User Summary: Your aunt and uncle are astronomers, and your sighting of an unusual falling object in the sky soon leads to an encounter with the Transformers.
Demian's Thoughts: Although this book failed to particularly impress me (probably largely due to the fact that I have no particular nostalgic feelings toward it, having never read it before), it's certainly an improvement over the previous volume. The story is easier to follow and a bit more believable, the game design is less linear and fairly entertaining (though not particularly innovative), and even the artwork seems to have improved. It looks even better if you compare it to the American equivalent, since its humor and writing are a lot less mind-numbing and irritating than what can be found in those unfortunate counterparts. Overall, nothing too special, but possibly worth a read if you're a Transformers or Dave Morris fan.
