Five years ago, Rodimus and a collection of traumatised, lovelorn and/or sarcastic Autobots set off on a quest to find Cyberutopia. So far, they've made a right hash of it. They've misplaced their map. They've lost their ship, the Lost Light, to a mutinous escapologist. Oh, and they're dead.
THE REVOLUTION MAY BE OVER–but the future is just beginning! Ripped from the pages of the hottest crossover of the year, the REVOLUTION team of John Barber and Fico Ossio continue the action! KUP is a CYBERTRONIAN literally older than the universe; ACTION MAN is the ultimate special agent trying to live up to an impossible legacy; MAYDAY is a G.I. JOE leader trying to rescue her first command; and BLACKROCK is a CYBERTRONIAN that thinks he’s a human. It takes the mind-bending clash of ROM versus MAJOR BLUDD and the OKTOBER GUARD to bring this unlikely team together… and the secret they learn threatens to unravel the entire universe.

Making his first appearance at a Transformers convention, we are thrilled to announce artist and creator Jack Lawrence as a guest of TFNation 2017!
Jack first came to the attention of TF fans through his work with the TRANSMASTERS community in the 1990s, working with the likes of Nick Roche and James Roberts. His comics journey has come full circle recently, joining James and Alex Milne as part of the new creative team for the MTMTE follow-up LOST LIGHT, issue#1 of which will be released shortly.
Along the way, Jack has worked for a wide range of publishers, from Dark Horse to Image comics, Panini, 2000ad and many more, covering characters such as TMNT, Dr Who, Sinister Dexter, Skylanders and Jackie Chan... Tell us you wouldn’t like to see those last two in a crossover! In addition, you can also find Jack’s work in many reference books, from the likes of Eaglemoss Publications and Hatchette UK.
Fans of independent comics may also be familiar with Jack’s ongoing collaboration with Adam Lawrence, TINPOT HOBO, following a crew of Custodians as they try to enforce the law in the chaos of space. For those unfamiliar with the project, check out the official website at http://www.tinpothobo.com/home.html where you can find character bios, ship descriptions and much more about this well thought out and immersive universe.
Jack will be signing autographs and selling sketches and artwork in our guest area all weekend. Launch tickets, bedrooms, pricing, further guests and activities will be announced in the coming months. Keep monitoring this frequency.
