I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
This is some great character work between Megatron and Starscream; this may be Phase 1, but the quality feels like Phase 2. The art is just top notch and the writing is blowing me away: new, interesting ideas (Frenzy) and a twist on Starscream and Megatron like this that falls in line with the best continuities, but... this. Man, this is a powerful scene right here. Just gorgeous. Also, really nice to see the Decepticons let off the leash. As far as I understand, this whole series was pitched as 'what if Megatron didn't hold back at all?'
And it's brilliant.
