Transformers: Monstrosity #4

Transformers: Monstrosity #4 (of 4)

Writers: Chris Metzen and Flint Dille
Artist: Livio Ramondelli
Letterer: Tom B. Long
Cover Artist: Livio Ramondelli

The Transformers: Monstrosity arc comes to an end in issue #4. Once again, Megatron steals the show. With the massive, unstoppable Trypticon rampaging across Iacon, the Autobots are helpless to the slaughter. Prime tries all he can, but it’s not enough. However, help comes from an unlikely direction: Megatron and Grimlock.

This issue has a major Godzilla vibe going for it as Trypticon destroys buildings with impunity. The panels do a lot of nice angle work to show off the beast’s immense size. Throughout the issue, there’s a lot of good artwork as Livio Ramondelli brings to life the battles and the destruction. It can’t be easy to make robots express emotion, but he pulls it off effortlessly. There’s no better example than the face of Megatron.

Throughout this arc, Megatron has played a significant role. In this issue, he becomes central to the story. Just when Prime and the Autobots appear defeated, Megatron shows up to take charge. His face gloats with the smug joy at being able to one up Prime. He also has some great dialog. Though Grimlock is the one who has the honor of delivering the coup de grace to Trypticon, Megatron still manages to steal the glory and assert the power of the Decepticons. His victory, and the last page of the issue, teases what comes next.

With great artwork and a great story, Monstrosity #4 finishes the arc off strong. The characterizations and visuals were superb. The team on this series is truly perfect, and I hope IDW keeps them together for more arcs to come. I give Transformers: Monstrosity #4 a five out of five metal bikinis. This is a series any comic fan can enjoy.
