Rodimus gets deposed and another, shittier captain takes charge of the Lost Light. Poor ship can't seem to get a proper captain!
I'm missing all my favorites, but their disappearance has been explained. This is really just getting good, and it's only going on for one more issue, apparently. But I'm really excited: it's knotty, it gets more twisted the more I read, and I"m seeing some characters come back that I'd forgotten about to be quite honest. I'd gotten so caught up in everything else...
Anyway, looking forward to issue twelve when that comes out.
So I'm finally able to read. It's taking a while because I also started knitting. I knit my teacher some Lord of the Ring themed gloves, and I'm knitting myself some Borg themed gloves. They're going to look awesome when they're done, but they're making it so I'm reading much slower. Worth it, but... yeah.
I'm really loving this series. This particular storyline - and this is the start of this storyline - is one of the more twisted one: Getaway not only takes over The Lost Light, he proves to be a dictator, perhaps rivaled only by Megatron in his heyday.
What you are allowed to do, where, and when? It's all tightly controlled. Patients are kept being locked doors - comatose patients. Twenty four crew mates are unaccounted for, with no good reason for them being missing. Those who disagree with Getaway? Well, they tend to end up comatose.
There are moments of humor, but this is a bleak enough storyline - bleak in the way that it seems to mirror some real life in an eerie way - that I never really felt like the tension was broken by the humor. Still, it works. The balance is a little off, but I really, really want to know what happens next - and it just so happens that I have issue eleven up next...
Illa, the girl-who-is-a-moon, and daughter of Ego the Living Planet wants one thing: not to be alone. She would, in fact, like to speak to her father, a father who doesn't seem to know what to say or do with her, other than watch her and watch over her.
But she's both a moon and child. She needs contact with somebody and in particular with her parents. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur try to figure out what's going on with Ego and to help them connect.
