Transformers Escape #1
The Decepticons are full-blown evil. The Autobots are beginning to come together. The Insecticons are eating almost anything that moves. In short, CHAOS!!!
Artist Beth McGuire-Smith once again saves the day. I’ve never seen someone make dialogue-heavy pages look so good. The Transformers are obviously not in the same alt-modes that we’re used to be she really pays tribute to the forms they will eventually take by skewing their Cybertronian vehicle modes slightly towards the form they will take when they eventually get to Earth. As great as the art is, is not quite enough the shot in the arm this book needs to escape it. If you’re a hardcore Transformers fan, you’ll want to pick this up. If you’re a casual fan, I would recommend waiting for a different comic or series to start with. This one is pretty bogged-down in Transformers lore.
The good new is, there's a lot to sink your teeth into. The bad news is, it's pretty boring.
