The Transformers #11
IDW Publishing (September 2010)WRITER: Mike Costa ARTIST: Guido Guidi COLORIST: J. Brown LETTERER: Neil Uyetake ALTERNATE COVERS: Don Figeroa “COVER A” COLORIST: Andrew
Bumblebee tries to convince Thundercracker to help stop the Combatacons, and pretty much hits a brick wall. Luckily for the Autobots, that wall eventually comes down and he ends up helping in the battle. Also helping is Cosmos jamming the satellites so the Autobots can fight in robot mode. However, the battle comes close to China…which is guarded by the Predacons!
What they got right: While I don’t like this artificial handicap Costa has placed on the Autobots, at least he has ways around it. The art is well done, especially the battle sequences.
What they got wrong: So do all the Asian dictatorships have their own combiner team? Who’s working Vietnam, the Seacons?
Recommendation: I think Costa is finally getting it right, as I’ve been saying at least the whole arc. I just hope he doesn’t disappoint me.
I think he just enjoys doing that.
