Blaster finds himself on the wrong end of new Autobot commander Grimlock's attentions. Opposed to Grimlock's leadership, Blaster and Goldbug are on the run from friend and foe alike, accused of betraying their fellow Autobots. With the forces of RAAT (Rapid Anti-Robot Assault Team). Special Teams - the Combaticons and the Protectobots - and the Transformers' spaceship, the Ark, also in hot pursuit. Earth is no longer a safe place to be...

Treason is another chapter in the seemingly never ending saga of the Transformers. It's starting to get to the point where I couldn't care whether the Decipticons triumph over the Transformers or not (obviously they don't).

This collection is only really going to appeal to die-hard fans of the series. At £15 this seems a little over priced for what you get. While the reprint is fine, the original wasn't up to that much anyway. There is a poor use of colour and some of the art work is extremely crude.

The script is fine, for the most part, but this is still just a kids (and kids who are a little too fanboyish for their own good) comic. Sadly, most of today's kids have grown up on more mature material and so this is really left to those 30-somethings who want to relive their childhood.

Think very carefully before parting with your money.
