Transformers: Space Pirates by Simon Furman
Transformers: Space Pirates by Simon Furman
In comparison to Simon Furman's other Transformers epics, this is pretty sedate and conventional, although it serves as a bridge between the Time Wars collection and the earlier stories.
The writing is solid and well-executed, as Furman had by this point grown completely comfortable with the setting and characters, and was happily forging his own way.
The main strength of this book is the art. By this time, the UK comic had far outstripped the US comic in terms of art and this looks absolutely gorgeous.

Even when the same artists followed Simon Furman over to the US title, they didn't look this good. Even today, few comics look as nifty as this one.
Possibly knowing that he was off to write the US comics, Simon Furman used the Time Wars to wrap up the years of Movie-related storylines he wrote for the UK title by bringing pretty much every cool Transformer together… Read more
