An article has appeared on 24-7 Press Release about the current popularity of the (movie) Transformers. And in particular Ultimate Bumblebee. The article goes into detail on how the Ultimate Bumblebee collectable has become hard to find. Perhaps not news to the avid Transformers collector, but a nice read all the same.

Simon Furman has once again updated his blog, this time concerning Spotlight: Blaster, which according to Diamond Comics is to be released on Wednesday the 23rd of January 2008.

Furman assures readers that Spotlight: Blaster is a very much self-contained issue, an entry level issue if you will, before giving away a relatively spoiler free synopsis of what to expect:

Betrayed, left for dead, someone went to great lengths to silence ‘The Voice,’ and now—with Blaster returned to the fold—they set out to finish what they started. With guest appearances by the likes of Silverbolt, Bluestreak, Beachcomber, Trailbreaker and Cosmos, plus a Decepticon or two, Spotlight Blaster has something for everyone: mystery, intrigue, action, character development.

Art duties will be handled by Emiliano Santalucia, his debut work for IDW Publishing.
