    This issue continues to be a thoroughly good installment in the new Transformers world, even though it gets a little wordy at times. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 17, 2019

    The issue, and series, isn't bad there's just a bit of depth and maturity that's missing. The story and series is pretty basic keeping it to a whodunnit story. There's also a bit of a feeling that some choices are done more for fanservice from the previous volume as opposed to really driving the story (ex. Elita-1's inclusion in this issue). This issue is an improvement but this is definitely a different direction and vision than what we've previously seen. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Chris Egan Apr 22, 2019

    A very good continuation that slows down a little more than it should at this point. However, beautiful art will keep you turning the page. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Apr 20, 2019

    Transformers #3doesn't progress the plot in any large way as Ruckley continues setting the board up, but some of the backstory and new characters he introduces are interesting if a bit much to get through. The art from Hernandez, Whitman and Lafuente is fairly detailed in their looks and movements. Hopefully we'll get more information sooner than later on what is actually going on on Cybertron with The Rise and that Megatron's motives aren't so clear-cut and predictable just yet.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 23, 2019

    This issue features a LOT of characters and even more dialogue, with little in the way of plot progression or incident, making the read a bit of a slog. Read Full Review
