Revolution – Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye spills out from IDW’s crossover vent of the year. Revolution continues to make its presence felt across the IDW universe. You can easily catch up with this new series, if you haven’t done so already. Many of the articles for Revolution can easily be found on the BGCBP website.
After the climatic conclusion earlier this week seen in Revolution we are at long last able to catch a breath. As Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye takes a step back from the brink of destruction. Transformers: More than Meets the Eye deals out far fewer battles and bloodshed through this issue than we might expect. The pace of at which it proceeds however continues to flow. Relying not so much on action and explosions but great writing and characterisation. With far more of an emotional tug than previous Revolution titles.
What makes Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye work is that it actually reads like a bad joke. As a human and a dire wraith team up with a group of Decepticons. The Scavengers (Krok, Crankcase, Fulcrum, Spinister and Misfire) a group of Decepticons who are a few screws short of being all there. Bringing together such a group of ragtag outcasts and oddballs Nick Roche and James Roberts take a look at the social side of these three species
In any other issue this would doubtless lead to open war but Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye brings these three species together. Not so much as the best of friends but more comrades in arms. As they find themselves focused on their similarities rather than what separates them. After reading Revolution its actually surprisingly heart warming to see this unity. This issue also serves as a reminder of just how much larger the IDW universe has become.
