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.

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.

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!

Hey Seibertronians!
I, your very own Bronzewolf, will be hosting a Transformers/Toy Industry panel at Fort Collins Comic Con in Colorado on Sunday, August 27th, starting at 2:15 in the Enterprise room! I'll be doing a small presentation on how the growing culture of adult toy collectors has shaped the toy market, followed by a Q&A, where you can feel free to ask me anything, wether it be about Seibertron, Transformers, pop culture, or anything else you want to know!
I'll have a wide array of Transformers, old and new, from G1 to Masterpiece, on display to show the evolution from basic children's toy to hyper accurate, super articulated collector's grade figure.

It promises to be a fun time, the first of what I want to be many, and I hope to meet some of you there! Please drop by if you're in the area!
