John Barber continues to reach way back and settle all of his long-standing plot points from at least as far back as Dark Cybertron. A few are resolved and explained fully in this issue, and I kind of like the direction that takes. It's kind of a precarious thing in my mind, because it seems a bit too tidy, too convenient... but on the other hand, it just seems so fitting. It's also a good twist on the legends that Barber's been giving us in Transformers and Optimus Prime from time to time. From as far back as G1, Transformers has had a certain tension between its science-fiction and science-fantasy tendencies, and most modern versions come down on the mythic fantasy side of that. But The Falling is putting me in mind of Frank Herbert's Dune series in how it's revealing specific - and often sinister - reasoning at the root of the mythology of IDW's Transformers comics. It's a nice change.
I never knew I wanted to see Sara to draw a G1-style Starscream with Josh providing G1-Marvel coloring for it, but as it turns out: yes, very much so.
