The fabric of space and time itself is in turmoil, disrupted and torn by time anomalies resulting from Galvatron's dabbling with past and future. Transformers from two eras collide in an attempt to save the entire universe, pitted against two halves of the same whole - Megatron and Galvatron...

Now, if you are in your mid to late 20's then you will remember fondly the Transformers toys, cartoon series, comic book and movie. Any older than this and you'll remember the Transformers as babyish (come on, you were way past playing with toys when these came out) and any younger and you're likely to ask what on earth were Transformers?

Transformers seem to be making a bit of a comeback recently, and reading the latest graphic novel from Titan it is not difficult to see why. While the artwork is nothing special, the scripts are well above the head of the average 10 year old. And that is why most 20-somethings will look back fondly on this collection - it never patronised them. The plot is complicated enough: Autobots and Decepticons from two eras join forces to defeat a common foe - Galvatron. And to add another level to confuse you, Galvatron teams up with his former self, Megatron. Confused? Then you are probably too old!

Reading these stories for the first time - I was too old when they were originally printed - I can honestly say that I missed out on an intriguing series.
