Comic Review

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #8

Writer: John Barber
Artist: Andrew Griffith
(covers by Andrew Griffith, Casey Coller and Marcelo Matere)

Summary:  DINOBOT MONTH! Guess who's back on Cybertron? SLAG, SLUDGE, SNARL, and SWOOP-and they're as mad as ever! IRONHIDE leads them deep into the Cybertronian wilderness searching for lost AUTOBOTS... but what they find might be the greatest danger of all!

 Comments: The description above says most of it. Ironhide leads the Dinobots into the Cybertronian wilderness to search for the missing Aerialbots. They're attacked by some sort of beast, which the Dinos take down. They continue further into the unknown. Ironhide has a suspicion Megatron might be out here somewhere and in the end, the Dinobots disappear, leaving him alone to find out what's happening. He is attacked by Swoop!  There's also a sub-plot about Bumblebee, Starscream and Metalhawk talking about holding elections to determine the future government of their world and the Decepticon remnant discuss their future.
   To be honest, I found the MTMTE story a bit more engaging this time around. RID, by contrast, had a set-up for something next issue and more maneuvering by the parties in the background. It was nice to see the Dinobots once again but they didn't anything all that exciting in my opinion and after all is said and done, we still don't know what's going on with them on what happened to the Aerialbots either. It was cool to see a brief appearance by Shockwave (who resembles his FOC look quite a lot).

Verdict: Average.
