Writing

This story taking place right after the first mini series is a great idea. It shows that when something bad is going to happen there is no telling when that will be. I know sometimes in shows when something bad happens right after another it can get boring, but I welcome that in comics. I am also a fan that in this mini series it is already going to be different than the last. It is going to be entertaining to see some of the ponies teaming up with the Decepticons.

Artwork

Some details for me in the artwork did not make sense. There is a scene where the Decepticons are looking one way and all the action is behind them. It was a weird panel. You would have to check out this issue to see what I mean. Another thing I did not like was that Rainbow Dash’s colors were off. It wasn’t like a HUGE deal, but I knew something was off with her mane in the front of her face. Other than that the rest of the artwork was great. For this first issue they have kept with a more playful look. I hope it does stay uniform, but if it is going to be like the first series then I know everyone is going to bring their own flare to it. I would like for the series to keep a realistic look with loud colors.

One Funny Moment

Pinkie Pie has me rolling when they go to Cybertron because she tells the Decepticons that she loves that their cutie marks match 🤣

Overall

It is great to see this series continue. I know it sounded like I did not enjoy the first mini series, but I actually did. All I wanted was more of a story, but it was still great overall. It is great for kids. If this mini series gets popular then maybe they will continue it and make one big long story.

🟢 Where to Buy 🟢

If your local comic shop does not have it then you can always buy it on Amazon.
