    The comic is a good one and one of the more surprisingly deep comics of the year. It features Scioli's unique style of storytelling and art to create something that is so much more than the toyline it's based on. Here's hoping for a long run and a deeper dive into the fascinating world that's been created. Read Full Review

    Go-Bots #2 is a clever re-imaging of the Go-Bots franchise, looking at humanity's relationship with technology and labour. A good book although the artwork may be polarising due to it's distinctive style and look. Read Full Review

    Leader-1manages to survive the events of the last comics and escape his captors. Another group of heroic Go-Bots meets and plan to fight back. 

    We find out that the bloodlust levels of some of the Go-Bot's were increased to make them willing to fight each other but there were other Go-Bots that had already been tampered so that they could be used for military operations. The plan backfires and the safeguards installed in the Go-Bots to protect humanity fail as the more aggress more
