Review: Transformers #1

A new start from IDW Publishing – a new Transformers series. Here are my thoughts!

A NEW ERA DAWNS! In the infinite universe, there exists a planet like no other: Cybertron! Home to the Transformers, and a thriving hub for inter-stellar commerce, it is a world brimming with organic and constructed diversity. Immense structures line its landscape. Mechanical giants roam across its surface. Starship-sized titans orbit its skies, keeping a constant protective watch above and below. Ancient Transformers merge into its very fabric. Small, mysterious creatures skulk in its shadows. It is a truly amazing realm, long untouched by war, and exuberantly reaching for the stars. This is the Cybertron that Optimus Prime and Megatron vie for in this bold new origin-a world of seemingly endless peace! All that changes when Bumblebee and Windblade take a newly-forged Cybertronian on his first voyage through this world of wonders-they are confronted by the hard reality of the first murder to have occurred on Cybertron in living memory!

A fresh start to the Transformers. We’re on Cybertron and there is no war. Although there is tension. Optimus is there (of a sort) as is Megatron, but there are no Decepticons. We know that is on it’s way, but that makes this story no less interesting. We also get a new Cybertronian – Rubble, fresh out of the box and wanting to encounter everything. This was a good way to flesh out the world and what happens with the Transfomers – I have a feeling his side will be interesting.
There are some other familiar faces (and mentions) with Prowl and Ironhide, so although this is different, there is a good degree of comfort.
The art is very enjoyable, with some excellent scenes and some very good lighting in some panels.

I think this is a good introduction to newer readers and a nice reboot for established Transformers readers!
