We know that the current IDW Publishing Transformers universe (including the various Hasbro branches now part of the same narrative world) will be coming to an end as of Unicron: Darkest Hour #6 - which will coincide with the conclusion of both current ongoing series Optimus Prime and Lost Light, too. The writer of the latter, James Roberts, part of the current identity of the IDW Transformersverse (Phase 2, in any case) with John Barber and Mairghread Scott, has casually thrown out on his Twitter account that his stay with Transformers will also be taking a break, as there are no plans as of yet to be involved with the reboot.

Several fans have been following Roberts' work thus far, and appreciated what More Than Meets the Eye and Lost Light have done for the Transformers franchise, and after also losing (as far as we know) Mairghread Scott, this is a fairly big factor going forward after September. Join the discussion in the Energon Pub, and let us know your thoughts on the news!

Haha! This has never happened before: “Are you the Transformers guy?” in the local Waitrose. Not for much longer, mate.

Me and Transformers are taking a break after LL#25.

Found on Weibo, and courtesy of user 强值装甲玩具铺, we have news of a translation into Chinese of the IDW Publishing Beast Wars comics series - including The Gathering, The Ascending, and the Beast Wars Sourcebook, effectively translating the Omnibus version of the collection - at the hands of writer Simon Furman, artists Don Figueroa, Guido Guidi, Josh Burcham, assistant writer Ben Yee, and a slew of artists working on the Sourcebook.

The translation seems to be completed already, and can be purchased from Taobao - as this listing appears to also be the original source of the post - as distributed by DMan for 165 Yuan (approx 27 USD at the time of writing).

The Good War
A Review of Transformers: Lost Light #17

Generally Spoiler-Free
Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Hey, that's not the name of the series!

A week early, the second part of Lost Light's "The Everlasting Voices" trilogy of issues arrives, picking up directly from the end of issue 16 and its long awaited final page revelation. Rodimus and his crew have apparently reached some kind of afterlife or purgatory, but some of them aren't ready to accept this as their fate leading to the primary conflict of the story. This latest chapter sheds more light on whether or not that's even a worry for the team while simultaneously advancing characterizations, the overall IDW Transformers mythology, the series' main plot, and more "B" and "C" side-plots than you'll be able to believe in just 20 pages.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Everything is fine.

As the end of everything approaches, at least for this Transformers continuity, Lost Light now feels like it's in full stride with moving the series along into its last 160-ish pages of the quest. I mention this on the off chance you're reading this review and are curious if this is a good time to jump in and start reading these comics, now that the end is near. I'm happy to tell you that it is! Just don't start with this one. Go back to at least Lost Light #1 and this will be waiting for you at the end of one excellent binge.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Mortilus of House Bolton

It would be difficult to point out the sundry of ways, both small and large, that Lost Light #17 achieves precisely what a middle chapter ought to without burying the review in spoilers. A few key moments are worth a somewhat purposely vague mention here regardless, in particular the part-flashback, part-montage sequence expanding on a concept first discussed in significant detail all the way back in the 2012 More Than Meets The Eye Annual. It reminds me of Marvel UK's 150th issue where Simon Furman presents what could be taken as a long-winded exposition dump and crafts it in such a freaking cool way that you won't care even if you generally don't like those types of sequences.


Another smaller, yet still ultimately and pointedly significant element which strikes a similar chord involves Nautica and the consequences of more recent events in Lost Light issues #8 and #9 . Near the point where this latest installment draws to a close, and just when everything starts to make sense, it unwinds in an almost brutally unapologetic way. Immediately thereafter, yet another moment somehow, in some way, twists the landscape even further right before leaving you alone to think about what you witnessed for another month while you await issue 18 with yearning anticipation. If this anticipation doesn't hit you then, it's likely to be caused by at least one of several other moments in the issue that will set off a light bulb in your head right before smashing it to pieces - in a good way.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Just in time to be wrong again, Rungspiracy returns

The events contained within Lost Light #17 require a deft hand to have the appropriate impact, and the lines of Jack Lawrence supplemented by the lighting and palette of Joana Lafuente deliver. On the line work, while I've said much about the emotive gestures and facial expressions Lawrence is capable of in the past, this issue also demonstrates a wisdom of knowing when to go the other direction and include an element of stoicism in the visual character work. Lafuente has a more subtle challenge with the setting varying from a darkened room to a darkened starscape over a dark metal planetary surface to dark-ish interior corridors, with only the slightest break in between. Characters are kept vivid while not looking like cut-outs despite the sometimes high contrast between their own colors and the background, adding to the surrealism of the scenario unfolding through the plot itself. Tom B. Long once again contributes in new, surprising ways, using varied fonts that add to both the visible storytelling and the perception of events from the reader's perspective.

