I would love it if Ramos started doing some Transformers comics. He is one of my top fav comic artist. Sweet looking Optimus he drew here.

Eh, not a fan. I didn't like his work on Spider-Man and Wolverine comics either. Just not into his style at all.
It's weird how there's all that light behind them like it's supposed to be all dynamic and kinetic looking but the poses are all really stiff and dull.

War for the Core! Deep within Cybertron, the ultimate weapon to kill all Transformers is about to be activated! Meanwhile, Elita One plans to stop the weapon—by killing every human on Cybertron! Either way, looks like some species on Cybertron is going down unless Optimus Prime and Scarlett can save the day…[/quote]

Yes! There they are! With the final issue coming out after First Strike started, I was worried about the fate Revolutionaries. Now I'm curious to see what adventures they're gonna get to go on.

Saying yes seems like an understatement. :lol:

Those two carry the series, this issue, and the entire shared universe.

Revolutionaries is absolutely the best thing to come out of the shared universe so far, and a big reason for that is Action Man and Kup. If you were on the fence I can't recommend it enough :)

Wait, wraiths can't possess inorganic material? Then what about them possessing Cybertronians over in Rom vs Transformers?

Nothing truer has been said. There is a reason Kup's titans return toy should have had the head named "Action Man" or "Ian". I renamed him Action Man, this is the best shared universe pairing, no doubt :D

Possession implies being able to control the host. What happened in ROM Vs TF was not that.
