Booknote: Transformers: Dark Cybertron, Vol. 1

Phil Jimenez,, Transformers: Dark Cybertron, Volume 1. San Diego, CA: IDW, 2014. ISBN: 9781613778913. 

In this volume, Shockwave brings forth his plan to bring back Nova Prime, a Cybertronian tyrant long ago exiled that many think is gone for good. It is the culmination of a 6-million year wait. Meanwhile,Cybertron is now ruled by Starscream, and the Autobots are divided. In addition, a dark portal opens, and a gigantic titan bot emerges. Will Shockwave's plan come to fruition, or will the Autobots be able to stop it?

This volume is the start of a new series for Transformers. I always enjoy reading Transformers comics, though at times I find some of the panels a bit too busy or cluttered. In spite of this issue, the art is pretty good, colorful. That is still an issue in this volume. The story does have a good mix of action and suspense, and it moves at a pretty good pace. This is one I would keep reading for now.

Overall, I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

Disclosure note is where I tell you that I read this as an electronic e-book review copy from the publisher via NetGalley. I got in exchange for an honest review, and there has been no compensation. There, we have kept The Man appeased once more.
