More Nostalgia

Another anniversary that will take some of us back to our younger years. Transformers, the “Robots in Disguise”, are celebrating their 20th anniversary.

I picked up a Transformers’ comic called The War Within- The Age of Wrath written by Simon Furman and drawn by Joe Ng. The storytelling is good. The series takes place on Cybertron millions of years before the Transformers came to earth. The art is the real grabber here though. Joe Ng’s robots are awesome. The coloring is a bit dark, but the art makes up for it. I’ll buy this title again. It would be helpful, but not necessary, to read the previous two volumes of The War Within. These volumes are available in a trade paperback.

Now if I could just get a hold of an old Optimus Prime figure, the days of my youth would be complete.
