simon seems to be going in a different direction with this iteration of the dynos. i could never see snarl and co just walking away like that.
ok we ALL know this is simon so odds are there'll be cathartic realisation on their part and they'll come back to help grimlock but it was still shocking in a way to see em be so cold, i mean sludge just got fragged in front of the team. i thought payback would be on the agenda big time.
it makes ya ask questions about just what the dynamics of IDWs dinobots team is really like and certainly its surprise me.
my only problem is this is the LAST issue so we wont get to see it explored more unless we get a sequel.
still i'll definetly get it cause i need my furman fix.

These ain't the brainless G1 Dinobots who follow Grimlock no matter what. I was not expecting anything so permanent as a death either, but I guess since the Furmanverse concludes this issue it doesn't matter who survives and who doesnt as they are likely to just reappear as McCarthy sees fit later on, without any explanation.
AHM is looking promising after the tripe of issue #9, art is much improved too.
