More than Meets the Eye continues to be one of the strongest books about the robots that turn into cars and planes that has ever been written.

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!

Again, I cannot stress enough how amazing it is the way these robots are portrayed with such human emotion and characteristics. Great stories, with emphasis on 2nd tier characters and directions never used before with our favorite Bots. Get it, read it, read it over and over in the future!

Seriously, what can I say about this book series that could ever own up to its awesomeness?

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!

The first two trades of MTMTE are outstanding. This one falls off a bit, partly because of inconsistent art, but mostly because of a winding story about Transformers history that is told in a choppy sequences by multiple narrators, all while another story is taking place.

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.

I really like the off beat storyline and b cast characters. My only complaint is not the comic so much as the kindle format. It would be nice if it was possible to zoom. Some of the smaller text is almost unreadable. I prefer some of the other comic reader apps that let you go frame by frame.

This is the series to read, whether you're a longstanding fan of Transformers or not. Heck, this is the series to read if you've never picked up a comic book before. I can't recommend it strongly enough.

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.

Simply put, this is the best Transformer title that has ever been produced IMHO. Only Dreamwave's classic 02 - 04 Generation 1 run by Adam Patyk & Brad Mick comes close. In fact, I thought nothing would ever top what Dreamwave had started. As I mentioned in my review of Transformers MTMTE Vol 1, I have been completely blown away with this title! James Roberts is a masterful storyteller! Alot of the main characters on MTMTE are not considered "classic" transformer characters. Roberts has taken characters such as Chromedome, Rewind, Swerve, Skids, Whirl, Tailpipe and made them absolutely shine!! He has made them come alive & become amazing characters that readers have become totally invested in. And the art from Milne is absolutely beautiful!! I am so glad that I was talked back into giving Transformers another try. Specifically this title. I have not read any of the Robots In Disguise issues so i cannot give any comments related to that title. However, I would be willing to bet the bank that its nowhere (and I mean absolutely nowhere) as good as MTMTE!! Highest possible recommendation!!

IDW has been doing a great job with their different Transformers titles, but More Than Meets the Eye is the best of all they have done!
