Personally I think this comic is one of my favorites from this story arc. I didn’t use an internal narrative very often, and I think it worked better that way rather than have Bumblebee say everything out loud. The “shitting bricks” deal never got old to me, and I still find it visually funny.
I was still having fun with the Hot Shot/ Cliffjumper dynamic. They hated to love each other so these panels seemed to be pretty natural for the characters.
