I recieved this comic by post Thursday. First thought was "Have I seen the cover before ?" Well no, issue 4.3 also has Arcee on the cover and combined with a white background has caused this.

Page 01:
Free gifts:
- Transformers Prime Missile Launcher. VERY Not impressed. At All. The damn thing is broken(see picture).

Still, I'm not gonna contact them for another copy, the free gift doesn't actually excite me that much.

Cover features PRIME promo art of Arcee and Ratchet !
Page 02-03: Index Page.
Page 04-05: Arcee Profile and Arcee photo mash-up.

Page 07-10: Part one of the the strip begins.

"School is... out!"
Scripting by Etherington and art by Domingues, Everything starts at Greenville high school, Greenville. Nevada(I wonder if this is fictional? )The school has an explosion due to gas leakage. it appears to be the fourth school in Jasper county so when the kids see this newscast(I thought they only watched rock videos and played games...)Optimus joins them and mentions that he suspects Decepticon activity. They decide to stake out at the school and discover it's not the Decepticons but human adversary Silas ! and he's after Jack !(see page below for an example)

Page 23-26: Part 2 of the strip! Jack enters the school(I know, stupid idea) without being seen or has he ? Silas confronts Jack and attempts to capture him but Arcee intervenes. Silas orders his troops to retreat to the roof, Jack manages to delay Silas in an interesting(but painful to men, a kick in the nuts) way. Amidst the confusion that follows, Silas does manage to escape and sets a firetrap for Jack. Arcee saves Jack and assures him he did a good thing trying to protect his family.(see another page)


Page 27-29: The letterpages, hosted by Megamouth Megatron (PRIME version) with a little help from Arcee (also PRIME version).
Page 30: Win Transformers figures competition.
Page 31: Next issue blurb which looks like a Prime cover. but then I was wrong every time....

Conclusion: Good Comic strip, again, simple and fun! Toy was probably stepped upon but hey, I've already said enough about that! Shame about the broken toy(oops did it again.....)

score: 6.0 out of 10
