$17.95 US (Paperback)
*** 1/2 (out of five)

Giant robots, fast cars, massive explosions: it’s hard not to like a title that features all these elements.
Featuring Optimus Prime, Megatron, and dozens more of the characters many children of the 80s grew up loving, Dreamwave Productions takes us back into the world where everything is more than meets the eye with Transformers Generation One Vol. 2: War And Peace.
With all due respect to the plot by relative newcomer Brad Mick, this book is all about some of the best art to grace any comic book pages in the last decade.
Markham-native Pat Lee captures all the immensity and intensity of the Transformers in a way that inspires awe. The fact that Lee is an absolute fanboy totally comes off in these pages. He subtly slips in a ton of obscure characters and Easter eggs for the true followers, while making exciting, eye-catching images for all.
This book clearly benefits from a terrific supporting staff, too. No book this polished can be so without one. Big props to the rest of the crew at Dreamwave for keeping these character interesting and looking so damn good after 20 years.
