Optimus Prime versus Megatron! Autobots versus Decepticons!

At the dawn of the conflict, battle lines are drawn and sides are set… now legends will be made.

The war that would define a planet begins in earnest — and its revelations will shake the Transformers' world to the core!

Rating: 4 1/2 stars


As I read this, I couldn't help hearing the voices for the characters from the original 1980s animated series. Nearly all of them are in this and a few more, from the Autobots to the Stunticons, it's like watching an episode of Transformers.

The war continues between the Autobots and the Decepticons but this time Megatron has devised a plan to destory the Autobots. While Megatron readies his troops, the Autobots have no idea they are soon to be attacked.

However, despite all appearances, it seems Megatron may not truly be the one planning everything and their invasion may doom them all.

I like this, the writing is good and the story was able to include more dynamics that you can't necessary find in a episode due to time constraints. The artwork for this is also really good the darker tones go well with the story.

This is definitely worth reading if you're a fan of Transformers Generation 1.
