Transformers: Redemption

Written by John Barber
Art by Livio Ramondelli
Letters by Tom B. Long

This follows on from the events of Punishment by the same creative team; after the events of that book, the Dinobots find themselves at a loose end before being hired to do some underhanded stuff by a Decepticon and some Camiens. Well, suffice it to say they find what's promised by the title. There's some interesting stuff (a romance between a Decepticon and a Camien demonstrates the increasing nuance of the post-Great War reintegrated Cybertronian society), but man if five different Dinobots (who have really generic robot modes) and a bunch of other robots too is too much for me to keep track of. That's over a dozen character models I need to distinguish! And all the Dinobots have the same personalities. I can't do this stuff, John Barber, you gotta make it easier on me.

This book probably features Livio Ramondelli's prettiest art, though.
Next Week: Meanwhile, on Earth... G. B. Blackrock is up to the same old shit with those Robots in Disguise!
