"Megatron´s Law !"
Script: Robin Etherington
Art: Dario by Brizuela
Lettering: Comicraft

Location: Danakil desert, Erta Ale Volcano. Megatron(HAIL!) wonders why the Autobots are still walking freely among the human parasites of this planet. (and he's right ofcourse !) his conclusion is that the warriors under his command must be too weak and shows Starscream his solution to the problem. Gladitorial combat, survival of the fittest! Starscream objects and mentions that there's no way to force Decepticons to kill Decepticons.
His comments are noted and gets thrown into the pit to fight Fearstorm instead of the expected 'factory reject drone'. Still citing Decepticon law, Megatron(HAIL!) warns Starscreams that unless he finds the Key, the shackle attached to his wrist will explode 10 minutes after the start of the contest.

Page 22-25: Part 2 of the strip!
Starscream is attacked and must fight for his life! unable to transform due to the magnetic pull of the vulcano he resorts to his brain. Using Fearstorm as jumppoint he manages to get a spike and traps Fearstorm with it. He takes his spark just in case Megatron wasn't lying. Megatron admits that is wasn't a bad effort and welcomes him back to the bridge of the Nemesis while Starscreams vows revenge.
