IDW’s Transformer line has reached a new low with this issue.  In the past I have been an extremely loyal follower of Transformer comics, having a complete run of US issues start with the Marvel run, through DW and well into IDW.  The first series I gave up on were the Movie issues, and my faith began to falter with G1 stories with the extremely weak All Hail Megatron.  The art in this issue is horrible, designs and proportions are inconsistent from panel to panel.  The story halfheartedly undoes previously established work from earlier IDW G1 stories.  What happened IDW?  The strong creative direction that you had 5 years ago was amazing, please find it in you to bring it back.  Until then I am dropping Heart of Darkness. 

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 1 - Poor


  1. I’ll give you the artwork was not up to par, but the writing was quite good. It actually built on a lot of previous continuity. something DnA specialize in. I saw nothing that undid anything previously published.
