Incredible Change-Bots Two
It's all wonderfully silly and, except for a few pungent expressions, genuinely childlike and playful, radiating an aura of being made up as it goes along. Just plain delightful. -- Booklist This pocket-sized volume is to The Transformers what Avenue Q is to Sesame Street -- a mocking, fawning, idiotic, adoring paean to a pop culture phenomenon inseparable from the artist's person. Although allegory without substance, all action and no moral, it's delightful fluff. -- Library Journal Incredible Change-Bots manages to find the perfect balance between nostalgia and self-aware fun. -- MTV Splash Page Robots shooting lasers is one thing. But add a well-placed BEW BEW BDEW BEW' and it's magical... Incredible Change-Bots may look like it's made for boys' who grew up in the 80's. And it is. But it's so much fun that everyone will appreciate it. -- Playback:STL Brown is a master at lunkheadedly awesome sight gags and wordplay ... I found myself wiping away tears and laughing out loud in inappropriate public places more times than I would like to mention while reading this book. -- Ink 19 Now guess who's back! Four years ago, an alien race of shape-changing robots came to Earth, fired ray guns at each other for a while, then gave up and flew away. But they left behind one thing: Shootertron, the semi-cunning leader of the evil Fantasticons! Fortunately for Earth, Shootertron's memory is a little fuzzy. Unfortunately for Earth, the rest of the Incredible Change-Bots seem to be on their way back... It's all-new action, drama, and comedy as Shootertron struggles to find an identity on Earth and the rest of the Change-Bots struggle to accomplish much of anything. Hilarious and gleefully childlike, Jeffrey Brown's Incredible Change-Bots Two is a nostalgic tribute not only to Saturday morning cartoons but also to Jeffrey Brown's Incredible Change-Bots One.
