    I was expecting a swerve of some sort at some point in this series. What happens at the end of this issue truly took me for a loop. And that shows how great Kirkman is at this. Read Full Review

    :Void Rivals #4 impressively continues to build on the intricate storytelling and expert pacing of the series. Robert Kirkman's skillful narrative explores the Zertonians' reactions to Solila's return and offers promising revelations for Darak and Solila's journey. The mix of space politics and humor keeps readers engaged, but occasional detours into setting up the new universe can be distracting. I can positively say this book is one of the best coming out right now. Read Full Review

    VOID RIVALS #4 ups the stakes and widens the conspiracy when Solila takes Darak before her leader as a prisoner. The mystery behind Sacred Ring grows increasingly intriguing, the surprise Transformers connection is fun, and the reading experience is smooth as glass. Read Full Review

    The latest issue of the sci-fi epic ramps up the political drama as the story takes us straight into Zertonian territory. Solila's homeworld is the stage for the comic to deliver more of its fascinating world-building and strong character development. Read Full Review

    Beautifully crafted, Void Rivals #4 adds new dynamics to our protagonists and the complexity of the worlds they occupy. In a story boasting giant transformers, intergalactic mercenaries, ancient species, and so much more, it is incredible that as a reader I am so invested in the lives of two individual characters whose names and races I didnt even know a few weeks ago, and whose fates seem almost inconsequential given the scale and scope of what surrounds them. Yet I am at the edge of my seat to see what Void Rivals #5 has in store for us, and what will come next for Darak, Solila, and their two worlds. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 27, 2023

    Void Rivals #4 works as a piece of the puzzle. But, on its own it's a bit too easy to guess what will happen. The writing is entertaining and art is great, but its only surprises are weird transitions in its focus, not the story itself. With some small changes tying its to plots together, the comic might have been stronger, but as is, it's one for the hardcore Transformers fans who want to get first appearances and key issues in what Skybound is laying the groundwork for.

    This is a decent sci-fi story, but an odd way to start Image's new Energon Universe. Read Full Review
