Re: Lost Light #25 (in 25 issue limited series)

I thought a lot of it was hot garbage.

IMO the book lost it's way a while back. I really lost interest, especially after the number reset / rebrand.

It wasn't without merit, but soooooooooo much space wasted on uninteresting ****, like the two bints, amongst others.

And **** me, the art.

Re: Lost Light #11

The last two issues have been cracking. Much more like the first season in terms of quality. Begs the question wtf was going on for the first 9 issues of LL... Some of the political satire felt unsubtle - probably crammed in relatively late in the day - mildly amusing anyway Makes some earlier issue...

Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

I'm thinking I'm out of the target market for the book now. I'm finally too old for Transformers. This comic's trying to be a modern diversity book but failing, partly because it's trying too hard and having cringey moments (like a dad trying to relate to the kids) Agree with a lot of what you said...

Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

I glad to see the back of the cnut.

We'll see if he isn't back, via "resolved off panel" within 5 pages of next issue.

I won't be losing any sleep if we never find out what Cyclonus ever saw in him the ****.

Re: There's a new Transformers movie out

I remember meeting Transformers fans at conventions and thinking

Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

Solid rivalries are needed.

UK Comic had ******* loads. This has... none?

Overlord v Megatron could / should be one. That's been dragged out to **** though.

Overlord has had **** all screen time since 2010. He should be in this comic all the ******* time.

Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

I think these are all valid. The cast is too big. And of that cast, I find quite a few of the major ones pretty uninteresting. I think the tension and urgency thing is defo traceable to the dialogue - too meta for my tastes. When most of the characters are addressing most of the situations they find...

Re: Lost Light #1

Milne imo had some "quirks" (sharp teeth, over detail) that were quite easy to chop out. He is much, MUCH better than this new chap imo. If Milne hadn't been on MTMTE, my opinion of the lines in LL would be "I don't like em" That Milne has been punted for the new guy is a joke. I can only assume it'...

I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of TF fans backed the decision.

Me and BF went to a signing and Q&A in March. N...

Re: Transformers: Revolution......changes ahead for MTMTE???

I have to say, thinking as I do that many Transformers fans are complete *****, that this news and the mental break down reaction it has cause in many of them, has brought me no end of joy.

I should probably get a life, right?

Or maybe not. I like the way I am :)

Re: MTMTE #53

I wouldn't give a **** tbh.

Of the cast list, I could lose him, Rewind, Nautica, Swerve and not care.

Swerve I'd probably be glad if he died, he's boring as ****.

It'd be a bit shocking as they're from the main list, but for me, none of em bring anything to the table that I'd miss.
