    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Jul 8, 2020

    The writing here by Sam Maggs is superior with clear storytelling, well developed characterization and deep issues of blind faith and the desire to apply logic upon that faith. It provides easy access to new readers as Gauge is discovering the Transformers and their story and universe with newly opened eyes. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 8, 2020

    It's been a while since I've read IDW's Transformers line of comics but Transformers: Galaxies #7 feels like returning to a familiar friend. It has exactly what I want to see in a Transformers comic, an exploration of society, culture, and politics… with cool robots who can turn into things. It may sound cheesy but the property continues to be “more than meets the eyes.” Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jul 10, 2020

    Sam Maggs makes her introduction in the Transformersuniverse an entertaining and memorable one. The mystery over Gauge's memory and who the Reversionists really are is well played in its build-up as Maggs slowly peels back the layers of their religion. The art from McGuire-Smith and Burcham serves the story well and is impressive given so few of the characters speak actual lines. This next arc inTransformers Galaxiesis shaping up to be a good one with Maggs at the helm. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Jul 17, 2020

    I believe this issue fell a little bit short of my expectations. This is a really formulaic story, and while it looks great, the entertainment value falls a little short, Read Full Review