The cover budgets look to have been scaled back, with two covers readily available and a third retailer incentive cover that is, as it was on issue 16, line art of the "A" cover for the issue. The colored version sold as the "A" cover, by Lawrence and Lafuente, is shown in this news story's thumbnail, and as always you can look up all the covers, credits, and potentially-spoiler-laden character appearances in our Vector Sigma Database entry for Lost Light #17.

Verdict
Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Rodimus knows the importance of a good lawyer

This was an easy review to write. Quite a bit happens and it all either makes sense while providing answers or creates genuinely exciting new questions. Nothing is lingered on for too long but the important moments are still made to feel as such while leaving room for other developments to stoke the flame of desire for the arrival of the next chapter. I can't think of anything else to ask for out of a book published in a serial format. For those that have been following this series and predecessor More Than Meets The Eye, this is going to be a very good Wednesday.

Questions are possibly answered. Rodimus makes possibly bad, yet well intended decisions. The murky history of the Transformers' origin in IDW is possibly made clear. Relationships are possibly deepened for some, and for others, a desired sense of closure is possibly attained. Ratchet is possibly right about everything. In short, this 17th installment of Lost Light is possibly a quintessential example of what James Roberts and the plethora of creative talents associated with the series do best. You'll laugh, you'll think, and you might even cry. To borrow (and transform) a phrase from the late, great Jim Valvano, that's a full book.

A Prime is a Prime is a Prime
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
“The Falling,” Part 3: Onyx Prime sows the seeds of chaos and panic on Cybertron as he reveals dark secrets… but nothing will prepare Optimus Prime and his allies for Onyx’s darkest revelation!

“The Falling,” Interlude. All hope seems lost as Onyx Prime confronts Optimus—but why has Onyx returned? What’s his ultimate goal? Millions of years worth of mysteries are solved as the secret history of Onyx Prime is finally revealed!

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
and we're here to tell you


Story
If you read the synopsis section just above, you will notice that there are two of them rather than the single issue - that is because this week, and this review, has two issue of the Optimus Prime ongoing series being released by IDW Publishing. To avoid spoilers as much as possible, we decided to talk about both in the same text, and I am taking extra care to talk more about narrative and execution than plot specifically. Nothing different than usual, just a little more vagueness, if you'll bear with me.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
yeah, pretty much


With that all said and out of the way, then: John Barber has decided to take a very different turn for The Falling. Weird, even. His writing hasn't shied away from time displacement and travel, black hole paradoxes, and the consequences of all of the above notions at play (just look at Syndromica and Dark Cybertron, or even Revolutionaries). But here, we reach a whole new level of temporal and narrative freedom - to varying degrees of success.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
His words, not mine


In #17, the story continues, as the aftermath of Soundwave's actions in #16 is addressed and Onyx Primal gets more terrifying by the frame in his actions, words, and clear direction forward (which looks a lot like backwards). And it's a build-up that reverberates with a lot of the themes address in the series so far, with Aileron taking the narration spot and looking at the category of Primes and heroes from a vantage point, really.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
which may or may not be sideways


Then we have a reveal. A big one. A narrative, time-shattering one, on the very last page. And issue #18 (aptly named Interlude) deals with this instead, charging the story being told in a way that is yes, entirely exposition, but exposition that is surprisingly well woven and doesn't feel like a pause too long or any kind of slog.

So where is the variation in the success I mention? General agreement on staff was that not everything landed immediately but, at the same time, risks were taken and the pay-off is yet fully to come with more of the arc to follow in the coming months. And the aspects played upon in these issues are not entirely out of nowhere, in Barber's repertoire and I'm very pleased with the editing assist of David Mariotte, keeping all things in check as Barber lets himself loose.

Art

In #17, Kei Zama and Josh Burcham are - I think - showing off their skills. We have a ridiculous range of emotive and dynamic in frame layouts, with interactions being silent as the overwhelming and overpowering presence of Onyx takes up most of the space. Things get out of hand, and space and colour are used to the best of their effects, with some truly incredible compositions and transformation sequences, too.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
You Are (Not) Alone


In #18, Sara Pitre Durocher offers the general framework of the current events (opening and closing), along with colours by master of technicolour continuity Burcham - both of whom, together, maintain the stage in the same light and tone as the final act of the previous issue, and chillingly set up the Interlude story.

Livio Ramondelli has the main duties for the latter, and his style, once more, proves perfectly suited to the past, mythology infused Weird!Barber script. The Aligned continuity that once was part of another narrative universe definitely takes shape and form in his lines and colours, and the Primes of old can easily be identified in their rise and expansion - awingly so.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
#Imperialism


There is little more that can be said about Tom B. Long's work on lettering for these books, but as Barber (and Mariotte) stick to their captioning and name tagging techniques, his fonts and placing don't skip a beat, and allow for the story - with a lot of exposition, as I said - to flow as organically as a twisted story as this one can.

