    But Why Tho? - Quinn Jun 4, 2019

    Although I'm looking forward to seeing the murder investigation culminate, this small interlude to evaluate the relationship between Orion Pax and Megatron was insightful and reveals more about the political atmosphere of Cybertron. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church May 30, 2019

    While there isn't any more movement on the central murder mystery of the series, Transformers #6was a welcome break from the main story thanks to the focus Ruckley gives Orion and Megatron. Their friendship feels pretty authentic with some nice parallels of their beliefs, personalities and who they ultimately will become. The character-driven nature really succeeds where the last couple issues have not. McGuire-Smith's artwork only elevates the issue thanks to her pencils, colours and consistency. It's a nice save for the series and hopefully one Ruckley can continue in the upcoming story. Read Full Review

    Like the previous issue, Transformers #6 is a departure from the rest of the series. Hopefully it stays where it is right now. Read Full Review
