Transformers_More_Than_Meets_The_Eye_BannerTransformers: More Than Meets The Eye #26 is the eight chapter in the Dark Cybertron crossover. As things move to a head, is this arc wrapping up?

The official description from IDW:

CYBERTRON FALLS! The monstrous NECROTITAN ravages the world—but is there anyone left to save it? Meanwhile, in deep space, ULTRA MAGNUS and the crew of the LOST LIGHT struggle to make sense of what they find in the depths of the scarlet sea!

Dark Cybertron certainly has its selling points but, for the most part, the farce continues. The plot is simply too wide and too complex. It has some great moments, but they don’t always need to be in this crossover. Yet, to be fair, More Than Meets The Eye #26 does have its own Transformers_More Than Meets The Eye 26moments and a decent sense of escalation. Things are coming to a close, and this issue begins to feel like a step in the right direction.

In terms of writing, James Roberts and John Barber do a decent job considering they’re juggling 3 to 5 different plots (depending on how you look at it). Some are more self-contained and this is where the writing becomes much more solid. Overall, however, it’s still the same old argument – the wide scope of the plot adds too much confusion for the script to deal with.

Visually, we still have the different art styles to deal with – James Raiz, Atilio Rojo and Livid Ramondelli are on pencils and Josh Perez and Livid Ramondelli provide the colors. I still don’t think this is needed – More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise had some great art styles as they were.

Overall, this is still a step in the right move, no matter how small. The ending at least adds a sense of scale and the next issue looks light it has the potential to be rather impressive. On the plus side, it’s at least one more issue out of the way.
