The year is 1939 and a twisted alliance between a hate-crazed dictator and a ruthless general has left Europe in flames, in chains. The world's only hope against the threat-the creation of an elite counterstrike force. Code name: G.I. Joe. But are even the Joes tough enough to take down this evil empire when it enlists the aid of a merciless army of alien war machines known as the Decepticons?

The appeal of this story for me was seeing Transformers in different modes. I won't spoil the story for you (the Dreamweave team have proved quite capable of that) but just to say little is made of this great opportunity (guess what, the art work doesn't help).Read more ›

Recommend this book to anyone who's not an uebergeek that gets offended if everything isn't as they remembered at age 7...My only complaint is that the "limited" size (6 regular comic issues) didn't allow for a full set of character development, or further adventures...true fans want more!!!
Please, DW, give us more!!!
The actual Transformers are given even less time in-frame. The Decepticons are featured way more than the Autobots and given a lot more dialogue for most of the story. And even when the Autobots are brought in, they talk far more than they actually fight. There are really only a couple pages of actual combat, and rarely between any of the Transformers themselves, with more action being Joes vs. a Decepticon or maybe two frames of Grimlock shooting something. Only a couple Autobots are even shown in vehicle form!
The biggest issue with the story has to be the art. It looks very cool, but the entire story is extremely dark and you can barely see any of the Transformers except for a head or an arm at times. Also, combat is not conveyed very well, with people just seeming to jump from place to place and characters receiving random injuries with no real explanation for them.
All in all, if you are a major Transformers or G.I. Joe fan (or both) then pick this up if you really need it. However, if you are just a casual reader, don't spend the ridiculous amounts this comic is going for, and find another series to hold you over.
