If you’re wondering what happened to the comic review yesterday…I forgot. I think I needed a goof-off day, anyway.
Transformers: Heart of Darkness #2
IDW Publishing (April 2011)WRITER: Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning ARTIST: Ulises Farinas COLORIST: Andrew Crossley ALTERNATE COVER: Casey Coller (art) & Joana Lafuerte (colors) LETTERER: Shawn Lee ASSISTANT EDITOR: Carlos Guzman EDITOR: Andy Scmidt
Arcee and Hardhead attack the Decepticons, but by tapping into the Dead Universe with his “Anti-Matrix” Galvatron turns Arcee away (sending Cyclonus and Scourge after her) and taps Hardhead’s memories to learned what happened on Gorlam Prime. After passing through the portal into the Dead Universe, Galvatron barely escapes an entity called D-Void and decides that only a team-up of Autobots and Decepticons can stop D-Void from doing to this universe what it did to that one. Arcee, however, escapes and prepares to warn the Autobots that he’s gone mad.
What they got right: Somewhere in all of the action they still find a way to push the story forward, learning the fate of the Dead Universe and Gorlam Prime. Also, while Galvatron is powerful, he isn’t the indestructible lunatic of previous incarnations. This may be my favorite Galvatron since the animated movie.
What they got wrong: To be honest I can’t think of anything.
Recommendation: When Mike Costa finishes his run on the main comic (which I hope is soon), put these two on there.
