Transformers: The War Within was a six issue comic mini-series set during the Cybertron Civil War before the Autobots and Decepticons arrived on Earth. In the story it tells of a data analyst called Optimus Prime being named as the Autobot Leader after the death of their previous leader. Unlike the Optimus Prime that we saw in the comics and tv series Optimus Prime in this story has doubts in his ability to lead and fight. It tells of Megatrons plan to concqueor Cybertron (surprise there). The character artwork in this book are different due to Transformers transforming into Cybertron vehicles and devices. However, the artwork despite different is excellent and they have included some of their design sketches within the graphic novel. Overall it is a good read for any one that enjoyed Transformers comics especially by Dreamwave.

How would you feel if one day you're sorting out data files not giving a DAMM about anything and all of a sudden you get told,
"You're the new leader of the Autobots!"
Optimus wasn't to keen on it! (I'm NOT kidding!!)
This is where it all began before the war hit Earth and how Optimus Prime became the leader that we all know and love!
If you are truly a Transformer Fan you must read this!! It's awesome!!
