Transformers Regeneration One #91

What do Earth and Nebulos have in common? Furman messed them up bad.

Bludgeon prepares his war machines, powered by the remaining Matrix energy in Thunderwing’s Pretender shell. Since we’re here to read about Transformers, they’re kind of lame. I’m sorry but I can’t do this like a regular review because so many of the problems I have with Furman are on display here, like the subplot overload. The specifics don’t help, either.

On Earth, Optimus is worried about what Galvatron is going to do with the Ark. That’s why he won’t go back to Cybertron even though Hot Rod’s talk of reunification with the…I’ll just call them the predecessors…is being met with angry protest by the Autobots, still struggling with what they did under the influence of Scorponok’s Gene Key. Hot Rod is rather fanatic about it and Kup’s as big a jerk as he ever was…at least under Furman and as usual nobody has the bearing to challenge him. Nebulos is full of people with emotional trauma, too. Somehow, Furman’s TFU is darker and more depressing that the regular IDW TFU. Does Simon Furman hate life this badly?

Look, do yourself a favor I’m apparently too stupid to do for myself. Ignore this title. It’s painful.

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)

    i can`t keep up with this anymore,it`s just plain stupid and contradicts the original run,i`ll bet even simon`s fans are disappointed.


    • For whatever reason they decided to ignore Generation Two (which is fine because I thought it was crap anyway–not that this is an improvement), and you wonder if he even looked back at the previous run. Plus I think he’s trying to get in more elements from the UK run now that more fans know what happened there.

        even though simon is ignoring g2 he is using g2 characters like jhiaxus,is simon out of ideas?uk and us elements are mixed in this fiasco,each issue is plain boring,when you finally get to a good part if there is one it`s to be continued,i predict the final issue will be as lame as watching sponge bob.
