THE TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE is like comfort food. With the continuation of Marvel’s original Transformers series from issue number 80, though over at IDW now, you’ve got a good idea of what you’re going to get. Giant robots, peril, a reference to Primus (the god, not the bass player mind you), and Grimlock doing stupidly heroic things. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, especially with Simon Furman and Andy Wildman as your creative team.

If you liked Wildman’s art back in the original Generation One series, you should be in hog heaven. At the first part of IDW’s run, his art had been a little shaky, but as soon as you see the return of a certain unnamed character you’ll know Wildman’s got the touch once more. As for writer Simon Furman, the affection he has for these characters couldn’t be more obvious. This issue finds the Dinobots about to descend into the depths of a Cybertron looking for Grimlock, the citizens of Cybertron in revolt against Hot Rod’s temporary leadership, Nebulous in ruins, Optimus Prime stranded on Earth, and familiar evils plotting doom. Sure it’s familiar, but there are plenty of twists and familiar characters to make it fun. And it is fun.

With both creators back on board, there’s no way I wasn’t heading back to Cybertron.
