    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Dave MacPhail Jul 27, 2016

    This is the final issue in this arc and it certainly goes out with a bang, the uneasy status quo looks set to change over the course of the next few issues and the world of the Transformers looks both a little better and a little worse for it. The series did feel like it was maybe a few issues longer than it should have been but the events in the last half of this book have completely made up for any short comings and leave us with a lot of questions about just what will happen next. It is exciting to see so many lost colonies now featuring so heavily in the book especially with the return of the cast from Beast wars, I await the start of the next issue with bated breath.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Aug 2, 2016

    This arc started slow but the last two issues have really helped to cement the importance of it in the overall story. Things will be different from here on out for the Transformers and humanity. They will most likely be explored in the Optimus Prime series which will be out later this year. With any luck, he will hopefully have more going for him than just be a stalwart symbol and actually have a bit more fun. Even Megatron now gets entertaining moments with the crew of the Lost Light.

    I can buy Cosmos and Astrotrain getting to Jupiter this fast since they are made for space travel, but I just cannot abide the other characters getting to Jupiter with jet packs or rocket feet, it's simply ridiculous. Don't forget, it took NASA three days just to get to the moon. Other than that, this is an exceptional issue, one of the best smack-downs I've ever seen in a Transformers comic, and there are some great battles out there. Optimus seems to reluctantly accept the horrible things he must do for the greater good, it is almost a righteous Machiavellian style of leadership. I can only imagine the turmoil that brews inside his psyche because he has always strived to take the high ground, always; and I'm not sure if it's that he's evolved his outlook on life or that he just feels that there are too many lives at stake to be uncompromising with his principles. I just don't want to forget this dialog, it's priceless - Optimus: "If I were like you, if I could think only of myself... I would never do this." - Galvatron: "No, you can't, I surrender! I surrender Prime! - Optimus: "I know." BLAM!
