TRANSFORMERS: Windblade #5 Review

While Robots In Disguise has gone through various changes, including plot and name, issues like Transformers: Windblade #5 make me wonder why things aren’t the other way around. Why can’t Windblade be a more permanent character? The official description from IDW: RACE AGAINST THE LIGHT! On VELOCITRON, racing isn’t a sport—it’s a matter of life […]

Transformers: Robots In Disguise #42 Review

Transformers: Robots In Disguise #42 is one of those issues that offers a lot at first glance yet, after a second read through, starts to appear a little shallow. Still, thats the problem with being an epilogue, no matter how much you offer, you’re either summing up whats already happened or teasing something else. First, […]

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #41 Review

From the outset of Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #41, you could expect a grim storyline. Heck, it’s got a funeral and the series has dealt with similar themes before. What we have, however, is much more the opposite. Whether that’s an improvement or not may very well split the audience. The official description […]

Transformers #41 Review

As the Combiner Wars event swings into the second half, Transformers #41 starts to bring more action and quicker, faster developments. While this feels off with the slower pacing, it does feel all the more substancial as a result. The official description from IDW: DESPERATE ACTIONS! As the SPACEBRIDGE reaches across the stars, will anyone […]

Transformers: Windblade Combiner Wars #2 Review

Well, Transformers: Windblade Combiner Wars #2 is actually the third issue in the Combiner Wars arc.. I think. Still, it’s holding up well and this issue, particularly, sees a decent return to form. The official description from IDW: PROWL makes his move… and the galaxy will never be the same. Can WINDBLADE stand against the […]

Transformers #40 Review

While the “Combiner Wars” title isn’t very apparent so far, Transformers #40 continues the trend in this latest issue, with a big cross-over arc that teases more political aspects than it does simple fighitng. Honestly, I can’t tell what I prefer, but there are some definite improvements here and – at the very least – […]

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #39 Review

Taking a quick break between bigger arcs, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #39 offers a simple one-shot that leads into the upcoming developments. With a return to the Decepticon Justice Division, this issue might not be the big humour-fest that regular readers are use to. The official description from IDW: RETURN OF THE D.J.D.! […]

TRANSFORMERS: WINDBLADE #1 Review

While this latest big flashy arc looks to be much better than Dark Cybertron, it does bounce around a few titles. This time, the second issue is Transformers: Windblade #1, the first in a three part miniseries. The last Windblade miniseries was great and, well, there’s a lot of potential here. The official description from […]

Angry Birds/Transformers #4 Review

Well, here it is, the final to what can likely be called one of the oddest mashups currently available in comics. Angry Birds / Transformers #4 marks the end of a unique series, one that that has definately been fun, so does the final issue manage to go out with a bang? First, the official […]

Transformers #39 Review

Okay, Transformers #39 or Combiner Wars: Opening Salvo , call this issue what you like. The main crux of the matter is, for a title that’s gone through some changes over the last year, is this recent development a step in the right direction, or just a cheap cash-in to summer toy launches? First off, […]

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #38 Review

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #38 marks the end of the Elegant Chaos arc and, despite it’s brevity, demonstrates how to pack a lot in at every given opportunity. It’s quirky, funny, action-packed and, well, just brilliant. The official description from IDW: JOURNEY’S END! Across time, across space, from prewar Messatine to postwar CYBERTRON—it’s […]

Transformers: Days of Decepticon #38 Review

Transformers: Days of Decepticon #38 delivers a somewhat satisfying conclusion to the current arc. Yet, at the same time, it does feel a little cheaty as it steers itself to wards the next big arc. The question, of course, is whether there’s still enough to enjoy here? The official description from IDW: THE ONYX INTERFACE! […]

Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #4 Review

As the last issue of the mini series, Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #4 has to offer resolution to everything it set out to question. Now, while it hasn’t been a perfect ride, it’s been greatly enjoyable, so how does it choose to end things? The official description from IDW: FINAL FATE! This is it—DRIFT […]

Transformers vs G.I Joe #5 Review

For a series that dances with issues of clarity and simplicty, Transformers vs G.I Joe #5 pushes the envelope a little too far. Nobody can say these issues don’t pack plenty of action, but the coherency of said action often seems to be the collateral damage in the process. First, the official description from IDW: […]
