He does, however, manage to utilize human characters such as Circuit Breaker and Donny Finkleberg to inject some character; and continues to use Megatron, Shockwave and Prime to provide some semblance of continuity. The stories are still enjoyable, though haven't aged as well as Simon Furman's UK strips - with one exception. Buried in here is the two part Return to Cybertron. This story brings a real gravity to the Transformers Civil War, with a mad dictator, death camps and the Autobots presented as a resistance movement. It's still my favourite of Budiansky's work, and the star of the show here.
Don Perlin is the artist on almost all of the strips here, and I struggle to have much feeling either way on his work. There never seems to be any stand out panes, and a lot of it is workmanlike - on the other hand, it's always easily followed and never offensive. A bit middle of the road, which probably sums up this volume when taken as a whole. I'd still recommend it if you enjoyed them back in the day.
The book comes with a bit of background about how it came to be created, which is quite interesting.
Credit is deserved for creating an interesting plot around something which could have been seen as a cynical marketing exercise.
Did find I got tired of the constant changing of the characters eventually, but the comics did have a good run and there were some exciting stories with clever ideas.
