Finally, before the Dying of The Light, it was movie night on The Lost Light
, and that's where the preview for Titans Return
opens. Our last comic preview from Nerdspan is for the one shot that sets up the Titans Return event storyline, just before Revolution comes in to one up it in the crossover arena. MTMTE fans, be at ease, as these pages provide no spoilers at all for the events of Dying of The Light, so you carry no risk if you choose to read this first. We've got the preview pages below, so click through to get started!
Our second of three previews coming to us by way of Nerdspan tonight is More Than Meets The Eye
#55. The Dying of The Light finally wraps up, and given some of the reveals out of San Diego Comic Con, it looks like this might be quite an ending indeed. MTMTE shifts in to Titans Return for its next two issues before having a quick break before its post-Revolution relaunch later in the year. We have the preview pages below, so keep reading - but as always beware of spoilers!
Coming via Nerdspan we have the full length preview for next week's issue of The Transformers
. Issue 55 is the conclusion of the All Hail Optimus story right before we go quickly to the next major event crossovers! Boy, this comic sure can keep busy. It seems also that the short iTunes preview skipped quite a few
pages, some of which indeed may have held important story info - or maybe that preview was geared to simply cut right to bigger action. In any case, if you can't wait to see a bit more, click through to check out the new preview pages leading right in to the iTunes preview!
Hasbro and IDW are giving away a neat little catalog/pamphlet/comic at Comic-Con this year. Entitled "Titans Return: The Power Of The Titan Masters," it has a series of two-page spreads on the various Titans Return characters and toys along with detailed information on their powers and abilities. Among the more interesting things to be seen is Terri-Bull fighting with Skullsmasher under the name "Rot-Gut." Keep reading to see photos of the comic!
G.I. JOE, M.A.S.K., and Other New Titles Explode Out of Septembers Bi-Weekly Event Series
San Diego, CA (July 21, 2016) This September, the 5-part bi-weekly REVOLUTION will forever impact the future of Transformers, G.I. Joe, ROM, Micronauts, Action Man, and M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, establishing a cohesive comic book universe for all these characters and titles. Spinning out of those universe-defining events, multiple exciting new Hasbro-licensed titles will follow shortly thereafter to pick up the story where Revolution leaves off.
Comics Alliance has posted a new interview with John Barber, James Roberts, and Mairghread Scott to follow up on the IDW panel at Comic Con! We get some more news about the post-Revolution Transformers world, and foremost in that news is a pair of name changes: The Transformers
is now Optimus Prime
, and More Than Meets The Eye
is now Lost Light. Till All Are One
seems to keep its title - but that means it gets two #1 issues in the same year! Keep reading for more details. SPOILER WARNING
: The cover to Lost Light
may reveal some spoilers about next week's issue of MTMTE!
We've got the latest round of comic solicitations straight from Previews World, and this October, the Revolution event will be in full swing! The Transformers
and Till All Are One
begin their "Revolution" renumbering... but interestingly, More Than Meets The Eye
is nowhere to be seen for the month of October! Plus issues 4 and 5 of Revolution
will keep filling in the overarching storyline that ties in to all the other franchise books. Keep reading for cover previews and blurbs for the Transformers-relevant issues.
Coming very soon to a comic shop near you is the conclusion of The Dying of The Light in More Than Meets The Eye
issue 55. iTunes has the customary early, brief preview, and this one pulls no punches with giving away the plot. The very first page reveals a heck of a lot, so if you're wary about any sort of spoilers, you might wish to exercise extra caution with this one! But if you just have to know right now, come in and take a look. And then be back early next week when we bring you the first review online!
New in from the iTunes store, we have our first look at interior pages from the final chapter of All Hail Optimus with The Transformers
issue 55. However, it looks like we're not getting the typical first three pages, since this preview is picking up somewhere mid-action! As has been seen before, that's usually done to preserve more spoiler-sensitive content, so it may be that an earlier page gives away something important. The issue is expected to be in shops in July 27th, and we'll have the review first right here on TFormers. Keep reading to check out the preview.
PreviewsWorld has posted a new interview with Fico Ossio, the IDW artist behind the upcoming Revolution
event that will tie all Hasbro properties together into a single shared universe. Ossio explains his role in the project - including some redesign work on the Transformers - while also singing the praises of IDW's creative working environment. Keep reading for excerpts from the interview and a link to the full article.
Almost two years after the publication of the last installment of IDW's Transformers Classics
reprint collection of Marvel UK comics, we have word on volume six! From a new Amazon listing, we can expect Transformers Classics UK
Vol.6 in January of 2017. The collection is not listed with a price and is not in fact available to order at this time, but it does indicate the volume to have 368 pages - 72 pages longer than the previous two volumes. No word on what specific issues will be featured, but it sounds like there'll be room for plenty! Keep reading for a link to the Amazon listing.
THE LAST AUTOBOT! Once he ruled CYBERTRON with a brutal (and literal) iron fist... left for dead four million years ago, SENTINEL PRIME is back. But in a world where STARSCREAM rules CYBERTON, OPTIMUS PRIME has invaded Earth, and MEGATRON is an AUTOBOT-SENTINEL doesn't like what he sees! After OPTIMUS is hailed; after the LIGHT dies... the next phase of TRANSFORMERS comics starts here!
With just a week left until San Diego Comic-Con, IDW and Top Shelf are officially unveiling their schedule for the weekend; including incredible signings, and must-see panels. Take note, because you wont want to miss any of the fun at the booth, or your first look at exciting new projects on the panels!
In a surprising piece of news, IDW has issued a press release announcing that John Barber will no longer be an editor for the company. While he remains with IDW as a writer and reportedly will continue on The Transformers
, he is also mentioned as being involved with two unannounced comics related to the Revolution
shared Hasbro universe. Keep reading for more details.
Following the original press release posted a few days ago. IDW have released new images for their 2016 San Diego Comic Con exclusives.
One we have not seen is the limited edition poster to celebrate the launch of their Revoltuion series. Where, we see many of the Hasbro properties converge in sort of Universe of their own.
The lithograph features the Revolution scene with logo is limited to $300 copies for a price of $10 USD. Read on to see the Revolution poster details and small image along with other Revolution images, for reference.

Thanks to Newsarama we have the first look at the full length preview of next week's Till All Are One
#2, including the opening couple pages that iTunes left out! And seeing the material in question, it was most likely to prevent spoiling particular events from last month's issue. You can as always come back early next week to find the issue reviewed first on TFormers, and click through now to take a look at the preview.
With the final issue of Transformers vs GI Joe
out in shops this week (and our review of that issue can be found right here
), Newsarama spent some time chatting with the book's main writer, artist, colorist, and as we've liked to joke, probably bookbinder and papermaker as well, Tom Scioli.
It's a whopper of an interview touching on a great deal of subjects spinning out of the initial subject of issue #13 of Transformers vs GI Joe
. We've included some brief excerpts, so click through to read that and find a link to the original article!
