IDW's Lost Light series has covers coming out of nowhere! With all the covers now revealed for issue 18, we get a special look at a new cover for issue 20, done by none other than the Wrecker's author and artist Nick Roche along with his colorist in crime Josh Burcham! This new cover features crewmembers from the Lost Light who ended up being regretful mutineers, among them Inferno, Blaster, Hound, Bluestreak, Brawn, and Huffer. These guys all appear to be ready to fight or flee in terror from some unseen enemy, common among the issue covers these days for Lost Light.

This cover was officially tweeted out by Nick Roche himself, where he describes it as issue 20's "B" cover. The same cover can be found on a Penguin Random House listing for Lost Light volume 4 as well, which will collect issues 19-25, and thus end the series. It is unsure if this cover will be used for the actual trade paperback, or if this is just a place holder.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Fully back on board this train as it reaches its final destination.

Shock me, Jimbo!

PS I don't think Hound's legs make much sense in that cover art.

It's funny how green legs turn purple and orange in a certain light.

All the Autobots here are facing left, so another bunch of characters on another cover could be facing right. Who will they be? My money's on the weather presenters of Oklahoma TV! :lol:

Anyone in the middle or is it going to be a Mexican standoff?

Okay so after taking a few weeks away from regular posting and purging myself of my negative vibes and outlook, it's time for me to catch up on LL. I stopped reading after Defensor got taken out. Has the story picked up the pace since then? Have some questions been answered?

The pace has picked up, yeah. Disparare pieces are starting to be drawn together in real ways.

I think it's on the cusp of some real answers starting in 18, which should have been out soon if not already but has been IDW'd out to mid-June :(

I think that there will be someone or even something in the middle because part of Ultra Magnus' left arm goes off the page on the 2nd cover and doesn't appear on the 1st cover. Therefore: 3rd cover soon!

I think anticipating plot points/story moments based on covers is a great way to make yourself disappointed later. Remember how Getaway punched Thunderclash off the ship Ozymandias-style?

Me neither :lol:

The grand Architect will show up , snap his fingers, and then Krok, Crankcase, Fulcrum, Misfire, Swerve, Rewind, Rung, Nautica, Nightbeat, Velocity, Whirl, and Roller will all die by turning to rust


So like in IW all the awesome characters

Sorry for the double post, but finished book 5 of MTMTE the other day. Started book 6 but I think I missed something, is this where that dark cybertron story takes place? Someone mentioned it a while back.

But anyways book 5 was a fun read. Some random thoughts.

Book starts with Tailgate finding out he has cybercrosis, pretty fascinating and a bit unexpected to see the topic of dying from old age feature in a transformers comic of all places. Kind of neat that whirl comes up with the solution at the end.

The Luna One and Tyrest plot was kind of bizarre but filled with lots of great moments, good humor, and some twists I certainly didn’t see coming. The ambus is Ultra Magnus, say what? Rung figures it out though. Also Rung has energon sticks. lol

And Tyrest and Pharma, I’m not sure who is more insane. I’m glad they both got what was coming to them.

Star Saber is nuts too.

Whirl and Cyclonus had some good scenes, both action and some sort of understanding to make peace I guess.

And the book finishes with a story called Little Victories a film by Rewind. And now I miss Rewind, I hope he’s back soon.

Yeah dark cybertron takes place in between 5 and 6, it's a good read and helps with the setup for what's going on in the optimus prime series and for what's to come in unicron.

And as ScottyP has said in recent podcast episodes: it's aged really well compared to when it first came out. Definitely give it a try!

Doesn't matter to me either way. I gave up on extra covers a while ago.

Ok, thanks folks. I’ll check out Dark cybertron before I continue with book 6.

Also thanks to online retailer Amazon.com and another IDW Publishing comics listing, we have a date for the release of the last collected trade paperback for the ongoing (and soon ending) comics series Transformers: Lost Light.

Collecting issues 19-25, volume 4 will feature the final arc of the series - which may or may not directly tie into the Unicron event as parallel series Optimus Prime will do - and is due for release in February 2019, which means trade readers will have until then to catch up on the end of the universe. Find out more below!

The adventures of Rodimus and the crew of the Lost Light come to a close in this action-packed thriller!

Years ago, the crew of the Lost Light fought a demonic Cybertronian mutant that fed on its victims' souls. Now, Rodimus and Co. are about to discover that the only thing worse than a sparkeater... is an army of sparkeaters! Plus, something is coming. It cannot be stalled. It cannot be avoided. It cannot be reasoned with. As the end of everything draws near, a simple instruction rings out across the universe: prepare, confront, repel. Collects issues #19-25.

Series: Transformers (Book 4)
Paperback: 160 pages
Publisher: IDW Publishing (February 12, 2019)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1684054109
ISBN-13: 978-1684054107
Product Dimensions: 6.6 x 10.2 inches

Courtesy of iTunes and their regular early looks at IDW Publishing comics, we have a three-page preview for the next issue of Transformers: Lost Light, due - if schedules hold - next week! Take a look at the images mirrored below, as we join Rodimus and the rest of the cast in the Afterspark. Or not.

LIGHTS OUT! The “Everlasting Voices” trilogy concludes with an explosion of hope, a grave betrayal... and more answers than you can handle! Events of the last six years build to a frenzy of revelations, casting everything that’s gone before in a new—and deadly—light. No exaggeration, no hyperbole: there has never been a more important issue of Lost Light.

Always appreciate a Fastball Special :-D .. Still not keen on the colour scheme of Rodimus though. I'm sure there are in-story reasons (and by "coincidence", a new toy) but it's just not him. He was always a character that visually popped, black and purple are far too generic within Transformers.

Drift painted him this way to express grief for a fallen friend (Skids) and a promise to kill someone (Getaway).

Nothing at all to do with the promotion an upcoming toyline. Nope, nothing to see here. (/sarcasm)

Actually the only rodimus I've seen in those colours is a third party toy, rodimus unicronus is a different deco that pays far more homage to shattered glass rodimus
