At Lights End, Titans Rise
A semi-spoilerish Seibertron.com Review of More Than Meets The Eye 57

Transformers News: IDW More Than Meets The Eye #57 Review
Hold back your tears for a little longer folks


Synopsis
END OF THE ROAD! On Luna 1, the scale of SENTINEL PRIME's ambition becomes shockingly apparent—and while RED ALERT struggles to separate friend from foe, PROWL convinces FORTRESS MAXIMUS to take the ultimate gamble.

Story

More Than Meets The Eye has taken us on some amazing voyages, traveling space, time, and all manner of other things. And here we are, issue 57, the last issue to bear the More Than Meets The Eye banner. And the series conclusion was nothing to be disappointed about either.

The Titans Return crossover to end the title is still a bit wonky seeing as how Transformers has yet to hit shelves, but we do reach this conclusion and Transformers can still tie up its part of the story. But for now, let's focus in on a few characters, namely Red Alert. As with last issue, I loved the Red Alert arc, and he once again made the issue. Red Alert's long standing mental trauma is finally brought to the light it was meant to be in, and it is handled very well. All the flashbacks, all the inner-mind battles, and Red Alert makes his character and owns the storyline as if it were his, not the titans.

Transformers News: IDW More Than Meets The Eye #57 Review
Yeah, this guy...


Of course there are other characters, and they get their fair share of the light. Prowl goes some way towards incorporating his Sins of the Wreckers experiences, while still mainly being the momentous prick we've come to know him as. Fortress Maximus shows his character development as well, and Cerebros makes a good stand of himself despite only appearing in 2 whole issues out of 57. Serious, Cerebros got some good character in these 2 issues, and he has become one of my favorites. Sovereign doesn't skimp on his part either, and Sentinel is just... Sentinel.

Transformers News: IDW More Than Meets The Eye #57 Review
...and this guy. Awesome... and slightly funny


Art

Priscilla Tramontano once more takes up art duties and once again she does a very good job of bringing these characters to life. If there is one thing that I could pick over the others, it would need to be her use of expressions. Several of the characters in this story have faceplates, and she somehow makes them almost more expressive than those with actual faces, and it makes for a great read. Cerebros once again nails it in this category, and there is no one panel that he looks bad in.

Transformers News: IDW More Than Meets The Eye #57 Review
When I try to tell Va'al he's wrong


Coloring is done by Joana Lafuente, and her colors mesh well with Tramontano's lines and expressions. Darkness and light blend together in beautiful shades, and the story's main setting at night is done well, with the sky dark and lighting up as the events of the story unfold underneath it.

Lettering is once more done by the great Tom B. Long, and his words and action phrases flash across the screen as they should: pronounced when need be, emphasized when need be, always looking good. (We're not letting Red analyze his speech patterns again)

Oh, and Table flips. We get one more of those.

Transformers News: IDW More Than Meets The Eye #57 Review
And when Va'al realizes I Was Right


Final Thoughts

And here we are, 57 stories into More Than Meets The Eye, and we have found the end of this road. A journey that started almost 5 full years ago has hit a final point, the end of the quest, the final voyage. And it could not have gone out on a better note. This story was a joy to read and well worth picking up. It feels like the finale it was meant to be, and it is very entertaining to many audiences. The series has been a great read, and this story symbolizes all that was good about and with it.

And with that, everyone is good. Every loose plot line has been tied up, the fate of all the characters ever introduced to the series has been finalized. Everyone is happy. Success has happened. The story is fully complete.


And so it E---
Transformers News: IDW More Than Meets The Eye #57 Review


but wait, it never Ends....

More Than Meets The Eye may be over, but the story will continue on! Transformers: Lost Light will pick up where we have ended, and is essentially Season 3 of More Than Meets The Eye in everything but in name, similar to how Transformers: Prime picked up that Beast Hunters line.

