Void Rivals #10 could go down as a monumental issue for the series. It delivers massive revelations about Darak and Solila, making the connections within the Energon Universe stronger than ever. Readers keeping up with the shared universe should not miss this one!

After a year’s worth of solid releases, Skybound’s Energon Universe has been on an incredible run. With comics like Daniel Warren Johnson’s Transformers and Kelly Thompson’s Scarlett dropping fantastic issues every month, the phenomenal line of comics shows no signs of slowing down. But while the Autobots and G.I. Joe hold things for their respective franchises, it’s always great to catch up on Void Rivals, the series that kickstarted the whole initiative. Created by Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Delici, the series continues to deliver its stellar sci-fi story set in a largely unexplored corner of the Energon Universe. But with issue #10 comes big revelations that strengthen the universe’s connections more than ever. Keep on reading for my full review of Void Rivals #10! 


Proximus and Springer engage in a vicious battle against each other, with neither side respecting what the other is capable of. But while that fight rages on, Darak tends to Solila as she can barely stand because of her injuries. Only after the duel does Springer take the two Void Rivals to his home and tend to their wounds. However, after the Autobot analyzes their bodies, he brings to light truths about their origins they never could have expected.

Since my last review of Void Rivals was for issue #8, it feels good to be back talking about the series. And boy, did I pick one hell of an issue to jump into. Issue #10 hits the ground running with a jaw-dropping fight sequence between Proximus and Springer which has them both going through their full arsenal of weapons and tricks. Getting to see a Transformer in action in Lorenzo De Felici’s fantastic art style already makes the price of the comic more than worth it already. But the flashy and fast-paced action is only the tip of the iceberg. The issue delivers plenty of great interactions between Darak, Solila, and Springer, making me very happy with the dynamic the fan-favorite Autobot brings to the table. There are also bits of political intrigue mixed into the story through cutaways to Premier Zalilak’s actions in Zertonia. By the end, I was impressed by how much was packed into just one issue.

But the hits don’t stop there! Issue #10 drops some major revelations about the Sacred Ring that drastically shift the story of Void Rivals, making their place within the Energon Universe clearer. And with Springer seemingly becoming a mainstay in the series, the ties with the Transformers are stronger than ever. After a year of great storytelling across different comics, it’s fun to see the development of the Energon Universe paying off in spades. The shared universe feels as robust as ever with all the connections sprouting across the comics. In a way, these deeper connections add a layer of unpredictability because so many possibilities now feel like they can happen. It leaves a die-hard fan like myself extremely excited for what’s to come down the line.

Final Thoughts

If you’ve been following what’s happening in Skybound’s Energon Universe, then Void Rivals #10 cannot be missed. The issue has everything that makes the comic series such a fun ride. While it delivers plenty of action and charming character moments the series is known for, the big revelations dropped bring major implications for the rest of the shared universe. Robert Kirkman and Skybound are cooking up something fierce with the Energon Universe, and this issue adds another crucial piece to the big picture they are putting together. As much as the comics have brought great stories already this last year, this issue shows that things have only just begun. I can’t wait for what comes next!
