Transformers Spotlight Trailcutter iTunes Preview

TF_Trailcutter_Spotlight_cvrA225x225-75

Apple’s iTunes has put up a brief lower-res preview of IDW’s Transformers Spotlight Trailcutter. In this story titled “The Reluctant Specialist” the Autobot also known as Trailbreaker takes center stage. The preview doesn’t give much away – but the artwork is more than enough reason to take a look. Check it out over on iTunes books here.

    Ooh, that art is very nice indeed. The expressive faces are especially nice, and he manages it without them getting weird/human-looking ('Bee smiling on the last page of his Spotlight is creepy as hell). Manages to feel way more MTMTE-y, to coin a ridiculous adjective, than the Annual did, even without the usual colour palette.

    Yeah this is so by far the best looking Spotlight we got out of the new bunch.

    I wish the annual looked at least half as good as this!

    Between his work for the Mars Attack crossover and this I feel Frank is kicking it out of the park with every new issue!

    And I'm glad that Trailbreker got such a good treatment for his Spotlight because chanses are his toy will be the single most soughted out toy of the new Generation line (since everyone was CRYING fot a classic Trailbreaker for years now) so his spotligh will probably be read by the biggest ammount of people.

    Looks like Roche's art, which means it fits in nicely.

    I suspect this may be a drunken hallucination of Trailbreaker or something.

    That art is ace!
    I'm hoping for a nice bit of fun here and nothing more. With the possible exception of the Megatron Spotlight, these comics have been constrained by the fact they were written to be packaged with toys. So the drunken antics of the Trailbreakercutter of the Lost Light might not be palatable to the target audience, alas.

    It is. Someone who is suppose to be dead in MTMTE is alive there.

    We don't know when exactly this Spotlight is set, so which characters are alive is irrelevant.

    I think this is the "past". I think they are repairing the hole that all O them Autobots flew out of at the beginning of MTMTE.
