The Decepticons leave Cybertron in pursuit of Megatron and the All Spark.


On Cybertron, the Autobots have hidden the All Spark. But Megatron feels its pull, and goes to claim it for his own, sending Blackout to reinforce Starscream's troops at Tyger Pax. The Decepticons there are mopping up, when they witness the All Spark's launch into space. As Blackout and Starscream argue over their next step, they observe Megatron leaving in pursuit. Assuming cumbersome protoform modes, the group heads into space under Starscream's leadership.

Much later, and light years away, the group makes planetfall on Earth, in Afghanistan's Khyber Pass. They sense the All Spark's pull, but too faintly to track. Wreckage destroys an incoming human troop carrier, and takes its form. Starscream notes that Megatron could easily subdue the inhabitants, and Blackout says that they must discover why he hasn't. Wreckage leads the others to Bargam Airbase, where they hope to find more information on Megatron's whereabouts from its computers.

At the base, the troops have lost contact with their troop carrier, and anticipate an attack. The Decepticons soon arrive, scanning additional vehicles and assuming alternate forms. Barricade claims friendship with humans, only to turn on them. Another soldier uses an EMP pulse weapon to disable Wreckage. Elsewhere, Blackout has found files on a "Project Iceman", but the humans use another EMP burst to shut down their own computers. Bonecrusher suspects Starscream is plotting something... which he is.

Blackout heads off to another nearby base to find more information. Barricade wonders if things will really be all that easy; Starscream assures him that it won't be, since the Autobots are sure to turn up sooner or later. The war is only beginning.

"You will stay put until we know what happened."
"'Know what happened'? Is he a bit slow? I feel it, and so must all of you. That was the All Spark!"

Blackout and Barricade


  • "All Spark" is parsed as one word instead of two.

Items of note

  • This was one of two free prequel comics released by IDW through Target.
  • Like its predecssor, the book includes various computer readouts and explosions as seen through "Robovision", rendered as light blue lettering hidden among a field of random red and white. Using the same principle as the tech specs of Generation 1, a clear red plastic Robo-Vision Decoder, when placed over these fields, reveals such secret words as "TFGAMER" and "ANIMATED".
