    I'm digging how fun the art is. :)  Nautica and the others look good in it. Also love her opinion line and Firestar getting dosed. lol

    This isn't the same artist for LL, right? Because I'm digging this style.

    You mean this story about cartoon robots? How is the artist "killing" it? It's not like it's a style that doesn't mesh with the characters.

    Nah, it's Priscilla Tramontano filling in for Lawrence.

    Love Nautica and Velocity, and Lug\'s been alright so far, even if her plotline in the opening six parter was rushed, so I can tolerate Anode presumebly taking up a 4th of the issue. Still hoping her character actually goes somewhere, unlike Riptide, who was such a pointless character I actually had to look up his name.

    I'd bet you complain that an Animated season four comic would also look WAY too cartoony.

    I noticed right away because my eyes didn't immediately go "Nope!" It's not my favorite and it's definitely not Milne, but this a lot nicer. Don't have anything against him as a person, but Lawrence's art is just incredibly off-putting.

    That flashback was great. Hope this is a sign that the femmes of LL are getting characterization.

    Tramontano is not exactly one of my favorite artists in the franchise but still her style fits surprisingly well here.

    Also, this issue seems to fit my shipper needs perfectly.

    Everybody seems to want gripe about the art.  Wanna see bad comic art?  Check out DC\'s Star Trek comics back in the \'80s.  Specifically the Star Trek IV adaptation.  It made my eyes bleed...

    Ah, I thought so. The solicits have his name for the artist, but it didn't look like his work.

    Even Nautica thinks that Anode and Lug are holding the story down.

    In what way shape or form does what you just typed make any sense AT ALL? Of course Transformers Animated utilized "cartoony" animation and art. The Lost Light is NOT TF Animated. Facepalm.

    I don\'t want to crap on Lawrence, but Tramontano\'s artwork is a breath of fresh air. And the diaogue doesn\'t feel forced this time. Kinda excited for this issue, unlike previous ones.

    Firestars bit about love wasn't hacky and forced?

    I enjoy the lotty/Nautica montage.

    Art looks like a 4x3 picture forced into widescreen.

    I remebering reading a while back that someone had a complaint about the characters all starting to sound the same in another of the previews. I didn\'t see then, but I do now. Present Day Velocity\'s and Nautica\'s dialogue sounds less like Nautica and more like Lug and Anode. Or Rodimus and any other character, particularly given that Nautica has apparently adopted \"Rodimus Time\", which you think someone who works in something as advanced as quantum mechanics and warp technology would refrain from!
