    While Optimus Prime #25 next week will bring wonderful closure to this line, I think its the final part of this issue that will stick with me most from Barber's run. It simply has to be read to be believed. In every way, Barber brings home this event with the flourish and cinematic scope that one would expect from such a climatic issue. Filled with massive action, heartfelt goodbyes and beautifully small moments, this is a brilliant send-off to so much of Barber and IDW's Transformers Universe. Read Full Review

    Transformers: Unicron #6may not tick all of the boxes of a grand finale, but John Barber does deliver the emotion and make many of the sacrifices feel tragic and bittersweet. His depiction of Optimus, and the subversion of the normal solution, is a welcome one that ties up Optimus' arc throughout the current phase of IDW's stories. The finale, and the series itself, were not perfect, but is still is a great send off to the current continuity. The artwork from each artist is well done even if their styles are inconsistent with one another. Despite that and some story elements,Unicron #6is a worthy send off for many of bots as well as Barber's tenure on the franchise. Read Full Review
