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.

I spoiled myself for the big reveal
Transformers: Lost Light #22 - Brendan Cahill,James Lamar Roberts

I didn't mean to, but someone was talking about it on Twitter.   Oops.   Regardless, it took my breath away, because it's huge, and it makes sense to me on multiple levels, none of which I can talk about without spoiling a couple people I got started on this - and that I'm still hoping will finish this. 

 

  I laughed so hard a couple times during a break in my class.  Everyone ignored me because I was hoping up a Transformers comic, but they don't know what they're missing out on here!

 

Love, love, love this so damn much.  I can't believe I only have three more issues and then no more James Roberts writing Transformers!   It just can't be true, and it is at the same time.

Love, love, love!
Transformers: Lost Light #21 - Jack Lawrence,James Lamar Roberts

Also, my finger is clearly not broken; I can bend it all the way with a minimal twinge, so longer reviews from now on - yay!

 

This is leading up to some pretty astounding revelations, and a huge, final fight.   Basically the Unicron mini-series, which still breaks my heart, especially since I can't find any announcement of new Transformers series. 

 

That being said, I love, love, love this series, all the way.  I know there were one or two issues that I wasn't as crazy about because of the lack of humor; I feel like normally it's so well balanced, that I felt the lack of it earlier on.   But overall?   This, along with MTMtE has to be two of my all-time favorite series. 

 

I highly suggest giving this a try if you haven't.
