This is a comic commissioned by Hasbro to showcase a Hoist toy. I guess it's too much to ask that he-

1) tow a wrecked Autobot

2) patch him up

or

3) fight some REAL Decepticons?

It was a fun fluffy issue for me. Not as good as SL:Trailbreaker imo, but still fun. Swerve is so lovable in this. He's such a little trooper. I'm glad Sunstreaker finally got some comic time but I can't say it really did much for him. Hopefully in future he will be featured more. The ending kind of confused me at first. It took me a few seconds to understand what was going on but once I did I really liked it. Very smart of Hoist.

If I had to point out a negative with this issue it's that after reading it I still really don't know Hoist any better. Trailbreaker's issue took a character I didn't know much about and made me care. This issue did not do that for me with Hoist. He's just kinda there (maybe that's the point?).

The art is much more solid than MTMTE #16. no complaints there.

All in all an enjoyable read :)

Atleast it's better than jaAm :P

I'm not entirely sure that this was commissioned, I was just thinking they threw these things in here, much like how GiJoe/Star Wars and other toy companies were doing toy/comic packs.

And as much as I would love to see Autobots and Decepticons beating the crap out of each other, the way Ongoing had steered the ship, the bots and cons have really been holding hands for the past few years until the last few issues of RID.
