You should be able to tell whether it is something you’ll like by the end of the first issue or two but I’d agree that it’s objectively the best transformers comic from a critical perspective. That doesn’t mean it’s wrong to dislike it—just that it’s probably because you’re bringing something to the experience that you can’t get over. For example, the people that don’t like how Rodimus is characterized (who I think often exaggerate his portrayal as overly negative which I didn’t get in my read through). The only thing I’ll disagree on is that you don’t need a warning away from the later stories. You should be completely capable of understanding when the story hits low points and the reasons why. Still, if you like the characters there will be things to enjoy even as the story meanders around.
