I don't want that to happen, but it would not surprise me to see some major shakeups post-Unicron. In the meantime I'll do what I can buying multiple covers every month in my desperate bid to throw money around trying to prevent the inevitable.

Or... maybe it just ends? I mean, let's face it, MTMTE was not going to last forever and Season 3 is pretty clearly going to be the final season. I'm sure they'll give James enough space to wrap everything up while also preparing for the inevitable soft-reboot that happens post-Unicron.

^That's a good re-wording of what I was trying to say :) I think this is either it, as Roberts has always been clear that the story has an ending that is known to him, or this is the lead up to a stretch that is the end.

Of course, the intended title for the finale is "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" iirc. While yes, that's a song title, I think it's a fun and possibly unintended spin on the old "It never ends!" Furmanism.

Dropping in to say I loved this issue. The twist was well executed, character-driven, and satisfying. First time in a long while I felt a wave of WTF pass over me in a totally didn't-see-it-coming way.

I haven't gone through all the negative posts, but will have to do so later. Very intrigued to read why everyone's crapping all over this issue.

Sneak Peek - IDW Transformers: Lost Light #11

Thanks to iTunes, we have a new preview for the upcoming Transformers: Lost Light #11! Lost Light #11 picks up where #10 left off, serving as the middle chapter of the Mutineers Trilogy. We left off last issue with the reveal that there were many crewmembers who had been reduced to sparks, brains, and spines in engex containers, other crewmembers who were questioning the decision to go with the mutiny, some of those mentioned crewmembers stuck in a brain memory loop including the Protectobots, Thunderclash, and Mirage, and a Getaway that is far more ruthless and more dictatorish than when we previously saw him almost 2 years ago. This chapter starts with the mutiny recruiting story, with Getaway telling someone in Rung's office about how the process went down. While the person may be Rung, it is highly unlikely, and we are left wondering who he is really talking to.

Check out the 3 page preview below, and let us know what you think of these new pages in the comments section below!

Success? The crew of the Lost Light, led by the mutinous Getaway, is now only weeks away from completing their quest. But such remarkable progress comes at a price. Just how far is their new captain prepared to go to find Cyberutopia? Unfortunately for the likes of Riptide and First Aid, it turns out the answer is “very far indeed.”

Hearts? Really? Is this book even trying to pretend to be serious any more?

I don't know; the part where Atomizer has his gun under the table, pointed at Mainframe (just in case), was a nice touch. Not all the little details are bad.

Wow, Getaway really has become just cartoonishly evil at this point, hasn't he? I got the impression when this whole mutiny thing started, that Getaway was at least working from the extreme but not unreasonable perspective of "high command gave the guy responsible for the the deaths of thousands of my friends wrap on the wrist and a position of authority, what a slap in the face to the people who fought and died because of this guy. He's gotta go, it's only fair, our other captain is a moron anyway."

I didn't read the last issue, so the rest of you might not be surprised at this point, but this makes the whole situation a lot less compelling for me. Also, he's gotta be talking to Froid, right?

when i saw the dive in art quality i went trade for lost light (along with the fact that the "No 1" launch gimick meant my retailer didnt get an issue in till no 3) and after issue 6 of OP i did the same for it too.

i havent read it yet as it only arrived in the post yesterday but its a good HALF the price of individual issue for me and its the format i keep up to in titles ive dropped but still have an interest in. currently im a good halfway through hickmans run on FF for instance- with an aim to get to his secret wars "event" where anything worth buying at marvel comics ended :D :D :D

the time lag is a bastard.

it means ya cant come in and have casual posts with fellow seibertronians as you wont be up to speed for months on end. trade 2 of lost light for instance wont be out till march 18 so while i drop in now and again to see previews i cant really discuss something without ruining a story for myself. the flip side of course is you get the whole story at once.

i remember the bitching that was going around back in the furman days and the complaints about how slow "inflitration" and the like was in individual issues. pretty much everyone agreed it read better as a trade. in furmans defense he's admited that "writing for the trade" is the business model now though.

i will say its ALOT easier to store the trades too.

A touch and detail from something we were aware of for almost two years now. Maineframe was right upfront when the mutiny was reveled in the very same issue we saw them meeting up with people with the nudge gun under the table. It’s a detail that’s completely irrelevant and pointless to be pointed out.

That's a pretty ungenerous posture. If someone appreciates that detail, why take their enjoyment away?

Actually it isn't, it explains the difference in the crew that goes to Necroworld the first time vs. the second time. Mainframe, Hound, Atomizer, and Riptide were doing homework, not paling around. This flashback scene occurs during the events of issue 40, so it works out as the first trip to Necroworld is in 44.

If you're looking for something to be negative about, Thunderclash being there is an actual continuity error, unfortunately
