Rodimus is really funny here to me. He's being really bad at what he's trying to do.

This is why I can't help but love him. He's basically me! :lol:

I'm thinking between Nightbeat and Brainstorm debating science and the cute moments they are hinting at between Lug and Anode this issue will be better than #6 was. (Not that it would be difficult imho, I just really disliked #6)

Agreed. I'm going to take a guess and say that the next thing Ratchet is going to say will be something along the lines of "now that Megatron is gone everything is back to normal." This past storyline has basically just felt like an excuse to reset most everything that's taken place since Dawn of the Autobotsn which wouldn't sting so much if it weren't so transparent.

I really can't bring myself to care about Anode and Lug, especially since the latter hasn't actually been present for the 6 issues she was introduced in.

The more I think about it, the more I can't stand Hot Rod and the more the mutiny makes sense. He's becoming more of a petulant, unrepentant heel, and one of the few characters capable of taking him down a peg is gone. I recall the narrowly won captaincy vote after the Overlord affair back before Dark Cybertron and how Hot Rod promised to win his crew back. I can't think of anything he's actually done to accomplish that, though.

Small typo in the news post, "functionalist" should be "functionist".

I wasn't expecting Lug to "grow up" that quickly, or to (apparently) retain all her memories.

I laughed out loud at the Swerve petition conversation.

This is pretty much my thought pattern too. His season 2 character was kinda crap, and I feel like he degraded, especially since the end of season 1 supposedly had him learning a lesson and actually deciding to try to implement it. It's kind of sad really, considering he set out to be a fairly good character

Issue #7 of IDW Publishing's Transformers: Lost Light sees the return of John Wycough on inks, for Lawrence's lineart - and a breather from the Functionist universe as far as we can tell! Check out the full preview for the issue, courtesy of Multiversity Comics, and head back after Wednesday for a Seibertron.com review.

“Transformers: Lost Light” #7

AFTERMATH! The war with the Functionalists is over—and Rodimus is left wondering whether he won or lost. It’s the beginning of a new chapter for the displaced crew of the Lost Light, as decisions are made that will change their lives forever.

No. No. No.

Jack Lawrence's art is garbage. What are they standing on there, the oatmeal planet? Why are Cyclonus' thighs each as big as his torso? Why does EVERYBODY look stubby and ill-proportioned? Why are all his bots walking with the same posture? Why is Chromedome suddenly anorexic?

And I'm disgusted by the direction JRo is taking Cyclonus/Tailgate, both in their individual characterizations and their story.

And are you FUCKING KIDDING ME with Anode and Lug? All that fucking wasted paper on a new character that was nothing more than yet another witty quippy irrevent smartass, doing an entire "emotional" story that wasn't earned in the slighest, all for "NOW YOU'RE FULLY GROWN AGAIN! IT TOOK A PANEL! HERE'S ALL THE TRUTH!"

So. Fucking. Done.

So, what, he just chucked easily the best character study in Transformers history? Megatron was one of my favorite parts of this story. I haven't read the Dissolution arc yet, but Megatron had better not be gone or gone bad again. I might be done, too.

The line where Ratchet says that everyone is glad that Megatron is gone really PO'D me. No, not everyone is glad to be rid of Megatron, JR, especially your readers who were interested in the character. I know Roberts has always been pretty transparent about his dislike for Megatron; I've accepted that and am willing to let him write the story he wants, but he doesn't have to rub it in.

Based on one of the alt-covers, I hope that Minimus will show some sort of attachment to him. As it is, that line implies that the few positive interactions between Megatron and the crew were disingenuous, and that the people he credited as his conscience secretly couldn't stand him.

Why didn't the Necrobot save Ultra Magnus...the original one. If this story somehow reveals Ultra Magnus lives, and minimus just stay minimus, I'd be interested in that. We could somehow get back to the white Prime redeco.

The Necrobot specifically only went back to save people who mysteriously went missing, not change history by preventing someone from dying. In addition, if we assume he didn't know the truth about the Magnus Armour, that would mean he was under the impression that Magnus never died.

I actually like Jack Larwence's art. I think he does a good job of drawing bots who have visors, they look like they are sporting some sweet shades. I guess he does sometimes make characters have too large of heads and hands at times but that's a minor pet-peeve.

I personally dislike it when Nick Roche forgets Drift's nose but I won't be nasty about it. Also - why give Drift no nose and Rodimus a different nose in each picture? I can either get hung up on flaws/things I dislike (Considering different artists have different ideas about what a character looks like) or I can enjoy the comics for what they are.

Then again things could be MUCH worse. Back when I used to read Sonic comics there was an artist I could not stand - not going to name names but here is how he drew Sonic and Tails :

I shudder to think about that artist drawing Transformers :SICK:

Either way, I really like that cover of Magnus being all badass. I know my GF is going to want the photo reel one because it's got her favorite characters. So I'll not grump to her about robot noses so long as she is happy.

I think Hot Rod's nose is different in each photo because his face being at a slightly different angle each time.

I still love this series. I think the art is fine. I didn't realise James Roberts disliked Megatron.

I love the petition scene and Swerve having told Tailgate he invented that expression.

I still don't like Tailgate and despite not liking his relationship with Cyclonus all along I feel bad for Cykie here.

Here's hoping Getaway kills Tailgate. Actually anybody killing the little pest is fine.

I'm not sure "dislike" is the right word (unless I missed a quote where he outright said that), it's more of the fact that Megatron is such a huge presence in the overall Transformers mythos and in the history of IDW's universe that he inherently takes focus when present. Since Megatron came into the book, most of the stories have been about Megatron. Even the anticipated direction of 7-11 is going to be very much due to Megatron. Having him out of the picture for awhile allows the author to get back to story threads for characters like Drift, Chromdome, Whirl, Nautica, and hopefully even some of the great recurring minor roles like those occupied by the Scavengers, Blaster, and Bluestreak.

if it IS true then its quite simply amazing roberts has managed to do such a good job elevation megs to near magneto levels of depth.

personally i think your interpretation is right.

megs, like prime, towers over other characters so they overshadow everyone else. pretty much the same way the big three in the avengers/JLA do to their supporting cast.

when you consider MTMTE was made up of pretty much nobodies getting character for the first time you can see how that'd hurt the book. i personally think its why he's shy'd away from grimlock for so long too.

im waiting for the trade so im not caught up on everything but i can understand why roberts wants to step away from the character and TBH after all the work he's done retconning the guy to fecking legend status i think he deserves it.

(mind you if im reading things right and he IS stuck in the functionalist universe well THATS a book i want to read ! i just dont know who id trust to write it as roberts is the only one who's take on a revolution i'd be interested in seeing and i dont think the lad can hack TWO books. :) )

i mean jesus to see the con try and do it all again but right ? its a very very tempting concept.

particularly with the whole "what happened to our usual cast angle now their lives went differently"
