So I finished More Than Meets the Eye, and here's my review of it
go buy it
nah but for real, now that I've read the final volume of it, I can safely say, not only is this one of the best transformers comics I've ever read, it's one of the best comics period. This is a character driven story first and foremost, so much so that the end goal doesn't really seem to matter all that much when you're reading it, you're just enjoying these characters and the way they bounce off of each other. Not only that, but because these characters are for the most part, a buncha D-list Transformers, most f which people haven't really heard of, it's quite easy for new readers to hop into it.
The general plot is, the Autobot/Decepticon war is over, this group of no name 'bots are out to find the Knights of Cybertron, a group of ancient do gooders who they hope will help solve their problems back on their homeworld... with many, many detours, but these detours make up most of the storyline and help us dive into the characters to see what makes them tick. That is another thing, these characters are all amazingly well written, they're relatable and very funny, but it's not all comedy with the Lost Light crew, James Roberts, the writer, handles tone shifts very well, things can be funny one minute and all go to hell in the next and it doesn't seem jarring. When people die in this series, you care, and man it hurts. The art is amazing, it's so detailed, but not so much so you can't tell what's going on.
it's well written, funny, dramatic, beautifully drawn, it's got it all, I highly recommend More Than Meets the Eye, as it truly is that
can't wait to see what happens in Lost Light #1 and why the heck Rodimus' color scheme now looks like the love child of Cyclonus and Tailgate
also on another note, I got Titans Return Rewind, he's adorable and wonderful
