321 – Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers

We’re joined by a special guest to take on a new 80’s nostalgia series, starting with “Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers” by Nick Roche and James Roberts. A squad of kick-butt robos is tasked with an infiltration and retrieval mission that seems to only ever get worse and worse. We talk about this book’s capacity for quick character development in a frenetic, action-oriented storyline. Nostalgia plays a special role in this comic, too, as readers familiar with the franchise are confronted by their own expectations. Impactor’s arc comes full circle, but a lot of good Autobots just don’t make it. Plus, we talk about Deanna Troi a little bit.
