transformers-comics-robots-in-disguise-issue-22-cover-a_1373632083The saga continues with Soundwave confronting Shockwave in an epic battle. With the help of his cassettes Soundwave battles Shockwave to a stalemate in which they decide to part ways. Although Shockwave feels he can destroy Soundwave he chooses not, because there are more important things to worry about for the  leader of the Decepticons. Soundwave walks away with his life and confidence that his side will need him for the salvation of Cybertron.

Readers also get to know a little more about Soundwave’s minions. Ravage and Buzz Saw first discover Soundwave on the streets of Cybertron battling what seems to be a million voices in his head. Unable to focus on only one, Ravage offers advice on how to calm the noise and begin to eliminate the mass amount of voices in his head. It will take some time for Soundwave to overcome these lights, sounds, and voices but they are confident that one day he will.

Again leading into the dark Cybertron crossover, stories of the past begin to pop up and bring light to who will finally lead the Decepticons in the absence of Megatron. What part Soundwave plays in the event seems to be building. This was a great follow up to issue the last issues story. The cross over between Robots in Disguise and More than Meets the Eye has been a truly an epic event so far.
