The saga of Transformers continues. Until now, the Autobots thought the scale of their problems amounted to Megatron and his Deceptions and the odd renegade god. They're about to realise they're playing in a much bigger arena then they ever thought possible
. Beyond the fringes of known space an ancient power is spreading its malign influence, turning whole galaxies into a dark mosaic of its own design...

Dark Designs is another collection of reprints from Marvel's stable of Transformers stories. Yet again Titan have gone a grand job, although there seems to be no standard format as the last Transformers graphic novel was printed in an entirely different format - different size and paper stock.

The artwork is nothing spectacular, in fact in places it is a little too simple, but it gets the job done.

I still think that anyone over the age of 14 will find this series a little on the dull side, but while transforming trucks and bulls is so 80s I'm sure there is a huge cult following for this series.

At its core, Dark Designs has some impressive storylines - just a shame Furman isn't writing for a series with a little more of mature theme.
