Sins of the Wreckers

Over the last 25 years the Transformers have appeared in media from the exquisite to the scribbled and been licensed to the responsible and the... Pat Lee. Discussion of all the branches of TF media within!

So I am reading the trade, and have switched from "overall a good story" to feeling like Nick failed as a storyteller...

because OSTAROS is SPRINGER???

Did ANYONE else get that?

Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

I've forgotten who Ostoros even was. And I just read the thing not too long ago.

Basically, this entire series I felt I was in that noise-maze thing where I couldn't make heads or tails of it.

Far cry from LSOTW.

It was pretty clear that Ostoros was Springer... I thought...

And opposite to you, I wasn't sure of it on my first read, but after a reread liked it a lot more.

I put that down to me tending to scan through when I read things - this is certainly one where you need to pay close attention to the details.
