    Emotional, heart wrenching, action packed, sombre and exciting all at once. A blend of pure greatness that continues to prove this take is more than meets the eye. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Aaron Kleinman Dec 6, 2023

    Transformers #3 is a tour-de-force. I'm not sure if the creative team is showing off or not. I'd argue they're just that freakin' amazing in general. With every issue of Transformers, I get more and more hooked on this universe and issue #3 is no exception. Get out to your shop and pick this up as quick as you can! Cause this team is only getting warmed up. Read Full Review

    Fears of alien invasion blind small-town heroes to potential allies and endanger the innocent. While Cliffjumper gets no respect in Transformers #3, the diminutive Autobots humor and determination provide the sparkle Bumblebee might have ignited. Alas, poor Bumblebee. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Dec 7, 2023

    'Transformers' continues to wow with one jaw-dropping issue after another. This time it's an all-out battle that's exhilarating and harrowing. The series has lived up to the hype and more.  Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 9, 2023

    The shot in the arm this series needed; an insane fight issue that pushes Daniel Warren Johnson's skills to a limit that he easily crosses and far exceeds. Read Full Review

  • 9.0 - Chase Magnett Dec 6, 2023

    Transformers #3 is all about escalation and the high cost associated with it and, while the fights may be impressive, its the underlying consequences and emotions that will make Transformers #4 a must-read next month, as I simply can't wait to find out what happens next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 6, 2023

    Transformers #1 felt like too much of a retread of the original animated series' debut. The second issue began to really tread its own path and Transformers #3 is absolutely going in its own direction. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Matt Fischer Dec 7, 2023

    This was an equally annoying and exhilarating read. Optimuss fight with Skywarp was a lot of fun. Im happy they didnt kill him off (yet). He is, after all, my favorite Decepticon. I guess the running joke now is that since they killed Bumblebee and Cliffjumper has kind of taken his spot, Cliffjumper is just going to keep getting blasted around and will stand right back up like Wile E. Coyote? Its an interesting little joke, but I really hope they dont make this into a Kenny thing. Give that little guy a break! As I mentioned above, the issue is also annoying, simply because these damn humans keep interfering and keep trying to kill the wrong Cybertronian! Come on people! Hes trying to save your lives! Hopefully, the next issue starts building a little bit of trust between the two races. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Dec 6, 2023

    TRANSFORMERS #3 elevates the action and the danger to humans when the warring Transformers and armed civilians create a flashfire of destruction. Johnsons edgier take on the Transformers gives the scenario a grounded, dramatic feel, and Johnsons art is action-packed. That said, the plot lacks substance after three issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 4, 2023

    Transformers #3 takes the shocking ending of the previous issue to deliver an excellent, emotionally charged third chapter to this series. The conflicts in this story are escalating at a natural pace with the humans brought in ways that add layers to the Autobots vs Decepticons war. The ending creates even more weight to what happens next, setting up 2024 to be even bigger for the Energon Universe. Read Full Review
