‘Transformers: Wreckers – Tread and Circuits‘ issue 2 is part of a four-part series written by David Mariotte with artwork from Jack Lawrence. It arrives via the IDW Comics timeline that was launched in 2019.
Thunderclash and his team of Autobot Wreckers includes Minerva, Hot Shot, Ricochet, Aileron, and the Actionmaster known as Circuit. They arrive on Velocitron to part take in the planet’s race. A group of rogue Transformers called Mayhem are threatening to attack the race and the participants. With Minerva and Circuit on the sidelines, the rest of the team scope out the competition with several being warned to leave.
Jack Lawrence does a good job with the artwork. His character designs for the Transformers look very sleek and that goes for the Velocitron cityscapes as well. He was able to separate it from the look of Cybertron and I thought that it was done well.
I like the way Mariotte is moving the story along. There is enough drama, action, and mystery going on to keep you hooked on Thunderclash’s team. They have good synergy and make for an epic team. I still think it would have benefited from a character from the original cartoon to keep you hooked, but I do like the characters and find it entertaining.
