Until a couple of weeks ago, I was blissfully ignorant of the Transformers universe. I knew, of course, that they were robots that changed form, but other than that I was clueless. Then I heard that Jeffrey Brown, one of my favorite cartoonists, had written a satirical book based on the robots. At that point, I decided to school myself a bit on the matter, and rented the Transformers DVD to have a point of reference. The animated film, though enjoyable, didn't thrill me nearky as much as Brown's graphic novel.
The Incredible Change-Bots is among the best cartoon satires I have ever read. Brown explores the robots' universe and finds humor, love, and a surprising dose of action
