    The introduction of a new human faction proves an intriguing move as John Barber begins to pull the curtain back on the mysteries that hung over "Dawn of the Autobots". With a name change and a new arc, Transformers has recovered some vital energy. It's not so much that things have drastically changed for the better but that the creators feel that much more excited about the project. Though this is undoubtedly a transitionary issue, Barber, Griffith, and Perez make it hard not to share in that enthusiasm. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Dave MacPhail Nov 12, 2014

    The book is off to a decent start but ultimately suffers from too much story and too few pages to set everything up. It is however a little to early to start panicking since this is just the first part of a much longer story. Given just how much of the story is brought in from previous issues I would not recommend this to a brand new reader however, however anyone with a good background knowledge of Transformers in general should be able to pick this up and enjoy it.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Nov 11, 2014

    All in all, there's little change here and a bit more padding. As a transitional issue, everything feels slightly unfinished. That said, if what it hints at is true, then things could get a little more interesting. Read Full Review

    The dialogue is spunky. The art is cracking. But it's starting to feel a bit lack-lustre. I'm starting to feel a real need for a fresh voice to this narrative: I just don't know where it's going. It still raises a smile it still gets a knowing wink., but I'm starting to want more, frankly. Read Full Review

    I was hoping for a comment on the name change in an afterword, but that was not present. It's not a big deal, I'm just curious. There is also a logo on the inner front cover certifying 'Authentic Transformers' and I'm not sure what that is either. The dialog is spot on, and the humour is good, I might even suggest turning it up one notch. I'd say the main weakness of the issue is the fact that it is introducing the new status quo and, therefore, it needs to be steeped in exposition. It remains entertaining, but certainly not to the degree of other issues. We also have an artist change here, but the art and design remain strong. Even the humans are well drawn, which can often be a miss in a transformers comic. I'm not sure what Optimus's motivations are yet and I certainly don't understand why he's leave Prowl in charge when Kup is around, especially after the stunt Prowl just pulled. Rest assured though, with Prowl in charge, stuff is about to go down.
