The second part to this current story arc from IDW Publishing, this is Transformers #35.
“Sea of Rust,” part two! Termagax has many secrets–information that could forever tip the scales in the favor of the Autobots or the Decepticons. As the Decepticons close in, she allows Optimus Prime and the two other Autobots she respects into her inner sanctum to share her knowledge. But will the Autobots be able to act on it before the Decepticons start their siege? And where does Skywarp factor into the equation?Brian Ruckley (Author) Anna Malkova (Artist) Juan Samu (Cover Artist)
This was a full-on issue. With the talking underway, with the chance of the enigma of combination being the prize, there is a raging battle going on outside.
It works out really well, and this is what we’ve come to expect from Transformers. The political side is always excellent, but sometimes it comes to a flat out battle.
This issue finishes off the clones of the Incepticons well, with Skylinx being the deciding factor. Then we are onto the full battle.
The lines are drawn up well, with some good commentary from the Decepticons and the Autobots. There is some arguments in the ranks with SixShot, but he deals with it well and made me smile with his reaction. The Autobots are a lot more professional here.
Then there is Skywarp – the spoiler of the story, with him re-introducing himself to Shockwave. Shockwave’s reaction was interesting, as was his comments. The history between them is well done, and I like to see where this side is going.
The battle goes on, and the tides may change more than once…
