    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Apr 9, 2021

    Burcham's artwork is nicely detailed throughout the issue. Megatron and Tarantulas really do come off as fearsome and creepy with Burcham's work while he displays the action and Dinobot's skill in a clear manner that is easy to follow and well choreographed. His colours are vibrant and pop off the page, particular during the climax with Dinobot's fight against the Predacons. Burcham uses a nice mix of bright and dark colours to make the scene visually exciting, engaging and very animated with the movements of the characters and their facial expressions. With Burcham's artwork and Burnham's writing, the new Beast Warscontinues its great start. Read Full Review

    Of course Alan said art should make us feel uncomfortable or challenged. So, while I may not be a big fan of watching male characters gloating as they torture a female prisoner, I can safely guess that it won't be the sole content or theme of the series as a whole. That certainly wasn't the case with the TV series. If anything I will probably now catch up on the second issue to understand said torture's context, then keep an eye on where this series is headed.

    The issue isn't anything game-changing, but it's the kind of simple, stellar storytelling that readers have been expecting from the series from the first issue. Read Full Review

    Unbeknownst to the Maximals, Nyx has been captured in enemy territory. Now that the Predacons have taken their first prisoner, the torturing and interrogation will begin. However, other Predacons don’t agree with the way Megatron is going about the situation. Now dissent stirs in the Predacon ranks. Meanwhile, the Maximals disagree on how to go about finding Nyx.

    The Beast Wars rage on in this issue as we see Nyx tortured for information. I love the focus on Dinob more

    This issue is focused on the Predacons. It made for a very intersting issue, seeing not only more of Megatron, his leadership style & Skold the brand-new female Predacon. It also feature Dinobot's SPOILER, which is an improvement of how it happened originally. Much more befitting of his character and makes the character more sympathetic from the start.

    Dinobot defecting in order to prevent the unethical torture of a P.O.W. is a solid motivation and a worthwhile contribution to his origin story.

    Its ok but im just hoping wed be a little farther story wise 3 issues in but, for what it is, its pretty good. I also wish the art wasnt as cartoony considering how beast wars looked back in the day.
