Facsinating.

I may end up buying my first Transformer comic series because of that

Me too.

This'll probably get me into comics actually. Can't wait for it.

The first few pages were had me a bit skeptical, but by the end of it now I can't wait for the comic. Looks fantastic.
SPOILER! (select to read)
At first I was a little curious why Razorbeast was on the Predacons side.

I like how this could work with Beast Wars 2 and Beast Wars Neo (at least, less childish versions of those two series). I note Guiledart and Dead End among the Predacons cameoed during Magamtron's rally.

Mmm, the attention to detail with giving characters Cybertronian modes (something Don excels at) is really something...

If you read all twelve pages, you'd know why.

Don't worry, you can probably follow most of what's going on by looking at the pictures...

Nice, very nice. The art looks great, and the what we've seen of the story looks prety interesting. I'm definitly going to be picking this one up.

Definitely waiting for this miniseries more than "Infiltration" now. Lots of easter eggs like usually from Figueroa, but on the back ground, not taking attention from the story. Clear contrast between mechanical bots on Cybertron and partly organic bots on Earth. Furman sets up the story well. Very promising.

Pleasantly surprised by cybertronian modes, hopefully those character designs won't be saved for the TPB.

The art is as wonderful as we'd expect from Don, and apart from the "Hop to it" joke Furman seems to have refound his mojo with the script (though I'd say he's just watched the Times Arrow two parter from The Next Generation).

I'd say anyone new to Beast Wars will get a fairly good oviewview of the necessary back story as well, which is good. Though it says a lot about the complexity of the TV shows plots that it takes three pages of a charecter talking to the audience just to get the basics across...

It looks like a great story *_*

I suppose that Lio Convoy makes only a guest appearance (they don't even mention his name).
Doesn't the "Maximal Imperium" stuff sound a little arrogant?
