First Impression: OPTIMUS PRIME #1

sep160404-optimus-prime-1I’ve got a real soft spot in my heart for the classic Transformers cartoon. The Transformer’s universe of today, however, has gotten so big and confusing, I’d have no idea how to get into any of IDW’s comic series. This one doesn’t appear to carry too much baggage. A clean start with a single focus on a classic character.

“REVOLUTION is over-but the danger to Earth is just beginning. As OPTIMUS PRIME pulls Earth into the larger universe, he’s painted a target on Earth…and a new alien incursion begins when a corkscrew shaped craft drills into our world! The next evolution of TRANSFORMERS is here! OPTIMUS PRIME’s past on CYBERTRON haunts his present on Earth! Amazing artist Kei Zama (Scarlett Witch) makes her debut with veteran writer John Barber (Transformers)!”
