THE RETURN! He's back… and Cybertron will never be the same! Everything Bumblebee and his Autobots have built teeters on the edge of collapse — and Starscream has to make the choice his whole life has been leading to. And meet the new Prowl — deadlier than ever, colder then any other Autobot, and ready to end the Decepticon threat!
This volume collects issues #12-16 of the regular ongoing series.
John Barber is a former Marvel and IDW Publishing editor now focused on writing comics. Credits include: Optimus Prime, Doctor Strange/Punisher, Ultimate Spider-Man Infinite Comics, Revolutionaries, Back to the Future, and Action Man comics!
The characterizations are strong, and the plot is fairly good. The dialogue is fine. The battles and the combiner fights particularly are a bit silly though. Prowl and Arcee continue to surprise. Megatron is a bit too one-dimensional here, especially when compared to the brilliant work that James Barber does with him a bit later in the brilliant MTMTE series.
The art is fine, though not as good as volume 3.
Starscreams accent is handled reasonably, but most of the plot feels miniaturised. IDw 's transformers universe just keeps shrinking instaed of expanding and the whole: the war is over routine just doesnt make sense. It didnt make sense when all hail megatron was concluded as a complete defeat of the decepticons. not after milions of years of war. And when megatron returned and was defeated again, was that the end of the war? Nope.. it just starts over this issue. ( And I am happy it did) But isit over now? They should let go of the ridiculous notion that after winning a battle the war is over its not. nor should it. but i am getting of topic. this paperback is a very nice read. Lovely closure.
The art is allright overal, except for megatrons face/facialexpresions in general. Also it seems transformer artists just can't capture arcee for some reason. but putting that aside. I very much enjoyed these issues. hence a recomendation.
