While this comic is still miles better of what Costa ever did, I am liking it less and less. Maybe because MTMTE is so much more fun to read, I dunno...
Prowl is becoming more and more off from his Furman/Roche portrayal. He is giving in to his emotions a lot of times, and straight-out considers the Cons 'animals'. Not to mention he is a pathetic liar... I had to laugh, so he expects people to believe that Ratbat got so depressed, he chopped his wing and legs off and nailed himself to a wall?
Seriously? Not to mention that the super-smart guy suddenly lost ALL forms of tact, and constantly keeps calling the neutrals 'NAILS' even though he knows well he only angers them that way. I like my Prowl more calculating and smart. This guy is a sarcastic police detective, not a high-ranking string-pulling magnificient bastard.
Arcee is still a psycho, which is... odd, considering (s)he only had a grudge against Jhiaxus and was pretty normal in HoD.
Silverbolt and the Aerialbots suddenly pull a turn straight out of Marvel G1, stealing Grimlock's act (seriously, where ARE the dinobots?) and marching off angrily. Barrel-Roll had "hi-then-die" written on him from the get-go, anyway.
I did enjoy the parts with Wheeljack, though.
My problem with the new comics is, I like to read about Decepticons as much as Autobots, and they are pretty much all in RID (unless you count Tailgate and Cyclonus). And I don't like how this writer handles them.