Now, your comics shops will see the new title and not the fact that they are the same story, so make sure you are subscribing to Lost Light, and we will start anew, all those plot threads ready to be continued on, in December!

Remember a time about 14 years ago when Dreamwave comics were running and then they ended with some plot threads left glaringly unattended? Well fear no more! Simon Furman, the writer at the time, as placed the unpublished scripts on Ebay for £40 plus postage & packaging, and they are signed by him as well! You can find that auction HERE. So go out and buy your own, as they are limited.

For the first time, all the unpublished scripts by Simon Furman from the end of the Dreamwave era of Transformers comic books are being made available in one 'dream' package. When Dreamwave ceased publishing, several series I was writing at the time (Transformers: The War Within - Age of Wrath, Transformers: Energon and Beast Wars Transformers) ended in mid-flow, or before they'd even begun, with storylines left dangling. Since then I've made a few available at conventions but now you can pick up the lot (including the never-before-offered Energon scripts) in one fell swoop. All scripts are signed individually by myself. You get:

Transformers: The War Within - Age of Wrath #4
Transformers: The War Within - Age of Wrath #5*
Beast Wars Transformers #1
Transformers Energon #31
Transformers Energon #32
Transformers Energon #33**

*Bonus outline of Age of Wrath #6 (the conclusion)
**Bonus outline of Energon #34-36 (the conclusion)

No auctions, just a buy it now price of £40 plus postage & packaging. Will ship to worldwide.

Review of IDW REVOLUTION #1

It’s the end of September, and THE REVOLUTION has started! The multi-issue, multi-brand crossover has officially begun. IDW does its best to meet big boys MARVEL and DC on the big kids playground, to crossover in a way that they hope is as popular as the big uns’ special events. Will it make the cut? And should you care enough to pick this up?

Back Cover Tease:
Explosions rip across Earth—and all sides blame OPTIMUS PRIME and the TRANSFORMERS! G.I.JOE refuses to go quietly—and they assemble heroes big enough to stop the invaders! ACTION MAN and M.A.S.K. fight for humanity— but where do ROM and the MICRONAUTS stand?

From New York Times-bestselling writers Cullen Bunn and John Barber—and superstar-in-the-making artist Fico Ossio—comes a collision of worlds, a clash of past and future, unlike anything that has come before.

The Revolution is here— take a stand!


As the resident staff Joe guy (who also collects TFs and vice versa) who has also lived through the earliest iterations of these brands in the 70's and 80's, it fell to me to try to make some sense of this newest comic-based crossover. Well actually, Va’al’s on a sabbatical and D-MACK already handled TAAO, so that’s why it really fell to me. And that nobody else wanted to do it.

Forgive me, I write this after a day of teaching 6th grade.

THE STORY:
Like the tease says, events have happened and they are BIG! Like BIG BEN and DUKE (GI JOE guys for you TF only folks) and ORE-13 BIG. Mount Everest going boom BIG! The supposed ‘melting’ of several Joes (whom most people probably don’t know) big. VICTORION and WINDBLADE… okay, I am not sure what to say. It’s a lot of action, mostly centered around TRANSFORMERS and GI JOE. Humans’ anxiety level is at an all time high over KING PRIME declaring Earth to be a part of the galactic council (I actually believe there is a lot of hard feelings over the no tech sharing thing from OP’s previous visit)—and all the negative attention being considered ‘galactically relevant’ might bring with it (like, oh, a Transformers’ war coming to Earth wasn’t bad enough before this? C’mon Optimus…).

