Simon Furman has updated his Blog once again, this time providing some cryptic information about the final issue of the "Devastation" arc. The following is the exact text as written by Simon himself:

"This time up it’s the turn of Transformers Devastation #6, the wrap-up of this the third ‘-ion’ arc (and as ever, I’ll try and make this more of a tease than a spoiler). And boy what an arc this has been! Big stuff happening! That tired old phrase ‘things will never be the same again’ is wholly and justifiably applicable here. Stuff is revealed! Stuff is tied up! Other stuff kicks off! It’s a packed old end of arc issue, with Reapers versus Decepticons (to a shattering conclusion!), Hot Rod versus Headmasters (to a turbo-charged conclusion… of sorts) and Hunter/Sunstreaker versus the head of the Machination (to a point where we absolutely know who is who and what is what, but with a distinct ‘To be continued…’). Oh yeah! Plus, (much) more on the Dead Universe cast, with Galvatron making his first Earthbound moves, and first full appearances for Jhiaxus and ‘the Transformer formerly known as Nova Prime.’ The main focus, though, falls on our second fully fledged no-holds-barred (devastating) battle of this arc, this time between the catastrophic Reapers and the Ore-13 charged Decepticons. Expect casualties! Carnage! Shocks! Last issue saw Starscream back in the fray, strutting his stuff, but this issue has him fighting (once again) side-by-side with Megatron (who isn’t exactly chuffed to see him!). Fallout/repercussions for sure. Hot Rod makes a shocking decision (kind of prompted by Optimus Prime’s equally momentous decision last issue) and Skywatch prepare to kick back before things get even more out of hand. And if you think that maybe feeds into a certain upcoming Spotlight, well, you’d be right on the money. Oh, and don’t think I’ve forgotten about Sixshot. He too has a part to play. All I can say is… phew! This one has it all! Really. Devastation #6 hits stores in February 08. Art by EJ Su."

'Chuffed' - very pleased.

Strangely, 'Chuff' - rear orifice!

Different origin for very similar words.

Can't wait. After this summer's Megatron: Origin & Avenger fumbles, it's nice to see a book that is both interesting & on track.

BTW, No more of this "I'm 1st!!" stuff. Please.

I can't wait, and yeah I'm glad Starscream is still in the picture, I hope he stays. I hope the battles aren't rushed, like the Megatron Orgins.

You should really read Optimus Prime's spotlight issue for more info on the dead universe.

Sounds like a lot to go into one comic book. Hopefully it isn't rushed, like we only get one page for the entire Decepticon / Reaper battle or something.

If Furman can pace it nicely it should be good. I hope that we have a decent ending to this arc as Furman often writes brilliant beginnings and middles but leaves his endings sort of flat. I'm glad all of his threads are starting to come together.
