Only okay
Revolution: Aw Yeah! #1 - Art Baltazar,Art Baltazar

Art Baltazar does Revolution for children.   It's fun but I'm not as crazy about this art in here as some of his other work.   I also am not crazy about the story; some of it is cute, but not as cute as some of the other works he's done.   

 

So... Three stars.   Might wait to read this on Hoopla or take it from the library.   Bought in a buy one, get two free sale at Newburys.

Alright, alright, I'll get out of bed
TRANSFORMERS TIMELINES FALL SPECIAL SHATTERED GLASS #3 - Benson Yee

I was lazing and rereading this because I though it would make a nice pre-birthday gift to myself.    And it was as good an excuse as I could think of not to get out of bed!   

 

Fun times.   It's the mirror-verse for Transformers, and the Autobots are far more brutal than the Decepticons ever were.   Poor Rumble!   

 

I don't quite understand why it took Starscream so long to decide to attack the platform, not the ship, but even he says he's a fool for not thinking of it earlier.   And Megatron thinks he's a genius for thinking of it at all, so apparently it wasn't something most people thought about?   After that, they all make up for it by deciding how to plan the attack. 

 

Cliffjumper being from the 'regular' universe also makes sense: it means you have someone from a familiar universe who's more reliable and everything has to be told to him so it doesn't come off as info dumping. 

 

Love this comic.  I have two copies and I refuse to part with either because it's rare to get these.

So much love for Soundwave
Optimus Prime #5 - John Barber,Kei Zama

Thundercracker takes a backseat in this issue, and I was about to be like 'eh, I guess last issue was an anomaly.'   I'm not entranced with the colors, or the Optimus Prime storyline  - even in the past - as some people are.   (I know; someone contacted me on LT and was talking to me about this.   And all the respect to that, it's just not my jam.)

 

However, Soundwave finds a brilliant solution to the Sharkticons, and I love him so much for that last page!   So, so much!   

 

I guess I'll be continuing with this series after all!

Oh, Thundercracker, you make everything better
Optimus Prime #4 - John Barber,Alex Milne,Kei Zama

Why did I pick this up in print?   Because I got it for free.   It's was a buy one, get two free, and you could get up to twenty comics free.  I was trying to pare things down, and found for free?  I wanted to continue with this series.  I just had a hunch.   

 

And I've learned one thing: Seekers make things better.   Thundercracker's response to Marissa's comment about her mother being at the bottom of a bottle?   "Is she very small or is the bottle very-" and Marissa cuts him off.   Also, someone should tell him parenting dogs=/=parenting a child.  You don't usually have to tell the kids to stop humping people in public.   

 

Still, Thundercracker made this series work for me.   The war with the Junkions is getting started, and this is also helping.   Still, I find Thundercracker doing it for me - which, duh.   Oh, wait, no, I think I only told one person on here about this: I have a thing for Thundercracker and Skywarp in the Shattered Glass-verse, and thus something for TC in IDW - the publisher of these comics - because he's all cozy with the humans now.   At least Marissa.   And he loves his puppy Buster.   It's all too cute.   

 

Right.   And there's a war going on.

Vigilem
Transformers: Till All Are One #8 - Mairghread Scott,Sara Pitre-Durocher

Carcer is actually a construct, hiding Vigilem, Liege Maximo's Titan.   And Liege Maximo is chaotic neutral in the Covenant of Primus, but seems to be eeeeevil in all the other universes.   Which is fine by me: he makes quite a striking Prime who's out to vindicate both himself and Vigilem.    

 

The things Vigilem does to get to his master, to free him, are truly chilling.   And I find myself more interested in this series than ever.   Whether dealing with politics, or just trying to keep most of the characters alive, this series never fails to thrill me.
