, enough so that I knocked off one star.
Now to decide if I'm gonna play with the Prime series or not... hmm....
I also don't have any more Transformers for at least a month, which makes me sad :(
