Transformers vs. G.I. Joe 3 (September 2014)

Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #3

Something very bad happens this issue of Transformers vs. G.I. Joe. It becomes inane. Writers Scioli and Barber don’t exactly stop giving characters arcs of their own, they just get rid of having the overall issue story have anything to do with characters.

It’s full of annoying big action moments too, where Scioli lets the art get too confusing and never takes his time with anything. The issue gets worse as it goes along too, as Scioli and Barber continuously make bad choices.

It’s unfortunate. But maybe the concept just couldn’t work out to an actual comic book series. The characters are all so obnoxious, only the end of the world from the attacking Megatron would make them sympathetic. And, even then, not because of any work the writers do, but maybe Scioli could make it work.

As is, however, the comic has prematurely run its course. It’s a shame.

One thought on “Transformers vs. G.I. Joe 3 (September 2014)

  1. I thought the the big purple robot’s concern for his brother and the big reveal at the end showing what happened to him kind of kept it character-driven. Megatron comes off as sympathetic to me in that he’s motivated by trying to save his planet. I agree that the Joes are all obnoxious, with the exception of Polly the Parrot who ends up a tragic character.

    I don’t know what you are referring to by bad decisions but I think Megatron’s head is definitely one of them.
