Wooooooooooo. This is great. Although 'Galactic Positioning System' is kind of nonsensical. It's still a globe, Prime!

They should pay Roche all of the money to keep him on board. Those ship designs alone should be case enough.

Dare I say it, but that is some of Roches best work. And really nicely coloured too. Pity he cant stay on for all of the new ongoing.

Anyway, must pick up the previous issue. Forgot all about it. That might mean 2 comics in one visit. Sad to say, but I'm a little bit giddy

Loves a bit of Manganese mountains me, and Prime with his cutting remarks; "I remember you ran". Meow!

Interesting. Seems a fair jumping-on point, although might go back and look for the story before it when I get chance.

The backstory is ok ('Chaos' I think its called). I kind of flipped through it at Forbidden Planet. I like it for the inclusion of background characters and its referencing the Kimia science facility.

I'm going to order the Chaos TPB thing from Amazon because it's got the Roberts two-parter of Prime and Megatron. I'm so impressed at the depiction of Prime as a guy who gets things done and takes no certain amount of ****. Its such a refreshing change to Mr. Doubtful about everything Prime I've been brought up with (apart from kick-ass Prime in 'Arrival from Cybertron' and his ass-kicking turn in the '86 movie, decking everyone against a wondersome Stan Bush track).

I love modern day Prime.
