New TF Ongoing titles, Lost Light still lost

Over the last 25 years the Transformers have appeared in media from the exquisite to the scribbled and been licensed to the responsible and the... Pat Lee. Discussion of all the branches of TF media within!

New TF Ongoing titles, Lost Light still lost

So if I read this correctly, there will be three ongoing TF titles instead of two?

Can you say [composite word including 'f*ck']?

It's a challenge just keeping two titles in one cohesive universe, and now they want to go with three.

What're you talking about? There's only been one ongoing series for the past 5 years. A few Wreckers-centered minis, but those don't really count.

And there'll only be one going forward, albeit with a different name and number.

There's been two. One is written by Barber called Transformers, previously entitled Transformers: Robots In Disguise, and of course Transformers: MTMTE. Both are like on issue #55. So two.

If I'm reading this article right, MTMTE will continue, albeit under the new title Lost Light and Transformers becomes Optimus Prime by Barber. Finally, the third ongoing is Marghreid Scott's Til All are One, which is the Windblade focused onging.

So yeah, looks like there will be three ongoings.

I think what the prof is saying is that they're ******* crap apart from MTMTE, so ******* crap that they don't merit being counted

Ah. Sarcasm is more difficult to detect from Japan, you see. From the UK, it's loud and clear.

In the past, I would have been thrilled with three ongoings. But now, I see the other two as a means of sucking more and more potential cast away from MTMTE.
