Galvatron - The End!,
This review is from: Transformers: Time Wars (Paperback)First we had Target 2006, then Fallen Angel, then Legacy of Unicron, then Space Pirates and now...Time Wars.
The Galvatron saga was undeniably the highlight of the UK comic. Simon Furman always makes his work five star material, whether it be starting the story, carrying on through the middle or just simply finishing it off. Time Wars is a classic example of how well the greatest Transformers writer of all time was able to finish off an epic that had spanned well over a hundred issues.
Actions between present and future Transformers become too much for the fabric of space and time to handle and a terrifying rift opens which threatens to destroy Earth and Cybertron AND their futures, which would cause both the human and transformer race to become extinct.
An uneasy alliance is formed between two eras of Autobots and Decepticons and they realise that the only way to stop the chaos is to return Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge to their own time. Scourge is more than eager to go back, whereas Cyclonus...well you'll see for yourself and Galvatron goes over the edge even more than before, who is now intent on destroying all Transformers so he can rule the universe.
This is basically a great big massive free-for-all between the Transformers but its one that's pulled off so well. Its a brilliant story and a perfect ending to a saga that went on without fault or criticism for three years.
The many highlights of Time Wars include Megatron and Galvatron teaming up and just dismantling the Wreckers and the Mayhem Attack Squad, the return of Ravage (who has a fairly major role in this book), the never before seen insanity of Shockwave and of course, the highly anticipated battle between the one and only Optimus Prime and Galvatron.
Simon Furman is unquestionably the man who understands Transformers better than anyone and it shows. This is a five star finish to a five star classic. Full credit goes to him for putting together the greatest Transformers saga ever written. The artwork goes without saying. All of the artists have put in lots of effort into making the story beautifully illustrated, especially during the very end of the book which has to be seen to believed.
Awesome. Simply awesome.
