As Jhiaxus and the new Cybertronians continue their remorseless advance across the universe, colonising and mechaforming planets as they go, the Autobots and the Decepticons enter a wary alliance against this common foe. But the threat of Jhiaxus and all he represents pales in comparison to the Swarm, a faceless mass consuming Transformers wholesale...

Transformers: Rage in Heaven revisits stories that were born off the back of a worldwide craze and this is the first time these stories have been collected in book form.

The artwork is never too demanding, but the story writing has certainly stood the test of time. In places this collection will be a little too difficult for most children to follow - a little on the heavy side. And, possibly showing my age now, I wasn't always sure which robot was on which side.

There is also some fun introductions by the writer and artists that dig up a little more background information on what was happening to the comic world at the time the Transformers comic was grinding to a halt.

If you were a fan of the original comics then this collection will bring back a healthy wave of nostalgia and if you want your kids to read comics with a bit more about them then you could do a lot worse than let them read this collection.
