Heart of Darkness : Pretty good story I thought, quite nice arty backgrounds but TERRIBLE animation of the characters - what were they thinking.
Chaos is great. Varied, gripping and a real page turner, my personal favourite - the flashback of Orion Pax - great story and sowing the seeds for future issues no doubt. The best overall collection since Volume 4.

HASH(0x9455f8c0) out of 5 stars The Spike twist was very annoying 29 July 2013
By John B. Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Warning - Spoilers

For the most part, I'd give all the books in this series a 4 out of 5 stars, as they all had good art and decent stories, with just enough "bad" (whether a poor storyline of rushed plot) to keep from getting all five.

The handling of Spike Witwicky in this volume, however, is quite annoying and make the Autobots out to be hypocrytes, which I did not like. Essentially, Spike is a "bad guy" for killing Scrapper (a Decepticon just to be clear) and helping the Autobots take on the Decepticons in Asia, despite what an ignorant president had declared. I found neither action to be bad.

What's worse, however, are the Autobots' reactions. Optimus seems more eager to reach out to Megatron (who has billions of deaths on his hands and fully acknowledges that he will continue to kill), than he is to understand Spike's motives for "murdering" a Decepticon. Prowl, who secretly installed a secret backdoor into Kup's programming, comes to dispise Spike for his dishonesty, and Jazz, who had just recently killed a cop that was lowering his weapon (and got nothing more than a slap on the wrist for it) feels obligated to bring Spike to justice. Then, to legitimize making Spike the bad guy, the writers quickly add something about a deal with Swindle that was never even hinted at before this plot twist.

Meanwhile (the hypocracy continues) Sunstreaker, who conspired with the Decepticons to commit genocide, is accepted back into the Autobot ranks. Ironically enough, Sunstreaker was latter able to destroy Devastator BECAUSE Spike had earlier killed Scrapper, thus crippling the combiner.
HASH(0x9455fb18) out of 5 stars And a good set up for phase two 12 Oct. 2014
By William Foley - Published on Amazon.com

A thrilling conclusion to the last few years. And a good set up for phase two. The stories on earth get a little difficult to believe. but the chaos war is fun to read and edge of your seat exciting.

HASH(0x9455e960) out of 5 stars Love this series 20 Feb. 2014
By Nerv103 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Have been a huge transformers fan since I was a child, and will probably be for life. But I did get out of comic book collecting a while ago. When found these books though I had to start collecting them!! Each volumes has been put together really well and I have enjoyed the stories a lot. I really like the over sized format of the books and the hardcover editions look great on my bookshelf.

HASH(0x9455ea38) out of 5 stars The IDW Collection ends with a whimper presented as a bang 16 July 2013
By Trevor Jordan Monaghan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
From it's start the IDW run has been a mixed bag, Furmans run meandered a touch, All Hail Megatron excelled and Costas run was......bad. This volume takes the worst of Costas run and binds it into one neat package for everyone completing their collection. The poor dialogue, incomprehensible art and enormous plot holes run abundant. Culminating in the author actually flat out having his characters say he is using a poor story telling device. When Costa left the book he stated how he had never understood these characters despite having written them for several years and boy does it show here.

The books one saving grace is James Roberts two-part 'Chaos theory' arc. The quality of this book jumps beyond what we have the ability to measure. Serving as a bridge between 'Last stand of the Wreckers' and 'More than meets the eye' , Everything in these two issue shines and sets up clues that will shock you in volumes to come.

If IDW releases a Vol. 9 it will include 'Robots in Disguise' & ' More than meets the eye' and serve as a vast improvement over this volume.
If not, than Vol. 8 will serve as a terrible ending to a series that while not always brilliant deserved far more than what it got as an ending.
