Reviewer: Me

Transformers: Autocracy is the origin story of Orion Pax, or as he is better known, Optimus Prime. In the first six issues which were available on NetGalley for review, we learn of Prime's history as a leader of a counter-terror strike team who were tasked with several mission in order to thwart dissident Decpticons. With each mission, Orion Pax discovers new information on the true agenda of the Autobot leader, Zeta Prime and the Autocracy. In the end, it is Orion Pax who has to decide which faction, Autocracy or Dissident, is truly worth fighting for.

I really enjoyed Transformers: Autocracy. For anyone who follows the Transformers lore, you already know it a vast universe that spans decades through cartoons, movies, video games, and action figures. One of the most fascinating parts of the universe is learning about Cybertron, the wars the Transformers had to endure, and of course how our characters became the totally awesome robots in disguise they are today. Who was Optimus before he was a Prime? Were he and Megatron once Allies fighting for the same cause? All this and more will be revealed in Autocracy. And yes my friends, it's a turbulent adventure no true Transformers fan will want to miss!

Some of our favorite Transformers make an appearance throughout the story, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Soundwave, Prowl, Ratbat, Starscream are just few. I was definitely feeling nostalgic from seeing their faces inked onto the pages and hearing Ironhide's sarcastic comments. From time to time I could feel myself screaming, "I had that action figure. Oh and that one too!

This is a fantastic story written before "The Great War". Young Optimus here is not a Prime yet, nor does he know he ever will be. He simply goes by Orion Pax. He distrust the Senate, but follows orders like a good soldier. You'll witness him become a Prime, side with Megatron, fight Megatron and the rest is "history".

I enjoyed this book, and think the writing is top notch. The art is also fantastic but sometimes things are a bit hard to make out since it can be quite dark. You can probably sit and read this in about 1 hour straight, cause I did. This was released as a bi-weekly digital comic and I am truly happy it made it to print. I'm a huge fan of Transformers, and this was one of the better tales written recently. Do yourself a favor and get this book. You'll enjoy it.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER on August 6, 2012
Format: Paperback
Transformers: Autocracy was originally released as a digital-only twelve part series. IDW will be releasing the entire series in one collection on August 7, 2012. Courtesy of NetGalley an IDW, I was able to review the first six issues of the series, consisting of Law & Disorder, Parasites, The Hunt for Soundwave, Cause & Effect, Ruins, and Purge.

Set after the events of Megatron: Origin, during the beginning of the Great War, the Decepticons are trying to take over Cyberton through terrorist actions. Going by Zeta Prime's orders, Orion Pax leads a team of Autobots, which includes Hound, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Prowl, and Silverbolt, as they hunt down Swindle and Laserbeak. The Autobots barely survive the battle with them.

Zeta Prime learns that Megatron has developed the ultimate weapon. The Autobots' new orders are to bring in a Transformer that is responsible of bombing a city. A Transformer named Hot Rod.

Each issue of Transformers Autocracy is only eight pages long, making it a fast read. I barely recall watching the original cartoon series back in the 80s and do not recall ever owing any of toys as a kid. I only became interested in Transformers when the movies were released to theaters. Here, us readers, get a chance to see the beginning of the end of Cyberton. The Transformers drawings match more to the original toys and cartoons, and less like the movie's computerized version. Overall, the six issues I reviewed was action packed and enjoyable.

I was finally starting to enjoy an IDW comic up until the end. I won't give the story away but it starts really interesting showing the rise of optimus prime and Megatron but at the ending had been done before and the third time IDW has used this plot line. A major let down. Also, if you're a Decepticon fan like me, IDW trends to early show them out not have a good story line.

As above, pretty cool.
Some scenes were choppy or didn't flow well. The art was good and the story was interesting. I felt as if the writer didn't know how he should portray Orion pax. There was character development but the changes felt insignificant.
I thought Megatron acted as he always does. Orion Pax didn't appeal much at all to me. This was a cool read. You see the events that made optimus become optimus. Check it out for yourself.

I love seeing the old cities of cybertron which have never really been hit upon to much, these new stories of the Great War and the battles that took place before and the historical sites of cybertron give me chills!