The covers are multiple, and glorious, with the main ones taken care of by Zama and Burcham, including some clear lineart of Solus Prime from the former, and Casey Coller / Joana Lafuente for issue #17's B cover (in the style of its predecessors, as seen in our database, plus the #18 Megatronus variant from Livio Ramondelli (others also in database!). But the one featured in the thumbnail is Thomas Teyowisonte Deer's gorgeous take on the Autobot leader, the Arisen, and seemingly the pivot of the entire storyline.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

As I said above, Barber has taken the weird, paradox route, and by doing so taking some really big risks that may not please a section of the readership (and unfortunately proving some clichés about comics narratives in general in the doing, too) - but, some of those risks are still not fully revealed, and where they may not work in these issues for now, two more chapters of The Falling are still due before the final arc. In the words of Onyx, this is indeed just the prelude to the finale, and we are bound to return to its topics and characters very very soon.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
I still have doubts. On everything


The multiple art teams, with Burcham working as continuity lynchpin, do some wonders with what could've been an extremely, frustratingly confusing story, and the aftermath of Onyx's arrival is dealt with in perhaps the most personal and brutal way that this series has seen this far - also partly due to Aileron's perspective, and Soundwave's involvement. I do not believe we are seeing the entire truth, yet, but next month will confirm suspicions - and let me tell you, I am buzzing.

Courtesy of the TFNation HQ, we have another guest update for their third fan convention taking place this summer in Birmingham, UK, on 17-19 August - and it's none other than IDW Publishing Transformers comics artist Alex Milne! Read more below, and book your tickets now.

Transmission_Initiated
Transmission ID: 000012
TFNation_2018
Operation: The Art Bringer

Another returning guest to the 2018 edition of TFNation is the fan-beloved artist from the big cold white North, Alex Milne!

Milne has been working as a creator for Transformers since the days of Devil’s Due Press’ GI Joe vs the Transformers, various collaborations with Fun Publications and eventually moving to regular, serialised work with Dreamwave and IDW Publishing. As the regular co-creator on Transformer: More Than Meets the Eye, Milne has rendered hearts and tears in painstaking detail, bringing some of the more expressive robot faceplates to the pages of comics.

Alongside and after MTMTE, Milne has provided covers for a range of IDW Publishing comics, Transformers and elsewhere, as well as providing interior art for an issue of Transformers: Lost Light. His most recent collaboration saw him partner once more with writer John Barber (and Christos Gage) on the prequel mini-series Rom vs The Transformers: Shining Armor - but the perhaps bigger news is his presence as artist for the upcoming Unicron: Darkest Hour #0 Free Comic Book Day issue due in May 2018.

iTunes has updated with a new listing in the form of a 3 page preview for IDW's Optimus Prime #17! Issue 17, set to come out next week on April 18, along with Optimus Prime #18 oddly enough thanks to a bad scheduling error as confirmed by John Barber himself, gives a look at Aileron as she recounts her story of going from a lowly citizen of Caminus to a follower of Optimus Prime, as well as what she thinks of her life going from boring to exciting while getting her best friend killed.

You can check out issue 17's 3 page preview below, BUT BE WARNED, you should not read issue 18's inevitable preview before you have actually read issue 17. So really, don't even read the preview for issue 18. Just buy it and 17 next Wednesday.

Let us know what you think of both the issue 17 preview and the scheduling conflict that has 2 issues of the same series coming out on the same day below!

One of the shortest but hard hitting series of Transformers comics from IDW Publishing sees this week the release of its third and final collected trade paperback volume, and we have a full preview courtesy of the publisher directly - check out the opening pages of Till All Are One volume 3, containing the last arc of the series (issue 9-12) and the Annual 2017.

Have you been waiting to read the conclusion to Windblade and Starscream's story? Will you be picking this up again after reading the single issues? Take a look below, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

Transformers: Till All Are One, Vol. 3
Mairghread Scott (w) • Sara Pitre-Durocher (a & c)
The fate of Cybertron lies in the hands of Starscream and Windblade as each tries to win allies and support in order to gain control over the Council of Worlds. After the costly victory against the Titans, Iacon is in shambles and Starscream finds himself on shakier ground than ever. The key to his political (and likely literal) survival rests in the outcome of a very unlikely event: the trial of the Council's first official war criminal—Chromia of Caminus! Collects issues #9–12 and the 2017 Annual.
TPB • FC • $17.99 • 144 pages • ISBN: 978-1-68405-086-4
