The Rundown: Intrigue and mistrust continue to plague the citizens of Cybertron and the factions vying for control are heading towards a destructive conflict.

Two figures are pulling cables beneath a war memorial and they attacked Cyclonus to keep him away. They didn’t count on the war hero to fight back and certainly didn’t expect him to hold his own against two heavily armed assailants. At the same time, Megatron goes to visit a former mentor to make sure that she stays out of what he has planned and Bumblebee finds out the price of his new allegiance.

As Prowl tries to understand what is driving the opposition, Cyclonus crashes the gathering literally and figuratively with a dire warning for the Autobots.

The Story: Brian Ruckley has continued to move this story in some interesting directions and the action in the story is fantastic. All of the story elements are coming together well while still leaving enough mystery involved to keep the reader engaged and interested in where the story is going.

The Art: Anna Malkova, Angel Hernandez and Beth McGuire-Smith deliver some stunning art in this issue. Everything from the characters to the detailed backgrounds look great.
