“If you want to break someone — mentally, physically, emotionally — wait until they’re happy. Let them live and love and thrive. Once they recognize the value of a life well lived… THAT’S when you move in for the kill. Because you can’t take anything from someone who has nothing to lose.” –Tarn

The Decepticon Justice Division has the crew of the Lost Light pinned down (except for the crew back on the shop who are busy staging a mutiny) and Megatron’s acting very strange. Click the jump for preview pages and a review of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #51.

Review and Preview: Transformers Holiday Special

If you’re looking for one of those sappy, cheesy, awkward holiday specials, this is not that book. If you’re looking for serious, gut-wrenching, intense drama…this is also not that book.

The Transformers Holiday Special is ridiculously fun. It pokes fun at itself and any other holiday trope it can reach, but the writing and artwork are some of IDW’s best (not surprising considering who wrote and drew it.) Click the jump for preview pages and a review!

Make a list of every single Decepticon. Remove the warriors, the high-rankers, the loyal foot soldiers, the over-achievers, and anyone who’s ever made even a modest contribution to The Cause. You should now have five names left. Welcome back, guys.
