Let's start the new year with some contemplation and good art, with two new incentive covers for upcoming issues of IDW Publishing Transformers comics - the second, companion piece to the Optimus Prime one is the Lost Light #2 retailer incentive cover, also by Joana Lafuente, showing Rodimus in the same pose, new colours, and possibly the Necroworld mirroring Earth. Check it out below via Previews World!

Transformers: Lost Light #2
(W) James Roberts (A) Jack Lawrence (CA) Joana Lafuente
Rodimus and Co. find themselves in a dangerous place. Even more dangerous than on a planet that exploded from the inside. That's already pretty dangerous. But where they are now? Oh boy.

is anyone else having a basted of a time finding this book ?

ive got two issues of Optimus Prime now but no lost light and seeing as in my locak comic store OP would be the FAR fewer seller im lost to figure out why.

even the online store i used to get it from doesnt have a listing for it.

Where in Ireland? The thing about this book is that it was heavily pre-ordered, so you may have to ask for a re-stock/re-order, or indeed get a digital copy as Ironhidensh suggests!

im in Dublin.

plenty of comic shops here and i havent seen it in any of em. i usually go to the forbinden planet where i can still pick up the revolution tie in if it wanted it but no sign of the new ongoing.

MTMTE wouldve been the biggest seller there of the 3 books so im at a loss as to how its not on the shelves as they'd deffo oversuscribe it.

TBH guess it means i just missed it so ill wait till the first arc is over and get the trade instead.

no way am i getting a digital copy. i like me comics "Real".

I agree with paper comics, actual hard copies. The digital ones, I don't like reading. I always enjoy more and catch more when I have the comic in my hands and not on my screen

Ask Big Bang, they're probably the best retailer around there and have personal ties to Nick and a lot of other Irish artists/creators. :D

Courtesy of the listing page on itunes we have been provided with a preview of IDW's Transformers Lost Light issue #2. Below is the description, followed by the preview - head back in a couple of weeks for more.

Rodimus and Co. find themselves in a dangerous place. Even more dangerous than on a planet that exploded from the inside. That’s already pretty dangerous. But where they are now? Oh boy.

The story seems good, but Lawrence's art is reminding me (unfavorably) of Corin Howell. Goofy, cartoony facial expressions, and though characters are distinctive, none seem imposing or threatening. Twelve of Twelve (?) reminds me of Professor Princess from Animated. Just not a good style for this book, I'm afraid.

Also, Lug is also a fembot? Cool.

If non-living machines serve no purpose how can any Cybertronian have a redundant alt-mode? They exterminated the laser pointers, I assumed, because they had a mechanical replacement. Now we find out they don't have laser pointers at all anymore. So they don't have a way to call attention to large scale presentations?

Having finally read the first issue, I'm more confused than ever about the colonies and Cybertronian history. The colonies were lost, right? So what are a couple of Camiens doing hanging around decepticons? How did they get off world while their resources were running out? How were they able to get back to Cybertron at all when they were separated by a space-bridge?

Also, I hope Anode becomes more likeable. As of now she's kind of a very archetypal "Roberts" character.

Why is Anode such an unlikable self insert oc?


Orginal characters were fine when there were only a handful of them as main characters such as Rung, Nautica and Drift and they were even likable but now it's like half the crew are unorginal original characters now.


Seriously Anode is such a douche and is female which means she can't be from Cybertron yet the flashback makes it look like her and Lug are from Cybertron during the war like wtf Roberts where did they come from...

I agree completely. Lawerance isn't terrible, but I still think Milne should have stayed as the main artist. I love his art, and it is far better suited to Lost Light.

Other than that, though, I really do like Lost Light. So far it looks as though it could be just as good as MTMTE. I am curious as to whether the "Geobomb" was actually what it seemed, or if it (or Rung) is part of the reason why the crew was transported to another universe.
Also, Lug tells Anode that she "made the pretty one with the sword collapse in front of his Conjunx Endura." Does this mean that Ratchet and Drift are now a couple? Did I miss something, or is this new?

This is a reference to last issue, where Anode made Drift faint in front of Rodimus by somehow activating that vision.

They're not actually a couple not yet anyway, it's just a joke.

Let's all take a moment and realize just how much ass Megatron is going to kick in this functionist universe. He may be playing nice at the moment, but c'mon, its freaking Megatron in a freaking functionist universe. Ass will be smashed, and it shall be awesome.

I'm wondering where they'll get a ship from once they somehow escape from the functionist universe. I'm hoping that's how they'll re-introduce First Aid (plus Mirage and the protectobots). I miss him so much

I really, really hope you're right. I really enjoyed Megatron unleashed at the end of DotL, until his character arc faltered. I've been thinking a lot about MTMTE, LL, Roberts' writing in general, and I really hope this story doesn't go in a certain direction. From the beginning, I got the sense that Robert's doesn't really like having Megatron around. He's never really been interested in developing him from my perspective. Mostly, he acts like Ultra Magnus, only with fewer jokes at his expense.

Off the bat, I was kind of annoyed with LL because it immediately seems to be moving off on a tangent with the functionist universe. We just got through a major arc. There was a mutiny, people died, etc, and I think that these things should be much more immediate concerns from a story perspective instead of moving on to the next thing. So, why are we in the functionist universe, practically speaking I mean?

When the main cast first landed on the Necrobot's planet, we learned that Megatron wasn't too keen on dying in the near future. His story arc has basically been wrapped up. He seems to have suppressed his violent urges, his best friend and greatest influence is back in his life, he's happier now than he has been for a long time. So what does he still have left to do?

Suddenly, he's in a new universe along with his best buddy. A universe sorely in need of Megatron's revolutionary touch. Since Robert's doesn't seem to care for Megatron too much, I can totally see Roberts leaving Megatron behind, so that the rest of Team Rodimus can continue having adventures without him.

I super hope that doesn't happen.

Maybe Terminus will volunteer to stay behind since he has all of Megatron's passion for revolution, but less capacity to take it to the same extreme.

I'm so with you here. I'd bet something happens to Terminus and it's full on rage mode from there.

Also, with the comment about the date, I'm going to guess that the title of 34 (or was it 35?), "The Custom Made Now" might have more to it.

Finally, while I like 90% of the art in these pages, Rewind looks messy here. It's a face plate, not a face casserole dish.
