    Ending a universe in one six-part series is no easy task. But this issue has cemented Barber's ability to do so. A masterful blend of action, character, emotion and politics, Unicron #2 is filled with all the Transformers content you could ask for in such a climatic and explosive event. And with one of the most kick-ass artistic teams ever, there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't be reading Transformers: Unicron. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Clayton Hinojosa Jul 25, 2018

    Alex Mine and Sebastian Cheng have caught my eye on this book compared to any other Transformers title due to the way they are able to make each character vibrant in their own way and pop with their corresponding color. With each transformer having their own unique look, it was never difficult to see who was talking, and the attention to detail helped us to believe the consistency with a battle damaged Optimus Prime and others from the issue prior. I never saw just a panel full of robots, I saw true detail in each autobot and decepticon. Read Full Review

    This issue was more about the characters dealing with each other rather than characters dying at the hands of Unicron.  Starscream stands out in particular.  This series is so amazing and everyone should read it whether or not they have read previous Transformers issues. Read Full Review

    The issue is a solid second one. The first evoked our childhood and this second one evokes our adulthood and the reality we now live in. As usual, when it comes to Transformers comics, there's more than meets the eyes. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Aug 2, 2018

    Despite the back-up tale,Unicron #2is a good breather after a whirlwind of an opening chapter. The discussions between the characters are strong and Barber balances the cast well while Milne's art is one of the strongest points of the issue. As the IDW universe comes to an end,Transformers: Unicronis shaping up to be an interesting and fitting end to it all. Read Full Review
