THE WRECKERS RETURN! Somebody’s kidnapped PROWL… but does anybody want him back? A lifetime of messing with everybody’s lives comes around to haunt him. Fortunately, he’s always got a plan. In this case… the team of brutal, broken heroes… the WRECKERS!
With the fifth and final issue released, the second tale of the The Wreckers comes to a close. Much like the first series, Last Stand of the Wreckers the sequel is just as intense and unsettling in a very good way. This isn’t the Transformers series where the characters laugh at the end of an issue or someone makes a witty quip about what just happened. This is the series where the reader spends most of their time reading it hoping all the characters are going to make it out of this one alive. Spoiler (not really if you’ve read the first story): Not everyone does.
The intense violence which these characters experience is disturbing at times to look at but adds to the feel of the book. Writer Nick Roche really did deliver another intense story of the team which is willing to do the hard jobs no one else can.
The artwork is detailed and brings a disturbing atmosphere of the comic. For fair warning, if there are any arachnophobes out there thinking of reading this series, you probably shouldn’t. Thanks to the appearance of a certain character who has the ability to turn into a tarantula and Nick Roche (also doing the art for this series) decided to make him look as much like a real spider as possible the book is veritable nightmare fuel for those who hate spiders. It was frightening at times what was drawn on the page and it takes an artist of real caliber to produce a response so powerful.
Once again, Nick Roche has shown the tough side of the Transformers Universe and created a series which fans will want to to check out. If anyone ever needed proper evidence to show what stories the Transformers Comics are capable of telling look no further than Sins of the Wreckers, a series which was able to impact you in ways which will leave you gasping for air when it’s all over.
