Well I’ve had this on two polls for a while and I think it’s time I finally get to it! Today We’re going to talk about the first two issues of Tom Scioli’s Go-Bots mini series! Now I know what many of you are thinking “What the Transformer’s Rip Off?” First of all it’s not as cut as dry there as you may think and second of all, the story Tom tells here is separate from Transformers (and the original Go-Bots) to tell a fresh new take on everything.
In this version, the Go-Bots have changed our way of life. Leader-1 is a self-aware fighter jet on a hostage rescue mission with his partner, Commander Nick Burns. Scooter is the personal transport and best friend to undergrad A.J. Foster. Turbo is Matt Hunter’s transforming race car in the hottest sport in America, Go-Bot Racing. Cy-Kill is the champion of the illegal, underground Go-Bot Fighting League. A sophisticated sci-fi epic from the visionary creator that brought you Transformers vs. G.I. JOE. They say they’re here to help us, but are they here to replace us?
How is it? Well given how much I gush about the man working on this should tell you what to expect
