Hoping to get my Rodimus Star for gratuitous hype!

I've been sick as can be all week, but I did have the chance to pick up Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38, the conclusion to the time-travel storyline "Elegant Chaos." A traitor aboard the Lost Light has gone back in time, but not to kill Optimus Prime as believed--he went back to kill Megatron! Trapped in a fading future, Megatron does not take that news as stoically as you might hope:

Rodimus and his team do stop the traitor, but the traitor's goal was never to kill Megatron, only to try and stop him from becoming the Decepticon tyrant that killed billions. So one of Rodimus's team takes it upon himself to kill Megs, citing it as the worst possible case for themselves and all Transformers, but the best possible timeline for everyone else in the universe; and the one that hated Megatron the most has to save him...meanwhile, thanks to time-travel, several plot points we've already seen are set in motion, including a cryptic message from the first issue! (They try to warn themselves about future events, but fail...perhaps luckily, since Cyclonus points out if they had heeded the warning, they'd probably all be dead!)

Humble Bundle has another Transformers bundle going now, and you can get the first 37 issues of the series! Do yourself a favor and pick up #38 now--call it speculation if you like--but you don't want to miss the conclusion. Even if Transformers, or licensed books, aren't usually your thing; it's remarkably well-crafted. All the pieces fit together virtually seamlessly--not unlike a good Transformer, for that matter.
