    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Nov 8, 2023

    TRANSFORMERS #2 mixes equal parts well-done exposition, action, and emotion when the Autobots take stock of their new home while the Decepticons go on a deadly rampage. Johnsons reimagined Transformers feels familiar but more mature, and the art is fantastic. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 8, 2023

    Transformers #2 begins to deviate a bit from the classic comic delivering a bit more gore (humans are so squishy) but it also expands the world as well. Much like Void Rivals, we get teases of something bigger coming, the full “Energon Universe.” As said before, it's the details of the issue that stand out including setting up motivations for what's to come on all sides. Fans of Transformers and G.I. Joe won't want to miss this issue but it continues a solid start for those new to both to dive in to and enjoy. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 11, 2023

    A good second issue builds nicely on the first, while fleshing out the characters and building out the larger world. Though I still don't think it's telling a particularly new or unique Transformers story. Read Full Review
