Customer Review

on July 6, 2010
The Story:
Nothing new. Without giving too much away Optimus leaves the autobots to fend for themselves for a while.
Theres some tension between them, then there isn't. Its been told before.
Optimus seems to have loads of faith in the Autobots considering they completely go to pieces every time their left on their own.

In All Hail Megatron the world was at stake, here the only think at stake are a few badly drawn characters you'll find it hard to care about.

The Art:
Don Figueroa is a BRILLIANT artist, he's drawn some of the best new transformer art ever.
He decided to draw each Transformer to look more like the movie-inspired transformers. Hey he took a chance.

And they look awful.

These are transformers he's already drawn, looking great, and now, embarrasingly.......their parts are showing.
Vents for teeth, or nails for teeth
Multiple plates for faces.
Tiny beady (dead) eyes.
Hey they look like robots.....you wouldn't want to look at.

If this was a movie based book you could put up with it, many of them look like "art" people have put together in their yard.
But its a continuation of the "classic" transformers story.
On character model that have already been drawn that looked interesting and had a nostalgic feel.
These new models should look life-like and expressive, instead they look like plates and nails that appear to be trying to express something.

Its great to draw them as robots, they're not human after all, but drawing them as INHUMAN has possible makes the comic difficult to read and very hard to recommend.

But if you're like me you'll buy the book anyway.
It might be a dip in the overall story quality but the Transformers have a way of telling a great larger story that allows for dips like this.

But lets try to draw them like Transformers, not a bucket of parts that got kicked over and happen to look like a face.
