    Kirkman and team continue to tell a captivating story in this new chapter of Void Rivals. I love the dynamic between Darak and Solila, and appreciate the callbacks to the weirder elements from Transformers G1 & The Transformers: The Movie. The inclusions all seem to have a purpose, moving the narrative along while providing additional enjoyment for those of us who grew up watching the robots in disguise. De Felici and Lopes' art style and color choices are more impressive with each passing issue, ensuring that the outer space adventures of these characters are striking and rich. Read Full Review

    Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici deliver the best issue of this series to date with Void Rivals #3. Darak and Solila continue to stand out as strong leads. The integration of Transfomers is both handled to naturally be part of the development in the story and give fans of the franchise moments to get excited over. The ending of Void Rivals #3 is a strong hook to want to learn what is truly going on with Darak and Solila. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Aug 16, 2023

    VOID RIVALS #3 is an adventurous, entertaining entry in the sci-fi series that elevates an already engaging story with equally intriguing connections to Transformers lore. Kirkmans script leans heavily into the spirit of adventure, and De Felicis art is the strongest yet. Read Full Review

    Void Rivals #3 is another issue that'll have you pointing and saying “ooo ooo ooo” when the reference is revealed. The main story itself is decent and gets intriguing at the end but so far it's seeing the connections that have been the real draw. While Void Rivals #3 isn't a must for Transformers fans, it's a fun one to pick up. Read Full Review

    The Energon Universes odd couple dives further into danger with another excellent chapter. Kirkman, De Felici and the team waste no time building the tension and turmoil to a show-stopping conclusion. Make plans to pick this issue up as the story hasnt begun to even hit its next level yet!

    AIPT - Colin Moon Aug 15, 2023

    Developing both its own unique niche and hinting at the larger Transformers aspects of the Energon Universe, Void Rivals is something impossibly unique: a compellingly self-reliant narrative working within licensed-comic territory. Read Full Review

    ‘Void Rivals' #3 moves at a quick pace with our two potential allies trying to escape the clutches of the Skuxxoid mercenary we met last issue, but not without their fair share of problems and deception. World building, fan-pleasing, but just not dramatic enough. Read Full Review

    This feels like a good old-school sci-fi story, which really captures the potential vibe of Image's foray into licensed comics. Read Full Review
