    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jun 7, 2018

    Through Barber's reinvention of Shockwave and Ramondelli's art,Optimus Prime #18is one of the most memorable issues of anyTransformerscomic yet. The twist that Shockwave is responsible for all of Cybertronian history is not a twist for the sake of one, but an integral part of Barber's long-story format that pays off in a huge way. It's a compelling read and will make any Shockwave fans happy. Read Full Review

This, and issue 17’s, “Next month” features were perfect teases and has built my anticipation for issue #19. Read Full Review

    Zama's art remains on-task, the dark, twisted metal landscape and the ancient tale is felt with each panel. Read Full Review

    "Optimus Prime" #18 is a dark, dreary origin story for a fascinating new/old Transformers antagonist arriving just in time to finish the continuity! Read Full Review
