    Overall, this is a fun, exciting, and intriguing series. The war can go either way and the stakes get higher with every issue. IDW has knocked this one out of the park. Read Full Review

    Things take an unexpected turn, also realizing this is a mini-series, things will have to wrap up quickly by issue #5. Give this a read, it's good. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Magazzu Feb 7, 2018

    Overall, Transformers Vs. Visionaries #2 is exactly what a reader thinks of in terms of a progressing story. It might have a problem figuring out how fast it should go or where to focus its attention, but makes up for this with further great characterization and themes. It brings everything that worked in the first issue back with improvements, and is a very fun experience for the fans of these 80s action franchises. Read Full Review

    TRANSFORMERS VS THE VISIONARIES #2 demonstrates the powers of the Visionaries' magic. As vividly illustrated the conquest of the planet is, the issue seldom highlights Ironhide and his team and brushes their involvement to fight back under the rug until the very last few pages.

    . Bottom line is that they have done such a great job with all these classic toy lines and bringing them all into one coherent universe. I have honestly enjoyed this and this issue was really good so much happens to set up next issue, I can't wait to see what comes next! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Feb 7, 2018

    On art, Ossio and Garcia Cruz are a pretty great team given the reader some very nice sequences. The battles between Virulina’s people and the Spectral Knights finally showcases their powers (animal specters that come from their staffs). It’s also appreciated that they make an effort to make each character distinct - an easy problem to have with a comic based on a toy/cartoon where a lot of them could sometimes be similar.
