Transformers: King Grimlock #1

The concept for Transformers: King Grimlock #1 is simple but effective. What would happen if you dropped Grimlock in something like the Savage Land? We start with a brief cameo from Optimus Prime who Grimlock saves from a portal only to find himself transported to the savage world of Menonia.

The tribe's wizard had hoped to bring Optimus Prime as the hero of legend to stand against the fearsome Golden One. Instead, they got Grimlock who it turns out has no interest in saving the people and rather likes the idea of spending time in the savage land.

After his transport, Grimlock gets his first taste of action taking on what he calls "horse-cats" before encountering the tribe who plead for the Dinobot's help and inform him without defeating the Golden One they don't have the magic needed to send him home. Eventually, no doubt, Grimlock will be convinced to help. Until then we should get some fun of seeing the King of the Dinobots let loose on a world where he no longer must hold back.
