AHM 11 Preview

Suddenly the military is vaguely scary again for some reason;

Also gotta love that Megs says he forsees everything whilst with the same (lack of) breath acknolwdging that he did not see the rise of the Autobots coming.

I've taken such a long break from AHM that reading this preview was a renewed slap in the face. Dreamwave Devastator, apparently pointless sacrifice of lives and military hardware in a bizarre expedition to drop a nuclear bomb using the old-fashioned method, and Megatron talking absolute drivel. Just trying to make sense of his grand scheme or what role Starscream's rebellion plays in it makes my brain want to crash and burn.

Oh, and the cover promises a big showdown between two insanely huge robots. In certain contexts, that's an exciting prospect, but here it just comes across as another desperate lunge for kewlness and significance.

That is one HELL of a Devastator shot. Wow for Guido.

Shame he's spending so much time on a suck story.

They're not big, Mr Tigg. They're fighting inside one of those posh show rooms with miniature models of future building projects.

Agree that artwork is top notch.

But what the hell is Megatron actually yapping about?

What exactly was this ridiculous sounding master plan he had going? I don't get it.

Please don't tell me this is why "All Hail Megatron"?
