    okay i'm not much of a comic book reader but i really like the Spotlights. i've already read Metroplex, Drift, Sixshot, Hot Rod, Shockwave, Ultra Magnus, and Nightbeat. So which out of the remaining Spotlights would you recommend i read next?

    Artwise Arcee and Optimus Prime.

    Kup first and foremost, and then Cliffjumper and Nightbeat for me.

    Ramjet's was hilarious. It made me wish there were tons of veiled references to an inexplicable Ramjet-led coup earlier in the books so the payoff in the spotlight would've made it that much more funny.

    Wheelie's is actually good. Its tragic and makes you really feel for the little guy. Worth a read, certainly. But you asked for the best -- and of those you haven't read, Kup is the clear winner.

    Honestly, I think the only weak Spotlights are Prowl (the *actual Spotlight: Prowl anyway... there's a much better spotlight on Prowl in All Hail Megatron #15) and Grimlock. ...mmmaybe Mirage. If only because four years on and the content within has never been touched on again.

    Spotlight Wheelie was actually amazing. I'd put it in my top 3 after Kup and Nightbeat...

    Even though they are more of a mini than individual Spotlights, I really loved the Revelation Spotlights which wrapped up Furman's run as the flagship Transformers series for IDW.

    Cyclonus, Hardhead, Doubledealer and Sideswipe.

    It would have been a lot better if he could have stretched it out over a standard 6 issue miniseries, but they had to make way for McCarthy to shake things up with All Hail Megatron.

    I keep hoping we get a payoff on Mirage's down the road.

    Prowl's was blah. His unofficial spotlight in AHM was much, much better.

    I've only read 4. Grimlock, Arcee, Jazz and Prime. I don't remember much about Prime though. I'd say Arcee is my fave, and then Jazz.
