How interesting: the Spotlights are being packaged as Prelude in their TPB format. :-?

Appears that Prelude is a gathering of all the Spotlights being packaged with the upcoming Generations: 30th Anniversary Deluxes.

Sorry, when I'm in a rush, I drop a post in just before I need to go do whatever.

Don't worry, not a problem! ;)

I do find it interesting that they're not collected as a Spotlight TPB though.
They don't exactly prelude to anything, really. Well, not all of them at least.

Or do they? :-?

:shock:

Wonder what it could be?

The only possible link I can think of is the Metrotitans.
Maybe there'll be more stuff showing up in Trailwhatever and Hoist's Spotlights which will shed more light on the choice of this title!

Or does it refer to this "Event that the comic(s) have been building up to since Issue 1" that we keep hearing about?

Yeah, that's what I meant.

The Metrotitans were quite big (hah!) in the Annuals, and both RiD and MtMtE had heavy mentions of both. Shockpoint will be arriving soon, and I do wonder whether the two series will cross over again.

SO MUCH STUFF. Let's see if Barber and Roberts can wrap it together well.

I have no doubt that Roberts and Barber can pull together whatever they have planned.

That said, not sure if I want the TPB. I really only want Bee and Megs.
