Every Shape Serves a Purpose
(Spoiler free-ish)


Synopsis (or ask Swerve)

DEATH IN THE RANKS! Rodimus and his crew are confronted by the enemy within—and not everyone will survive the encounter. Everything has been building to this: all-out war aboard the Lost Light!

Re: Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #15 Preview
Pipes and his ability for synthesis


Story

We know what's going to happen – Overlord has escaped, a massacre is imminent. Roberts, though, approaches the inevitable scenes cautiously, craftily building up those thirty minutes which Chromedome needs to exit the cell. Well, sort of. He kills someone off, then gets back to the build-up.

Crushing your feelings (and other bots) since 2010


The inhabitants of the Lost Light are still carrying on their own personal storylines as the storm hits. A lot is happening in those thirty minutes, and Roberts makes sure we are all left waiting to find out what was going on befor-- AWOOOOOGA.

Re: Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #15 Preview
AWOOOGA


The entire crew reverses to the Medibay to stop the Phase Sixer. And I mean the entire crew. Every shape serves a purpose. There are, of course, notable exceptions: Ultra Magnus makes quite the comeback from his so-far obsessive self, readers will be pleased to see. And both him and Fort Max are pivotal to the issue (and what is that blueprint in Brainstorm's lab?).

Re: Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #15 Preview
Ultra Magnus is dealing with it now


The humour typical of Roberts' stories so far is still present, before the big fight scenes and even during, but they really don't detract from the action or the tension. If anything, they add an extra layer of 'humanity' to the entire crew, leaving readers completely at loss towards the end. This reader, at least. Swerve is, as usual, the comedy relief, and while a lot of the humour does happen before the battle scenes, he pops up again mid-fight, fulfilling his role. A nice touch of referential comedy on Roberts' behalf, too.

Art

Milne provides the pencils, but EVERYONE ELSE is working on inks and colours. Seriously. Marc Deering, Brian Shearer and Phyllis Novin collaborate with Milne on the inks, and the three Js (Burcham, Perez and Lafuente) are on colours. And the effect is gorgeous.

Re: Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #15 Preview
The crew respond


The artwork conveys the scale of what is happening aboard the ship, and the colours have the task of adding the deeper emotional power of Roberts' script. The final panel, with no words, no borders, white background, delivers a wrenching, devastating blow to even the most tempered heart of steel. The last time I felt this emotional about a comic was with Craig Thompson's Blankets. A note on the lettering, too: in the most recent issues, Tom B. Long has taken Mowry and Lee's work further, finding his voice in playing with typography, and adding even more emotion to the lettering and fonts. Especially with pain and anger. There's a lot to say about someone who can write ARGH in a unique way each time.

Re: Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #15 Preview
One of many Arghs


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead.


One minor complaint – the Overlord situation seems to be dealt with pretty swiftly. I'm sure there is more to come, or I'd like to think that at least, but one issue to build up and one to climax the event feels a bit reductive.
But I suppose that is the price to pay to have such an emotional story be told in amidst all the action and fighting. And it is feelings that really leads the plot in the issue. Overlord is the cataclismic catalyst to Chromedome's tale, who is ultimately the real major character of Under Cold Blue Stars.
Alongside that, I hope that all the cut-off actions of the various crew members will be explored later in the series, revealing Tailgate's creation, Fort Max's apology, Perceptor and Rodimus' conversation about matrix mapping. Especially the latter.

Re: Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #15 Preview
Promises, promises...


To sum up, this issue is not for the weak-hearted, the emotionally-involved, the casual, the fan, the long-time and attentive reader. No, wait – this is precisely the right issue for you. If I were to choose my favourite issue from IDW so far, spanning all series, Under Cold Blue Stars would be it. It has action, humour, pain, deaths (at least four) and everything that has made More Than Meets the Eye such a good read since its inception.

Hmm, I don't know if my feels will survive this one. But I must be a Lady and face this anyway. Reading the Preview yesterday was very crushing (no pun inteneded). Not even the hilarity of the Meta fictional bomb and Swerve could ease the pain. I also made the mistake of listening to Lillium (elfen Lied) while reading the preview again. Tha made it even worse :-( .

