Some thoughts on this weeks Transformers from IDW Publishing. We’re 18 issues in!
“Run.” Calamity has befallen Cybertron. The only reasonable option for many bots is escape—leaving the planet in hopes of safety. Arcee and Greenlight need to get their mentee, Gauge, off-world to protect her, but first they’ll have to find a shuttle!Brian Ruckley (Author) Umi Miyao (Artist, Cover Artist)
Arcee, Greenlight and Guage are featured in this issue. It’s a good read and shifts the concentration away from the politics and the main players. Arcee takes on a leadership role here, and she is very protective of her mentee Gauge. Greenlight acts as a voice of reason, explaining things to Gauge and helping where he can.
Arcee is very interesting, and there are hints of her wetwork behind the scenes – it’s well done, and possibly something we may see in a future issue.
The art is very good, showing the disaster zone and the chaos behind it all. The scenes at the ship were shown very well too.
A good linking issue, which slows the manic pace we’ve had in recent issues – a palette cleanser!
