Are we already on issue #5 of Transformers? Well here are some of my thoughts on this excellent reboot of the series from IDW Publishing!
A brand new era of Transformers! The investigation into the mystery of Cybertron’s first murder continues! Windblade closes in on answers, Rubble finds a job that suits him, and Bumblebee… well, Bumblebee has a secret that could lead to chaos. A cosmic epic of grand scale, presented by Star Trek/Green Lantern and Injustice 2 artist Angel Hernandez! Plus awesome action by G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and Revolutionaries artist Ron Joseph!Brian Ruckley – Writer

Wow! that was an interesting read! Rubble seems to be making his own way, and that seems to have got him in trouble. It’s nice to see a more ‘human’ side of Prowl too! Bumblebee is making an interesting decision, and it’s one that I didn’t see coming. I can see the logic in what he is saying and also from the other side (no spoilers as to who he is talking to!)
The art continues to be excellent, with some nice scenes, and use of the darker sides of things.
The ending to this arc and the issue is pretty chilling and I am looking forward to the next step – it seems to be well measured and well told!
