    Hooks, of the Allspark has brought to our attention that Simon Furman has brought to light future one-shot comics, which will focus on specific characters.

    The first two will focus on Shockwave and Nightbeat.

    Heres hoping they don't restrict themselves to the G1 era.

    What's "Escalation" about? Or did they mean the "Evolutions" series?

    Excellent idea! I really hope we can get some issues focusing on some of those characters with interesting backstories and biographies that you just can't explore normally. Finback, I'm looking at you!

    I'd like to see some of the more interesting backstories fleshed out, like Thundercracker and his doubts over the Decepticon cause, or Blusestreak and his survivor-guilt.

    It's an excellent idea all round, and I can't wait to see both Shockwave and Nightbeat in standalone tales. Sweetness ^^

    A series focusing on Shockwave?

    I'd say I just wet my pants, but I think I've run all out of urine this year.

    After reading the bio on characters like Bomb Burst and Venom in DW's MTMTE I'd love to see single issues focusing on these, but seriously; how many TF comics can IDW realisticly produce without suffering the same fate as DW... Maybe they should slow down a little.

    This sound really cool. I'd love to see a stand-alone issue with Bluestreak, maybe finally tell us the story of the destruction of his home city. I'm looking forward to Nightbeat. I would rather Shockwave show up in the main comic, but I'm sure I'll like it anyway.
