Some thoughts about Transformers: Lost Light #22
Cybertron has turned out to be a Transformer and many of the original deities have finally show themselves in the most unexpected ways.
Yet another issue of pure set-up but it gets the job done in some ways.
James Roberts continues to close the door on this universe by finally giving a few answers about some of its most mysterious aspects. As we learnt during the last issue, Megatron is back and his presence creates a pretty logical reaction from the whole group, it was interesting to see how the difference in time affected Megatron's journey while the things that happened during seems intriguing. Roberts also implements his classic sense of humour to lighten the mood.
The thing is that this is mostly a chapter of pure exposition. We got exposition for what happened to Megatron all this time, exposition about the current conflict and finally, espoxition about the Gods of Cybertron which is not bad per se but gets pretty overwhelming at times and doesn't make the plot progress that much, is too much info at the same time and it isn't told in the most delicate way. Although it does offer a fun surprise towards the end.
Brendan Cahill handles the art and is pretty solid thanks to his flexible, semicartoony style.
Not bad, not great. All of this better have a good conclusion.
