Optimus is back on Cybertron, leaving prowl in control of the Autobots on Earth. Humanity, however, has decided to side with Galvatron. Right in the middle of it all is Spike Witwicky, a man wanted by both the Autobots and the Decepticons. Neither faction cares much for him but both are on the hunt for him in this latest issue.
This issue is mainly action focused. It is filled with chase scenes as the Autobots and Constructicons attempt to find the one human that Prowl has a grudge with… Spike Witwicky. Since Spike betrayed the Autobots and went on a solo venture, he has been busy plotting the destruction of the Onyx corporation. His side kick is Jimmy Pink, but Jimmy is about to come face to face with larger than life opponents as both the Autobots and Decepticons are ready to move into position. For most of the issue Spike is running through the streets of Japan to lose his tail but this proves far more difficult than it sounds.
The colours in this story look great. Unlike previous issues, the majority of this issue takes place during the day. This has led the illustrations to have some rather impressive colouring. The colours on the transformers are illuminated with perfect precision. It really feels as though the sunlight is hitting the metals. The robot designs look great, they boast a large amount of detail whilst lighting up the page. The robots look far better than their human counterparts. The humans look far too scruffy and unimpressive, placing the focus of this comic on the transformers and the issues in their alliances.
This issue is a good read, one that shows the reader that the Transformer story is definitely not one that is for the kids only, this issue shows us that action can speak louder than words as it showcases some great action scenes which make for a fast paced issue of note.
