From the usual source of iTunes, the first three pages of Transformers: Lost Light #16 are now available. This quick preview is light on the dialogue, but heavy on the mystery and intrigue. The start of a three part story titled "The Everlasting Voices", the first entry is titled "Metastasis". With the end of #15 teasing with the word "threnody", the signs are there that surely everything will go just fine with a perfectly happy ending for everyone's favorite characters.

This latest chapter of Lost Light is set for release on March 14, 2018, making it the fourth entry of the series in just seven weeks at that point. Who knew Transformers comics had gone bi-weekly? The preview pages are mirrored below, featuring the writing of James Roberts, line art by Jack Lawrence, and colors by (presumably) Joana Lafuente.

Interesting, now how will this tie into things. My guess is that none of them are actually there physically. Also anyone else get the feeling that Cyclonus is seeing something different?

Lost Light news has been coming hard and fast as of recent! With EJ Su confirmed to do artwork, The series to run to issue 25, and Issue 16's preview, making it the potential 4th Lost Light to be released in 2 months and finally back on schedule, all revealed, we thought we couldn't get any more news.

Well, we were wrong.

Thanks once more to James Roberts Twitter page, we have 2 new pieces of news to share with you tonight. The first news is that, following the spectacular return of EJ Su to interior work, we have word that issue 20 will be handled by yet another long time Transformers artist new to the series: Casey Coller!. Coller will be the guest artist for issue 20 of the series, and we are looking forward to finally seeing him on Lost Light interiors.

The 2nd piece of news is a 1-page penciled preview of EJ Su's artwork for issue 19! Check it out below, and let us know what you think of this newest piece of Lost Light news!

Seems mildly interesting. Still soured after the last two issues. Might read my GF's copy to see if it redeems itself.

I also think Cyclonus is seeing something else. So Rodimus is having a Matrix vision. Maybe he'll get it back and become Rodimus Prime just in time for Unicron to show up.

They’re in the same place seeing the same thing.

Here’s no matrix to get back. It’s broken and in Optimus possession. This is a 3 part story.

They’re not going to be part of the Unicron story. That’s going to be only johns thing. James last story will be him tying up his own story of all his characters converging on cyberutopia.

I must have missed this information in the news. Can you post a link, please?

Mostly for the art, and a tiny bit hoping at some point it would get better, sadly, I was wrong on the second part. At least the art has gotten better since they let that clown EJ Su draw it

Genuine question: when you say you'd hoped it get better, what kind of story were you expecting/wanting?

From the look on his face, maybe Cyclonus sees this:

Hah, :lol:

Nah if that was the case, the panel would show him rolling over the floor laughing, expecting the original cyclonus to break out into a village people song looking like that.

Seriously it looks like hes wearing briefs

I think that it will end up being tailgate as someone else suggested, or, in a curve ball move, he's sees an image of cybertron as it was before the first ark launched.

I was thinking more along the lines of the more uniform aesthetic, the missing Faction Symbol etc. I imagine those things will present themselves soon enough in the "reboot".

Will have to see but I hope not, though the question does become how will they deal with galvatron, his own man? (This approach works best as there's little overlap between megs and galvy) or will they go full revival of megs -> galvy...hang on a moment...you were complaining in another thread about the franchise sticking with too much g1 influence and yet you want cyclonus and other aspects to be more like the sunbow cartoon. You want g1 to be used less then you need to get used to the idea that cyclonus doesn't need to be that boring yes man again. His character may have gone through some retcons but what he's now is infinitely better. I have a feeling that furman would gladly sign off on this new aspect.

Can't wait for the five page preview to come up, though it will be next week (hopefully) before we get answers...apart from those lucky few who get review copies early

No, Sunbow is Dead. G1 is equally gone and if not for the GeeWun "fans" we should have moved beyond it's shadow decades ago.

The nostalgia of G1 always holds back plot progression in virtually everything Transformers that came after. Plot progression in all comics is something I am a strong advocate of. Characters should change, die and not return etc etc

However, Cyclonus current design.. isn't great. His original design is iconic. My point was that yet again, Much like Ultra Magnus, IDW Cyclonus started off as something different and interesting and.. went to the wrong book. G1 has next to no sway over me at all. Beast Wars is king.

Personally I thought Megatron and Galvatron work as separate characters. Although Megatron should have been killed off at an earlier stage. Maybe at the conclusion to CHAOS? When you shed him and Prime, usually the series starts to progress forward.

Drift convinced him to convert to Spectralism and, in doing so, chose a new paint job which represented both mourning and an intent to kill. And also to increase sales of Black Rodimus toys or summat, I dunno.

Would be nice to see evil rodimus make it to the comics but I do wonder what people would think if shattered glass made it to IDW...