Transformers News: Re: IDW Hasbro Comics Crossover: Revolution - MASK, Transformers, Action Man, Micronauts, ROM, GI Joe

MORE:
There’s lots of human armed military parties running around now, and it’s hard to keep caught up with who’s really on top. ROM’s book has military types showing up to make trouble for him in his series, that seem to be directly or indirectly ordered by General Joe Colton of G.I. JOE fame, but don’t seem to be regular GI JOE. The EDC was supposedly re-made into a new more global version, and now it appears that GI JOE, yes the real GI.JOE, is now the go to gang of military types to become government sanctioned, even after being shut down by that same government previously, it seems (I’m not good at keeping up with IDW GI JOE). The weird thing is, those EDC types, who know a lot about TRANSFORMERS are still around too, but it doesn't matter because their advice and intelligence is almost always totally ignored. And by the tease, it looks like even G.I. JOE will get superseded or at best aligned with ACTION MAN and MASK, eventually.
EDC out!

Sadly, MASK does not appear in this issue, except in the same short preview at the end that we have had in several other TRANSFORMERS issues, giving us background info (and showing us Miles Mayhem and a badly dissected Blitzwing), but it becomes pretty obvious how they will become a part of it.

So that’s this issue in a nut shell. Ore-13 is blowing up. TRANSFORMERS are blamed for it. GI JOE is tasked by the very anxious world leading U.S. President to take on the TRANSFORMERS—instead of the before created EDC military group.

VISUALS:
Fico Ossio on the art, colored by Sebastian Cheng, and lettered by the nigh-infamous Tom B. Long, is much better than average. Characters are recognizable as who they should be (if you know some of these obscure JOE folks) and portray their emotions well, although heads and faces are inconsistent; from really nice on MAIN FRAME and BIG BEN profiles and 3/4 shots, to somewhat misshapen, cartoonish, and elongated SCARLETT and JOE COLTON faces and heads on full body action shots, later on. The bots are well-detailed, but the artist shows a little bit of difficulty with them at times, especially in their faces, heads, and ‘ears’, but overall does a commendable, but uneven, job. There are some truly beautiful character portraits in there, but also some that are less than, making you wonder. Finally, the ROM images generally all feel a little off, which might be intentional if a theory I have holds up.

UMM...HMMMmm...

The colors and lighting effects are well done, and work well with the line art to create an overall, visually acceptable product. TRANSFORMERS fans have had to deal with (have learned to appreciate) much ‘worse’ (opinion, of course). Tom B. Long does his normal magic with word bubbles, and sound effects, helping to move us through the action and story well.

DIALOGUE:
Character interactions feel pretty natural and help us to better understand their relationships. You can feel the coolness and calm that Optimus Prime is trying very hard to convey. You can hear Scarlett’s frustration and fury, and the military jargon that the JOEs incorporate feels realistic enough (even if the facial expressions and body language sometimes seem a little odd). There are character labels to help all of us identify the JOES, TFs, and others, if we did not already recognize them.

WRITING:
My opinion on human and TRANSFORMERS current status of interaction, as it has been written, has already been made public and sadly, has not changed after seeing this. This is the story that we’ve seen on Earth since the first early issues in Marvel G1. Humans just cannot understand Autobots versus Decepticons, and believe in the ‘all must be bad, if some are’ over generalization. Now, I do understand that you’re going to be upset if you believe the robots are just there to fight, steal, and destroy without any care for the native inhabitants, or if you’re thinking you are being misled by liars. But members of the EDC were starting to get it--to understand factions, and yet somehow their ideas and intelligence are mostly ignored. Grr… revenge!!!
“That one guy killed several of my good buddies way back when…DESTROY ALL OF THEM!”

I do like the idea of DIRE WRAITHs causing a lot of the misunderstandings, for their own ends that we are not entirely sure about. But ROM just showing up and doing what he did, without a word, where as in his own series, he’s been quite the chatty Cathy, making me and probably others believe that some of the events in ROM (this AXIOM dude that started out as a human in armor before ORE 13 was added to make him a superfreak) are most likely meant to drop clues about what may actually be going on here, with the JOES, and several other humans.

Being a little obvious, aren't we...?

I’m interested to see what part MASK plays, and VENOM of course, even if we know where they get the tech.

