Oh boy, there's a panel/page (well, more than one, but one in particular) in here which is slobber-some.
Review coming on Tuesday!

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Script (W)Rap

Postby Va'al » Mon Jul 15, 2013 2:25 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Transformers writer extraordinaire Simon Furman has updated his blog with a Script (W)Rap for this week's IDW release: ReGeneration One #93! Check out the commentary below, and visit Furman's blog here for more.

SCRIPT (W)RAP – REGENERATION ONE #93
While not exactly all change, change is in the air as Transformers: Regeneration One #93 hits the stands (Wednesday July 17th to be exact). And I’m not just talking about the change of artist! But, before I delve into another post-script ramble/tease, as is my wont, it’s time to welcome aboard (pencil) artist Guido Guidi. Of course, Guido’s no stranger to either Transformers or Regeneration One (having worked extensively for both Dreamwave and IDW on their TF titles and supplied the variant ‘B’ covers for RG1), but it’s some consolation for the loss of Andrew (no, he’s not dead, just busy - in a kind of flat out, full time way - on an upcoming kids’ animated TV show) that we gain Guido’s amazing and detailed pencils. Guido really hits the ground running with #93, affecting a seamless transition (aided and abetted by the inks of Stephen Baskerville and the colours of John-Paul Bove). Trust me, this and the next few issues are gonna knock your socks off and shatter trousers in trans-continental style. And Andrew’s with us for the duration in one form or another, continuing as ‘A’ cover artist and returning for #100 to see us out in fitting style. Right, onwards with the issue itself. As usual, spoiler alert, first. My intention is always more to tease than reveal, but if you’d rather delve in stone cold, cease reading now. Okay, so, #93, phew, what a packed issue. With both Galvatron and Bludgeon on the last legs of their respective journeys to Cybertron, with starkly different agendas (which we delve more into here), matters build to a pre-invasion head. For a start, there’s a rather disgruntled Starscream, the not-as-helpless-as-he-appears fellow traveller aboard the Ark. Voice back – check. Attitude back – check. Need for payback back – check. Galvatron is in for a rude awakening! And then there’s Bludgeon. Having allied himself with Soundwave, you’d think it was a simple matter of conquest on his mind. Not so. There’s a far darker agenda simmering behind that skull face. One that we peel back and reveal this issue. It’s a shocker and a portend of things to come. Plus, Wreckers action, Dinobot action and Primus action. Yep, Primus! But… he’s gone, isn’t he? Deceased? An ex-god? Well… Remember I mentioned that change was in the air. It’s coming for Hot Rod… in a big way… and it begins right here. All i can say is… hoo boy! You can check out the official IDW preview here.

I seriously can not help but point out that Galvatron's shadow isn't being cast on Ultra Magnus who's own shadow isn't being cast on the ground.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review

Postby Va'al » Tue Jul 16, 2013 5:00 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
New Look
(Spoiler free-ish)


Synopsis

BATTLETIDE! Opposing factions and forces meet head on, as the battle for
Cybertron (and indeed the future) begins in earnest. BLUDGEON, SOUNDWAVE, GALVATRON, STARSCREAM, and—caught in the middle—the Autobots, most crucially their greatest warrior ULTRA MAGNUS! And HOT ROD meets his maker. Literally.

Image
Or even legen...


Story

In issue 92, Hot Rod and the Dinobots were headed towards Cybertron's core, as the surface was under the attack of Soundwave and the Decepticons, with the Wreckers and Ultra Magnus defending their home planet. Meanwhile Bludgeon and Galvatron are on their way too, and that's where we start with issue 93.

Image
Insert obvious joke here


And it's a Furman-tastic issue at that: major players play major roles, with favourite characters becoming really really interesting and the plots seeding what might develop with issue #0, too. And, finally, we're getting closer to the heart of the events, with everyone almost on Cybertron.

Image
Gettit? Heart? Core?


The Bludgeon aspects of the story are only briefly worked on, but the multiple strands do seem to be converging into one single narrative. Same with Galvatron, though there are some twists, albeit predictable.

Image
We all know what happens when you monologue like that


The stories all seem to blend really well, here, and the narrative is becoming more and more cohesive and unified, without losing a degree of originality. And old-time readers and fans will get several kicks out of references, subtle and explicit, to some previous work in the franchise!

Art

This issue marks Guido Guidi's debut on the ReGeneration One artistic team, at least for the interior art (as he provided all B covers in the run so far). And it's good. Real good. There's one panel in particular which I personally adored, working amazingly well with Furman's 'timey' script, and that I'll leave for readers to discover.

Image
What? What can you see?!


Not all the credit goes to Guidi, though: Baskerville's inks make the pencilwork as similar to the previous style as possible, while still keeping their original take on it, and JP Bove's colours, always the highlight of these issues, really help in the effect, retaining their usual eye-sparkling qualities.

Image
That's space, and it looks mouth-watering


The artistic continuity, which seems to be the new fan-thing, is kept beautifully intact, and Guidi, Baskerville and Bove do a great job of making everything blend gorgeously together. Mowry's lettering is consistent if not overly creative, but everything just works.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

This is Furman at his best. The characters are there, the plots are there, the references are there. It's all there. There are hints at several continuities that have been explored, or might still be, and it all works so nicely with the new artistic team.

Image
The old-style editorial notes are there, too!


Definitely pick this one up, even if it's just for the one panel that I still will not spoil. Or the other one. Or that one. Though that one's cool too. Oh, and that one's nice as well. I think you know where I'm going with this..

It looks like Guidi is actually a lot closer to Wildman by himself than I originally thought!

I knew they'd be around, but was not expecting this.
Though it is Furman. :D
