All Hail Megatron #9 - IDW - Comic

There is no way to review All Hail Megatron #9 with out spoilers. So in this non spoiler paragraph, I’ll just say, if you have been thinking of buying this issue, get up right now and go do it. Like now in the middle of this sentence. If not, make sure to pick up both All Hail Megatron Trades, it’s fantastic.

I normally don’t get multiple covers anymore. I read this in the car, went back to the comic store and got the second cover. I decided for such a good issue I needed them both.

Spoilers Follow

Most of the action in this issue is Spike, returning from a 3 issue hiatus, and human co. fighting Rumb… Frenz… whoever, A CASETTE. The fight ends in a compelling Soundwave moment.

Ironhide tries to apologize to Mirage for beating him half to death. It does not go well.

Then as Sideswipe starts to lose his shpedoinkle and the Autobots’ stranded warriors are about to fall apart, Sideswipe challenges Blaster to say something that will bring Sunstreaker (seemingly killed in issue #8) back to life. Well if anything could it’s what happens next.

Optimus Prime has returned to All Hail Megatron and he is amazing.

All he does is talk, he has a fantastic two page spread, flanked by lieutenants and I* swear I could hear Peter Cullen with Steve Jablonsky’s TF score playing behind him.

The Autobots are stranded on a dead Cybertron surrounded by thousands of cannibalistic Insecticon mutants, and when Prime was done, I felt sorry for Megatron and the Decepticons, they’re slagged. Prime is gonna hand them their crank shafts.

End Spoilers

It’s a beautiful issue and Writer, Shane McCarthy… somebody needs to give him a medal or something.

Comic Series don’t get much better than All Hail Megatron and it’s only getting better.

*I usually avoid the perpendicular pronoun in my reviews, but this was a singularly personal experience.