On a brighter note, excellent review Va'al. You and Blurrz know how to make a nice exceedingly teasing but not spoilery review :KREMZEEK:

I know it might be kinda weird to say... but besides the obvious Overlord, looking at the amazing double panel spread, I can't help really wanting a classics Skids. Am I crazy, or has he been looking particularly awesome in the stories as of late? >:oP

Posted by Neurie on March 19th, 2013 @ 4:55pm CDT
If you remember the first issue I wouldn't get too attached to Skids.

"Don't let them take Skids" I think was the line if I remember rightly.....

The colours used on this issue are fantastic. Suprised the death toll is quiet so low considering it is Overlord.

Those who are now in the giant scarp heap in the sky will be sorely missed.

Okay, fair warning. The following is going to be a spoiler filled rant. Those who have not read this issue turn back now.


---------------------------------------------------------------

I expected one thing going into this comic, and that was expecting to come out of it an emotional wreck. I expected to be sad to the point of crying. I did not expect to come out of this angry and defeated. Very angry and defeated.

Angry at what? One word. Sword. WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT SWORD DOING THERE!? How did it even get there? Drift was near the med bay with Ratchet, how did one of his swords get down to the Time cell to conveniently screw things up? Unless there is another bot with swords I'm unaware of? I also don't remember that sword being in the door when CD finally got out. How did it get there? Rewind didn't have to die... he just didn't :cry:

Beyond my anger is just defeat. As soon as I saw rewind climb into the cell I knew it was over. the sword won, it was just all over. There was no stopping it. LSotW flashed into my mind as the scenes played out. When the Wreckers watched Impactor walk into the building with a gun, they all looked away and bowed their heads. they knew what was coming, so did I. I was utterly defeated by this ending. I couldn't stop it. I could barely read it. I just looked away and blinked back tears.

Dying in stupid pointless ways indeed.

PS. I may post less ranty things later once I stop feeling so miserable about this. Guess in the end it just goes to show how effective the art and writing was. Kudos to the creative team, you destroyed me :BANG_HEAD:

Good eye there. I was about ready to hate drift forever lol.

Well, now that I've calmed down a tad and the sword issue is sorted out, I have to say it was still very well done. I can only hope that rewind isn't really gone. No one in comics ever seems to die that way. Unless you see their spark snuff it there's always hope...I hope :-(

Yeah, I'll start to love it more once the emotional pain settles a bit. Wild ride, this issue.

The official Transformers facebook page has shared this week's Creator Commentary for Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #15 with series writer James Roberts. We've mirrored the commentary below for those without facebook access.

Image
PAGE 1: After being sealed inside the cell by Overlord, Chromedome quickly gets out, knowing of the chaos that’s about to ensue. Recently you’ve been testing the Chromedome/Rewind relationship. Has everything been leading to this?

JAMES ROBERTS: In several respects, yes. If I may resort to some old-school comics hype, issue #15 is a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches finale that will change everything! It marks conclusively the end of a certain era of MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE, and it does so with drama, action and death. Overlord leaves his mark.

Incidentally, the first 14 issues of MTMTE—and the annual—have set up three very significant overarching plots (well, technically four, but we’re keeping the last one below the radar for the time being), and one of them was the Overlord plot; and yes, issue #15 definitely wraps that one up.

Overlord’s had a presence in the series since way back in issue #1, when Prowl referred to him as “the cargo” in a secret conversation with two of his agents aboard the Lost Light, the Duobots Shock and Ore. The fact that Ore tried to plant a tracer on the Lost Light’s quantum engines (so that Prowl could keep tabs on the whereabouts of Overlord) led to the ship nearly blowing up, which in turn released a hidden sparkeater. It was while sealing off the sparkeater’s “den” that Red Alert first heard noises from Overlord’s secret cell. He told Rung about the noises in issue #5, then drilled a hole through the roof of the cell in issue #6 (in a story which was all about Overlord thanks to Fortress Maximus and his post-traumatic stress). Red Alert shared his secret with a comatose Rung in issue #7, only for all evidence of the conversation to be stolen by Drift (as it turned out) in the same issue. In issue #13, Rung shared his concerns with Rodimus, and in issue #14 we learned about Overlord’s origins. So yeah, we’ve threaded the idea of Overlord being on board throughout much of the series so far. In that respect, everything comes to a very definite climax in issue #15.

As for Chromedome and Rewind, or more specifically Chromedome, I consciously made issues #12 to #15 a sort of Chromedome arc (there are a lot of “Chromedome”s in that sentence). Nearly every character in MTMTE has had an issue or two devoted to them.

