Things only get darker and more Cybertron in Dark Cybertron #7, #8 and #9. We follow the Rod-Podians into the brain/left shoulder of the Metrotitan and meet Nautica, Chromia and Windblade, three happenin' dames who also happen to be arresting/saving the Lost Light crew. Meanwhile Rod himself (the real guy, not the pilot-able head ship) confesses a tragic confession to Optim--I mean, Orion Pax. Maybe? Who knows what to call him anymore. And, poor, poor Starscream. We've all been there, buddy. Who hasn't had your constituents more or less blown up by a massive city-sized robot with a connection to a universe made out of absolute death in a boxing match with an equally-gigantic android missing a thumb? That old chestnut.
Also, see if you can hear the ice cream truck parked outside Greg's house for a good chunk of the recording!
