NOTES

The new take on Arcee and Jhiaxus was originally developed by Simon Furman and Alex Milne in Spotlight: Arcee.

Simon Reeves continued to explore Arcee's origins in The Shape Of Things To Come.

As was already explained, the origins of this version of Arcee are a metaphor for sexual abuse: we tried to stay true to this delicate theme.

Art for Jhiaxus.

And who might be Arcee's sisters? One is revealed in Short Story: A New Beginning.

Jhiaxus' mansion is named after the flagship commanded by his G2 counterpart in Marvel Comics: the Twilight.

Panel 11: the answer to Arcee's question can be found in SoD: Omega Supreme. She actually spent metacycles in stasis lock: the Age of Nova Prime came to an end, the Supreme Interregnum followed and finally the Age Of Sentinel Prime began.

Panel 13: this story is a crossover with another SoD spin-off, the Constant Moons saga. See Constant Moons: Paradise Lost for the origins of the Junkions and the reason of their hate for Jhiaxus.

Arcee is not the first of Jhiaxus' "failed" experiments to be thrown in the Junklands, as seen in page 5 of SoD: Paradise Lost.

And finally, what does Arcee dream of, while she is offline? The answer can be found in the unmatched saga of Arcee In Wonderland, by Koen Luyten!

(What's that bunny doing in panel 13? Looks like a fragment of Arcee's dream was dragged into this reality!)

Original (official) concept for the Junkion Shaman.

Arcee will look for an answer to her condition in Short Story: The Answer.

"The Beauty And The Beast" is part of the collection of tales related to the Nova Prime age: see all of them (plus the amazing cover) in Special Story: The Evil That Mechs Do.

Arcee's previous life (and identity) are described in Short Story: The Shape Of Things To Come.

More Arcee in Short Story: The Answer.

Arcee's saga ends in Revelation (the last chapter, Spotlight: Sideswipe, shows Arcee taking her revenge on Jhiaxus).
