Journeys of the Lost Light


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Has anyone here been reading IDW's Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye By James Roberts series?

I have been singing the praises the book since release and have even roped some non-Transformers Fans into giving it a try.

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye (MTMTE) is one of 2 titles IDW's own Transformers Continuity. Where as its sister title Transformers: Robots in Disguise is a more grim and political affair of Post war politics on a regenerating Cybertron MTMTE is taking the form of an space quest to locate a group of mythic Cybertroians (Transformers) to help lead their species to a better future.

The actual quest more of a background thread, there to pull the Crew of the Lost Light from place to play with the narrative focuses less on the Command Crew of the Ship and more on the normally Background crowd filler characters Like Skids, Trailbreaker, Swerve and Whirl.

If you unfamiliar with the above names, well that's kinda the point.

Roberts has taked crew of largely forgotten and ignored TF Characters and Breath life into them in some cases the only life even put into the beyond a bio on the toys packaging.

The style and pace of each issues could be likened to a Modern Doctor Who episode with sprinkling of overreaching thread dusted throughout.

MTMTE Differs form RID in not only setting but tone.

MTMTE is a very funny comic with in jokes for the long running fan and self contained character humour featuring more often.

I would be very interested to hear other people experience with this title and more so if you do not normally read Transformers titles.
