Great Scott! Could it be? Is it really October 21, 2015? Why, yes. Yes, it is! And to commemorate Back To The Future Day, IDW Publishing has released Back To The Future #1! Based on one of the greatest film trilogies of the twentieth century, this comic book brings us two stories that delve into the days prior to the first film. Everything you ever wanted to know is right here in this comic!*

Like I said, this issue, the first of four in this miniseries, consists of two unique stories. One explores the first meeting of Marty McFly and Doctor Emmett Brown. In the second tale, we see how Emmett becomes part of one of the most significant scientific programs of the twentieth century.

G.I. Joe #7 review

G.I. Joe, Volume 4 #7
Written by Karen Traviss
Art by Steve Kurth
Colors by Kito Young
Letters by Tom B. Long
Edits by John Barber
Cover art by Jeffrey Veregge and Dheeraj Verma with Sanjay
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 1, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #7 continues the story of Cobra versus a group of renegades with what’s left of the G.I. Joe team literally caught in the middle. This book is way more than “good guys vs. bad guys,” it’s almost a political thriller mashed-up with an action movie. If you’re looking for the colorful garb of the Joes or Cobras, you won’t find any of that here.

Written by Paul Allor

Release Date: March 19, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #14 starts with a shock and then just keeps on going. Talk about ACTION!!! There’s more than you can possibly handle in this issue. All this and I haven’t even mentioned the great story and awesome art.

Writer Paul Allor lays out a story that reads like an episode of the original G.I. Joe cartoon, only better. With more character depth and action and modern day military situations. Allor manages to get all the trademark G.I. Joe hallmarks into this issue, while telling a great story that focuses on the newest Joe team member, Hashtag, and her trouble to fit into the Joe team when her position is eliminated. There’s some great character development for her, but it doesn’t take away from the missions that the Joes are sent on. This was actually a real page turner, and Allor managed to give us a great close to this issue, yet leaving the characters in a great “to be continued” moment.

Release Date: January 15,2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Black Dynamite #1 is the most entertaining comic that I’ve read in a long, long time.

Having never seen the film that this is based on, I had absolutely NO idea what to expect. But, the cover looked cool and I love anything that’s set in the ’70s, so I figured I’d give it a try. The story and dialogue that writer Brian Ash came up with had me actually chuckling out loud to myself. Not only that, but it had revitted to what was on the next page. And it just kept getting more and more outrageous! There’s several scenes that, even for a comic book, will leave you stunned in the “Oh my God, I can’t believe he did that!” vein. GREAT beginning to a story and a really great introduction to anyone who isn’t familiar with the character.

Trade Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by James Roberts, John Barber and Nick Roche
Art by Steve Kurth, Chee, Nick Roche, David Daza, Matt Frank and Agustin Padilla
Inks for Orion Pax by Juan Castro
Colors by J. Aburtov, Graphikslava, Ronda Pattison, Len O’Grady, Zac Atkinson, Thomas Deer and Joana LaFuente

IDW Publishing
Release Date: August 14, 2013
Cover Price: $19.99

Transformers: Dark Prelude collects the storylines of Orion Pax, ThunderCracker, Megatron, Bumblebee, TrailCutter and Hoist in an overarching story that spans millions of years, from the distant past, to now. Each story shows a major event from each character’s life. This allows for a more in-depth view into each character’s make up and driving forces.

The abrupt changes between the different stories can be a bit much but do help to distance each story from the last. This was also helped by each character’s changes in appearance between stories. These stories add to lore of this Transformers universe in a wonderful way.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20Transformers Robots in Disguise
Written by John Barber
Art by Andrew Griffith
Colored by Priscilla Tramontand
Lettered by Shawn Lee
Edited by Carlos Guzman
Covers by Andrew Griffith, Casey W. Coller and Livio Ramondelli
IDW Publishing
Release Date: August 7, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Proving to be a great run, Transformers: Robots In Disguise #20 is an amazing continuation of this series. It starts out with somewhat of a recap, and brings us through Starscream’s first day as the leader of Iacon. Trying to do his best in the aftermath of the battle the night before, many obstacles are definitely testing the new leader. Top of the list is dealing with the blackout. This is made more difficult with the added hassle of a pesky conniving Z’Verian Mole-Rat. But it’s also made more difficult by some disturbing revelations about Scoop.

The artwork of Transformers: Robots In Disguise continues to impress me, fitting not only the story but also the spirit of the characters. The detail of the wear and tear on the machines helps bring grittiness to the comic.

Transformers: Monstrosity #1Transformers: Monstrosity #1
Written by Chris Metzen & Flint Dille
Art by Livio Ramondelli
Letters by Tom B. Long
Edited by John Barber
IDW Publishing
Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Transformers: Monstrosity #1 is the first issue in the definitive origin of the Transformers. And I mean that in every way possible. You can’t go back much further than this in the history of Cybertron.

Writers Chris Metzen and Flint Dille dive DEEP into the past of the Autobots and the Decepticons. Going back to when Optimus Prime was just a security guard and him and Megatron where fighting side by side. Not only do we get an origin story for the two most popular Transformers, we see a lot of familiar faces in VERY different roles, An intelligent Grimlock? Yes, please! What I was impressed by in this first issue is that even though the characters are far removed from what they’ll eventually become, they’re all still the same characters that we know and love. Starscream is still a lying, manipulative bad guy. Prime is a leader at heart. And Bumblebee is still too courageous for his own good. Metzen and Dille have set things up in a way, that, even though we know what’s going to happen, we have no idea HOW they’re going to get there. Plenty of fun surprises in this issue.

Transformers: Regeneration One #92Transformers: Regeneration One #92
Written by Simon Furman
Penciled by Andrew Wildman
Inked by Stephen Baskerville
Color by John-Paul Bove
Lettered by Chris Mowry
Editor: John Barber
Editor-In-Chief: Chris Ryall
Covers by Andrew Wildman, Guido Guidi & Geoff Senior
IDW Publishing
Release Date: June 12, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

Transformers: Regeneration One #92 is the latest in a long line of books that IDW is publishing for the FANS. And, as a fan, I don’t think we can thank them enough. Yes another case where the publisher ACTUALLY does something because YOU demanded it!

Transformers Godfather Simon Furman continues doing what he does best – writing Transformers. This series picks up where the original Marvel series left off, just like IDW has done with G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The series has been running since last year, and it’s given Transfans exactly what they wanted, and that is a proper ending to the series. Now, I know most of this is old news to a lot of you, but since this is my first time reviewing the series, I thought a brief catch-up would be nice.

G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #2G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #2
Written by Mike Costa
Pencils by Antonio Fuso
Inks by Emilio Lecce
Colors by Arianna Florean
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Consulting Editor: John Barber
Editor: Carlos Guzman
Covers by Michael Lark, Antonio Fuso and Dan Matutina
IDW Publishing
Release Date: May 22, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #2 is all around a great comic. It’s heavy on the talking, a little light on the action, but all in all, it serves it’s purpose by being both interesting AND entertaining.

Mike Costa writes an issue here, that’s a LOT of set up, and you can tell that, when it hits, the payoff is going to be HUGE. He does some really great character work here. You’ve got the Chameleon, Flint, Lady Jaye and others trying to figure out what the first Cobra Commander’s son, Billy, does and doesn’t know about the Cobra organization. One thing that I wasn’t quite clear on, is just WHY they think Billy is such a threat to national security. But, I’m guessing that that will come out in a future issue. Overall, it’s a very interesting issue.
