BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer

After the Shogun Warriors and just prior to the Transformers, came their bastard cousins, the Go-Bots. Often jokingly referred to as the poor man's Transformers, these unfortunate AI giant robots have long been the but of jokes years. And while there can be no comparison between the toy lines, writer/artist Tom Scioli manages to do the impossible. His simple story and unique art style give me a title that's hip to be square. The whole book screams 1960's Charlton Comics and causes one to flashback to the good ole days. It kind of makes you forget that Leader-1 only had like 4 moving parts and that once you lost one of Cy-Kill's wheel, you were basicly SOL. The best part of Scioli's work here is that he doesn't apologize or try to bedazzle the original characters. The characters remain mediocre because that's what they are.

I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
