IDW Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #44 Review

The Not Knowing - With our charming and prestigious Comics Editor and News Administrator Va'al otherwise indisposed, it's fallen on me to take up the reigns for this week's review of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye #44. As warned already, this one will be spoiler heavy throughout, because there's no way I can adequately review this thing if I'm trying to not tell you things about it. Since some of the text gets front paged, I'm just typing up things to delay the start of the actual review. This is your Swerve recap. Need a review with no spoilers? Here it is: stop reading my stupid words and go buy this. Now. Stop, really, and go spend $4 right the hell now on this book. I'm serious, if you want to read this issue (you do), and you read this review beforehand, you will regret it. Don't have regrets, the internet can wait.

Good news to anyone getting into the comics recently, Comixology currently has a sale on a bunch of IDW trades (collections of individual issues) including Transformers trades.

And in other IDW comics news, we also have an Amazon listing for July 2016, with the release of the ninth volume in The Transformers ongoing. As volume 8 will end on issue #45, and this one is listed at 100 pages in total, it is possible that it will include up to the landmark #50 with the new page count - thought that would also exclude any additional material, unless it stops with the conclusion of the Conquerors arc in #49.
