We had clearly not brought you enough comics news on Wednesday, so we have some more today in the form of a variant cover from Alex Milne and Josh Perez for the IDW Publishing Transformers: Lost Light issue #16, via IDW Publishing!

The book is due out next month, and already features the main cover with a lot of Are All Dead vibes, but the variant pushes the concept a little differently, showing Rodimus seeing the ghosts? spirits? avatars? traces? of the characters we know have definitely passed away so far: Trailcutter, Ravage, Ambulon, and Pipes. Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

ALL GOOD THINGS…! Rodimus and the Crusadercons have reached their final destination. The trouble is, it’s not Cyberutopia. In fact, it’s not ANYWHERE. But they’d better get used to it, because they’re going to be there until the end of Time…

I think you meant Trailcutter and not Skids in the article.

That's not the point Skids is not on the cover while Trialcutter is.

Seriously...

Edit:The hell was that emote doing there I never put it there while typing.

Is there any indication that after the Unicron event, Optimus Prime and Lost Light will be coming to an end? or the Transformers books will again be rebranded by IDW? --It kind of seems like it, but its just speculation by me at this point.

It is just speculation, indeed. There are a lot of things pointing to something happening, and all creators on Twitter are being vague and hinting and just infuriating from a news perspective (I mean that in the best way!), but yes, just speculation.

Good way to drum up some publicity in the fandom, I suppose? Though the ones talking about it are mostly readers already (which is kinda the whole reason to actually have a reboot). :-?

I figured it will either be a soft reboot like it it was with the beginning of MTMTE or a completely new story with new or seldom-used characters. Either way, I'm guessing the new title will be War For Cybertron, in support of the upcoming toy line starting in 2019.

Based on past tie in efforts I'm wondering if they'll take the time to do a war for Cybertron flashback arc, set before the moment thunderwing screwed everything up. The best thing would be if IDW put this out as a miniseries so other stories didn't have to take a break.

Also I'm curious if the new line (and perhaps the comics) will have any connections to the game. Or if the name is just a lack of imagination.

My feeling is that it's unconnected but they must of known that the name would only invoke the game...guess we'll find out soon enough.

Proof of Lost Light ending at #20?

Eh, at this point, I'm willing to wait for actual news from IDW, to be honest. Also given the fact that LL volume 3 ends with #18 (the one announced in latest solicits for May). '[T]he biggest story in the history of the Lost Light' (see blurb for #18) is probably volume 4. I doubt it'd be two issues only. :-?

(Bumping it back up to 22 pages is interesting though..)

The almost final preview for this coming week's comics (but the last one for Transformers titles) from IDW Publishing features the second part of the Scavengers arc in Transformers: Lost Light #15! The full preview comes to us via fellow Seibertronian Sunstar, who found it on the comics and media website Comic Book Resources - we have mirrored the images below for your viewing convenience.

Make sure to take a read, then join the discussion in the Energon Pub forums! Will you be picking this issue up on Wednesday?

[quote]SECRETS AND LIES! As the Scavengers’ journey reaches its ignoble end, the architect of their downfall puts the fate of half the Cybertronian race in their hands. Only one question remains: Are the worst Decepticons prepared to become the ONLY Decepticons?[/quote]

Not bad. I don't want to get my hopes up, because it's only a 3-page preview, but might we finally be getting a decent story in LL?

15 was glorious. I have to admit, the twist involving [spoiler]an infant with a Decepticon logo face tattoo[/spoiler] had me rolling my eyes for a few minutes, but it was literally just that. Once I kept going and [spoiler]Scorponok explained what was going on[/spoiler], I found that to make sense and be consistent with this version of the character especially given past unusual events from the Furman era. Felt a bit, thematically, like elements found in Masterforce. Should be fun to see where it goes!

And that last page, my word, that is a masterpiece. The lines, the lighting, the words - that's how you do a cliffhanger!

Unofficial score (someone else is writing the formal review): 113/Fulcrum; would have Khary Payton voice this Grimlock
