Lost Light #12

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!

Lost Light #12

Post by Yaya » Sat Jan 13, 2018 3:09 am

Well, I was a bit underwhelmed with this issue, unlike the last two. It wasn't bad, like the earlier issues of Lost Light, but was missing something.

I was excited to see Star Saber return, but very disappointed in the battle between him and Defensor. There are times (many times, actually) I yearn for the Figueroa days of old with incredibly well-rendered battles that lasted two pages instead of two panels. Defensor just fell apart with one sword swipe ala the original Transformers cartoon. I think Roberts is a very cerebral guy, and certainly that's made MTMTE and Lost Light different from other TF tales of yore, in a good way. But I do wish every now and then he'd take a page out of Budiansky's or Furman's book, and give us one of those grand ole slug fests. Defensor vs. Star Saber would have been a perfect opportunity to do that. Wonder what the Figster is up to these days?

Anyway, Cybertopia. Finally.
"But the Costa story featuring Starscream? Fantastic! This guy is "The One", I just know it, just from these few pages. "--Yaya, who is never wrong.

I was also underwhelmed by the issue. So much so that I didn't even make the thread. Thanks for doing so, bud.

But...holy hell, they found it! They got there! I cannot wait to see what happens next!
