Wait. What? It's over?
War is over!
...And now it only gets even more intense.
In the beginning of 2012, IDW announced Transformers would have not one, but TWO ongoing series, and so, fans didn't know quite what to expect, until it was announced that the talent behind both would reflect the works to follow onward. James Roberts, co-writer of Last Stand of the Wreckers and author of the lauded two parter Chaos Theory story now stands head writer alongside some familiar faces, with fellow Wrecker artist Nick Roche helping in, and IDW regular Alex Milne standing as the mainstay artist!
While in Sister series Robots in Disguise, the story is of political intrigue and slow burning thriller, More Than Meets the Eye is a riproaring adventure into space, think Star Trek, but everyone can turn into a car, or a memory stick if you want to stay non-shapist!
The reading is light on pages, but each crammed with more depth and entertainment than any ongoing transformers story in possibly 20 years, and from the blast off, the gathering of a crew and the reveal of a terrifying secret aboard the ship, this issue covers the debut of the team, and shapes up well for IDW's future.
While 'RiD' boasts a familiar line up, 'MTMTE' is full of new and unexplored characters, ripe for introduction and quick to warm to, and best of all?
You don't even have to have read a comic before this to enjoy it.
It certainly HELPS, and to assist, also within is penned by Roberts and Co. the one-shot comic 'The Death of Optimus Prime', detailing the wedge driven into the Autobots that has created such a split.
The Lost Light is lost, and there's a wide, wide galaxy out there between the crew and their goals.
But luckily for us, the adventure is so much more than the destination...
Buy it now, and see for yourself if you're willing to join the crew.
This volume contains the foundational issues, so it's mostly basic adventure stuff here. The storytelling is dense, with LOTS happening in each issue. All the important seeds for later on in the arc are laid down in this book.
This series builds in quality of storytelling as it progresses, so don't stop at Volume 1.
It's very good. The dialogue is excellent. The plots and characters are wonderfully done. Starscream made an excellent joke at Rat Bat's expense - I actually laughed out loud. Mr. Roberts has done a better job describing the origin of the fight between the Autobots and the Decepticons better than any other comic, cartoon or movie has done (that I've seen).
Like any mysterious post-war drama and action story, things are vague and characters weakly defined. Rights and wrong seems clear, but that would be too easy. James Roberts NEVER gives the reader something easy. Once you settle into the groove, the last page hooks you like a fish and you're in. The rest of the volumes are sure to get you addicted and the drama, shock, suspense, action, and horror is sure to keep you coming back for more.
