Looks pretty good though I couldn't get the gist of what was going on from those few pages. Looking forward to seeing the rest.

Think it wins the "Lets see how many bots we can throw in on the first few pages" award. ;)

Badass. I would buy this comic. This small preview gave me a nice taste and left me wanting to read more. The art looks very nice. Hope there is actually more than just these 4 pages.

That was frickin intense. lol. I'm looking forward to it. Plus it's nice to see that it takes place after the series finale it seems!

From the cover and the little we got, I'd say Rodimus is going to hire Lockdown and then go all Liam Neeson on Team Chaar. A little dark for Rodimus, but an interesting concept. And more Animated universe stories aren't bad at all!

Very cool!

The only thing I'd like to see different? First Aid's face isn't very Animated-y. :)

Very nice. A seamless tie to the series is always appreciated and I really like the art. It's a bit darker than usual TFA fair, but it has a dark grittiness that follows how Rodimus is feeling.

I kinda like the reinventing of the animated universe to a "darkest" or less childish art, the shadows and claroscuro really fit on the tone at least the appetizer we get to see here. Pretty good job, looking forward to see it concluded... pretty nice this is art fiction too.

Very, very nice!

Love Animated Rodimus.

Only think I don't like is the inclusion of Lockdown. Don't like stereotypical bounty hunters and I hate TF's that don't have the traditional helmet look like Lockdown and Armada Scavenger. But then I also hate TF's with facial hair.

But anywho, great preview!

Awesome, but maybe I just have trouble following a comic I have to click through instead of physical paper. The last page just lost me. At the risk of asking someone to post a potential spoiler, what was the orange thing supposed to be/mean?

Still, I'd love to see more from these guys. Or maybe this will get Hasbro/IDW to greenlight some official TFA continuations?

Hi -- I'm Shaun Flaherty, the writer. Thanks for reading!

The "orange thing" is intended to be Lockdown's ship, the Death's Head. Sorry for the confusion. Carry on.
