Finally. I’ve been trudging through this book for three months, and here we are. Issue 4 brings us the autobots, with lots of page time for Jazz, Prowl, and Iron Hide. Bumblebee and Wheeljack make a fun duo in the issue, but I think the high-point is Cliffjumper. He gets a great set-up and a nice little bit of character pay off. I am enjoying the focus on the original robots. I’m fine with keeping the spotlight on the original characters for awhile. Comics about Transformers need to focus on Autobots and Decepticons. Up until this point, we’ve had too few of the former. Now that the ‘Bots have arrived, the story FINALLY feels like it is starting.
IDW keeps putting out good-looking Transformers books. Guido Guidi’s art is a nice mix of dark backgrounds with colorful Autobots in the foreground.
