CBR Review: Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers #1

I recently reviewed Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Despite being aimed at kids, many elements of Transformers have always struck me as more mature and adult than normal children’s fare. Take, for instance, the animated Transformers: The Movie, which features the wholesale slaughter of various Transformers, gunned down, beaten to death, or run over, since their robot nature meant harsher forms of violence weren’t out of bounds. With a violent conflict at the core of the concept, Transformers has always flirted with very dark subject matter and no group of characters in its universe seems ripe for dark, disturbing stories than the Wreckers, a commando group of Autobots — the sort sent in to do suicide missions and eliminate the enemy any way possible."
