Yknow much as in excited for Milne on LL, I think it was really for the best that we switched. Not only have I grown to love Lawrence's art but it's well known that Robert's style of very detailed scripts doesn't gel well with Milne's desire for creative freedom. I don't think for a minute there's any bad blood between the two, but I feel a break can have only been a good thing.
Also agreed windsweeper (though about different characters, riptide I kinda expected but percy?), though in gonna assume that all is not sunshine and rainbows aboard the LL. By these covers thunders clearly ain't too keen, and First Aid almost certainly won't be either- I wonder who else is gonna be on their side when push comes to shove. It might be we have a full fledged mutiny...iny. Mutinutiny? Hmmmm, I don't wanna go for the obvious "mutinception" but nothing else works quite as well :lol:

iTunes Preview for IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10

Postby Va'al » Wed Oct 04, 2017 3:24 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
And finally, in our iTunes previews of upcoming IDW Publishing comics today, we have the first three pages of the series featuring the actual ship after which the series itself is titled: Lost Light #10, and the return of Getaway's crew (for three issues at least)! Check it out below, and head back here in a couple of weeks for more.

HOMECOMING! FIRST AID, the Autobots' Chief Medical Officer, returns to the Lost Light to find that everything has changed: the ship is now under the command of the treacherous GETAWAY, half of his closest friends are missing, and—most shocking of all—the crew is actually making progress...

And in one corner, Rook!

Defensor separated at the conclusion of Combiner Wars, when Mirage and the other Protectobots took their shuttle back to the Lost Light.

I'm talking pure idw fiction only.

I'm a fan of that club story though...much better then some of the stuff that's been coming out lately from idw.

Anyways why the hell does everyone in the book keep talking like Rodimus or like an internet person.

There's non-cringey recent TFCC fiction!? Gonna have to check that out. Last thing I tried was a story about Go Bots that read like a 7th grader's creative writing assignment.

Great to the forgotten crewmembers of the Lost Light.

Be nice to see Pointblank, Twinferno or Boss get some characterisation.

Any of them really. So tired of Tailgate and the main cast.

One question, who is the Autobot at the back with the black and white face and bat/dragon wings. Looks kind of feminine.

You're missing out, man. Beast Wars Uprising is some of the best TF fiction ever made.

Now we are finally where I wanted to be. I am excited for the arc, which is funny cause so far Scorponok has been the only exciting thing about LL so far.

Also, yay for Rook!!! finally!

Didn't Tailgate get buried by Fangry without anyone else knowing, thus relegating him to the same fate he was subjected to before he made it onto the Lost Light?

I'm exited that First Aid is getting some screen time. I am also interested in Rook because I haven't seen much about him. Plus I dig all things fire and rescue so I am stoked when any character related to those fields gets some of the spotlight.

Likewise! I'd almost forgotten how much I love the dude. Couldn't even tell you why I'm so fond of him, I think he's just... very genuine. And him taking ratchet to task over the whole retiring/being stuck at second best kinda really struck a chord with me. Powerful stuff that I think is too often forgotten been people talk about mtmte highlights.

According to Amazon, Nov. 7th

https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-Los ... 1631409921

I would note though -- this only compiles #1 - #6 of Lost Light. That is the length of the whole first arc, but #7 which isn't included is largely an epilogue of that arc so you might miss out a little.
