Galvatron has
managed yet again to travel back into Earth's past. This time, however, it looks like his circuits are well and truly fried, as he initiates a plan to harness an explosion of unimaginable destructive power, making himself a god into the bargain. The Dinobots, Ultra Magnus, Rodius Prime and the Decepticons must join forces to stop Galvatron and save Earth...

The events that unfold in Fallen Angel are related to the 1985 full-length animated movie - although as the authors are keen to point out at the beginning of this collection you don't need to have seen that movie to understand the events that unfold here.

Try as I might I just couldn't get into this series. The artwork is fairly average and the story is fairly run of the mill - if you've read one Transformers story you've read them all. You've also got to ask yourself why Titan are launching this collection around 17 years after the movie and original publishing dates of the comics. Is there really a market for this now?

The reprint is not even up to Titan's usual high standard. This is a collection that will appeal to those who loved the original series and, quiet frankly, not many other people.
