Reviews: Transformers & Return To Vader’s Castle

Some thoughts on two of this weeks comics from IDW Publishing – Transformers #13 and Star Wars Adventures: Return To Vader’s Castle #3

Transformers #13

The hunt is on! Chromia and Prowl launch a massive security operation, desperately trying to track down two murderers. Bumblebee visits an injured Windblade, Orion Pax, Sentinel Prime, and Megatron wrestle for control and influence—and nobody knows whose side (if anyone’s) Termagax and Starscream are on in all of this!

The preview text and the covers don’t actually match up with what’s inside. Nevertheless this is a good issue, with things going down the the Autobot security forces as well as the Decepticons Acenticons. I still love how the new logo has been brought in. And there are some excellent scenes. With all the action, I still think the best scenes are with Bumblebee – especially with Soundwave. This is gettting really tense and it’s not going to take much to kick off a war!

Star Wars Adventures: Return To Vader’s Castle #3

When mysterious disappearances in the Coruscant underworld leave the authorities perplexed, there’s only one bounty hunter fit for the job: Asajj Ventress.

We get a nice bit of rebel humour before getting to this story about the adventures of Asajj Ventress.
This was less horror, and more of a good adventure. You can see the betrayal coming, but it was well executed and a fun read. The ending with the rebels gives us something to look forward to!
