Book Description

While there is much "CHAOS" on Cybertron, there's no less bedlam here on Earth as our remaining Autobots investigate the accusation that Spike, their trusted human ally, murdered a Transformer! Prowl and Jazz take center stage as the alliance between the two races are on the brink. Also includes the Prowl Spotlight.

1.0 out of 5 stars Two years built to THIS? 9 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a fan of Transformers comics, I'd stuck out Mike Costa's run on the ongoing book through some highs and lows.

While I think his run started well, Costa seemed to lose his way early on. There was a sense that his story was building to something, but the agonisingly slow pace he told it at was a real trial to endure.

What's in this book is the conclusion of the Earth-based portion of the story... and it is SERIOUSLY poor.

Brendan Cahill does a fair job on the artwork - even if I don't think he draws the faces of the characters particularly well. His backdrops and human characters (who Costa DID insist on using more than Optimus and chums) are all decent and nicely detailed, though, and he knows how to set the scene capably.

But the problem lies in Costa's storytelling. This book demonstrates once and for all time that he DOES NOT get these characters at all. Look at Prowl - he changes into a Police car. Fine. Except Costa seems to equate this to the character acting and speaking like a cop - which doesn't necessarily follow. Nor does his turn of phrase, at times. He actually says 'a dog whizzed on me this afternoon' at one point. Seriously? Ugh. This has been the bane of the entire run: a writer and - unforgivably - an editor who do not understand the voices of these characters at all.

The whole story progresses at a pretty excitement-free pace, ends weakly and doesn't give us the kind of resolution a two-year story arc deserves. After the excellence of the material collected in the 'Chaos Theory' trade, this is an unbelievable step down in quality. Even the atrociously drawn and sometimes painfully written Heart Of Darkness was better than this.

Avoid this garbage!

5.0 out of 5 stars Prowl-centric 1 Nov. 2013
By catlover524 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book focused a great deal on Prowl while the other Autobots are headed for Cybertron. It shows what Prowl does best: investigate. It also gives you the spotlight Prowl issue. If you like Prowl, get this book. Of course, if you've been reading the series that this book is a part of, then you'll want this, too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Solid read! 22 Feb. 2013

I loved the new direction they've taken with this series. How much can you really do with Robots that are either good or evil? A lot with a creative mind and proper storytelling. Continued excellence with the TF line in the eyes of this 80's kid fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Continues with an engrossing story. 18 Mar. 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
More than meets the eye... yup.

The IDW Transformers have been some of the better comics I have read. This one continues in the strain, with good writing and better art. This book focuses on the Autobots left behind on earth and their uneasy truce with the humans.

The writing remains great and the story is well served by focusing on Prowl, who is quickly becoming one of the most interesting characters in the series. However, Spotlight: Prowl is a little less interesting.
