If by any chance you’re reading our thoughts on Issue #5 of an event you have no idea about: IDW Publishing have brought together properties such as Action Man, Transformers, and G.I. Joe in one huge series. This is the final issue, but is it any good?

Well, it’s the culmination of the four issues and numerous tie-ins that came before it: so, yeah. It’s where all the action is, and it really establishes the sides of good vs evil. We imagine Revolution will change some of these properties going forward, but we have no real idea how and in brutal honesty, we’re not certain we’ll continue to follow these books anymore.

There’s a stupid amount of characters – both major and supporting – but Cullen Bunn does a superb job of juggling them all and giving them something to do. It doesn’t particularly feel like a character is in the story just for the sake of it, and that could have easily been the case.

The artist had a huge task when it came to bringing these characters together. When you think about proportion alone; Ossio has to make sure the Micronauts and Transformers work on the same page, and we can’t imagine that’s an easy task. Fortunately, he’s done a good job. The complex fight scenes were dealt with ideal detail and each set of characters from their respective franchise were pulled off well.
