This past fall I got super into Activision and High Moon's Transformers: War For Cybertron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron games and had a blast rediscovering what I dug about a number of Autobots and Decepticons. I've watched my share of TF cartoons (and, yeah, the Bayformers movies), but these games marked the first time that I thought of guys like Skywarp and Thundercracker as much more than Starscream action figure repaints I couldn't stop myself from wanting as a kid. My burgeoning interest gets satiated even further this Wednesday with IDW's release of Transformers Spotlight: Thundercracker, which follows the Seeker's activities during the war for Cybertron and ties into the publisher's current Transformers ongoing series. IDW has provided us with an early look at the issue by John Barber, Chee and Livio Ramondeli, which you can preview past the cut.From IDW's official solicitation info:

In the dark days of the war for Cybertron, THUNDERCRACKER had a special mission-one never revealed before! Now, as he faces off against BUMBLEBEE for the first time, the fate of METROPLEX-and an entire civilization-is at stake!
