    In short, this issue is very easily worth a read. Even partial Transformers fans have an active interest in Megatron, and the character is done relative justice within these pages. Read Full Review

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who digs Transformers or kick ass machines/robots. If ever you wanted to know how Megatron keeps an ever growing army of evil robots in line then this is the book for you. If Megatron is one of your favorite Transformers then this is the book for you! The writing of the Spotlight series as I've noted before is excellent, exemplifying what makes each character great and this is no exception. If anything this issue raises the bar for those to follow. Nick Roche handles both the art and writing and the art is definitely good. It isn't totally mind-blowing per say but it does a great job portraying the characters, fits the genre and meets expectation at the very least. Here I'd say Nick's characterization and quality dialogue outshine really everything else involved in this issue; this guy gets Megatron, of that there is no doubt. If ya like great comics then do yourself a favor and read this nice, thick slice of awesome sauce Read Full Review

    I may not know what's been going on in TRANSFORMER comics lately but this issue makes me want to. As a one-shot, you can easily jump in and figure out what must have gone on before. With Megatron returning after a three year absence where he was destroyed, seeing how he adjusts to his new form and the status of the Decepticons is fascinating. We get a lot of inner monologue from Megatron. It feels a little strange at times but serves to establish his motives and what we can expect in future issues. The art worked for the story. Seeing damage happen was great but there were moments the color felt like too much. This issue isn't just focusing on Megatron as it's really a major confrontation between him and Starscream. If you've been reading TRANSFORMER comics this is a great place to see the return of Megatron and what he plans to do next. If you haven't been reading, you just might want to start after this issue.
