Review of Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters #5

TFP BH #5 CVR A Banner

TF Prime Beast Hunters #5 is here!!! I am loving this series! I love the arc of two parter stories!  Here is my SPOILER FREE review of the fifth issue. Continuing the adventures of the Dinobots in Underground Cybertron. A event now shakes up the Cybertronians’ world!


The Regular cover of issue 5 showcases Grimlock in the spotlight this time, and he’s holding up the world! The Retail Incentive cover is PredaKing with a purple background! I miss the Subscription covers! however the main cover for issue 5 is damn cool. The RI cover is great as well, but neither really are mind blowing.

Mairghread Scott takes the lead for this new story. I love how she writes the characters, not to detract from Mike Johnson’s approach, but Mairghread’s writing style is more enjoyable for me. I understand that they are writing the book together, but issue #3 was like woah! what happened? At least for me it was. In this issue it’s all from Snarl’s point of view, and I gotta say I love Snarl! Love the way Ms. Scott tells the story through his eyes. I really enjoyed how the story changed from Last Spark to New Kalis, and the Dinobots throne room. I thought that was a brilliant way of telling one story. Having multiple events going on at the same time. I have no idea what else I can say that won’t be spoiler filled. It’s just damn good writing. I really am enjoying the arcs in Beast Hunters. Thankfully Mairghread and Mike are telling a long story arc, through these two parters. All I think I’ll say about the story is that you need to read this for yourself, and enjoy it for how awesome it is!

Augustin Padilla seems to be back on track. I had no real issue with any of the art in this. I really enjoyed seeming the images, and sometimes they even seemed to pop off the page. Love the way he designs the Dinos in this issue, and I really love how a pool of Energon looks. That was damn awesome. He even did a awesome job making a G.I. Joe character look like it belongs in the Transformers world as a Transformer!
