| > "Earthfall," part 2. ROM is under attack by an entire town full of Dire Wraithsâ€¦ but these Wraiths are far more powerful than any he's ever faced before. How? Why? The answers await in this issueâ€¦ if you dare!|
Literal reflection covers now seems a clasy staple for any comic book title. Love this cover only enhanced by the smashing bullets. The story & art were a solid installment too. Nothing remarkably different from his Marvel start but important and appropriate to get the basics of the ROMverse (including Dire Wraiths purview). It's a SHAME there was NO followup with G.I.Joe, save that generic 3 panel cameo interlude (looking forward to their interaction so much). Also, it's sad that IDW couldn't keep his home planet of Galador and had to replace it with Elonia. And it's a pandering gimmick to have to change the Spaceknights to a knock off of Marvel's Nova Corps which was, itself, a cheap knock off of the Green Lantern Corps. Finally, didn't really see and REVELUTION Event unfolding (whats up with that anyways?) but did like the, well, "dire" implications of ROM's Analyzer going the way of Atari's Pong in this galactic game of life and death.
Support Cancer and/or Alzheimer Research.
The Solstar order dates back to the days of the toy and we knew nothing of them save for ROM.
To say they rip off the Nova/GLC may not be all that accurate.
As to the analyzer fail, that was wraith magic jamming ROM's senses and it was only his wrist units not the full model we saw in issue one.
