This is the third issue dealing with the aftermath of Optimus Prime's opening story arc. You'd think that would give the waiting feeling of the pre-Dark Cybertron "holding pattern" of Robots in Disguise, but I don't get that at all. It helps that each issue has had its own point of focus. And this issue focuses on Sideswipe, and Arcee, and to a lesser degree Sideswipe's brother Sunstreaker. Sideswipe's is a voice we haven't heard in the comic in a good while due to his injury, and getting a good examination of him and his perspective is refreshing. What does a person who thinks in terms of "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys" do when a war is over? How do you change their mind? How do they move forward, or at least make peace with peace? This is one of those issues where I want to spoil as little as possible, but the themes it deals with are interesting and worthwhile ones and addressed in a pretty compelling way. For as long as there's war there'll be important things to say about war and what it does to people, and this is one of the greatest strengths of a Transformers comic written with adults in mind.
The color! The detail! The odd angle to put us all as off-balance as Sideswipe is! This comic looks so good.
