5.0 out of 5 stars Awesometocracy!, 8 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Transformers: Autocracy (Transformers (Idw)) (Paperback)
Finally IDW's experimental 'digital only' mini series makes it into paper - and it's a read not to be missed by Transformers fans.
The series worked very well in its digital format, being released fortnightly in short condensed bursts, but as we all know, comics are best enjoyed on paper!
This series succeeds in many ways, the most obvious being Livio Ramondelli's striking and epic vision of these robots. His art brings an atmosphere and dynamic to the story, which would be difficult to convey with words. There are occasions where the bots look chiselled out if steel, and the colouring effects are out of this world.
The story (by Flint Dille and Chris Metzen) is equally fantastic, and charts the rise of Orion Pax (Optimus Prime) against all odds (a particularly insane Zeta Prime, and a ruthless Megatron. I'll not spoil the story, but it's one I'm surprised hasn't been told before. Look out for many references to Transformers the Movie too.
The writing is sharp, and not overly heavy, with some superb cameos (Sky Lynx in a show stealing scene, for example).
If you're a fan of Transformers, you owe it to yourself to get this. It would also be a great starting point for new readers. The series has made the jump from my phone to my bookshelf effortlessly.