Image
PAGES 2 and 3: The entire Lost Light crew engages Overlord. Utter chaos and carnage ensues. How do you get to grips with a seemingly unstoppable character like Overlord? Was any of this an afterthought from LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS?

JAMES ROBERTS: Overlord is one of the most powerful Decepticons, yes, but key to his character is that he’s not a mindless thug or someone with a ten-million-year plan or someone who wants to usurp Megatron. He wants to BEAT Megatron, yes, but he harbors no dreams of ruling the Decepticons. He’s his own ’bot and has been every since going AWOL after Megatron tried to use him as a portable apocalypse. Given that he’s not on the Decepticons’ payroll, so to speak, he’s not going to fight Autobots just because they’re Autobots. In this case, he’s attacking the crew of the Lost Light because (as far as he’s concerned) they’ve tried to contain him. And don’t get me wrong: he’s not above some rage-fuelled revenge. And sometimes—often— he likes destroying people for the fun of it.

Was any of this an afterthought from WRECKERS? Well, the story ended with Overlord alive and captured, and between WRECKERS and MTMTE nothing had been seen of heard of him, and I thought the crew of the Lost Light needed a big name villain to fight, even if everything’s post-war now. I had for some time—since before MTMTE—wondered why “Phase Sixers” like Overlord and Six Shot were so much more powerful than everyone else, so as much as anything else the Overlord arc in MTMTE was my attempt at explaining that. We’ll be returning to the subject—and answering some more questions—in upcoming issues.

Image
PAGE 4: Whirl blows things up (he does that a lot) and Pipes wants to send a message to Cybertron. Was Pipes a character you’d always wanted to explore more and give depth too, since all we really had was the Sunbow cartoon and the original comics series?

JAMES ROBERTS: It’s always fun to give Whirl some page-time, yeah, and I got a chance to make a joke about depth perception, but I wanted to use this scene to remind people that the Lost Light is still unable to make contact with Cybertron. Blaster thought he’d cracked it in issue #13’s main story, but the prose story in the same issue established that he’d failed. Pipes’ conversation with him in the latest issues reinforces that for those who skipped the prose story (shame on you).

As for Pipes… he was another one of those G1 also-rans that was overlooked both as a toy and a character. I think he was in a Season 3 episode of the original TV show, and he cropped up in only one UK story, so yes, not much had been done with him. I find it hard to resist characters like that.

But you know what? He made it into MTMTE only because I knew that in issue #6 I needed Fortress Maximus to shoot a load of Autobots who, because of their color schemes, reminded him of Overlord, and he fitted the bill. Then I decided he’d be a good foil to Ratchet and Drift in the Delphi two-parter (issues #4 and #5). After that, his positive outlook on life and general eagerness made him a good fit with other diminutive ‘bots like Rewind, Tailgate and Swerve.

Image
PAGE 5: Pipes accidently runs into Overlord and gets stamped, and stamped and stamped! Poor Pipes. Having brought the character into the series, why’d he have to be the one who gets squished like this? He’s been through a few traumatic events during his life aboard the Lost Light.

JAMES ROBERTS: He dies to show that this is serious. And ironically, the fact that he’d already survived so many near-death experiences pretty much sealed his fate. And you know what? He’s not the only one who doesn’t last the issue…

Did you buy it from comixology? when it was initially released they forgot to include the prose story. I think by the next day they fixed it though because when I went to read it again it was there. It was updated automatically. If you didn't go through them I suggest contacting the customer support. It's a neat story.

Roberts has said that this will be the only issue in which Swerve's metahumour will feature, though. I'm kind of glad about that, to be honest.

Quoting TFWiki is like using Wikipedia for research: handy, but ultimately fallible. ;)

I'm not saying you're wrong, but I think there is still more development to come, that might prove or disprove out speculation so far!

Drift, Hound and Chromedome are still alive; plus the alleged necrobot looks like one of the scientists in the Institute. Coincidence? Maybe. But right now it's still all speculation! :D

Still alive now, but likely to go in the future id say.

I was trying to make the point that the most simplest answer is probably the most likely in this respect. e.g, Occams Razor. If it looks like its the Necrobot with a list of dead names, then why consider it as anything else,It probably is.
