    That dialogue fucking hurts.

    I've been out of the loop with LL for a while, but holy hell, it's like every TF has been posessed by a Twitch streamer.

    I wonder how long they figure out there was a mutiny. Mirage can go invisible and none the Protectobots were born yesterday. I mean I seen more smoke and mirrors from Getaway that put some politicians to shame. Getaway his whole greeting is a major misdirection and the fact I am betting they were not intending to stop for the shuttle. However, the reason they stopped they actually need a medic since all the medical crew is with Rodimus.

    You've been under stasis lock with Tailgate for 6 million years? The dialogue has been like this. It's fine.

    Careful Powerflash. First Aid can pull triage on you if he wants.

    Man, Groove looks a lot like Nightbeat in that first page. Probably because it looks like his "helmet" is blue instead of black there. Interesting that they've still got Rook there alongside Groove, and Groove is clearly the same size as Streetwise. I know the cover for 12 shows Rook and no Groove, but covers aren't always trustworthy.

    It's absolutely not fine.

    I don't remember First Aid talking like this, being the fast-talking goofball the dialogue implies him to be. He literally says "R.I.P." instead of rest in peace, which is ignoring how awkward the sentence is anyway coming from a character like him and not, say, a Reddit user. I know MTMTE/LL has struggled with characters having distinct voices when everyone is a sarcastic rambler who talks like a message board post, but this issue is a particularly awful example.

    Oh, I thought it was Nightbeat.

    Noticed that immediately, and I haven't touched an issue with First Aid in a long while.

    Like holy shit, they sound so blatantly similar. I don't have much experience with Hot Spot in IDW but if he's anything like the classic G1 bio, he should sound nothing like that either.

    Or in simpler terms First Aid or anyone else is not a Rodimus clone in terms of personality or speech patterns. Re-read the issues with First Aid's first appearance on Delphi and you'll see the difference.

    Thats one of the bigger issues with LL. It treats everyone like a slightly different version of Rodimus and it continues here.

    EDIT: btw I forgot to ask. Did I see Scattershot among Getaway's crew?

    EDIT: Nevermind. I think its Siren.

    Who is the dark guy between Strafe and Atomizer in Getaway's first panel?

    Or Dogfight perhaps? Isn't he part of the security team along with most of the other guys present there?

    No, I'll agree it's a lot worse now. No one talks like an actual sane person in any of the situations they are put in anymore. Everyone has become Roberts' comedy voice.

    I think you are referring to Doublecross.

    Finally we are getting back to the ship that is the NAME OF THE COMIC!  :D 
    Also, nice to see that Roberts finally decided to just ignore that stupid part of continuity and un-kill all of the Monsterbots.

    Man, the way everyone's getting the characters confused here, it's almost like talking about a Ramondelli comic.

    Hey IDW, get rid of Lawrence and the guy who's pretending to be JRoberts.

    The dialogue was off-putting enough. Ughh...

    I get it. Quips are fun and everything. Everyone loves quips.

    But here's a hint - if you got that many "funny" lines per page and your characters aren't Harley Quinn or GoTG then you're overdoing it. Especially when your dialogue makes aforementioned comics look dead serious in comparison.

    Everyone in this scene sounds the same. Gravity of the situation was completely lost on me.

    It was said many times about Furman or Barber that their characters often can't find their own voice... Well, these days it looks as if LL also reached this stage.

    Yeah, I've gotta echo the sentiment on everyone's voices being way too similar, First Aid never sounded like Rodimus, yo. I mean I'm still looking forward to the issue and I'm nowhere near wanting to drop Lost Light, but JRo could really do with dialling back the constant quipping, not every character needs to be a smart arse.

    Eh? Repugnus and co. have been on the Lost Light since the start of MTMTE season 2.
