This blog hits the Skids. (Boo!)

We did a quick scan from this issue already, last February; but I may have mentioned how Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye is a book that's going to hold up for multiple re-reading. And getting another copy of this comic proved it!

The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #22, "Little Victories" Written by James Roberts, art by James Raiz. With a new cover, this issue was packaged with Autobot Skids, the "forgetful theoretician" who is also apparently a Swiss army knife of weapons. But, the comic features Rewind's video journal of the crew of the Lost Light. Seems simple enough...except one of that crew was revealed as a traitor in later issues! And everything the traitor says on camera seems innocuous enough then, but super ominous now. It's great work from a writer playing a long game.

Skids doesn't play a big role in this issue, but a bit. I don't recall seeing him recently in the title, but it's a big cast. Get 'em both!
