Huffer's been aboard the Lost Light for some time. The image includes a lot of Lost Light crewmembers who aren't necessarily main players or even pull in more than background appearances, like Grapple.

Remember that Comics Alliance nomination for the Best 2016 Sci-Fi comic, for IDW Publishing's Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye? Well, we have news of the good kind for the entire creative team behind the book, from Roberts to Milne, to Lafuente, Long, Barber, and the rotating artists, colourers, inkers and more: They won! Check out more info below, and head here to see the rest of the list!

Winner: Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye
James Roberts, Alex Milne, Joana Lafuente and Others / IDW


It’s monumentally difficult for a story to shift between cosmic space opera, alternate universes, sitcom comedy, heartbreaking romance, 4,000,000 years of wartime anxiety, and the kind of action that makes you afraid to turn the page and risk your favorite characters, without also being a mess of tonal whiplash, but James Roberts, Alex Milne, Joana Lafuente and crew did it every single issue with every single character — and I remind you, many of these characters are talking pickup trucks.

Congrats! Still my favorite Transformer comic series. Will it get dethroned by Lost Light? Only time will tell! :-)

Much to your admin's two minds about it all,* Panini Comics - who publish the Italian translations of Marvel comics - will be releasing the Italian translation of IDW Publishing's Transformers, starting from The Death of Optimus Prime! The first volume, due in May, will include the not-really-a-one-shot and the first three issues of More Than Meets the Eye from way back when. Check out the new blurb, in translation and including the original Italian spelling of the brand 'Trasformers', below!

With a new film due in cinemas soon, the new Trasformers series debuts in Italy! With The Death of Optimus Prime! we find a new beginning for Autobots and Decepticons, in a fierce war for the past several millennia. All robots are called back to home planet Cybertron from Earth... and here the problems begin! Is it actually easy to leave war behind you?

The catch being that you have to collect each panel in random packs of stickers.

Panini? Back in the 80's we had some collectable sticker albums of various shows (Voltron, Thundercats etc...) that were distributed by a company with this name...I wonder if its the same or just a coincidence?

If i remember correctly Panini also do the UK reprints for Marvel, so maybe they also reprint them over in the UK.

I was gonna ask Va'al if he did any translation on these. Too bad.

Now speaking of panini, I want a snack.
