"Rise of the Decepticons" continues! There are certain members of the Rise that if captured by Security Operations, would be bad news for both sides. When a convoy of them are being moved from one secret base to another, the only thing that could set them off track is a massive groundquake... which means the geologic survey team  looking into Cybertron's recent seismic events is about to be outgunned and outmatched.

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jul 25, 2020

    Transformers #21is another nice-step forward in the current arc as Ruckley plants some seeds while fully exposing others in his long-game narrative. The tension between the Autobots and Decepticons is well handled while the decision to give some of he villains, namely Frenzy and Rumble, more page-time gives it a different feel to some of the recent issues. The art from the whole team is very good, creating some exciting action beats. ‘Rise of the Decepticons' continues to be a very interesting and entertaining story. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Jul 23, 2020

    Although this isnt a plot-heavy issue, Transformers #21 gives us a large cast of characters to entertain readers and some fun fight scenes with snarky dialogue. However, the two different art styles clashed more often than not and put a damper on the fun. Read Full Review

    There's still something interesting at the core here as Orion Pax finally begins to see that Megatron is at the center of the upheaval that's struck Cybertronian society. We get a single page dedicated to that core as the issue buries it under harder to follow, less engrossing asides. Read Full Review

    Megatron's broadcast was the only part that I found particularly interesting. This issue focuses largely on undeveloped characters and does not execute the artwork or dialogue with clarity. Things like reinforcements arriving, and whatever happened to the Decepticon that was supposed to haul the trailer, just seem to come out of nowhere.
