    But Why Tho? - Quinn Feb 14, 2021

    Overall, while I would recommend reading the main series first, the events of Transformers: Escape #2 are still impactful. This is largely due to the great selection of personalities and the excellent dialogue. But the art and colors also do an outstanding job supporting the plot. So far, this mini-series is a great tangent to the main storyline of Transformers (2019). Read Full Review

    Overall, your enjoyment of this series is likely to hinge on your familiarity with the wider IDW Transformers universe. For newcomers, its still a solid story with some lively artwork, but for those who have already immersed themselves in the ongoing Cybertronian narrative, this one is going to be a real treat.

    The plot is too reliant on expository dialogue, which is constant. I'd like to see more characterization in the dialogue, like in the ambidextrous comment. Frankly, only a couple of the transformers have started to develop a personality so far, and more of that would bring this to life.
