A surprisingly emotive expression, considering it's a cartoon robot. I likes it.

A nice sketch. Khanna has also uploaded a pic of a second variant cover to his Deviant Art page of wfc style prowl.

This does nothing but strengthern my view that Khanna is only good for covers and portraits.

His actual comic work is poor in comparison, I dont know why botcon keep using him.

Read it yesterday night.

I have to say, I am not sure I like the way things are set up for the characters in RID.

Prowl is manipulating his fellow bots a bit too much for me. Bumblebee = puppet/face of gov, Prowl = puppetmaster.

If that fellow in shadow with Prowl is Swindle or Skywarp, I'm tearing that next issue up (cover suggests Skywarp). If it's Megatron or a new Con or Autobot, my interest is piqued.

Why is Sideswipe G1 colors again? Why did he switch for one issue? Joke from the colorist?

And I thought Ratbat said they no longer had their special skills...who do we see using his teleport skill at the end of the issue. That's why I think it's Swindle in shadow, because he did something like those chips to Brawl in ongoing's end, and I could see it being used here, like he made a deal with Prowl, freedom for the ID chips...faulty ID chips (and Horribull shall now become a headmaster...) Because of Autocracy and Ongoing, Swindle is being set up as a big player in IDWs TFU.

Not sure which book I like better. Ultra-serious, or a bit more loose and silly?

The art I can deal with and am happy about, minus the WFC designs (especially Bumblebee). Like the Bee design on the cover much more.

Like the nod to Boba Fett in the splash panel (bottom right)...

It wont be Megatron as Prime is off searching the galaxy for him, bringing him back this soome is just plan stupid.

Swindle is doubtful, more likely it would be Thundercracker. As the person talking to Prowl has little or no knowledge of Earth it would suggest its a character who was not on Earth.

Also, Ratbat is a politician and a trained liar so the fact that he said Skywarp could not teleport should not lead you to believe he was telling the truth especially when he said he had a plan. Those"guys sitting quiet in the corner" are obviously the guys who figured out how to overide it and they are using deception to hide thier true plans.

Quiet simple really.

I get the Ratbat deal, it's why I was assuming Swindle, with faulty chips..or overideable chips.

Not quite so simple as you say, but I've only read it once with distractions.

My ponderance/cross-reference time may not have been equal to yours here.

Like I said, I don't remember when/how/why he got his cane. Just that he's had one for a while.

To be honest, I haven't been really keeping up with the IDW G1 comics as of late. :oops:

Bumblebee got blasted pretty bad by a human protester while addressing the humans, with a megatron blaster made with parts of Megatron (Iknow it sounds stuffed up, but that was Costa). If memory serves me correct, I believe it happened towards the end of the second story arc so somewhere between issue 10-12.
