Make a list of every single DECEPTICON. Remove the warriors, the high-rankers, the loyal foot soldiers, the over-achievers, and anyone who's ever made even a modest contribution to The Cause. You should now have five names left. Welcome back, guys.
"Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye" takes a break from the longer narrative and tells a story about the five Decepticons that call themselves, "The Scavengers." The comic book is a character driven story with a lot of dialogue and not a lot of action. However, the comic book explores a number of interesting themes about soldiers returning home from war and the morality of selling off a prisoner. The book breaks up the dialogue with a number of funny moments that help to display the character's personalities. The comic book hatches an interesting plot by the end that provides quite a cliffhanger. The comic is one of the best out there today and this is a good opportunity to check out an issue that is removed from the long story. I highly recommend this comic book. Read Full Review
Though the plot is a little limited, James Roberts and Alex Milne turn out another amazing issue based almost solely on the strength of their characters. The Scavengers remain some of the characters who most directly tap the strengths of Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye and getting another full issue of their shenanigans feels like an industrial grade dose of MTMTE shot straight into your eyes. From implied musical episodes to Self Hating Decepticons (tm), the madcap originality and energy of the series is in full swing, narratively and visually. Ultimately I feel like this is bound to be a beloved chapter in an eventual trade but it's still a very fun single issue. It won't be replacing "Rules of Disengagement" for anybody, but if you're willing to take a month to soak in the fun of this universe - and let's face it, if you're reading this series you probably are - this will be a welcome addition to your collection.
