    The result is a flight through dangerous territory that's a nice change of pace, but not entirely successful as it doesn't spend enough time digging into the emotional impact of everything that's happening. Read Full Review

    A very well done issue, leaps, and bounds from the recent issues of this title. Hopefully, this will be the new norm. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Mar 12, 2020

    Despite there being some technical issues, Transformers #18 was an entertaining tangent to the rest of the series. It's hard to tell if, at all, this issue will have a greater impact on the plot of the series as a whole, but, after the gravity of the events in the previous issue, the end of the issue is a bit of a reprieve.

    The series jumps to a new character focus for just this issue, but it works surprisingly well. The events of the previous issue just happened, but we see the implications elsewhere on Cybertron; it makes the setting feel authentic and lived-in.

    I love Arcee's righteous indignation.
