Bit distanced since I'm not really feeling "season 2" yet. Instantly fell in love with MTMTE 1, could tell that something new and exciting was coming up...and two issues in here, I ain't feeling it that much.
Part of that is because it feels and reads as if Megatron was totally forced on as an Autobot to Roberts, and he's jumping through hooves to establish why he was dumped on his book. Almost the entire three parter [I'm assuming 30 will be the last chapter in this saga] reads as an insert. I'm of the opinion that instead, or surplus to Windblade, we could have a proper 3-4 parter "Trial of Megatron" or something, with full on details and accounts and whatnot, and use these issues of MTMTE to focus on something else, instead of having a pseudo mystery of "how did Megatron get around all that and became captain of a crew of autobots that do not trust him at all? and what did Rodimus have to say about that?"
Despite all that, I rather like Megatron the benevolent leader. It's a fresh take, although they could have just as easily picked him up as a stray from exile or something instead of this convoluted storyline.
I have a feeling that Swerve's "old injury" that the entire fandom seems to ignore [he even told Drift off in issue 13 about not touching him below the shoulder] might be that nasty cut he got in SL: Hoist. Could be wrong.
Liking Nightbeat and Chromedome, feels as if Roberts is trying to "Sherlock" them both. Nightbeat the quirky but brilliant Sherlock and Chromedome as the initially passive sidekick Dr Watson who when they first team up together is lost, mentally and spiritually. I don't think Rewind will come back, it would greatly cheapen S1 as a whole. Because if he ain't really dead, despite the entire carnage and mayhem, S1 would have really just killed Pipes and a bunch of background characters, giving the free pass to Ratchet, Magnus, Rewind, Whirl and Rung.
Riptide appears to be a fresh take on the "reporter" angle on the LL, and so far nothing more. Very indifferent about Nautica.
Not going to comment on the whole coffin thing, as again, Roberts stating that almost none of the "message" happened in S1 cheapened the entire message. Kind of lost its impact if, instead of the LL being lost for years with no way of contacting them, they came back, sat around for six months, and THEN left again and those occurrences happened.
