John Barber (w) • Andrew Griffith (a) • Griffith, Casey Coller (c)
NEW CYBERTRON! It’s a brand new day—and STARSCREAM is in charge! But running a planet isn’t as easy as it looks… if BUMBLEBEE couldn’t do it, why does the former DECEPTICON think he can?
2 regular covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio
FC • 32 pages • $3.99
variant Livio Ramondeli cover, interconnected with issues 21 and 22!
- Introducing fan-favorite character RATTRAP into the world of ROBOTS IN DISGUISE!
- The dawn of a new age—or the end of everything?!
- The countdown to DARK CYBERTRON continues!
Fingers crossed he doesn’t get dead in one issue.
Oh, I do skim through the MTMTE comic, and RiD too. I’ve bought a few physical copies, and some off Comixology. And you’re right, even if someone is not a big comicbook fan, MTMTE has excellent storytelling, characterization, and concepts. The art and design is stellar too. I appreciate the epic-scale sci-fi adventures the cast gets involved in, while always keeping the focus on the characters and their motivations. I’m a big fan of the whole Lost Light crew, their interactions, and their development. Particularly Cyclonus and Tailgate, those two are great. But, I don’t follow it issue by issue, nor do I feel justified in discussing it. This only has to do with my personal investment and choices in media consumption.
Again, comics are not a favored medium by me (for various reasons), but in spite of this I still really like and respect MTMTE. So, for all those following my blog with even a passing interest in Transformers, please take this as a strong endorsement* to check out IDW’s Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye.
*(I rather enjoyed the first issue of Rage of the Dinobots, but admittedly, this has a lot to do with the art and the focus on characters/concepts I personally enjoy)

Ha that’s one of those shows I’ve been meaning to watch! Sorry for another question but I’m wondering, do you follow the TF ongoings? I don’t recall you ever talking about them.
Admittedly, I’m not much of a comics person and as such don’t talk about them much. But I do enjoy More than Meets the Eye due to the art, dialogue, excellent character interactions, and creative sci-fi plots. I’m loosely following RiD as well, due to the presence of Sky-Byte and the hope that Thundercracker might appear. I’ve scanned through the previous IDW ongoing and found its quality of storytelling inconsistent, but on the whole, pretty darned cool. Again, not much of a comics person, more into cartoons… I own the hardcover Last Stand of the Wreckers, but that’s a special, special case. In fact, Transformers comics are pretty much the only comics I actually read, so that’s something if nothing else.
It’s all about Sky-Byte…
And, yes, you should check out Symbionic Titan. Its a gem.
