    This issue takes Transformers into some even darker places, but the narrative is arguably all the better for it. Read Full Review

    Transformers #4 might stand up better during a binge read, but there is still good stuff happening during this "Bold New Era" of IDW Transformers Read Full Review

    Fine so far, but if this series wants to be more than meets the eye it should transform its pacing a bit. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church May 3, 2019

    While it's clear Ruckley's is playing long game with the series, his approach is making the issues feel a bit repetitive as nothing totally new has been revealed about the plot or the characters to a large degree yet, making it feel like Transformershasn't progressed very far from its first issue. The art from the team at least improves the issue, but the lack of momentum in the plot drags it down a lot. Hopefully the series will start picking up soon and feel less repetitive.

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 1, 2019

    From what was an amazing run to this, this new volume is a drag of a story facing pacing issues. The series plays out more as a drama and police procedural than anything else delivering a drab experience that's a struggle to enjoy beyond playing spot the bot. A “Bold New Era” is exactly what it's not. Read Full Review
