In the last issue Ratchet, Drift, and Pipes were on Delphi investing a horrendous plague that had infected Pipes. As Pipes lay dying as the medical team tries to save him- two Decepticons attack! Fortress Maximus awakes from a very long coma unhappy, ready to handle some Decepticons. Things got crazy, but that’s just the beginning.
When I comes to drawing bots I precarious conditions or situations; IDW’s team certainly has a way that brings it life. Another issue with fantastic artwork that is fresh and yet still has that classic feel to it. The only thing that bugged was a few scenes were we get just the head of Ratchet and/or Pharma as these two characters are very close in appearance. However, it’s understandable as both characters are medics of the same era.
The story just blew me away. We got some nice twists in the story that kept me wondering who the bad bot was. The dialogue moves the story in the right direction. We get some story of what’s happening back on the ship, but Ratchet’s visitation is where it gets crazy. It’s another fun story from IDW and I can’t wait for the next one.
