Out this week, Wednesday December 10th in the US, 11th in the UK, is the first issue (of five) of Maximum Dinobots, the no-holds barred return of Grimlock, Sludge, Slag, Snarl and Swoop. Plus Scorponok, Sunstreaker, Hot Rod, Headmasters and more! And though issue #1 picks up on story strands laid in various Spotlights and Escalation/Devastation, this one kicks off from the ground level, bringing the five Dinobots—last seen together way back in Spotlight Shockwave—back together again in a raging battle-filled storyline that pulls no punches. Featuring Nick Roche’s amazing art and Josh Burcham’s scintillating colours, Maximum Dinobots is just a must-have. We confidently predict a roaring success!

    (Is it just me or would ‘Max Dino’ be a good name for a new Dinobot?!)

    I really enjoyed this issue… it’s good to be getting to see your Earth side of the -ation plots in play again… and Roche’s art is lovely as always.

    And I got a Western Massachusite chuckle out of Northampton, MA getting a mention. Whee!

    I can’t wait to pick up this issue because it takes place in my hometown and I want to see how close you got to it, Simon!

    Loved it! There’s a lot crammed in while still maintaining a sharp pace, the Hunter-Sunstreaker dynamic is great, every key player is showing some smarts (nice to see Joshua Red’s noticed what keeps happening to his group!), and that opening three pages says everything you need to know about the Dino’s and what they do.

    Plus the art’s great, but we all know it is cos it’s by Nick Roche (MAXIMUM Roche!).
