    While this issue doesn't have the sheer joy of Transformers greatness that MTMTE usually has, the Dark Cybertron story has potential, and when Roberts gets a hold of the old continuity elements, he remembers to explain them and deal with them as if they're new to the reader. I've read all of the stuff, and I still need a refresher on the plots gone by from time to time. Still looking forward to Shockwave's master plan " it can't simply be in service of an old crackpot despot like Nova Prime. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - David McIntyre Nov 19, 2013

    There's minimal plot development here and no big “AH-HA!” moments here. Instead we have charaterwork out the wazzoo- all of which I expect to see being payedoff alongsidethe plot set-ups of last issue by the time we read the finale. I also have to give props to the Retailer Incentive cover for this issue – never would I have imagined that I'd be able to buy a comicbookfeaturing both Scoop AND his two Targetmasterpartners in an actual comicbook store Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Nov 25, 2013

    Livio Ramondelli is perhaps the worst in the bunch in terms of disconnection to the overall style. Make no mistake, his art is absolutely superb, yet it doesn't fit at all with either the moodiness of James Raiz or the cartoony approach of Atilio Rojo. While his style fits very well with his low amount of pages set in a dead universe, it's just too different from the rest. Still, his economy of space in his backgrounds create an eerie atmosphere that really cements in the creepiness of the area in which Orion Pax and the others are in. The characters are perhaps a bit suffering in terms of details with his approach, yet they are easily recognizable nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Nov 19, 2013

    I'm giving it this score because it is still a little more bearable than Dark Cybertron #1. Yet it really needs to up its game and stop relying on switching art styles and fitting in every cast member it can. Read Full Review
