And in just these few preview pages, Steeljaw proves just how competent, wise, and well-learned a leader he is. Many a Decepticon leader could learn a thing or two from him.

Don't forget the deceit is still there, of course.

According to the online preview of the IDW Issue #6 of the RID comics, Thunderhoof re-appeared in the comics, meaning that he is schedule to return in season 2, as issues 5 and 6 took place after season 1. When he does, expect him to use his machine gun, as this is shown on the toy itself. If that is true, this might also seems very likely for other captured Decepticons to return for season 2, including Quillfire, Springload, Clampdown, and many others. In your own words does this mark the return of the captured Cons for season 2? Will Steeljaw form an army in Season 2 this time for sure? :CON:

Or he and the rest of the rereleased Decepticons will be captured again by the end of the issue so it doesn't create a continuity error.

If anything, this shows that Steeljaw may not release all the prisoners in season 2 if he ever would as he has trust issues following Megatronus. But that's if the cartoon ran following events from the comic, so yeah. Just a thought though :BOT:

Well, you saw what Steeljaw, did to Kickback, right? He has a deep hatred for bugs. Does that mean that won't release Pseudo and Zizza? Luckily, Kickback got away. If he is scared of bugs, then why he hired Clampdown in the first place? Clampdown in a crustacean. Pseudo, Kickback, and Zizza are insects. Chop Shop is a spider. Together, these animals are arthropods. So does that mean that Steeljaw hates all arthropods in general? If so, which ones? :CON:

I really think you're way overthinking the animalistic part of this. they just look like that, they really haven't shown anything to indicate hatred towards a particular type, like constructed cold guys in IDW. I just mentioned how Steeljaw is being smarter and more cautious with his force. loyalty is what he needs. :BOT:

End of the Road
Spoiler-freeish


Synopsis
VEHICONS AMOK! When the DECEPTICON called STEELJAW stumbles upon three lost VEHICONS, he convinces them he’s on a mission from MEGATRON—a deception that puts them on a collision course with BUMBLEBEE and company!

Story
Well here we are, end of the road for the RiD IDW comic. And let's just say things did not go quietly. Ever wanted some of your old plot threads from Prime answered? Well this seemingly answers a few, and in a way that I am cool with. And I am very appreciative of the answers that it gave. The biggest thing being we finally have some canonical ending to some old threads!

Image
Rematch!!


And then there was the final battle, which really was short unfortunately, but with this story arc clearly intended to last at least 2 more issues, they had no choice. And they did a good job for what they were given. I give a well done to the team for that. I wish there would have been those extra issues, but I still enjoyed the ride.

Image
Always ends with a KA-FOOOM!


Art

Artwork and colors are as always done by the marvelous Priscilla Tramontano, and she does not disappoint in the finale. Beautiful lines and awesome scenery make up this issue as we travel through a scrap yard, several caves, and a mine. I have come to love this art, and I will miss it. The art perfectly fits the comic that you hold in your hands.

Image
Who would have thought you'd ever see a Crab-bot using a drill?


Lettering is done by our old friend Tom B. Long, and he delivers great lettering that matches up with the artwork and with the action within. He never fails to disappoint and I for one am very happy to have him around.

Thoughts (spoilerish ahead)

It Never Ends....


Well here we are, and there it goes. End of the road, and for such a fun loving not overly serious comic, I am sad to see it go. In Transformers, it felt like that Sunday comic page you would read, where you got some life lessons and a lot of laughs. And I am a lover of Sunday comics. This was enjoyable and a great run, and I wish all of you would take the time to read through the stories. They may only be 7 in number (there is issue 0!) but they are a fun time. And they show that you can have a goofy cast in a fun comic that makes for some great stories.

I recommend reading this and its predecessors, and while I cannot give it a full score simply due to trying to do too much in too little space, I can tell you this is awesome and go find it.
