I'm finally caught up and catching Transformers: Lost Light (formerly More than Meets the Eye) monthly. It may be my favorite comic now.
I'm not caught up with the other ongoing, Till All Are One, and jumping on is a little tricky given the trade schedule. Vol 1's out and collects #1-#4; the latest single issue is #6. So maybe I'll be able to catch up when Vol 2's out? Or maybe by then the monthlies will be two months ahead again. (At least back issues are half-price on Comixology...)
There is a third ongoing series, Optimus Prime. Regrettably, I cannot say that I give a fuck about it.
Transformers: Robots in Disguise was a solid damn book, House of Cards on Cybertron...but then it got retooled after its first major "season" arc (which ended with Starscream being elected King of Cybertron) and turned into more of the boring Earth shit that made me quit reading the comics years ago. (Although it did
give us the "None of this is my problem. Have fun, idiots."
panel, and a subplot about Thundercracker writing terrible screenplays and not realizing they're terrible. And an issue narrated by a drone and a dog. ... ...You know what, okay, it was still pretty awesome sometimes. Just mostly not.)
Fortunately, the Windblade miniseries picked up the Cybertron storyline (now with the cast of Beast Wars, and if the sentence "Rattrap is Starscream's Starscream" does not make you giddy then you and I are very different people), and that's what's currently continuing as Till All Are One. So I'd like to keep up with that! I had my CBG order vol 1; maybe I'll switch over to monthlies after vol 2?
I have a whole lot more to say about this stuff, as should probably be clear by how much I've talked about it already. I'm thinking a series of blog posts is probably in order, but that sounds a lot like work.
(And how do you even structure such a thing? Do I start with Phase 1? On the one hand, Phase 1 is a mediocre letdown; on the other, it's got Megatron Origin, which is not only a good comic, it's probably the most important comic in defining what the IDW-verse became, since it explains Megatron's and the Decepticons' motivations and why the war happened in the first place.
And then you get into Phase 2 and MtMtE and RiD, and if that's where you're jumping on there's a lot of infuriating continuity that's not going to immediately make sense -- and I say that as a guy who read about half the stuff before that -- and initially RiD is probably the better book, but as noted above it sorta founders after Starscream's Coronation, and then there's a Crossover Event I didn't read because (1) it wasn't in the Humble Bundle and (2) fuck Crossover Events, and I've forgotten most of the stuff I wanted to cap because it cracked me up (though I definitely remember the one where Rodimus gives Megatron a gold star for mending his evil ways), and...)
