    It’s kind of good back story on the Dinobots on Cybertron. If you’re that interested in them., April 12, 2014

    It picks off from the previous chapter Rage of the Dinobots, focusing the Dinobots dealing with the people of Cybertron in a survival crisis where danger lurks everywhere on the planet and new secrets are uncovered. I was expecting it to be more like the Fall of Cybertron game where the Dinobots do more action but what the heck, so far it’s how the story goes and if you are interested in what happened between the seasons of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters season then you might want to pick this book up.

    Having read through the series as it came out in standard comic book form, I can honestly say I was disappointed at every last turn. Fascinating characters such as the Forged and the Fall of Cybertron Insecticons were sloppily introduced as two-dimensional “bad guys” so that the Dinobots could line them up like pop cans in a shooting gallery and mow them down only a few pages later. The only worthwhile inclusion in the entire series was that of the oft-ignored female Autobots (such as Chromia and Firestar). The art was sloppy, jagged and of the quality you’d expect from one of those 8-page “comic books” given out as promos inside a toy package – completely forgettable. The writing was bland and the Dinobots seem to be little more than barely restrained, angst-riddled murder machines who throw the Autobot code out the window so long as they get some payback in. What could have been a much more expanded and interesting story with lots of character development potential became 8 issues of poorly written backfill over the p(l)ot hole near the end of the Prime series.

    Save your money for something by James Roberts or John Barber. This is just embarrassing.

    This graphic novel takes place on Cybertron, the dying planet. The war is done and the energon supplies are low. Many different groups of bots appear, but the Dinobots are heavily featured.

    The first half of the story is a mystery with the bots trying to find the cannibal murderer, killing and then stealing energon from bots.

    The second half features some interesting organic beasts that I really enjoyed seeing battle.

    There’s a lot if really cool action shots in this book, but I was kind of lost while reading. I wasn’t familiar with the characters. If you only know if the Transformers movies, I wouldn’t suggest this book unless you’re ready to meet a new world.

    Although visually stunning, I didn’t think the stories or characters had much depth. I give this graphic novel a 3/5.
