I'm a well read technosexual who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.

Eh to Revolution, the art is amazing, and the storyline is damn fine.

Transformers (2011-) #57 (Transformers: Robots In Disguise (2011-)) - John Barber, Livio Ramondelli

Setting up Revolution, which... boo.    I really despise Revolution. 

 

Then again, the art was even better than I expected: this artist tends to go very tight, very dark, and the lightness was like a breath of fresh air.   He doesn't completely loosen up, but he loosens up enough that I found I was relieved.  Sometimes too much of his art can make me tense up, and it wasn't the case here. 

 

As for the storyline: it sets up another epic power struggle, one I'm incredibly interested in seeing play out eventually.   I fear it'll happen in Optimus Prime - he has his own series now - which I'm not that interested in - or wasn't until I ended up reading this issue. 

 

Loved most of it, but hated the aspects that tied into Revolution, enough so that I knocked off one star. 

 

Now to decide if I'm gonna play with the Prime series or not... hmm....

 

I also don't have any more Transformers for at least a month, which makes me sad :(
