Re: Lost Light #10

Dammit, I just had to go and forage this issue back out of the recycling bins, I threw it away by mistake as I kept it in a folded newspaper for safekeeping in my bag :(

Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

So after a bit of a hiatus, I think the past two issues have got us back on track, at least a bit. We now have a plausible villain who's been behind load of stuff seeded throughout the series, which leads into a really dark ending with plenty of fridge horror. Also, Flame. Who doesn't love a good Fl...

Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

I don't care. I don't believe it's intentional that he made Tailgate such a terrible character, and if he did, he did too good a job because quite frankly I was tempted to cheer Fangry on. In fact, I only probably didn't because Fangry murdered a guy to do it. That's pretty much how I feel about it...

Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

If I were to point the finger anywhere, it would be squarely at the relaunch. I really liked More than Meets the Eye - Smooth's right, it was freaking magic and I think a lot of that had to do with the title and the concept. None of the characters were who they appeared to be, nothing anyone said co...

Lost Light #3

I picked this up and was quite pleased with the way it's going, even if I was a bit miffed to find out it's part 3 of however many it's going to be - I think I'm assuming at this point that it's another 6-parter, to allay any expectations of swift resolution. So the Rung reveal turns out to be a Fun...

I don't know if I'm the only one still reading this, but it's still going along (though late this month). I quite enjoyed this issue though I will admit certain characters are starting to grate (Rewind, Tailgate, I'm looking at you) while the new characters seem to have fallen into some kind of four...

I really liked the fact that the Big Bad was taken out by a minor character that they only introduced last issue and who can't even speak. All of Sentinel's plotting and scheming and carefully-laid plans and then he just gets knocked down a big hole. :D :D :D The table-flipping and the argument over...

I bought the Sentinel Prime one and quite enjoyed it, though I was waiting for someone to mention that Megatron made a chair out of Sentinel's armour, which surely warrants some sort of nod. Intrigued to see Soundwave and Prime working together, I might try and catch up on ex-RID at some point. Tota...

All credit to Roberts, though, it was punch-the-air bloody brilliant to see it again. Especially after he teased it all the way back in Chaos Theory where Ratchet was worried he might do "that thing with the eyes" - just absolutely first rate Megatronning all round. His arc this past season has basi...

FWIW I'm sure Glitch is an already-existing character in the IDWverse, though given the nature of MTMTE I'm almost certainly wrong about which one.

Like Megatron, I was heartbroken at what happened to Ravage.

MTMTE untouched? Rather, you can assume that any involvement will make sense to that series and not change what James has built. OK now I'm panicking.

Re: MTMTE #53

It does seem as if Roberts is tying up a lot of loose ends here and I thought the reveal was very well handled, with plenty of clues and foreshadowing dotted throughout the series that in retrospect make a lot more sense. I suspect Nightbeat will get to the bottom of the Rung's altmode mystery next ...
