    Overall then, while its position as a jumping-on point is questionable, Barber and Zama are crafting a detailed and complex character study of one of the most intriguing Transformers of all time, and are doing so by blending a myriad of different genres and styles together. Yes, the pace is glacial for the time being, and the onslaught of characters and backstory may feel intimidating or suffocating to some, but Im definitely planning on sticking with this new series for the long haul, and Id heartily recommend and would-be reader to do the same.

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jan 5, 2017

    The art may not be up to par with the last issue, but John Barber still crafts a good story that further examines Cybertron's post-war place in the galaxy. Optimus Prime's portrayal of its title character, both in the past and present, does shed some light on his thought process in this new setting and remains the highlight of the book, but hopefully the art can bounce back in the next issue.

    Though Josh Burncham's colors offer a nice transition between the the past and present, Optimus Prime #2 suffers from trying to do too much in too little time. Read Full Review

    While there was not as much action going on in this issue, I enjoyed learning more about the history behind the Civil War and how that may affect the story going forward. One aspect of this series I would like to see moving forward is exploring the backgrounds, personalities and relationships of the colonists. While the present and the past stories are interesting, I hope there is room for development for the new members of the cast. With the exception of Talon’s monologue, I throughly enjoyed reading this issue, and I am looking forward to whatever lies ahead for Optimus and his crew.

    You guys have to do the Universal Greeting, come on now. I'm actually finding the flashbacks to be the most interesting, Cybertron has such an intricate history.
