    Ok, I just finished LSOTW in paperback, and I must say i'm impressed.
    I'm sure it's the best TF Fiction i've read since Time Wars.
    I think the prose story Bullets rocked too, it reminded me of the UK Annual stories.

    However, it did leave me wondering where exactly it fits in the timeline of established canon, or wether it stands alone.

    There are also references to other events, like Guzzle's issues with Kup that I didn't really underestand.

    Is there anywhere I can go to fill in the blanks?

    It's a reference to Spotlight Kup, where the title character accidentally killed a lot of Autobots... Some of them being friends of Guzzle.

    It's wedged somewhere between the end of All Hail Megatron and when Ultra Magnus arrives on Earth

    Arrives when?

    I guess I should be looking for something else to read now, but I can't imagine that there's anything of this quality about that i've not read yet.

    Guess i'd better hunt down Spotlight Kup, though I was not at all impressed by Spotlight Shockwave that came free with the IDW iPhone app.

    sorry, Magnus arrives on earth in the ongoing comic.

    My favorite spotlights are Wheelie and Blurr-- you can read those w/o any reference to the rest of IDW's line. Not as good as LSoTW, but for single issues they aren't too bad.

    No, no, not how she got down onto the planet with the Wreckers, how she was running with Ultra Magnus at the beginning of LSotW. The last time i recall her being seen in continuity is when Ratchet uncouples Hunter from Sunstreaker at the end of Maximum Dinobots (i think)

    I think it comes from when Verity and Jimmy (? been a while since he was seen) were taken into space with the autobots back at the end of escalation through lack of choice.

    Just with we had more Verity in the comics now. As a character she was jsut more interesting than Army boy.

    What happened to Grimlock is what I want to know, either he is dead as per Overlord's orders 'Kill every prisoner' or was taken with Shockwave. But since we haven't seen mention and Shockwave is back following Megatron for some reason...

    Grimlock is too big a character for them to kill off panel, Furman's favourite son will go down fighting in a blaze of glory!
