TRANSFORMERS TITLES FROM TITAN BOOKS / MAGAZINES

Titan Transformers Prime #7
Reviewed by Inflatable Dalek

Notes

Megatron's interest in gladiator style combat of course relates back to his origin story.

Fearstorm is a- very briefly lived- comic created character.

There are no Autobots in the issue.

The Scraplets feature references their ability to combine from the Marvel comic.

Goofs

Starscream seems to kill Fearstorm by stabbing him in... the hands? Was some violence toned down here?

Fantastic Free Gift!

A disc bomber and stickers.

Issue Review

Whilst it's extremely predictable (did anyone think Starscream would lose?) this is a surprisingly entertaining story. Mainly because it's so much darker than anything we've had recently with some very brutal combat and Megatron cheerfully having his own troops blown up as part of training.

The small cast is also well handled, Megatron gets to be all meta in pointing out the Autobots always win; Starscream gets to be smart and Fearstorm is an musingly smug one off.

Throw in some nice art and we have the most entertaining Prime comic yet.
