Some thoughts about Optimus Prime #8
Jazz is trying to redeem himself in the eyes of other people meanwhile Optimus tries to search for peace despite that there might not be possibility to achieve it.
Plot-wise not a lot happened again, character-wise though? Solid enough.
John Barber offers a new chapter where he developes most of the cast both in the present and the past. The story manages to give most characters enough time to show how the whole situation has been affecting them, even little moments to side-characters like Slide offer decent scenes.
While the story fluctuactes between present and past once again, the pacing is not affected this time, at least not so much, this segment provides a better insight in Jetfire and I'm glad they do. Jazz is the here though since there are scenes focusing on an interview where he reveals his emotional struggle after his crimes on Earth.
Casey W. Coller handles the artwork and is really solid with expressive characters, vibrant style and precise storytelling.
Enjoyable enough, hope the next one offers more plot though.
