Charity website Humble Bundle has once again delivered on giving Transformers fans a great deal on Transformers comics today as they're rolling out a bundle of IDW comics featuring both Transformers and G.I. Joe! If you're the type to not like crossovers of the two though, no worries; as that's not the focus of this -- in fact there seems to be rather little focus, with comics ranging from the main IDW Generation 1 continuity (with the likes of More Than Meets The Eye and Till All Are One) to the Live-Action IDW comics to the Regeneration One maxi-series! This does mean that if you've been wanting to dip your toes into some of IDW's Transformers material but you didn't know where to start or what universe to go for; this could be for you! And, just to make this more impressive; the full thing is a whopping $741 worth of digital comics for only $25 -- and proceeds go to the Hasbro's Children Fund! Check out the list of which Transformers comics are in the Humble Bundle below, then click the image to buy some of the bundle if you like and tell us if you did in the forums!

Review of IDW Hasbro Universe's Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #4

Not First Strike, The Other Crossover
A Quick Review of Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #4

Free of too many spoilers. There's at least one.
Transformers News: Review of IDW Hasbro Universe's Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #4
See, right there. It goes just before Optimus Prime #1

The partial-crossover event that leads into First Strike carries on, though as things have progressed it actually appears this story fills a time-gap between Revolution and Optimus Prime in the greater IDW Hasbro Universe's continuity. That's not really what's important here though. If you read my review of Wrath of Karza #3, you'll have to excuse me if I repeat myself because many of the same feelings have carried over to this fourth installment (out of five) for this mini-series. There's action, there's character building, there's good art, and most importantly there's fun awaiting readers of this latest comic from writers Cullen Bunn and Jimmy Johnston.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Hasbro Universe's Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #4
Why is there a centaur? Yes.

The character roster has branched out on the "bad guy" side of things, with the well-tread Acroyear armies of the Microspace Ministry of Defense now being supplemented with other various creatures inspired by the old Micronauts toyline. This enhances the IDW Micronauts world in a charming way by showing readers a diverse range of miniature alien life that works because this is a universe that doesn't really need a bunch of rules to follow. Microspace is a universe created by one of the Thirteen Primes and is inhabited by beings that can merge with other beings, flying reptilian things, biomechanical androids, and even time travelers. It's nice to see the authors being fearless when it comes to adding to the roster regardless of the general lack of focus placed on Microspace in the scope of the larger IDW Hasbro Universe.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Hasbro Universe's Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #4
That's the spoiler, so sorry, but maybe it will make you care?

Of course you're browsing Seibertron.com and it'll be hard to continue justifying comics reviews for books that don't have Transformers in them. With that said I'll just cut to the chase, and pardon the spoiler - yes, there are some Transformers in this book (like Jazz pictured above) and they have a prominent role in the later stages of this issue's plot. They're used in a fun way with Bunn and Johnston staying true to their generally established characterizations while also providing dialogue for them that goes plenty beyond the average/low expectations that one would have for "Transformers writing in a piece of media where they're supplementary". Just like the playfulness that's inherent with the new denizens of Microspace that have recently appeared, the Transformers are used in an entertaining fashion.

Ah shucks, made the ManBearPig joke last review

The art is well executed once again, with familiar name Andrew Griffith taking the helm for most of the pages while Ron Joseph lends an assist for two pages in the middle focusing on Shazraella. They're complemented by David Garcia Cruz on colors, who takes advantage of the varied environments utilized in the story. Different palettes are used throughout the outdoor scenes that give a dusty, sandy, and war torn look. Meanwhile, cleaner blacks and grays are seen throughout interior settings which helps the delightful weirdness of the books' characters to stand out in contrast even more. Tom B. Long is on letters and provides all the THWA-WOMPS that something with this much action needs.

A few covers are available this time, including the Tom Whalen variant featuring Baron Karza if you're looking to collect that set of various IDW books. As always, you can see all the covers and credits in our database page for Wrath of Karza #4.

Verdict
Transformers News: Review of IDW Hasbro Universe's Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #4
It's not that bad, actually!

This keeps up the fun that I've come to expect from IDW's Micronauts and adds some additional Transformers flavor to the mix this month. Overall, this is a solid chapter in a story that I look forward to seeing the ending of. The final page makes it clear that readers can expect the fifth and final issue of this mini-series to have some ramifications on a character that solicitation-text readers will know is set to feature in First Strike over the next couple of months, but I do admit it felt a little underwhelming due to knowing this in advance. Maybe if the release schedule wasn't running a full month behind for this series that would have been different.

The only real critique that makes me put this one a notch lower than issue 3 stems from some of the panel layouts in the latter stages. Karza and Oz have a confrontation that feels more like a circular conversation, but this isn't really the art within the panels causing it. Rather, it's the amount of panels covering others in ways that feel understandable but end up coming off a little cramped in a spot or two. This takes what should be happening in a more open environment and focuses it a little too narrowly for my tastes. Granted, this could just be due to how we reviewers have to consume sample copies on digital documents and the print edition won't have this perception carry over. Here's hoping it doesn't, and I hope you'll give this series a shot if you haven't!

Penguin Random House has a new listing for Transformers: Redemption of the Dinobot Trade Paperback while Amazon has a pre-order up for the same collection which collects The Transformers: Punishment,The Transformers: Redemption, and The Transformers: Salvation by John Barber and Livio Ramondelli. You can find all the pertinent information below with Amazon listing a release date of April 17, 2018.

Explore the Dinobots like never before! Three stories chronicling the intense violence and redemption that have shaped the Transformers' most famous Autobot squad. It's a rollercoaster of death and absolution, drenched in atmosphere and action.

John Barber and Livio Ramondelli craft three stories focused on the Dinobots--a group of dinosaur-mode Autobots with a dark history and many sins to atone for. These stories' dark tone, intense plot, and epic cinematic scope explore the Dinobot's powerful dynamic and give these characters a chance to escape the cycle of violence that fuels their missions on Cybertron and beyond!

First, in Punishment, Optimus Prime and Windblade team up to stop a killer, but do they really want to, when all the victims are Decepticons? Then, in the title story, the Dinobots accept a dangerous mission into the Cybertronian wilds, but they get more than they bargained for, and are forced to reassess their beliefs in the process. Finally, in Salvation, the Dinobots are reviled for the things they've done. So when their greatest threat, Trypticon, appears, how much will they sacrifice for a world that hates them?

Collects The Transformers: Punishment,The Transformers: Redemption, and The Transformers: Salvation.

While it ends in just a few days, Comixology's IDW All-ages sale is still going; with some of their digital comics having up to 50% off. While this is primarily aimed at younger audiences and hence IDW's main Transformers titles such as More Than Meets The Eye and the recently-ended Till All Are One aren't included, there's still a fair few comics of our favourite Transforming robots -- largely IDW's old Transformers Animated and Angry Birds Transformers tie-in material! Transformers Animated, The Arrival, Angry Birds Transformers and perhaps most notably The Allspark Almanac are scattered about pages 1, 7 and 8 of the link in the image below; so click it if you're interested and let us know if you got a decent haul from this!
