    The attempts at tackling some serious issues are similarly muddled, but on the other hand, its great to see the attempts being made. This disregard for the constraints of a toy-based comic are what made Furmans original UK work so impressive, and its good to see that he seems to be applying it here, even if the result is a little fuzzy. Transformers has always been about war, and here Furman looks at a side previously ignored in the Transformers mythos, but which is all too prevalent in our world: prisoners of war, and the abuse thereof. Obviously a comic about colourful giant robots based on a kids toy line isnt going to be the place to look for sharp socio-political commentary, and that contradiction leads to a frustrating lack of clarity as the issues are hinted at but generally avoided, but the fact the issues are there, and are dealt with even to such a minor extent, lends this issue of Energon a level of depth and complexity that previous issues have been sorely missing.
