If there’s anything more fun than Christmas-y alien robot shenanigans I haven’t seen it yet. This year’s Transformers Holiday Special is a snicker-inducing dorky mash up of mirth and, of course, robots. Personal favorite: Starscream plotting the end of Christmas, speaking entirely in rhyme, in typical Grinch-ian fashion.
The three-episode issue features art and writing from several folks at IDW that spans a range of aesthetics, from cartoonish to cartoonishly serious, clever writing and just the right amount of Holiday cheer. All in all, the issue was a fun, family-friendly take on the series out just in time to make a great stocking-stuffer for kids from one to ninety-two.
Happy holidays folks!
