Proving to be a great run, Transformers: Robots In Disguise #20 is an amazing continuation of this series. It starts out with somewhat of a recap, and brings us through Starscream’s first day as the leader of Iacon. Trying to do his best in the aftermath of the battle the night before, many obstacles are definitely testing the new leader. Top of the list is dealing with the blackout. This is made more difficult with the added hassle of a pesky conniving Z’Verian Mole-Rat. But it’s also made more difficult by some disturbing revelations about Scoop.
The artwork of Transformers: Robots In Disguise continues to impress me, fitting not only the story but also the spirit of the characters. The detail of the wear and tear on the machines helps bring grittiness to the comic.
This is an amazing continuation of the story of Robots in Disguise. I would recommend the series to anyone, whether they are familiar with the property or not. I think anyone reading this will be able to understand exactly what’s going on, even without previous knowledge of the series, and that says something about how well this was written. And if you are a fan, even better.
