TRANSFORMERS LOST LIGHT TP VOL 03

(W) James Roberts (A) Alex Milne, Brendan Cahill, Jack Lawrence, Sara Pitre-Durocher (CVR) Jack Lawrence

Crammed into a dead Decepticon astropod that’s 10 sizes too small, the displaced crew of the Lost Light faces their most serious threat yet: each other. No worries though, Rodimus can save the day! Or maybe they’ll all die… Plus, the Scavengers have never had it so good. The war is a receding memory, their patchy service records have been forgotten, and the five of them can roam the galaxy as they please. All’s well that ends well? Not quite. Collects issues #13-18.

ROM COLD FIRE HOT WAR TP

(W) Chris Ryall, Christos Gage (A) David Messina, Ron Joseph, Paolo Villanelli (CVR) Loston Wallace

The evil Dire Wraiths have escaped to Earth but are hounded by a Knight of the Solstar Order, the one feared more than all others. He is Rom, the Wraith-slayer. Rom, the Spaceknight!

Having followed the Dire Wraiths across the galaxy to Earth, Rom finds they have infiltrated all levels of society, hiding in plain sight. Replacing many humans in key leadership positions, the Wraiths’ plan to dominate the planet-and everyone in it-is gaining momentum. But Rom finds resistance from the humans as well, who fear he is just another alien invader. He is joined in the battle by two other Solstar Knights… but are they here as friends or foes?
