    First Strike #6 has an emotional core that's well anchored from start to finish. The creative team understands what they want and when the dust settles the Hasbro universe is different. So by all means if you haven't been keeping up grab this six issue event and dive right in! Read Full Review

    This event as a whole has felt like the type of battle I did as a kid pitting my toys against each other. It's been fun and entertaining but the reveal at the end takes it all to the next level and has me excited to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    For however much IDW is doing right with these properties, they make it very difficult for those readers who just want to read one book and leave it at that. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Oct 28, 2017

    Overall,First Strike #6 was an enjoyable conclusion to the series, but not perfect. Scott and Morgan's script is well-written with nice character interactions, particularly between Scarlett and Colton, but the other characters are pushed to the sidelines a bit too much. The artwork didn't quite help either; though Dunbar's art and character work is good, its not entirely clear what's happening in some of the action or in the issue's climax, hindering readers being able to fully take in and enjoy the artwork. Its still good, but ends with much less of a bang than expected. Read Full Review
