So amped for this! (what else is new?) I am a little surprised that the prose piece is not an epilogue or something. Especially since the endings tend to be a little rushed in most cases. Wonder who will take the focus in that one :-?

I hope this isn't delayed like people are saying. Delays end up being excruciating :-(

Well, #22 is supposed to be some sort of roundup/coda to Remain in Light, which is probably why the prose piece is not fulfilling that duty. :-?

So far I haven't heard of any delays, but Monstrosity has had some weird stuff going on. We'll see come the last week of September!

So, is MTMTE ending or is the Lost Light gonna peel out of theend of Dark Cybertron and keep going for an MTMTE2, or do we know, or... cause I thought Hasbro's Chirstmas 2013 catalong Dark Cybertron was being shared by MTMTE and RID, not following them.

The current storyarc, Remain in Light, is ending, MTMTE is not!

Dark Cybertron is indeed shared by both RID and MTMTE, after the one-shot issue. After Dark Cybertron, Roberts has mentioned a "season 2" of MTMTE.

Guess #9 explains the lack of previews. As much as it'll hurt, I'm going to forgo any this time. I want this to be a pure experience come Wednesday. Man, I have the distinct feeling this issue is going to melt my mind with all that will be packed in there. I can't wait :KREMZEEK:
