Spotlight Sideswipe--Simon Furman Updates Blog!

TRANSFORMERS fiction creator, and writer extra-ordinaire Simon Furman updates his blog with 'Revelation's End'...note there could be what one might consider spoilers included.

Oops, another long absence from my blog. Will tell you what’s been monopolizing my time — soon. Anyhow, out this week (Wednesday 8th in the US, Thursday 9th in the UK) is Transformers Spotlight: Sideswipe, the final part of the epic, if slightly squeezed, Revelation saga. And what a lot we, that is myself and artist EJ Su, packed in! The return of Bludgeon, Autobot Pretenders, more Arcee, all-out battles on three fronts, Nemesis Prime versus Optimus Prime, oh and Sideswipe! Yeah, he gets a bit of love too, seeing as how it is his Spotlight.

Read the full blog here, and remember to grab your SPOTLIGHT: Sideswipe this week!

Can't wait to read it, but not happy that this is the final "-tion" story we will be getting, and the fact that the last 4 Spotlights have felt forced due to the earlier than anticipated wrap up.

All Hail has been a let down in comparison to the "-tion" series thus far, and I cannot see Maximum Dinobots having the grand scope of scale that the "-tion" series has had either.

This is all very exciting news! Has anyone else noticed that the Sideswipe spotlight artwork looks a lot like Earl Norem's illustrations from the 80s?
