    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 4, 2020

    It's a fast, fun, well-drawn and colorful all-ages comic that could appeal to young readers, cartoon fans and comic readers alike, as long as you can set aside your cynical side enough to enjoy it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - stephengervais Aug 4, 2020

    Upon seeing the title the cynic in us all thought this was a ploy to merge two popular universes to get some fast cash. It turned out to be a wildly entertaining issue! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 5, 2020

    The concept might seem like it shouldn't work but the team pulls My Little Pony/Transformers #1 off. It doesn't take itself too seriously and seems to know it's a bit goofy. But, more importantly, it knows it should just have fun. I never mashed up these toys into battle together as a kid but as an adult I get to see what might have been and escape into some innocent and fun entertainment. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Aug 5, 2020

    Many readers will likely pick up this first issue out of the novelty of the crossover. This first issue serves its purpose with a simple setup and interactions between the characters. Unfortunately the overall effect is a bit underwhelming. Hopefully the meeting of Grimlock and Spike next issue brings a needed energy to the crossover. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Aug 10, 2020

    This is a shockingly good comic, especially considering how odd the pairing in this crossover might seem. The story is very basic but it's handled decently enough and there's some good humour here. The characters all seem faithful to the original material and they're consistently entertaining throughout. The art is lovely. It blends the styles of the 80's Transformers and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic shows with more of a slant towards the ponies but it all looks great and would no doubt appeal to fans of either series. Lettering is well-done throughout the issue. I've gone into it more in the main review but there's a solid use of sound effects and the lettering used for telling the reader where events are taking place is quite a nice touch for a crossover like this. I really enjoyed this issue and I'm looking forward to the next. Read Full Review

    Since I typically buy everything Transformers, I had to decide whether to check this one out or now. I'm not regretting that I did, there are actually some pretty funny gags in James Asmus's half and I find myself quite smitten with Queen Chrysalis.
