    But Why Tho? - Quinn Sep 19, 2019

    On top of this, the coloring by Lafuente is beautiful. There are a few panels showing foreign planets along with novel flora and fauna. These panels are visually striking and really capture the beauty that Nautica herself finds in these alien environments. The lettering by Tom B. Long, as always, is easy to follow and doesn't clutter the pages. The use of different types of speech bubbles also aides in ease of reading and separating spoken language with inner monologue. Overall, Transformers #12 is a great issue that continues to showcase the series. Read Full Review

    Ruckley does a great job establishing Nautica in the series with her interest in alien species and relationships with her colleagues.Transformers #12was perhaps the most balanced issue of the series so far in terms of character, plot and world-building with some of the best artwork the series has offered yet.

    The art by Sara Pitre-Durocher is fantastic. I really loved all the details in the characters and the backgrounds. A really good looking issue all in all. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Matthew Dillon Sep 24, 2019

    The book consistently squanders its potential both as an entry into the Transformers mythos and a standalone narrative. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Jenna Anderson Sep 18, 2019

    It's still admirable what this series is trying to do for the overall Transformers canon, but the execution will leave some genuinely befuddled. Read Full Review
