Seibertron member Repugnus has reported another Furman blog update with another Spotlight announcement.

And this should surprise all of you who have been paying attention to all that Furman has said concerning the future of the IDW comics...

Don't know what's going on?

Maybe this will help:
we’ll just say for now that a certain Jhiaxus has been ‘dabbling’ and Arcee is not happy about it one little bit. In fact, she’s pretty darn homicidal!

Click here to find out more, or simply scroll down to have a gander at the line art for the cover...

Front Paged and Credited.

This will be interesting to read, Bet this Arcee is nothing like her G1 counterpart, and that can only be a good thing.

Anyone else noticing a trend to have crazy post movie cast... Kup, Arcee, and even Springer to a point...

The second spotlight that I actually want to get! (First was Kup, which I think I picked up on Free Comic Day.)

This is one character that I have wanted to learn a lot about.

Never would have guessed. Nice to see that, judging from the cover, it won't be the mother-hen Arcee but someone who seems to be a tad more unhinged we'll be reading about.

Art looks great and I am liking the idea of Arcee finally being more Warrior than Mother Hen or token Female. Have her stand shoulder to shoulder with the arse kickers!

Looks like Furman found a way to justify female Transformers after all.

Whew. I saw the headline and immediately thought "Wheelie". Don't scare me like that!

Guess we know where Fort Max is coming up, don't we? (Looks at B/W pic on news page...)

Hmmm....fun. I wouldn't say it was unexpected, but it is a good thing, at least, I think it's a good thing.

Also, since she is involved with Jhiaxus, it might be that she was on the original ship crew. Or somehow she has found him as part of the lost crew.

Now I keep looking at that picture and wondering if my Fort Max statement was true. The head really reminds me of his (on the left), but the chest and shoulders do not, which is fine, because I would imagine this is a pre-headmasters style.

If that's true, then maybe that explains why there are feminine robots in Megatron: Origin and none in any of Furman's "present day" work to date. They probably existed once but have been wiped out (or died out) since the age of the Senate.

Valkyrie

It's about damn time she lived up to that title.

You know, I was just wondering about Arcee and other female Transformers in the IDW verse the other day and was even wondering if Arcee was going to get a spotlight. Now, I've always liked Arcee myself, so I'm quite happy to see her in the new universe and I'm very eager to see what is up with her.

Looks good to me. Can't wait to see it.

And that looks like Nova Prime in the background of the cover, too. Definitely hoping we get some more information about the Ark and its crew...

Is the sextet on the cover the Pretender Monsters?

That's for the next month! ;)

Hm ... I personally like Wheelie. Everyone's animosity towards Wheelie and Daniel makes me think that I ought to draw up a few ideas for a Mosaic page or two. Hmm ...

Wish I got the Kup issue for free......I was not too entertained with it......

Yeap, looks like them, at least as they appeared in the Prime Spotlight.

Wow, she really does look homicidal. I hope she at least damages Jhiaxus a good portion. I really didn't see her coming. At this rate, we'll have a nice collection of Spotlights w/characters we'd probably never see coming in 4 million years. Personally, I'd like to see Blitzwing.

It makes sense since they were created by Jhiaxus, if he's in something, they probably would be too. IS that what is doing that is pissing her off?

I like Counterpunch's ideas on the Valkyrie type thing. However, I don't want them to hate dudes...I would like that Springer/Arcee relationship to be able to be done, somehow, but yes, I know we are not even sure that they exist in the same time frame here.
