    While the writing is spot-on, I do have to say that the artwork is fantastic. Augustin Padilla can capture the G1 look while giving them modern tweaks that make the characters recognizable and outstanding. I have never attempted to draw a transformer, but I can imagine that it would be challenging with all of the details. He does a great job making it look easy. Read Full Review

    Dinobots meets Swords and Sorcery in the this standalone tale for King Grimlock. And whilst not overly dialogue heavy, the action speaks for itself with the tone of the book being firmly established. It was only a matter of time before we had a storyline like this and readers will enjoy what has been offered up by Steve Orlando and the art team. A good first issue and it will be interesting to see where it goes in the future. Read Full Review

    After his transport, Grimlock gets his first taste of action taking on what he calls “horse-cats” before encountering the tribe who plead for the Dinobot's help and inform him without defeating the Golden One they don't have the magic needed to send him home. Eventually, no doubt, Grimlock will be convinced to help. Until then we should get some fun of seeing the King of the Dinobots let loose on a world where he no longer must hold back.
