Some thoughts about Optimus Prime #6
The Junkions are trying to take over Earth and is forcing everyone to fight but Optimus believes that there must be other way.
This initial arc is over and it could have been better in some aspects.
John Barber brings the conclusion of this storyline by developing the next direction of the book. There's decent character work due that a lot of cast receive solid moments here and there while the writer creates the most logical conclusion considering the events that have been happening during this book and Optimus' background.
That being said, I feel like this storyline took more issues than it should. The last chapter was pretty much worthless and while this is much better written, mostly because of the improved pacing, is still not ideal considering what occurred before.
Kei Zama's artstyle does have its appeal but at times is difficult to figure out what's happening since the details are a bit obscure.
Not the best, not the worst, hope the next arc is better.
