    But Why Tho? - Quinn Sep 27, 2019

    Personally, I think this is a wonderful start to this series. I was a bit wary when I heard that the series was going to start out highlighting the Constructicons, but my fears have certainly been assuaged. The only downside to this series is that I have to wait a month to get my hands on the next issue. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Oct 11, 2019

    Bleszinski does well with the Constructicons' beginnings, though right now the only ones who stand out are Hook and Scrapper. While there are some familiar elements to the story, Bleszinski places enough of his own mark on the characters to make this new take an intriguing one while planting some compelling seeds for future issues. The art from Ramondelli is quite good both in its visuals and thematic connections to the group.Transformers: Galaxies #1is a nice start to the spin-off that doesn't feel like an unneeded part of IDW's main series.

    Good. Really good. Even though it got a little bit confusing here and there, it was never too much to spoil the issue for me. The Constructicons each have distinct, identifiable personalities that stand out from each other. That, combined with some decent art makes the book a nice treat and a fresh change of pace from the other Transformers title, Read Full Review

    Galaxies starts to pick up the pieces the main Transformers book left behind but you have to wonder if this series is up for the task. Read Full Review

    I like how they're trying to establish a mystery with the Constructicons, although non-Transformers fans may struggle to understand how everything ties together. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Sep 30, 2019

    While the comic has some interesting ideas and good artwork, it is crippled by a confusing plot structure, too much dialogue, and crowded pages. Read Full Review
