So they say third time's a charm... that's how many tries it took me to get through this book and I'm glad I did. There are two story arcs included here with some one-offs separating the two. The first story arc revolves around Megatron and is rise to power on (and around) Cybertron. Surprisingly, this is the arc which I struggled with.

Some up-front info: As of January 2015, I haven’t read any TF comics prior More Than Meets the Eye, so these are all a first for me as I slowly work my way backwards through the series (not my choice, believe me, it was a birthday gift accident to start me off with Dark Cybertron but I regret nothing). This neat collection contains: Megatron Origins; Spotlights-Blurr, Cliffjumper, Nightbeat, Shockwave, Soundwave, Hot Rod; and ends with Infiltration.


I really liked a lot of the material
One of the better reboots of any franchise I've seen so far!
The characters feel very much like their original incarnations while still giving us a new feel to them. Their alt-modes as well as robotmodes feel more updated, without straying too far from the old eighties feel.
Having Furman as a writer was probably the best thing to ever happen this reboot (a bit like having Michael Bay direct that other reboot was the worst that could happen...)

We start of before the great war even had begun on Cyb
The art is hit and miss, but it IS robots so. Script and dialogue is solid if sometimes rushed. Shows promise of next volumes being even better.
just couldn't get into this :-(
