Came across an interview, not much said other then the following:

Lost Light #1 peeks
- Necroworld for a bit
- new threads – not like MTMTE #1, definitely part 1 of multi issue storyline
- similar in tone/scope as Dying of the Light, multiple characters, sometimes their own thing sometimes impacting on each other
- telling old readers ‘this is the same thing you liked’, telling new readers ‘here’s what TFs are’
- nine covers

Saw on twitter last night (not sure if this is serious) that Roberts said that there are 5 pages of "story so far" in the first issue.

I'm really looking forward to this issue. I have been in need of some Lost Light. Been too long

Just enough to take up a whole preview. That bloody evil genius.

Via Twitter user and fellow Transformers fan @inkybauds, and confirmation from IDW artist Sara Pitre Durocher, we have two more incentive variant covers for the upcoming Transformers: Lost Light #1 issue, which takes up the storylines and cast of More Than Meets the Eye. While Pitre Durocher's cover is the one with the Nautica, Rodimus and Megatron graffiti (apparently part of an inter-connecting post-Revolution series, with MASK and other titles in Reconstruction) we still have no credited author for the regal Megatron - still, check them both out below!

UPDATE: The second cover is by artist Sonny Liew.

Why is Rodimus changing his colours? What am I missing?

We don't know yet. Been a bit of a mystery since the first cover was revealed

Guess Animated Season 4 isn't as cancelled as we all thought.

I think we're going to see a more sombre Rodimus (for a while, at least). He prob feels responsible for what happened, and this may be his way of doing away with the old, irresponsible Rodiums (flames and flash) and being more serious, mature.

Or he could have just decided he's tired of red/yellow. It IS Rodimus, who knows? :-D

I am still so surprised to see Blaster there. He's always such a good guy, I dont know why he would ever vote for a mutiny.


Reminder: Megatron has been the evilest evil in the Cybertronian civil war for millions of year. It is not unreasonable to dislike, hate, fear, be disgusted by him. Especially if you were in the war, opposing him.

It doesn't mean Getaway is any nicer - I still dislike him to the end of my dislike bar - but it's not 'evil' to be confused by how easily a genocidal despot has been accepted as your new best buddy and captain.

That's how I see it anyway!

Nice way of seeig it. That brigs up a question I have, was Megatron fighting or 4 million years in the IDW continuity? I thought he and Prime were asleep for that time like in G1.

That Brings up another question, in the G1 cartoon, who was leading the decepticons and autobots while their two leaders were asleep for 4 million years? Man, I didnt know I would have so many questions all of a sudden.

Well it's the G1 cartoon, so it's not exactly like there aren't a billion plotholes...
But Shockwave was shown to be left in charge of Cybertron by Megatron in the first episode, and later on Elita-1 showed up leading the Female Autobots. One can then either assume Elita-1 was the absolute Autobot leader during that time, or there were multiple various Autobot resistance cells making Shockwave's life hell.


But yeah, that's the thing about the mutiny that hurts so much - it's completely justified. If the comic hadn't focused on Megatron and instead just showed him in the background being the captain suddenly - ie, like how pretty much everyone on the mutiny had seen him - you'd be right there with them thinking this is a good decision. He's Megatron. This was going to happen at some point or another.


Something I haven't seen brought up though is that curiously, all the bots shown drawn here were ones specifically shown in 50 has being part of the mutiny rather than showing any other randoms like Grotusque or Thunderclash or Perceptor. This says to me that the artist was just taking inspiration from 50 and we won't really be seeing these guys much in the issue.

Thunderclash just faded into the background, but he is on the Necrobot's planet with Team Rodimus.

I guess I was thinking about the beginning when they are on Millarium. sp

You're right. He's not.

I have a question. I was reading somewhere about the end of the Lost Light series (the wrap up, getting ready for the new series coming out in Dec), and someone said, "Now that we know what happened to Pharma's body, and what the geobomb did... DID we find that out? Was it explained in other series (Robots in Disguise, for instance?) because I pretty much just follow MTMTE and I want to have everything clued up before I start the Dec series. Because I would REALLY like to know those answers! :-D Especially what the hell happened to Pharma, the bastard.
