“We appear to have an American F-22 Raptor, being shot at by some kind of rally vehicle. And a police patrol car, also American... under attack from a space shuttle?”


I dunno why, but this line is so corny, it's good.

Mmmm. Particularly with the panel and next couple of lines. Most TF battles, even taking into account some effort at disguise, would confuse the hell out of most onlookers.

It's just a short break in the whole scramble/chase/fight.

Just finished reading it, check out page 11 for a liitle nod to the site. And before anyone else mentions it, it could be for the Japanese continuity homeworld. Either way, I always like stuff like that in comics, the easter eggs if you will.

NOt a big fan of Hot Rod's alt mode, I'm sure it will change soon enough, but I did catch the Seibs, and BT references...

Page 21, is that the Roller pic that Counterpunch was referring to, cause that was sweet! 8)

Nope. Page 21 shows the chopshop with a sticker attached to the window. Said sticker has the date of a certain Summer movie on it...

It's orange and not a brick, anyway.

Yeah, I'm sure it'll be Earth modes all round in due course.

Missed the Seibs reference. Gonna have to have another look through. I am glad HotRod lost that huge chin he had in his spotlight. Looking forward to the next issue.
