    Transformers: Redemption of the Dinobots Paperback – April 17, 2018

    [​IMG]

    Explore the Dinobots like never before! Three stories chronicling the intense violence and redemption that have shaped the Transformers' most famous Autobot squad. It's a rollercoaster of death and absolution, drenched in atmosphere and action.

    John Barber and Livio Ramondelli craft three stories focused on the Dinobots--a group of dinosaur-mode Autobots with a dark history and many sins to atone for. These stories' dark tone, intense plot, and epic cinematic scope explore the Dinobot's powerful dynamic and give these characters a chance to escape the cycle of violence that fuels their missions on Cybertron and beyond!

    First, in Punishment, Optimus Prime and Windblade team up to stop a killer, but do they really want to, when all the victims are Decepticons? Then, in the title story, the Dinobots accept a dangerous mission into the Cybertronian wilds, but they get more than they bargained for, and are forced to reassess their beliefs in the process. Finally, in Salvation, the Dinobots are reviled for the things they've done. So when their greatest threat, Trypticon, appears, how much will they sacrifice for a world that hates them?

    Collects The Transformers: Punishment,The Transformers: Redemption, and The Transformers: Salvation.

    Wow that cover art is a mess. Maybe its because its really late, but I've been staring at the picture for ages and I still can't work out what's going on on the left side of the page above Slag. Is it another sword? Who's holding it?

    I believe it's Strafe's long neck and head breathing a stream of fire. Part of the issue is the image is so darn small and blurry. On a side note, I just finished reading this trilogy yesterday and I thoroughly enjoyed all of it, with the singular exception of a certain gratuitous character death in the last installment.

    I just finished Salvation and it was not great. Sloppy art and a confusing story collide to create a rather disappointing experience.

    Yup. IDW's making increasingly crummy decisions this year...was there some sort of editorial change?

    This year? They've been using Ramondelli for miniseries and one shots for years now.

    Same but to be fair its really bad image quality

    His art is good but mainly for covers I think, not story content

    His art is hardly "good". He is awful at perspective, faces, proportions and slathers that garbage autofilter dirt effect on all his crap. He's one of IDW's worst recurring artists, if not the worst.

    I've heard it said there are three aspects to a great comic artist:

    1) Awesome art.
    2) Turn work in on time.
    3) Be a pleasure to work with.

    I've also heard it said you only need to possess two of those aspects to remain employed.

    Take of it what you will.
