BETRAYAL! The Lost Light may be occupied by enemy forces, but that's the least of RODIMUS' problems! As he awaits execution, the one-time Matrix holder realizes how little he knows about the people he once called friends. Is there anyone left he can trust?

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Aug 1, 2013

    We also have to talk about Alex Milne, the artist who manages to inject an immense amount of detail into the designs of these mechanoids, and colorist Josh Burcham, who is somehow able to decipher abnormal robot body parts in all these intricate black and white panels to know what bits should be which colors. This art is busy, it's kinetic and it's just as dense as the writing, and in that vein, it sometimes takes a few reads to figure out exactly what's happening. IDW takes some heat for the artwork on a lot of their licensed titles, but they do not skimp on Transformers: MTMTE, and that's what helps make this book the best TF fiction ever made.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Jul 30, 2013

    All in all, I'm very impressed with More Than Meets The Eye #19. It demonstrates a mature understanding of the characters and, although it isn't an overly action-filled issue, the future issues and story as a whole will be all the more better for it. Read Full Review

    Whether the concept sits well with you is probably going to come down to personal preference and how much of a hard-on you have for Ultra Magnus  Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Chris Stark Aug 2, 2013

    Why this book doesn't get a 5 is that it still relies heavily on past events. I know that is partially necessary but even as a hardcore Transformers fan, I get lost sometimes and need to go back into previous issues to make connections. But it really is a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Ciaran Flanagan Aug 2, 2013

    More Than Meets The Eye remains fun and well put together. It just needs to space out the earth shattering revelations ever so slightly before either Roberts, Milne or, most likely me, has a heart attack. Read Full Review
