In the hands of James Roberts, the franchise has risen above the 'to-sell-toys' stigma of the Transformers and taken the title into a realm of well written science fiction adventure. Volume 3 of the series takes break from the forward moving story and plays in the past, with Roberts mastery of non-linear story telling giving us a well balanced flashback issue that is both 'Shocking' and hilarious.
Alex Milne continues to shine as one of the best artists in IDW's stable, matching the styling of Nick Roche whose work has been so intertwined with Roberts' writing since "Last Stand of the Wreckers."
Milne takes only half of the credit for Volume 3 as the first half, "Primus: You, Me and Other Revelations" is drawn by Jimbo Salgado, Emil Cabaltierra, and Transformers veteran Guido Guidi who produced a magnificently drawn flashback echoing back to the old Marvel comics from the 1980s.
More than Meets the Eye lives up to its name!

Thus begins a convoluted tale, an epic quest (yes, I did use those words intentionally!) and the snark and snappy shots abound.
In this series, you will run a gamut of emotions, but every book will leave you tasted-up for the next installment!
It's 3.5 stars, which for me is really high (people who read reviews tend to think that everything they like should get 5 stars, which ruins the rating system). Roberts is an exceptional writer when it comes to the Transformers. His characters are well rounded. The stories are dense - there is a much larger amount of words per issue than the typical comic. Sometimes, he gets a bit Charles Dickens on us with the setting and background and he could afford a few cuts, but overall it's a superior product that he is producing.
This volume contains a double-length "Annual" issue, which delves into the mythology of the Transformers' origins. Sadly, some of the art just in this one issue is not as good as the art in the rest of the series, but we will forgive that because...
...This volume also contains the three-issue "Shadowplay" arc, which is EXCELLENT.
James Roberts uses different story genres to great effect in this series. We've had sitcom, horror, ancient epic, and with Shadowplay, we get film noir. This arc focuses on Optimus Prime, one of the most memorable characters of Transformers; but the story takes place before he gained that title. It ends with one of the biggest shocks in the history of Transformers comics.
Read this series. Every page is a wonderful discovery.
