Five years ago, Rodimus and a collection of traumatised, lovelorn and/or sarcastic Autobots set off on a quest to find Cyberutopia. So far, they've made a right hash of it. They've misplaced their map. They've lost their ship, the Lost Light, to a mutinous escapologist. Oh, and they're dead.
•   The crew from MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE might be dead, but the LOST LIGHT lives on!
•   Incredible artist Jack Lawrence (Skylanders, Micronauts) makes his Transformers debut with returning writer James Roberts (Transformers: MTMTE)!

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Dave MacPhail Dec 14, 2016

    New readers, old readers, folks who have never before picked up a Transformers book or even considered it, pick this up and give it the chance it deserves. It is one of the most forward thinking and progressive series you are likely to ever read and much of what is tackled in these pages can be applied to our lives and current or past events of importance. Despite that it is not preachy nor overbearing, it shows a creative team that truly love bringing these characters to life for us allowing us to maybe learn a thing or two about ourselves and have a laugh along the way. This is by far the easiest recommendation I have made this month. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Dec 15, 2016

    Transformers: Lost Light #1 is a fun read that introduces some interesting new characters and leaves off with an intriguing plot for Roberts and his team to explore. Megatron's post-war characterization continues to be a highlight and, if this issue is any indication, the next arc will examine just what type of legacy he's left behind for himself and if Cybertron really would be better off without him.

    Lost Light, née MTMTE, returns in full force and full form after a nearly half-year long break if you don't count issue 56, 57 and the Revolution one-shot, and boy did I miss this series.

    Jack Lawrence does an admirable job with the art, but it obviously lack the Milne touch... though I'm betting it might have to do more a bit with the inking being slightly wanting at times.

    In any case, Lost Light #1 is a great comic, but it certainly has its flaws, mainly being that it requires a -lot- of pre-existing knowledge for fully get this comic, and while Roberts and the Editorial try their darnest at the very end with 5 pages of prose that recaps ALL of MTMTE (up to issue 55), I do wonder how many people will bother with it and feel this comic is too convoluted and therefore not enjoy this comic vis a vis those that enjoy it at its fullest because they've been reading James Roberts' material since Chaos Theory and Last Stand of the Wreckers.

    Aw yeah, MTMTE is back and just as crazy as ever! I love that the time machine has to be configured as this little crawl space now, it's so delightfully undignified.
