Transformers More Than Meets the Eye #4 Synopsis
Transformers More Than Meets the Eye #4 Review
Review Submitted By: Tim Formas
More Than Meets the Eye #4 does it again. The group behind More Than Meets the Eye has put together another great effort, not losing a step from what we’ve seen over the first three issues. All the elements are there, right for our enjoyment.
Last issue, the crew of the Lost Light were able to track down and eliminate the Sparkeater that was tormenting the ship and had already killed several of the crew. Meanwhile, Tailgate makes a decision to become a Decepticon after having Cyclonus fill him in regarding the Great War. In More Than Meets the Eye Issue #4, Tailgate informs Rodimus of his decision and we see the ensuing actions taken. Meanwhile, Ratchet, Drift, and Pipes head to Delphi after receiving a strange, new datalog from Ironfist’s/Fisitron’s Wreckers Declassified.
James Roberts continues to shine in his writing. He manages to tie this issue into Last Stand of the Wreckers, referring to a new datalog receive from Wreckers Declassified. This datalog receival is the whole reason that several Autobots head to Delphi to investigate. It’s not the only past plot point touched, as Drift’s Decepticon past is also recalled. This is the first issue that James moves away from really putting the entire main cast into the story, instead preferring to introduce some new and returning characters who may or may not stick. Regardless, the turnout of his writing is the same: simply fantastic. Everything we love from James: Action, Comedy, Suspense, all still there. Swerve already makes his dream come true, to slapstick results. Rodimus discusses the merits of the journey with Ultra Magnus, and drama ensures on Delphi. Speaking of Delphi, Roberts hints at a presence of a patient at Delphi throughout the issue. In a startling cliffhanger to More Than Meets the Eye #4, that identity is revealed and more. This reveal is so dramatic, I almost stood up and clapped for the last page. On top of that, the fate of several Autobots hangs in the balance as we head into the next issue.
The art is what we’ve come to expect out of the series. Alex Milne continues art duties, with Josh Burcham again on colors. Perfect art and colors for the tone of the story.
What more is there to say? This series owns me. Given the cliffhanger, this next month will be a very long wait. Is it May yet?
Overall Rating: 4.5
