Okay, here we go with a tease (some inevitable spoilers, but I’ll go easy on those) of what’s in store, script-wise, in Transformers (UK) #10. The all-new UK continuity, which kicked off in the previous issue (spiralling out of the end of the live-action movie, but in a radically different way) in explosive/dramatic style, continues (escalates) in the shape of part 2 of (the 5-part) Twilight’s Last Gleaming. As bleak as things were looking for the Autobots (and pretty much the whole of humankind) in part 1, in part 2 things get that much worse. The Autobot counter-offensive against the ruling Decepticons looks to be derailed before it’s even started, with Bumblebee and Mikaela both hunted (by Megatron and Frenzy respectively) inside the former Sector 7/Hoover dam base and the moon-based Autobot reinforcements compromised, and Earth’s military response targeted (by Starscream and Dreadwing). Only Ratchet and Ironhide’s side of the main strike seems still to be proceeding on course, but (realistically) how long can that last? Chaos, carnage, all-out action, things haven’t been this epic since the days of Marvel UK. Whatever you do, don’t miss it. TF-UK #10 is out on the 27th of March, and in the meantime here’s a glimpse of Jeremy Tiongson’s dazzling art (colour by Jason Cardy) from the story.
