    The Dinobots allowed the heroes to remain heroes, and this story adds depth to the characters that makes you question if they're heroes too. Read Full Review

    This is a very enjoyable character driven adventure with an ending which will no doubt have an impact on the future of IDW's Transformers line. Definitely one to pick up you're following the post Cybertronian Wars TF books. Read Full Review

    The Transformers are all grown up and if, like me youve been away from Cybertron for a while, I would advice that you return for a visit but keep your blaster handy and enough energon in your tank for a quick getaway. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Nov 1, 2015

    Most of Transformers: Redemption's cast are fairly simplistic, and that deprives it of the character relationships that have been the core of many of John Barber's Transformer gems. The middle of the issue drags a bit and the art isn't always clear enough, but it manages to hang in there through the strength of our lead and a feeling of scope. At its best, Redemption is a very strong book, but there's a lack of consistency that keeps it from being a sure thing and the $8 price tag could hold some readers back. In the end, the book makes some big changes to the Cybertronian setting and sets up for some promising stories, but, in itself, it's going to be a matter of taste. Read Full Review

    A tale with conflicting emotions coming to a head. Another excellent Dinobot-centric story from Barber and Ramondelli, what a killer team they make. *SPOILERS* I was thrilled to see Bludgeon is still kicking around doing twisted experiments. I'm excited to see what his fate in this issue leads to, maybe this is the dawn of the Pretenders in the IDW Transformers?
