The World Isn't All Sunshine And Rainbows!
IDW's new Transformers series continues this week with a second exciting issue that sees the Autobots investigating into the mysterious death of Brainstorm.
In an effort to shield him from trauma, Rubble is sent away to spend the day at Wheeljack's lab working on a new type of Energon harvester. Come days end, he is reunited with Bumblebee, but as the two watch the Energon harvester begin its first round of work, the younger Autobot presents his mentor with numerous questions about the truth of life on Cybertron.
Realizing the days events have had a strain on his pupil, Bumblebee recommends Rubble stay focused on other things and not worry so much, even if he knows this could very well be the way of things for his student from here on in. But, not today.
At the same time, Megatron begins attempting to amass followers in his new plan for Cybertron. However, his protest is cut short following a failed assassination attempt on his life.
The latest issue of Transformers continues to expertly build on the mythology of this beloved 80's brand. Brian Ruckley continues to do a stellar job of filling in the gaps during the earliest days of Cybertron, while presenting readers with a truly emotional and heart wrenching tale that sees one young bot learning that life isn't all sunshine and rainbows.
At the same time, Angel Hernandez and Cachet Whitman present readers with loads of gritty, cold cast art that unveils the truth about the life of the Transformers as far from peaceable.
In short, Transformers continues to be one seriously fun read! A book that proves this brand has grown up with its audience, and is ready to tell some serious stories against the backdrop of Orion Pax and the peaceful Autobots as their world is about to change!
It's gritty, glamorous and all kinds of great!
Rating: 4/5 - "A book that proves this brand has grown up just like its original audience."
Transformers #2 is available now. Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
