Comic Book / The Transformers: Requiem of the Wreckers

Go To
Requiem for a Dream.

The Transformers: Requiem for the Wreckers is the last chapter in the Wreckers Saga, released on May 2018, capping the story of the Wreckers following the events of The Transformers: Sins of the Wreckers. Original artist and co-writer Nick Roche returns once again, joined by Geoff Senior and Brendan Cahill in art duties, with Josh Burcham and Josh Perez in coloring duties.

In the two years that have passed since Wreckers' final mission, Springer and Verity Carlo have been keeping a low profile, living together in a barn off the grid. Via a Cybertronian communications array left to them by Prowl, they listen in on radio chatter to keep up to date on goings-on out in the world, from the rise of firebrand anti-Cybertronian politician Megan Guiglione, to the shocking news of Kup's recent death. Already struggling to process what Verity has told him about his true origins as a creation of Tarantulas's, Springer is hit hard by the passing of a 'bot who was like a father to him, and decides to seek out the only remaining link to his past, Impactor—last seen joining up with the Cybertronian terrorist organization Mayhem—for a heart-to-heart talk. Before they hit the road to meet Impactor, Verity, concerned by phantom traces of outgoing communications she has found on the array, runs a diagnostic on the machine. While she waits for a handset to synch with it so she can monitor the results remotely while they are away, Springer tells her the story of how he first met Impactor...



  • Art Shift: The flashbacks are drawn by Geoff Senior, long time transformers artist in the Marvel days.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Overlord, by having his split alt-form sent to opposite sides of time, one to the early days of the universe and the other to the end of the universe.
  • Like a Son to Me: It's obvious that Kup always saw Springer as basically his son.
  • Parental Substitute: While Tarantulas might have been his creator, Springer saw Kup as his father figure, although he would not realize this until much later.
  • Villain Team-Up: Overlord and Tarantulas.

How well does it match the trope?
