REVIEW: Transformers: King Grimlock #3


REVIEW: Transformers: King Grimlock #3

Book Title: Transformers: King Grimlock #3

Book Description: The third installment of Transformers: King Grimlock starts off in the Rotlands on Menonia. We see the Red Wizard speaking to the Golden One. The Red Wizard is explaining how with each Menonian death they become more powerful.

Elsewhere we see Grimlock has been training the Anglorians for battle. The Anglorians are ready for battle; but trepidation is abound regarding Grimlock. Will he stay with the Anglorians or will he leave them on a whim, like Arko?

Grimlock is true to his word and leads the Anglorians on a March to the Red Wizard’s castle. During the March they encounter wood bots and clay bots. While there are many foes, none are a match for Grimlock.

As he dispatches more wood bots and clay bots his fury about their lack of a spark grows. By the time he gets to the Red Wizard he is a big metallic ball of pure rage. The Red Wizard tries to use that to his advantage. Then Grimlock sees him for what he truly is and rage is no longer adequate. He’s forced to resort to being incensed. This won’t bode well for the Red Wizard.

This series continues to get better and better! Over the years we have seen Grimlock act rashly and without thinking things through. Seeing him quote Optimus Prime’s famous, “All sentient beings have the right to freedom” was a pleasant surprise. Seeing the Red Wizard’s true nature was an even better surprise.

So far this cover’s artwork is my favorite in the series. Grimlock creates quite a striking figure holding his scimitar in one hand and a dragon’s head in the other. I like how when the colors were done they softened the edges around the Dinobot Commander.

Agustin Padilla has been putting on a clinic with Transformers: King Grimlock.. The detail on the interior pages is incredible. I’m a big fan of how well it fuses with the story. It may not break the fourth wall; but it makes you forget there’s anything but what’s transpiring on Menonia.

As a geek on a budget I believe that Transformers: King Grimlock #3 is worthy of dispensing a small portion of your hard earned wages to obtain. It has action. It has a touch of drama. It has plot twists. Most importantly of all, it has Grimlock doing what he does best!

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
