In my last review of this series, I mentioned how in one simple issue, Roberts was able to make me care about a ragtag group of former Decepticons (& Grimlock) in less than 20 pages only to have one hell of a final page cliffhanger. Well, this issue has come and gone and I can only say that Roberts, in the short time I’ve been reading this series, has surprised me once again with a great resolution to the previous issues cliffhanger and making me care even more for the Scavengers.


As the issue begins, Scorponok stands victorious over a handcuffed, suddenly verbose, Grimlock as he begins to explain what his plan is for the Magnificence - as villains are wont to do. However, this does not last too long as they get interrupted by, well, that would be a spoiler.


Let’s just say, this interruption leads to a reversal of fortunes for Grimlock and Scorponok, as it is now Scorponok who is restrained by Grimlock. From there, we get the explanation of Scorponok’s (evil) plan. This plan, which I won’t spoil here, is quite involved, but would also permits Cybertronians to do something that they weren’t previously able to do. It’s an interesting plan, and from what I remember of Scorponok, exactly what he would come up with.


Cahill and Pitre-Durocher’s art continues to be fantastic and continues to be enhanced by the amazing colors of Lafuente. This art team does a wonderful job of conveying the personalities of each individual Transformer throughout the issue, something that isn’t always easy when your main protagonists and antagonists are giant-sized robots.
