Transformers: Regeneration One #99

Leading into next month's over-sized 100th issue finale, Transformers: Regeneration One #99 wraps up the Jhiaxus storyline while giving us glimpses of the other looming threats. As Jhiaxus brags to the captive Autobot leader Rodimus Prime, Autobot Wreckers start dismantling the hub network. The newly reconstituted Shockwave lends a hand as well, allowing the force in control of Starscream to face Jhiaxus and end the threat once and for all.

Although we don't learn the condition of Optimus Prime, we get a glimpse of the captured Spike. And on Cybertron we witness a still-dangerous Galvatron running amok on a world with few Autobots remaining. Thankfully Cybertron still is protected by Dinobots (setting up a possible battle between Grimlock and Galvatron to cap the series).

With plenty of action that highlights many of my favorite Transformers, and even moves the logical Shocwave to emotion in a terrific panel, there's much here to enjoy as the comic sets up its grand finale that all started in a four-issue mini-series 30 years ago. Worth a look.
