Four pages from THE TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE 3...

One of Rodimus' crew has been found dead, seemingly killed by something terrible called a Sparkeater.





I first read "the Seething Moon" as "the Something Soon," which would make a pretty sweet name for a fairy tale monster.

Anyway, Rodimus orders most of the crew to head to their quarters and stay put there until the situation's resolved, for their own safety:










So Cyclonus provides a brief overview of the war.

so Skids is the badass, don't tell me the rules, type.

Thank god, there's just so few of them in fiction, it's a group that needs to be more represented.

He seems to be more playful rebellious than angry rebellious. Doctor Who, not Wolverine.

RIght after he goes up the vent, he immediately pops his head back down and asks Swerve if he like music, a complete non sequitur uttered for no reason whatsoever as far as I can tell.

Transformers is pretty good at having a variety in this respect. You've got Bots who don't like the rules but'll follow them, and bots who don't. Bots who don't mind the rules, bots who are loyal soldier types who'll follow them up until the moment breaking them will help save a squadmate. Bots who live by the rules, bots who love the rules (Ultra Magnus!). Bots who use the rules. Bots who stay within the rules but push them at every turn. Playful rebellious bots, and Wolverine rebellious bots (Arcee, I'm looking at you!).

All kinds of bots, really.

So, Sparkeaters are like vampires?

Considering the damage, something a bit more violent!

Preeeety much, yeah. The one we meet in this issue has a bodyplan pretty much identical to your average Cybertronian, but he's seriously damaged, which suggests 'undead Cybertronian'.

Like a Cybertronian zombie, only he pulls out the brain and leaves it there, and then eats the spark.

I like Cyclonus' take on the war...

Same here. Though of late we are getting a lot of angles on the war. But Cyclonus's is the more balanced and less judgmental I notice.

At this point, I can't help but imagine James Roberts has a notebook or a text file somewhere full of pithy ideas like the Necrobot or Megatron's Nightmare Engine or the Malware Brigade..

.. and he is never going to run out. He's just going to keep on worldbuilding-by-inference, and it is just going to keep working.
