Turnabout - Titan - Magazine Comic

Turnabout is a comic about Skids and Mudflap, and there’s nothing bad to say about it.

That’s almost news worthy in itself. Readers should note, the reviewer is one of the not so dynamic duos harshest critics, however this installment in Titan’s comic exploration of the Twins is a thoroughly enjoyable trip to the movie-verse. Far more fun than most, in fact.

I believe this to be the result of an innovative strategy both writer, the man himself, Simon Furman, and Artist, Jon Davis-Hunt, seem to be employing in regards to Skids and Mudflap, that is successfully squelching the shortcomings the characters had in Revenge of the Fallen. I like to call this brilliant stratagem “Write/Draw some one else.”

Furman’s twins are clever, well spoken, and goal oriented. Every passing comic seems to see points added to their I.Q.. Gone are the bumbling Ice Cream truck schmucks, these are capable warriors, dynamic characters, and worth reading. The closest Furman can seem to sink to the inane dialog in the film is the occasional “Yowza!”.

John Davis-Hunt has found the perfect, most aesthetically pleasing, inoffensive way to draw the faces of Skids and Mudflap imaginable: Don’t.

Every panel featuring the heads of the twins, their ill considered guises are completely ensconced in battle masks. It’s genius. Despite a cartoony leaning for a movie comic, Davis-Hunt is going to get a nice fruit basket in the mail from this reviewer.

To top all that off, Ransack is in this comic! That’s right, Transformer biplanes have entered the movie-verse!

Overall, a great serialized installment, look forward to the next one as it will conclude this arc.

They're pretending to work for Soundwave, who's pretending he want's their help. It's a little convoluted. The thing they are leaving is Soundwave's base on the Martian moon, Phobos.

I like the idea of them getting past the head designs by giving them battle masks. They actually look kinda cool, that way. Got a few questions, though: (Might as well ask, since what's the likelyhood of me getting ahold of the Titan comics?) What was that thing Skids and Mudflap were leaving,... read more
