At this point I'm terribly tired of prequel stories when one character uncovers something that "will change anything".

Newsflash; it's transformers. NOTHING changes. Megatron wanted war before Autocracy, Megatron wanted war at Autocracy, Megatron was at war from Infiltration 0 to ongoing 30.

So no, nothing Megatron ever finds out in the past "changes" ANYTHING. The "change everything" motto could be used at Chaos Theory, where he goes from peaceful poet\miner to sociopathic megalomaniac.

Everything else has pretty much stayed the same since 1984.

Would be pretty fresh if Megatron found Jesus.

You know, for a few wild years.

At this point, we've seen everything we can imagine to see for both Megs and Prime.

They've been good, they've been bad, they've been missing, they've been fighting, they've been talking, they're being united against common foes, they've been joking together...

I still like Megatron more though.

Who's that on the cover? At first glance it looks like Prowl, then there's claws and a...shield\icicle? I can't tell.

Oh, and I'm getting tired of the Dinobots. I only like Grimlock either way, but does anybody else feel SUFFOCATED from dinobot-induced mania since FOC? They're EVERYWHERE.

This is basically the sequel to autocracy, isn't it? Colour me disinterested. prequels work as occasional stories in a larger framework I.e when Roberts does them.

Everywhere but the films, amusingly. Which is the only way they would help sell comics.

A sequel to Autrocracy. No thanks. On the strength of what I seem to remember being good reviews I bought Autocracy. I found it to be unreadable and a complete waste of money. I couldn't even finish it that's how poor it was.

So i won't be picking this up! Heh!

I just had a thought. They should have spelled this with a c and made it a terribly clever name for one of the metrotitan stories they're so obsessed with at the moment.