In different writing decisions, the GI JOE forces seem ready for immediate action even though they had seemed to be decommissioned (I have to re-read to look for time passage), but don’t seem to know anything about their target. They don’t come equipped with any weapons that do more than annoy the Transformers (except Jazz—why, must everyone always pick on Jazz?). How do you not know what kind of equipment and weapons you will need to even get close to winning a battle with them? Just ignore any EDC intel whatsoever. Now, yes, I do know that Soundwave's Operation Incapacitation took out MAINS’ (GI JOE Main Frame- I actually really dislike that nickname - MAINS- ugh), anti-Soundwave fryer, but before that the JOEs weren't really getting anywhere either. And... they don’t know that ‘the pink one’ uses swords??? What exactly have the GI JOE members been doing lately? And who was in charge of the intel for them? Or was this just sort of a run off half-cocked type mission (which is a bit confusing because Main Frame insists he was working on his Soundwave killing device for months using EDC intel—yes, he was paying attention!)?

OVERALL:

I’m interested, but with the few pieces we have along with this issue, I really, really, really hope that this overly lengthy and perhaps somewhat overused humans vs.TRANSFORMERs is resolved quickly and that everyone moves past it to work together against the DIRE WRAITHS and bad MICRONAUTS (Baron Karza, et al— who do not appear in this issue either), or some such thing like that (maybe it’s UNICRON!!!!!…)

The ORE-13 piece is probably the most interesting thing about the series for me so far, other than the official (finally) admittance/re-imagining that MASK vehicles are TRANSFORMERS based (see the DARK OF THE MOON for the first hints that it was coming, I really liked their Stealth Force attack car/alt modes.). Hasn’t been exactly said…yet, but highly hinted at.

Who should try this?

:PACMAN: :GHOST: Casual 80’s childhood guy or gal all grown up: Hell yeah! You’d probably get a kick out of this with Transformers, GI JOE, ROM, ACTION MAN and coming up…Micronauts, and MASK! My childhood hath been brought back alive again! If only VISIONARIES would make an appearance! Ore-13 won't mean anything to you, but you don't need it to.

:BOT: :WRECKERS: IDW Transformers Familiars: You may be a bit more hesitant. 'Our guys' are a focus for sure, but we’re not quite sure how they will come out when this all shakes out, and there was a lot of awesome stuff to like going on before this. They are the elder statesman and most successful comics of the bunch, and readers are not interested in losing the awesome ground that we have gained over recent years. There seem to be inconsistencies with current comic continuity, but not so huge that it can't get cleaned up. AND...we do get this ORE-13 thing to finally seem to finally, finally, shake out in full, so there's that!

:GIJOE: :COBRA: IDW GI JOE Familiars: You may just feel good that GI JOE is coming back, again, but are probably frustrated that GI JOE is coming back, yet again, seemingly rebooted, yet again (I’m not as good and up on my IDW GI JOE). I feel very badly for hardcore JOE fans. I really hope this helps to get them the great fiction that they deserve (and hopefully more of a toy line too).

:SUPERMAN: :MARIO: OTHERS: Tons of action! Aliens, robots, human elite army operatives, and end of the planet Earth peril, plus some cool new sophisticated TECHIE vehicles. Recognizable big name characters. Sounds like a try out to me! It reads like the big boys crossovers so far, with satisfactory art, I'd give it a go.


The race has begun. The journey and the finish are still in question. When the dust settles, let’s hope we all have the pieces to pick up where our favorites left us wanting more.

Generally, I believe that large crossovers are upsetting to most fandoms--or at least wanting to be mostly ignored or believed to be in another continuity. Especially when new directions are promised and ramifications can wreck what one might have been really enjoying in a separate monthly title prior to said crossover. We shall see.

TRANSFORMERS FAN SCORE :BOT: :BOT: out of :BOT: :BOT: :BOT: :BOT: :BOT: for this first issue.
