Personally, I don't think Starscream's ever looked better than how he looks in that last panel. He just looks so brutally determined, like something treacherous is buzzing through his mind like an angry hornets nest, ready to burst at any moment in an explosion of rage and lunacy the likes of which the world has never seen before, all to bring to fruition his final plot to finally become the true King of Decepticons.

But thats just me.

*eye twitches* it looks ok, the animation and drawing was done by the people who drew Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go thats why it looks odd and out of place in the transformers time line

I expect it to be "hella corny", to be honest....I can see it along the lines of a robot-version of Teen Titans..which in itself mildly irritates me....but I am willing to offer it a chance...

Well it's not like thats anything new to Transformers TV.

Can't speak too much for the Beast Era, but every other TF show to date has been hella corny.

If the bots in this series don't actually announce their moves, it's got a leg up already if you ask me.

Did.... did Bumblebee just get kicked by a tiny, human girl?

I still respect you Bumbles! *snicker*

Looking at these comics makes me feel like I am reading an ani-manga, which I find to be pointless to begin with. Still, I agree that Starscream's expression looks hella good. Go get 'em, Starscream!

Didn't read it as it might contain spoilers to the series. But from the looks of those pictures, this series is going to be interesting.

If the humans didn't look so retarded it would be better, but as it stands it doesn't look too bad. Can't wait to see to the pilot.

Suprisingly, Starscream looks better without the smirk.

Which makes him just like G1 Starscream because I hated when Starscream did his ">:," faces.

While I'm not all about the transposing of screenshots into a full length comic (ani-manga?), I may have to get this just because it looks interesting.

So far I'm really digging what I've seen of this series.
