    Overall, I really enjoyed this issue. Barber has a great voice for these characters and Ramondelli really nailed the story-within-a-story that is told in Optimus Prime #10. Zama and Burcham contrasted Ramondelli's style nicely, easily demarcating past and present without losing the tension that runs through the issue constantly. Devout Transformers fans have a lot to digest with the canon proposed here and even casual fans can find a lot to enjoy in this issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 30, 2017

    Transformers: Optimus Prime #10 continues to show that IDW's Transformers comics are so much more than people give them credit for and deliver commentary and lessons regularly like the best sci-fi does. A layered story and issue that'll leave you pondering its meaning for some time to come. Read Full Review

    Quite the detour from the main story, I'm not sure I get the point. Is it to draw parallels to the council of worlds and give insight to Arcee's backstory? I found the flashback story kind of difficult to follow actually, and there was ample opportunity for Alpha Trion to dress it up with more narration and make it more clear. The titans were also a completely unnecessary addition.
