    Once was a time I'd have shrugged off comments like these as petty naysaying.

    But damn if I'm not thinking the exact same thing.

    While I might feel Lost Light hasn't been his strongest work, James has certainly earned recognition for his body of work on the whole. I'm still happy for him.

    As long as it gets more people to buy on Comixology.
    Everything else be damned.

    I think we can all agree that out of all the titles published in 2017 which featured Transformers characters, Lost Light was certainly among the top 10.

    That's saying so little, though.

    Everyone's laughing, but I think you can say good-bye to the quality of MTME/LL/whatever. No need to fix anything if you get a title like this.

    Well that was unexpected...

    I guess Marvel really lowered everyone's standards this year.

    Also, out of all the artists, Sara won Best Artist...? The competition must have been awful...

    His latest issues have been much better.
    I don't read any other comics and the first year of MTMTE was much more deserving of such a price, but LL was still by far the best Transformers title we got last year.

    If only this vote wasn't about the entire Comixology inventory. Not just TF books.

    When I look who won the best artist and what IS on the entire Comixology...

    I can't laugh just because I'd rather weep.

    And that's all about the popularity contests.

    Honestly, it's a new low all across the board.
