I sincerely hope that this doesn't mark the beginning of MTMTE being reined in and steered back towards the Cybertron mess.

Ooooh, Nick Roche back to writing again. Just might have to pick that one up.

What sign are you getting of that? My read on the solicits is that RID is lurching into a Megatron plotline while MTMTE gets round to Overlord.

While I'm not looking forward to Megatron's return, I am very much looking forward to Nick Roche's.

If Cybertron's falling to the 'Cons it's going to be "all hands to the pump" at some point -- even if there's a period in which they string out a tired PoW storyline first.

Also, Overlord's likely to unbalance the MTMTE plot.

More cheered by the fact that it's Roche doing the Megs SL, though.

Quite likely. Though I'm not too fussed on what happens to the plot - it's the stuff that happens in between the plot that is MTMTE's treasure.

Oh dear. The megatron spotlight sounds like its returning to the dark days of furman's style of spotlights.

Meaning that it serves merely as either a lead in to an ongoing plot or as filler rather than a character centered solo adventure of a revelation about a characters past or hidden motivations (like how earlier spotlights like shockwave did so well in)

Wait, wasn't Shockwave one big set-up to Escalation? The Spotlights lost their way when they became a defacto secondary plot, in my opinion.

Perversely -- and from the word go -- they sucked all of the interesting plot points out of the main books, serving them up as jumbled bits and pieces rather than an overall narrative.

That's true but I'm not sure I minded too much. I had faith in the -ations moving the plot forward and the Spotlights dropping in world-building details. When the plot strangled the main books at around the same time it ate the Spotlights, did it not? My memory is pretty hazy about the running order so I might just be narrativising.

Yes but the focus was on introducing shockwave. His motivations, his personality, and his role in the bigger picture. We get an insight to his thinking process and his unique character and the issue could stand as a stand alone tale. Same with six shot, ultra Magnus etc. Compare that with, say spotlight grimlock or Optimus prime. Those ended up as ongoing dead universe arc issues rather than standalone spotlights.

Blur was a return to the good ol days for a while.

i did not know that there were Prime comics. Fancy!

i like the cover of that Dinobot mini-series. Very pretty. wonder if the content is up to much, or is it G1 archetypes all the way as usual...
