I don't know what just happened...
Optimus Prime #17 - Kei Zama,John Barber

But I absolutely love it, and I'm eager to find out what's going to happen next.   It's all scheming, betrayal, and something super weird going on between Devastator, Metrotitan and Starscream. 

 

And of course the surprise guest at the end.   Like that's the WTF just happened moment, and I am so, so eager to find out.  I want to scream out what happened, but I have hopes that Jessica will eventually finish this up... so I won't spoil this, or letting her know what we find out about Primus.

I really, really need good comics right now
Optimus Prime #16 - Kei Zama,John Barber

Things feel like they're falling apart around me, and while my immediate go to comfort read would be new Lost Lights, I want to catch up on my comics - I have so many piled up! - and Lost Light?   Well, Lost Light is over.  

 

This is an excellent second go to, though, especially as this issue was a breathtaking character piece on Soundwave.   (It also furthered the plot, including many other characters, but it was mostly a piece on Soundwave, who is one of my favorite characters in this series.)

 

A beautiful, breathtaking issue.   Love, love, love this series.   It's become just a highlight for me.   Barber gets better and better with time, and I love seeing his evolution as a writer come to this.   I'm hoping, trusting, that the rest of this series is just as good.

The end :(
Transformers: Lost Light #25 - Jack Lawrence,James Lamar Roberts

And yet, what an ending.   Roberts leaves open the Whirl/Cyclonus/Tailgate threesome, forges ahead with new surprising bonds that make sense and leaves this tale open for so many more stories - stories that will never get told and that he never planned to tell. 

 

But he certainly leaves it up to my mind to continue telling them.   Fabulous!

 

And yet, I put off finishing this, I am desperately sad.   No more Roberts MTMtE.  No more Roberts Lost Light.   No more of his Whirl, or Cyclonus, or Swerve.   Or any of the others.   And this, my friends, is a dark, dark day for me. 

 

Does it help that Barber's going to continue on the IDW Transformers universe?  A little, as he'll be involved in rebooting next year.   But I'm being cautiously skeptical until I see what Hasbro included in 'must do' in their universe, and with what Barber comes up with.   It certainly won't be the same without Roberts there. 

 

Sighs.   Now I'm just sad again :(

Pentultimate issue
Transformers: Lost Light #24 - Brendan Cahill,James Lamar Roberts

As this nears it end, I felt more and more torn: same fabulous storytelling, same fabulous art, but each issue read meant I had only limited issues left unread.   One more, guys!   One more!   That broke my heart. 

 

And yet it's so good, I just kept reading.   Love, love, love this.

Fantastic ramp up to the end
Transformers: Lost Light #23 - Jack Lawrence,James Lamar Roberts

Funny, heartfelt, full of action and adventure.   I absolutely loved this, as the secrets come out and we learn truths this series, and the previous one, had been building up to for years. 

 

Bittersweet because I knew it would end soon, though.
