Comic Review...

Transformers: Drift #2 (of 4)

Writer: Shane McCarthy
Artist: Alex Milne

(cover by Alex Milne)

Summary: What is the secret behind DRIFT's startling rescuers? How is it they came to be on the isolated, desert planet and what does this have to do with DRIFT's future? As DRIFT uncovers answers, he's suddenly faced with a decision that could alter his life forever!

Comments: Another issue and another reasonably good story (although I have to admit I can see the ending coming a mile away). The story is not mind shattering (nor has anything IDW's done to-date) but it is competently written and about what one would expect. Milne's art is also still good (too many characters look alike, though. It's hard to tell the difference between Drift and Wing most of the time). The character revealed at the end (a shout-out to Animated--yes, really) is a welcome addition to the IDW-verse.

Verdict: Recommended.
