Just got back from the Comic book shop with issue #1 of the comic book adaptation of the 1986 Transformers movie, which is titled "The Gathering Storm" I don't believe that spoiler tags needed, since there's nothing new in here story-wise. Still, if you do not wish to be spoiled, don't read what's next! The Good: Superb art by Don and stellar colors by Josh. Beautiful cover art with thick matte paper with glossy titles. Truly beautiful! Some new viewing angles on some classic scenes. It's nice to see how Don manged to tackle several scenes in one frame, making it look almost alive. I found mself hearing the voices in my head as I read through the book. It's almost a verbatim adaptation of the movie. Budiansky added a few words here and there, but nothing too dramatic. Some may actually see this as a negative point. We'll let the new movie cover new grounds THis is a classics and to me, classics should remained untouched. The crew did a fine job in depicting this now 20-year old movie. The Bad: It read really really fast. The pacing was insanely fast! I found myself at the last page in a matter of minutes, wanting more. I noticed an error where Shrapnel and Kickback are munching away at the gates of Autobot City. The two text bubbles should be switched around. What the hell is up with Arcee and Springer's eyes on page 10? At firt I thought that they had visors on, but on several occasions, many Autobots were drawn with really big eyes. This is my only gripe about this issue. It looks pretty odd... I find it strange that Don would do that, but oh well... Hopefully it'll only get better in issue #2. The ugly: That Nightbeat Profile preview at the end makes me want to stab my eyes with sharp objects. Did the artist use MS Paint? GAH! Verdict: I give this issue an 8.5/10. It's a great trip down memory lane with some nice added touches and a good way to set up the mood for the DVD release of the TFTM 20th anniversary edition!
