This is a crazy comic book.
Artist-writer-colorist-letter Tom Scioli channels Jack Kirby and Jim Steranko, embarking as a nearly one-man band to drum up a radically different take on the Robots in Disguise meeting the Real American Heroes. Co-writer John Barber tags along to pepper in dialogue, captions, and plot points.
What does the duo accomplish in Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #1? Well, it’s tough to nail down. The pages of the first issue fall somewhere between DIY concert poster and fanfic hallucination feverishly sketched on the back of some kid’s homework in 1985. If you stayed up all night smoking weed and watching episodes of G.I. Joe and Transformers on Netflix, your dreams would look like this comic.
