#4 is gonna be a good issue, I can feel it. With the way he works, Roche will have this be big, and lead into the bigger conclusion. Although, I predict a death in this one, at least one, maybe more. With Last Stand, he killed 1 in #3 and 3 in #4, so this should be the issue with the body count if he stays true to self :MAXIMAL:

So, this is the "Roadbuster affair". I'm not sure how Fisitron could spin this as anything other than horrific, so I assume he heard a very different version of the story, just like the deaths of Squadron X in Last Stand.

Good to see Mortilus mentioned again; nice bit of world building. Wanna' learn more about any connection to Tarantulas. He could be another "spawn of Mortilus" like Trypticon was.

Do you think they will reveal who that bot that Tarantulas made is now?

I kinda hope, but at the same time, I feel that may be like a last 5 pages of the whole series secret, if it is revealed here :MAXIMAL:

If it's who we all seem to think it is, I could see it either dropping at the end of this issue, or as a quiet epilogue to the final issue.

Four million years of war secrets: imagine the scale of it all! :shock: [It's bad enough here with the 'Panama Papers'.]

Guilt and Violence
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
WEB OF DECEIT! The search for PROWL leads the WRECKERS deep into enemy territory—and that’s where they’re at their best! Unfortunately, with the lives they’ve lived—the pasts they battle to escape—even their best isn’t enough to save everybody.

Image
How the tables (heh) have turned


Story

After the break in the mini-series, we return to the happy escapades of a bunch of loveable misfits, who just happen to wander through the woods and get caught in the web of a spider. Imagine if Nick Roche approached Sins of the Wreckers in that fashion, and then move several steps opposite - darkness falls. Again.

Image
Sorry Guzzle


We move through Tarantulas' web as guilt weaves its tale through the minds and past of Roadbuster, Hubcap, Prowl, Arcee and Springer, with the biggest and the smallest of the lot revealing the beginning of the shared sinful paths, and how they have encountered and become who they are now.

Image
It's... not pretty


On the other side, the team of Wreckers and the Chimeracons, are still working their way through to Tarantulas and his prey, finding a way through the Noisemaze, finding their way through the mess that Prowl has landed everyone into. And they're fairly straightforward about it. Wrecker style.

Image
Prowl, always the charmer


There is also - as is to be expected by now - some seriously dark humour in the book, almost a breather in between the even darker actions and dialogue taking place. But be ready for another big, dense, heavy read (in a good way, ultimately, but heavy nonetheless), as issue #4 is where Roche falls into the rabbit hole. More thoughts on this below.

Art

As expected, the darkness in the story crawls and creeps not only into the linework, where the organic and the mechanical blend in a really intriguing fashion - if not grotesquely so - but also into the panel composition, with a lot of blank and black spaces, filled yes with dialogue, but also with ominous pauses...

Image
All together now!


Josh Burcham and Joana Lafuente's colours are wonderfully attuned to the linework provided, and we get some seriously murky, shadowy, closed and/or trippy, depending on the scene, backgrounds to accompany the story being told - or the plans being set in motion. From the past to the present, via the Noisemaze, we see the colourists' skills at full power.

Image
Whheeeeeee...


As for the lettering, this issue allows for some of the most varied and appreciated work from Tom B. Long, given free rein over a number of techniques, from fading, to fonts, to sizing - the result is an integral part of both story and visuals, without which it might not work the same. On he cover front, the main Roadbuster narrative is taken on by Roche and Burcham, with the latter also playing with Prowl playing with lives (Kup in particular), and Jack Lawrence brings us the new, complete team of Wreckers in the thumbnailed variant.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Other readers have pointed out how, much like Roberts in recent MTMTE issues, there are some parallels here in SOTW with the previous Wrecker-centric volume. While that is undoubtedly true, it is also the case that Roche has taken the issues of guilt and violence very much to their limit, here. The issue may not be an easy read for some, as it is as graphic as it is dense, physically and mentally for the characters, and the latter for the readers too.

Image


The way in which Roche, Burcham, Lafuente, and Long collaborate on the same story shows a level of passion and understanding of the different dynamics, between characters, between creators, between book and readers, that can only end up bringing about a book like this. The one concern, perhaps, is about the pacing - the build-up is so strong, the development so good, that it feels like this could've been the end of the story. How will next month rack up?

Ok, this is just getting ridiculous. Who thought of the great idea that was "kill all the actually interesting characters and leave every predictable character alive"? I can literally predict what the remaining characters will do. Impactor and Guzzle will murder more interesting characters, Kup and Springer will be the only interesting characters left, Prowl will do some stupid treachery shit, and Tarantulas will be a dick to everyone.

I don't know what is about this series but it's just not really amazing to me anymore. I don't hate it, I like it but 'the wow factor' isn't there. I don't want to blame the 2 month delay or the fact we know prowl comes out fine in this and that Arcee and Kup are fine as well but it's just kind of a forgettable story and comic. I get the stakes are high but we know how this ends in the larger picture of things. Prowl doesn't change by the end of this. He's not nicks character anymore, he's john's. Maybe that's it.

It's like I've said before, this is not the series everyone really wanted as a sequel to LSOTW. I think it's a good story and I do enjoy it but I find myself asking "is this story relevant in the current era of transformers comics that we're getting because it's a story doesn't matter if it happened or not because other bigger things are happening in James and Johns books"

I dunno. I like this series. I like how they are incorporating different transformers and themes into this one universe and in a way that makes since. I stoked on the beast modes now because they make a lot more since. I like what is going on but I do have to agree that I wish we didn't already know these characters fates.

For whatever reason it wasn't on iBooks, I just went and picked it up on comixology.

I got to agree with randomhero here. If this story was given to us before RID and MTMTE it would be great. But we have a higher quality of tf comics out now and this just doesn't make the cut.
Every character besides tidal wave has the same boring personality and make the same bad jokes. Hi, I'm angry and sarcastic. Me too. Me too.
Im just disappointed to see the wreckers story reduced to this.

I haven't read the rest of the content of this thread, but I'm just going to agree with this comment. I was really hoping for something on par with the Last Stand of the Wreckers story, and Sins has been a let down for me. I don't have any investment in the Wreckers, and I generally think they are a really overhyped bunch, but Last Stand was an excellent story, so I was hopeful that there would have been more of that here, and I haven't found it. I'd love to see there be some kind of penalty for Prowl being this really terrible, manipulative guy, but there isn't, and I'm going to go out on a limb here and say there won't be at the end of this series either. Most of the characters in his feel like another round of "hey!! It's that guy!! Cool!" and that is crappy.
I do like Tidal Wave though.

Calling it now: What ever Tarantulas did to Verity is going to turn her into an animorph.

We've seen some non-TV Beast Wars characters in this story, so what not? :KREMZEEK:
