I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
No, really. So much happened in this volume that my head is still spinning. In fact, I'm thinking that I'm going to have to read it again, just to make sure I have all my facts straight. There were so many things I thought I knew about these characters, and then James Roberts came in and totally blew my mind. There was a point while I was reading this where I just sat there, staring at the same set of panels, with my mouth open. Well done Roberts, well done. You are officially the master of complete and utter chaos, and I love you for it.
Interjection here to state that I also love Grim to pieces for making me love this.
Anyway, here's one of my favorite panels.
It's nice to know that even when things are blowing up, characters are dying, and everything I thought I knew about a certain character is being smashed to bits, Whirl is still the same. Plus, I can't deny, I have a soft spot for Cyclonus. That big metal teddy bear. He acts so tough, but he has a big heart too.
Here's another one of my favorite panels. Look, this volume has a lot of darkness and death. But, true to Roberts' form, it also has a lot of lighter parts too. Is it any wonder that the only person more "punch worthy" than Megatron is Whirl? Ha.
I am so completely impressed with this series. Nothing has felt forced, or convenient. Every single event has completely lined up to create a story that I just can't get enough of. These characters have become like a second family. I look forward to reading more about them, despair when they're ill or dying, and cheer when they're doing adorable family-type things. There's a panel, that I forgot to take a screen shot of, when Skids is talking about how the crew of the Lost Light is more than a group, they're his family. Truth. So much truth.
If you're on the fence about reading this, let Grim and I woo you. Convert! It's worth it.
