Simon Furman’s back in the game. In stark contrast to last issues comic, Outlaw Blues is a fun little read. It has a good mix of action and story movement. Finally something is happening in this Primus forsaken, Twins-centric plotline.Outlaw Blues is nicely book ended with action, featuring an oddly written Wheelie kicking some serious skidplate. Furman’s movie inaccurate iteration of Skids and Mudflap continue to be disconcertingly tolerable, and a well written Sam is a welcome addition to the cast.
We all will, Sam… We all will.Best of all, Outlaw Blues features an on earth robot mode appearance of Soundwave. A first in the Movie-verse if I’m not mistaken
John Davis-Hunt’s art is a little cartoony, but continues to bring out the best of the movie designs, especially the Twins. No mean feat. Humans in these comics are drawn with the same attention to detail as the bot’s. The eclectic nature of the sound effects is always a feature. Davis-Hunt’s style here is great for the movie-verse, it seems to improve every issue.
”Then lets go bag Jar-Jar and Snarf!”Overall, this is a fun little romp that forwards the story well. The end of this installment actually left me looking forward to the next issue, an accomplishment it’s predecessor did not share.
