Astounding ending
Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #5 - Alex Milne,Christos Gage,John Barber

This is an ending.   In fact, it says so at the end: many times comics have a 'the end' panel, and this one does.   When they want to tease a possible sequel it's 'the end?'   This one is just 'the end'.   (That doesn't mean that there never will be a sequel, just that one isn't planned, even in a hinting, teasing phase, right now.  As far as I understand things anyway!)

 

Stardrive is disillusioned with both the Cybertronians and the Space Knights.   She's starting to discover who she really is, and that includes scraps with the Space Knights and realizing that Rom could have done more to stand up for her in the first place. 

 

I think the ending is perfect: Stardrive needs time alone, and the Autobots and Space Knights need to really think about what they do, how, and who they trust.   The Decepticons and the Dire Wraiths, though?  Those two are made for each other, if only they wouldn't beat each other into a bloody or oily puddle vying for power...

 

Love, love, love.   But I'm enjoying reading more than writing reviews now, so...

Yes!
Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #4 - Alex Milne,Christos Gage,John Barber

I thought this was going to be a four part mini-series, and then I got part five.  Um, yes!   This gets back to down-and-dirty, furthering the Space Knights and the Autobots, and then bringing them close together. 

 

Will Ultra Magnus sacrifice himself?   And if so, will the Space Knights honor that sacrifice, or will they destroy half a planet?   

 

All to be revealed in issue five.

Transformers: Lost Light #11 - Jack Lawrence,James Lamar Roberts

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.

Yes!
Transformers: Lost Light #10 - Jack Lawrence,James Lamar Roberts

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...

The Ship Beyond Time
The Ship Beyond Time - Heidi Heilig

This was an excellent follow-up to The Girl from Everywhere. Better pacing, better romance, more action, higher stakes, better proofreading (pedants rejoice!), and a somewhat bittersweet ending that simultaneously gave me some closure and made me wish this was a trilogy instead of a duology. I really enjoyed it and I’ll miss Nix and Kashmir. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for Heilig’s next series.
