Transformers Robots In Disguise

The Transformed Man, Act 3: The Autonomy Lesson

Transformers: Robots In Disguise v.1

I’ve never liked the Transformers. The franchise never really got its hooks into me when I was a kid, and while I’ve tried to give it a shot as an adult, it’s never really clicked. But now, with the recommendations of almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale, I’ve found myself in possession of three years worth (and counting) of IDW’s More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics. I’m working my way through a story arc every week, and if I have to read about these robots, you’re coming with me.

This week, the Cybertronian Provisional Government gears up to rebuild society. So basically it's House of Cards if Kevin Spacey could turn into a truck.

The Transformed Man, Act 1: The Death of Optimus Prime

I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise never really got its hooks into me when I was a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it's never really clicked.

This week, it's The Death Of Optimus Prime, in which Optimus Prime does not actually die. Spoiler warning?

So I Guess I Have To Read These Dang Transformers Comics Now: Pay What You Want For 37 Issues Of ‘More Than Meets The Eye’

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #1

My first mistake was ever agreeing to do anything anyone asked me to. As long-time ComicsAlliance readers are probably already aware, I don't like the Transformers. There's no particular reason for it, it just never got its hooks into me when I was a kid like GI Joe did, and since my only real exposure to the franchise was when our former editor sent me to review the third Michael Bay movie, there hasn't been much to make me like it. And yet, whenever I bring that up, tons of people tell me that I need to read IDW's Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, because, according to them, it's actually one of the best comics going.

So finally, just to get 'em off my back I said "sure, I'll pick 'em up if they're ever in a Humble Bundle sale or something," which I assumed was a devious ruse. After all, there was a Transformers bundle less than a year ago, so surely there wouldn't be another one anytime soon.

That was last week. And now I have to read all these Transformers comics.

When more casual Transformers fans think of Prowl, a loyal police car 'bot with shoulder-mounted cannons usually comes to mind. So you can imagine my surprise when I cracked open a first-look at IDW's Transformers: Robots in Disguis

Are you a big Transformers fan? I've never been one. My knowledge of the enduringly popular Hasbro franchise about sentient robots who can turn into vehicles and weapons is limited to the toys I played with as a child (I still have my Fortress Maximus U JELLY?), the original animated series, and the 1986 animated film -- which I love unreservedly and without irony (Unicron > Galactus). Obviously the thre
