    Often, with series/franchises that carry complex mythologies, there is a difficulty 'jumping in.'  This is not the case here, as Roche has carefully used dialogue to provide solid exposition. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 25, 2015

    This book and its predecessor prove that it's possible to treat the Transformers franchise with utmost seriousness, as long as there's room for occasional moments of silliness and bombast. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Alan Shields Nov 24, 2015

    Although this first instalment is very well put together, Sins of The Wreckers won't blow you away straight out of the gate, as Roche needs these pages more to set the tone of the series than to start blowing things up (and, presumably, killing robots). Everything is here that needs to be, though. Action, mystery, and character development – especially between Impactor and Roadbuster – are all present and accounted for, and if Roche and his Wreckers' track record is anything to go by, this'll be a hit.

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Nov 25, 2015

    Transformers: Sins of the Wreckers #1 is a rough jumping-on point. It can be a little difficult to figure out all of the different characters and the overall plot. Despite this, Nick Roche creates a layered story with missing spies, a manhunt, and political intrigue all set in the Transformers universe. His artwork is also top notch with exciting action sequences and awesome weapon designs. However, Josh Burcham's colors can make it difficult to differentiate certain Transformers, but at the same time does a great job depicting a Transformer transform. Read Full Review

    Very rewarding experience provided you have knowledge of the previous mini-series and the current ongoings.

    There is so much chronological baggage that it is difficult to get into the story. A threat of leaking Autobot war crimes definitely peaks my interest though, and the art looks great.
