Transformers Generation 2 is a period of the franchise history generally overlooked. At that point in time, the early nineties, certain green skinned ninjas with artist names ruled the imagination of kids. However I would advise any Transformer fans to revisit this era that gave us not only some of the more articulated vehicle morphing robots but also the Marvel Generation 2 comic book.

Dark Designs collects the first six issues of the ill fated Marvel run and at the helm we have the faithful transformer scribe Simon Furman well known for his Transformer work in the UK and the US, treating the robots in disguise as a serious property rather than a thirty page toy commercial. And even after many story arcs it seems Furman cab still bring something fresh to the table.

Something fresh. Unicron has been laid to rest and the civil war is apparently over. So where do we go from here? How about a galaxy spanning empire that is colonising the universe, recreating their home world over and over. An empire that is Cybertronion in origin. Suddenly the war against the Decepticons looks like a small skirmish in comparison. So it's up to prime, Grimlock and the Autobots to spring into action against their new foe but wait, it seems Prime has other fears...premonitions of a greater threat from their past. Yes it's been done before but again it's building towards a new fresh enemy.

Of course we do get some past characters returning including Megatron himself who gets a chance to shine here compared to in the past when he was overshadowed by the likes of Shockwave, Galvatron and Scorponox (and even Rat Bat).Megatron is rebuilding the Decepticon forces so Prime may have more problems...or will he?

There are some negatives mind. The art for one.
