BEAST HUNTERS! They were there when Cybertron fell — but what happened to the Dinobots for the past few thousand years? Here’s a hint — Grimlock and company haven’t been sitting around and relaxing! The time is now — the place is Cybertron —and the recipe is ACTION!
Mairghread Scott grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, and was raised on a healthy diet of Shakespeare, Monty Python, and three iterations of Star Trek. After college, Mairghread worked her way up as an assistant while writing plays and honing her talents. Then she landed a job as a Script Coordinator for Transformers Prime and G.I. Joe Renegades. Mairghread got her first opportunity to join a writer's room there and it led to her first professional script, "Stronger, Faster." Since then, she has written for many different TV shows and comic books as a freelance writer and story consultant. She has had the joy of helping to create the first fan-built transformer, Windblade, and bring her to life in the IDW comics series of the same name as well as writing Windblade's introduction to the new animated series Transformers Robots in Disguise.
Mike Johnson is a highly imaginative and engaging writer who’s written stories for some of the biggest characters in comic book history, including Batman and Superman, and also has the distinction of having scripted more Star Trek comic book stories than any writer ever. Seriously.
Johnson’s first work with IDW was in 2009, when he wrote the miniseries Star Trek: Countdown, a well-received prequel to the 2009 J.J. Abrams film. Following Countdown, Johnson would go on to write many more Star Trek stories, including (but not limited to) Star Trek: Khan, Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, Star Trek: Nero, the crossover Star Trek/Green Lantern, and both of IDW’s ongoing Star Trek series, the most recent being Boldly Go with artist Tony Shasteen.
The first half of the story is a mystery with the bots trying to find the cannibal murderer, killing and then stealing energon from bots.
The second half features some interesting organic beasts that I really enjoyed seeing battle.
There's a lot if really cool action shots in this book, but I was kind of lost while reading. I wasn't familiar with the characters. If you only know if the Transformers movies, I wouldn't suggest this book unless you're ready to meet a new world.
Although visually stunning, I didn't think the stories or characters had much depth. I give this graphic novel a 3/5.
Save your money for something by James Roberts or John Barber. This is just embarrassing.
artwise, its passable with a penchant of dirty splatter with the 2 stories, a whodunit and the second seems better as a flashback then an overdrawn second. Both doesn't tell us anything new about the Dinobots.
skip this. save up for more worthy tomes. like the Art of Transformers Prime or Covenant of Primus (hey, lest one comes in a pretty box...I'm looking forward to it. If its THAT bad I'd tell that too)
