Oh dear... I obviously always should have expected a battle like this to be one, but this is just a mess. I can barely make out what's going on and the proportions and scale are all messed up.
And what is Snake-Eyes' deal? I'm really confused, nothing about him has even been attempted to be explained since he first showed up. He's just here now because icon!

I haven't had a problem with revolution at all. It's been a fun story. Just harmless fun.

That's cool!

Can I ask a question, then: did you find anything that impeded the enjoyment at all, or did you just take it in as it came, as you say, harmlessly? I just ask because in my case the art sometimes just distracted me too much from the story, and once I got to the latter, I was already annoyed.

I find the story to be fun. It's not amazing but most events are not. Comics are my thing. Not just transformers but entertainment in general. I read a lot of comics and I've read a lot of event books. I was an 80s kid, it's fun to see my toys that arnt transformers coming out the box again. This is IDWs first really big event that spans a shared universe. There's pros/cons, ups/downs whatever you call them but it's taking many different franchises and doing its best to pu them together and John is a very talented editor and writer. Probably one of the few editors to come out of Marvel that cared.

The art is fine, I've seen way worse and I've had zero trouble following the layouts and story telling. I have not followed every Revolution tie in, just Transformers and Mask and haven't had trouble following the story. I'll admit I should have read Micronaughts because it is needed before issue 3 but i didn't read it till almost a month later and it didn't ruin my enjoyment not having read it before.

Than Baron Karzu/Wraith hybrid speaking Ancient Cybertronian has a similar sort of silhouette to Megatronus Prime from the Covenant of Primus book... A crappy, art snafu, coincidence or am I imagining things?

If you were waiting for news on the last Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye issue under that title (the story will continue, with the same cast and plots, in Lost Light #1), we have the coverage for you! Via iTunes, we have a quick three-page preview at the IDW crossover Revolution tie-in book, written by James Roberts and Nick Roche, and featuring the Scavengers. Check it out below!

A DATE WTH DESTINY! After years of doing very little, Krok, Crankcase, Fulcrum, Spinister, and Misfire think they can wriggle out of anything—but not even they can avoid a heavily-promoted multi-franchise crossover. It’s the Scavengers Versus Your Childhood in a story that exposes all other art for the sham it is.

Argh, I can't find any way to make the first page big enough to actually read it :/

Loved the third page though. Beautiful. ... well. Aside from the dumb-technology-obsessed-teenager trope. JRO tends to subvert tropes and play with them rather than just using them.

That subversion may come on page 4. Or page 20. Of lost light #23. Maybe.

MP3 is the most interesting GI Joe in Revolution so far.

It's not too surprising in perspective. Roberts just takes things that were terrible and makes them fun and enjoyable, like Drift.

i find that tech obsessed teen to be a bit too close to the mark for me to not immediately HATE him.

In what is clearly a day of comics news, we have a full preview of the upcoming issue of IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye Revolution (the final tie-in issue, as far as robots are concerned). Not from IDW, but rather as an attachment to today's issue of Till All Are One, the five pages are mirrored below - via Tumblr user attackmercy - check them out, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Not to familiar about M.A.S.K but did they really wear suits like that?


I thought it was just a mad max version of G.I.Joe with transforming weaponized vehicles.
