Boroughcon has recently had the opportunity to speak to Transformers More than Meets the Eye and Lost Light writer James Roberts.
This interview covers some interesting points for those who have been following the series. In particular, there is mention of what is in store immediately following the current “Dissolution” story arc, as well as some general information on James’ creative style.
Most interesting are the points about how the rebranding into Lost Light has changed things slightly. The new character of Anode was always intended to appear in “More than Meets the Eye Season 3”, but that story arc – the one immediately following The Dying of Light – would have originally focused on Getaway and the crew of the Lost Light, and their paths would have crossed that of Anode. With the relaunch and rebranding as Lost Light, the plot needed to be modified to be acceptable to new readers and resolve the cliffhanger ending of The Dying of Light earlier than originally planned – hence, Anode is now acting as an audience surrogate to help to introduce new readers to the wonderful world James Roberts has been crafting.
