Thanks to the source directly, artist Alex Milne over on Twitter, we have both the lineart and the main coloured cover (courtesy of regular visual collaborator Josh Perez) for the last issue of IDW Publishing's Transformers: Lost Light.

That's right, issue #25 is just round the corner - barring any bizarre scheduling issues, which would surprise absolutely no one - and a lot of readers are getting ready to deal with the aftermath of 'no comics' for a little while. In the meantime, take a look below, and let us know what you think of this homage to Milne's first cover for the series TPB, back in More Than Meets the Eye!

So IDW was kind enough to allow me to share this cover with all of you :) This is my final cover for Lost Light. My approach was to bookend this image with the first MTMTE TPB cover I did. Colors by the Amazing @dyemooch . #transformers #mtmte #lostlight #idw

Ah, all of those characters who never did anything but stand in the background.

What purpose did characters like Hound served to the plot?

That is an amazing cover!!!

It's also kinda sad how many characters on that cover did not live through the series

Rollout, in G1 an Action Master. Milne has drawn him several times for commissions surprisingly, and he has shown up several times, including in alt mode in MTMTE 33 (I think) for the very first time

Yeah I did the same thing on tfw2005 about those guys and no scavengers. Milne actually chimed in and said he added them to fill space and he didn’t add them because they’d be so small in the picture was kind of offended and now I feel bad

Although personally I liked the concept of Autobot Megatron and thought it was well done in the comics, I look forward to seeing what the next comic iteration of him will be like.

Just finished LL24 and I gotta say it was a hell of a good issue. Here is to hoping 25 lives up to the hype.

Can I start reading the Unicron comics now?

They're almost entirely unconnected so far, so ideally you'd catch up on Optimus Prime before heading into Unicron! Check the chronology that ScottyP is putting together: the-transformers-idwverse-a-chronology-t105238s100.php#p1982662

(obviously Lost Light has so far nothing to do with it, so keep that in mind)

does anyone

someone
anyone
Tailgate or Swerve, maybe
:PRAY:
puts a blaster behind Megatron's auditory receptor and blows his brains out?

i mean
he still deserves to be punished
for the billions of deaths
and countless suffering

Nope. The redemptive arc of Megatron has been entirely enjoyable.

That cover. Absolutely awesome!

Someone had to do the chores while popular characters did interesting things! It's all part of the family dynamic.

Via the official page of the Previews World website, we have one of the many variants due with the last issue of IDW Publishing's Transformers: Lost Light ongoing series - allegedly out at the end of October - by main artist on the series Jack Lawrence, and colours by someone clearly not important enough to include in the solicitations (regular Joana Lafuente is the guess).

Check out below the cast ensemble for one final curtain call, in 'How to Say Goodbye and Mean It, pt II', and join us in the discussion until the book's release!

MORE THAN MET THE EYE. The quest is over, the dust has settled, and everything has changed-forever. But before the fond farewells, before the parting of ways, before the unkept promises to stay in touch, there's time-surely, there's time-for one last drink...

Extra-long final issue! Tying together and putting a bow on stories from the last 13 years!
The final fate of the whole Lost Light crew revealed!
From the Death of Optimus Prime to now: 85 issues of the Lost Light cast!

i truly
TRULY
enjoy born-again Megatron.

i do.

but nothing
NO-THING
can
or ever will
be able to remove,
cover
or
lighten
the tarnish
and Inermost Energon
& BLOOD
that this MONSTER
has splashed,
knelt in
and ground his heals upon
in his 4 million year
"misunderstanding"

he is simply
UNREDEEMABLE.
period.

i wish it were not so.

but the quest being concluded
its time to face the music
GUILTY AS CHARGED.

sorry.

then face the darkness

Some crimes are beyond flimsy philosophy.

How would his executioners be any different then him? There's supposed to be a difference between Autobot and cons (though IDW have shown that to be murkier) thus Autobot justice would have execution off the table. If you read the other IDW titles then it suggests that Prime may have charges of his own to answer for, look at Sins of the Wreckers for example where its revealed that Prowl bombed nonaligned areas to boost Autobot recruitment.

that should be dealt with as well b4 IDW concludes.

i bet Prowl sacrifices himself against Unicron
or somesuch
