    Although it's fair to say there's little about the issue that's breaking new ground, any Transformers fan who picks up the comic should find something to like -- even if that's just the artwork by Robby Musso, who delivers some chunky, expressive robots set against an atypically (for a Transformers book) organic landscape. If you're a dedicated Transformers fan, you'll be pleased, and if you're just dipping in, it should scratch the itch. Ultimately, you can't complain when a comic achieves that much. Read Full Review

    Despite some shortcomings, Transformers Spotlight: Cliffjumper is a self-contained excerpt from the war between Autobots and Decepticons. The action is great and brutal and the Cliffjumper is portrayed in a believable and appropriate manner in both his words and his actions. While this story may not seem worth the money for $3.99, I hope to see more of these stories and maybe even a trade collecting these tales. This is a perfect title for any hardcore Transformers fan, but casual readers may not see the worth and may want to invest their money in other Transformers titles. Read Full Review

    While I liked Blur's spotlight better(although that one was not perfect either), this issue was the more emotionally potent one, but it could have been more better executed.

    As a person, who does not have any experience with Cliffjumper, I can say that the issue gives a good sense of who the character is. Which is pretty much the most important thing about a spotlight issue. Cliffjumper can be caring, sweet, considered, generally a very chill guy and all that is shown very well in this issue right here, but also he does not take too much pride in what he does like hurting other cybertronians but knowing that he is part of the "good guys" calms him. Still it's does not go too deep, but there were some interesting moments here as more
