Howdy folks! Just read through the Botcon comic, which continues the timelines saga that is being presented in the club magazine bi-monthly.

Written by Forrest Lee

Shown in the picture is the Alex Milne cover and the Target Exclusive Convention Pack

It reads a little out of place. Last club mag, we had the Autobots getting ready to go toe to toe with Devastator. For those that read the five page preview, you know that they have returned from it, and Rodimus (Hot Rod) is gravely injured.

S P O I L E R S...S Y N O P S I S...

____________________________________________________________

Here's some other information which would be considered spoiling:

Characters:

Bots: Prime, Bumblebee, Mirage, Rodimus, Magnus, Grimlock, Snarl, Swoop, Elita One, Springer, Huffer, Strongarm

Cons: Megatron, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Ramjet, Thrust, Dirge, Dreadwind, Weirdwolf, Soundwave, Ravage

Other: Bugbite

After a Devastator induced devastation of the Earth bound bots, Prime needs more help and Magnus, Springer, Elita One, Huffer, Swoop, Snarl and Strongarm show up to give it to him.

Meanwhile, Bugbite plots revenge against all Transformers, as he implants 'cerebro shell' based control devices in the seekers, and Starscream, and attempts a coup of Megatron, and all the Cons. His goal is the destruction of all Transformers, because he is from another time and place, where he is now the lone survivor.

Not for long though, as Megatron pounds him. The Autobots rescue Mirage (who used his invisibility to spy on the Cons, but then is captured and brought to Megatron by Bugbite and his forces).

The Autobots get out intact and wholly unharmed (except Mirage and Rodimus), but Decepticon casualties are really high, and the Autobots did nothing to them really, but free Mirage and jam and destroy the cerebro technology.

_____________________________________________________________

It's a good read, and uses some characters that have been gone for too long. Things like 'master partners are brought up as very appropriate plot points, and why there is no longer binary bonded partners to Weirdwolf, and Dreadwind.

Elita One is portrayed as a very capable warrior and spy, and there is nary an interaction between her and Optimus, for good or ill...

My favorite thing about the cover? Action Master Snarl. I have a soft spot for the AMs.
