    Big Comic Page - Sam Graven Jun 12, 2019

    This is a comic for anyone who sat and watch Bumblebee and thought, “Thats what I want from Transfomers.” This is a comic for anyone who has waded through years of IDW classics and thought, “Now what?” It's also a surprisingly subtle comic, relishing taking its time with the story, presenting an interesting (and disturbing) mystery against a proper political thriller. There's a lot more to it than meets the eye. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Jun 16, 2019

    However, this issue is a little frustrating, for both the readers and the characters within. The murder investigation is no closer to answers, and you can see how this affects Prowl negatively. Chromia is much more put-together about the situation but she must also be feeling the pressure. We get more of a sneak peek in Cyclonus's mind, but we're also suddenly introduced to a new bot with questionable intentions. More questions than answers seem to be added to the mystery of the first murder on Cybertron. I can certainly tell you I'm antsy to be thrown a bone. There are so many questions needing to be answered, beyond those revolving around the murder. What are the Ascenticons up to? Why are Cybertronians going missing? Is Bumblebee making the right choice? Let me tell you, it's going to be a good day when all of them are answered. But, for now, we wait. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Vishal Gullapalli Jun 11, 2019

    The issue as a whole is an excellent way to allow the events of the previous issues to breathe and really get their importance and impact across. Ruckley's depiction of Bumblebee's grief and disillusionment is excellent, as it feels palpable throughout the issue. It also handles the loss of the point of view character very well. Rubble was the lens through which the reader could experience this new Cybertron, and his death could easily have resulted in a loss of perspective and focus. Instead, the book takes this loss in stride and uses it to flesh out the perspectives of all the other characters. This issue sets up a lot to look forward to, and does a great job depicting the apparent fall of Cybertron. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 12, 2019

    Angel Hernandez, Andrew Griffith and Anna Malkova deliver some great art with some great character moments. I continue to be impressed with the look of the characters and the details found throughout the panels. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jun 17, 2019

    While Rubble's death feels a little too soon and unearned, it has opened some pretty interesting doors. Bumblebee's journey is the most interesting as Ruckley is doing something entirely different with him while the political element may get more of an emphasis with the impending arrival of Sentinel and Starscream. The combined art team does well depicting the character's sense of loss and uncertainty, making Transformers #7a nice visual chapter even if some of the emotion and action could have been clearer.

    Transformers begins a new arc in a way that's not perfect, but will hopefully satisfy fans. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Matthew Dillon Jun 13, 2019

    Transformers #7 quickly wastes the goodwill it built up over the last two issues. Read Full Review
