I hope it's not The Fallen or any of the other Satan metaphor characters from the Marvel UK era.

I've just caught up on Transformers: Monstrosity.

It is terrible. All of these neat ideas that are suggested in the main comics are just hamhandedly thrown into this thing. The Circle of Light seemed to have left while no one was actually paying attention and was instead fighting each other but in here, it happens during relative peace and is pretty much announced by Dai Atlas. It's a huge public thing.

Characterization is pretty bad. Everyone likes to talk like they're giving a speech. Dai Atlas is full of himself. Two dimensional art. To me, it tries it's hardest to ruin the rich backstory that Barber and Roberts have been creating.

Autocracy wasn't a high point in the Transformers franchise but this is... so much worse. :|

This. It seems that with the T-Comics, you have to learn to walk away from the odd series or one-shot. Otherwise, they are good stuff.

It fixes an earlier plot point I was not a fan of either...

...and reinforces the fact that no one ever really dies in a Transformers comic.
