Format: Paperback
Thematically, "All Hail Megatron" (AHM for short) pushes Transformers comics into new and interesting territory, a closer embrace of the "grim and gritty" approach to comics and graphic novels since the advent of works such as Watchmen, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Sin City etc. Interestingly enough, these seminal works emerged while Transformers G1 was broadcasted: most of us G1 fans would definitely remember the first Decepticon attack on an Oil Rig, and the epic confrontation of Hoover Dam. Think about the human casualties, blood and gore the animators dared not show back in the day. With anime, manga and the aforementioned trend in comics stirring up things in the past 25 years, AHM is almost like a "what if we saw what the 'cons REALLY did to humans?" dream come true, updated via modern aesthetics.

Starting with IDW's Infiltration series, the creators have focused hard in expanding the power gap between the 'cons and the 'bots in G1 (though not as drastic as say, Transformers Animated), both in terms of physical strength and strategic prowess. Throughout the series, the 'cons are truly a threat to behold - especially good ol' Megatron - not the cookie-cutter goons in G1. In this volume we see the culmination of their might, dumped upon the U.S. Army like test subjects. As the supposed apex of the current continuity, AHM succeeds in delivering the dazzling graphics, awesome firepower and one-sided tactical capabilities of the 'cons. The storyboards are well placed and impressive, though less over-the-top than some may like, and Guidi's panels are definitely more subtle than E.J. Su's work.

However, despite the visual orgasmics, AHM falls short in terms of plot presentation.

Format: Paperback
I must admit I had never read a "Transformers" comic book before, even though I love the franchise. I watched the cartoon, and the many spin-offs, religiously over the years but I just could not wrap my head around seeing the characters in another format.

Then I read the premise of "All Hail Megatron" and I NEEDED to read it. So, I read it. And I was lost. I don't know if a mini-series or series preceeded this title (the book doesn't give you a clue) but it sure felt like the second chapter of a story, rather than the first.

More importantly, as near as the franchise is to my heart, I don't know or remember all the characters by name, nor their backgrounds, and here the writer doesn't help you at all. He assumes you know all the characters, their origins, and their relationships with others. This lack of information detracts from the story. There were moments that were seemingly designed to hit the reader between the eyes but if you don't know the nuances, they knock you out of the story.

On the plus side, the understandable parts of the story's premise do work. The Decepticons have won and this is the world now. Additionally the art and production values are great. "All Hail Megatron" is a slick book, but not for the uninitiated, or even casual, "Transformers" fan.

Format: Paperback
This series was very intense and very crazy at times. What happens when the Decepticons are the only transformers on Earth? With no Autobots and no one to stop them, they take over and they don't care who they squish.

At first, I was confused where this series was taking me. But as you read on, you realize what has happened and the later issues explains where the Autobots went and the betrayal and the death and the resurrection.

If you want a crazy ride, this is the story to read.

When I found out about the All Hail Megatron series from IDW, I had to check out, especially since I am a long time Transformers G1 fan. The premise of this series is quite grim for everyone. Cybertron is a dead husk of a world. The Decepticons are running rampant and the Autobots have all but lost. They were ejected from Earth and are now stranded on Cybertron. Optimus Prime lay dying. Megatron and a group of Decepticons are ripping Earth's forces and societies to shreds. And to make matters worse, the Autobots have a traitor in their midst.

This series of graphic novels reprints collections of the comic book series. As I mentioned earlier, it casts the original Generation 1 Transformers, but in a whole new light and a whole new continuity. It is definitely worthwhile for any G1 fan to grab. There is plenty of action but also some unique twists to the roles that individual characters play on both teams.

This book started out strong but got a bit weak by the end. The idea of the bad guys winning is a very interesting idea and it worked very well. My only real problem is the book was to short and went to fast. Note: this book is advertised as a jumping on point for new readers but it has tons of references to previous stories that might not make sense to a new reader.
