Verdict - 5

- I really can't say enough good things about IDW. I personally loved everything about this issue. The story continues from The Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and the Dinobots are assisting Ultra Magnus in the evacuation of Cybertron. The only minor gripe is unless you have either played the game, read the prior series, or just know about the War and the Dinobots origin, it might be a little confusing. I really liked the art in the issue, in other Transformers comics I have even found it hard to decipher one Autobot or Decepticon from the next, but with this issue that wasn't a problem. As things heat up we are bound to have more excitement between the Dinobots, the Predacons and Soundwave. Can't wait to read the whole series and hopefully see the Dinobots in Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters cartoon.
