Transformers Regeneration One #93 Synopsis
Transformers Regeneration One #93 Review
Review Submitted By: Tim Formas
It’s about time. After spinning its wheels with dragging plots for a year and a dozen issues, Regeneration One #93 delivers the action and plot twists we’ve been waiting for.
Last issue, Cybertron descended into chaos as Soundwave continues sending a subsonic signal that is causing restlessness among the inhabitants. Meanwhile, his actions bring about the destruction of all of the long-range watch stations ensuring that the Autobots have no way of knowing if danger is approaching. Underneath Cybertron in the Sonic Canyons, Hot Rod and the remaining Dinobots head deeper towards the planetary core to determine if Grimlock survived his fall from the final battle with Scorponok. In Regeneration One #93, many of the Decepticon sub-factions begin to enact their plans to defeat the Autobots and conquer Cybertron. Meanwhile, Hot Rod and the remaining Dinobots’ search comes to a surprising end.
Simon Furman is the Simon Furman of old in this issue, delivering both action and some great lines. Interactions between characters were well delivered and spot on with the personalities we expect from the Generation One/Regeneration One iteration of these characters, especially the Galvatron/Starscream scenes. After seeing Starscream as a mute the majority of the series, it was fantastic to see Starscream back to his old self and see the reaction of Galvatron as a result. Plot twists were also written in well, with surprise returns, surprise deaths, and several cliffhangers that promise the action will continue into next issue.
Guido Guidi takes over for Andrew Wildman on art and impresses. While adapting his art to Wildman’s general style, Guido’s characters look a little less organic and more robotic. Therefore, the characters resemble more of a mix of their Generation One cartoon selves and their Marvel/IDW selves. John-Paul Bove’s colors match well with Guido’s art and helps to enhance it even further.
When Regeneration One was announced, fans were excited that we would finally get resolution to the old Marvel series. Over the past year, we’ve had several surprises but the series meandered through dragging plot lines such as the Grimlock vs. Scorponok ordeal. Regeneration One #93 changes everything and brings all but one storyline back to Cybertron to begin the likely conclusion to the Regeneration One saga. For one of the first times in a year, I wait anxiously for the next issue.
