Part two of next week's comic previews from Newsarama's early release is Lost Light
issue 3, as the Functionist Universe Saga continues onward. With squealing. And also rather a bit of revelation about exactly what seems to be going on in these first few pages, so if you are spoiler sensitive on that front, it may be best to wait until later before giving this a look. In any case, you can expect our review up early next week, so be sure to look forward to that. Click through for the full preview!
Next Wednesday brings us a pair of new Transformers comic releases, and it looks like Newsarama went out early today with the previews. First up is Optimus Prime
#4, featuring Alex Milne on interior art, which marks a reunion of sorts between him and series colorist Josh Burcham, who together produced the art for the first "season" of More Than Meets The Eye
. The preview pages are mirrored below, keep reading to have a look, and be back early next week for our review!
NEW CYBERTRON! Optimus Prime struggles to unite the Junkions, Cybertronians, and humans - but will diplomacy be scuttled when the Junkion's secret comes out?
Orders, kind gestures and pleas for mercy - all things that WHIRL finds it very easy to ignore. Right now, he wishes he could turn a blind eye to the freshly resuscitated monster who - somewhat inconveniently - is determined to beat him to death. Meanwhile - a long way away -one of the Transformers Universe's longest-running mysteries is about to be solved...
By way of Amazon, we have a preorder listing and publication date for Lost Light
's first collected volume. The trade for the first six issues of the rebranded More Than Meets The Eye
is due on October 24, for the standard price of $19.99 - though naturally Amazon's own price is a bit lower. Keep reading for the solicit blurb and a link to the order page. And of course check out our reviews of the currently released Lost Light #1
and Lost Light #2
If Elita-One won't allow Carcer to fight the Undead Titans, Windblade will go and ask herself. Thus begins a daring raid to gain access to the Titan's brain module... but the first minds that Windblade's team have to contend with are the fine military minds of Strika and Obsidian. "Desperate Measures" is written by Mairghread Scott with art by Sara Pitre-Durocher and color by Joana Lafuente. Click here to read the review!
IDW Publishing tweeted an image of the cover to the upcoming one-shot The Transformers vs GI Joe: The Movie
comic book. The official comic book adaptation of the (non-existent) movie adaptation of the original comic book, this offers a brand new adventure that surely defies any prediction given Tom Scioli is still at the helm, and - as RAC often humorously remarked - probably doing everything up to and including milling the paper himself to see this last story produced. We've mirrored the cover image, click through to take a look!
Newsarama has the full length preview for next Wednesday's issue 7 of Till All Are One
, which from the pages presented show that we can look forward to the return of Starscream's precision strategic weapon system - Devastator, having been sent to give the Cybertronian strike force a decisive advantage. At least until he meets Strika, apparently! We'll have the review for you early next week, and right now we have the mirrored preview for you to view; see it in the gallery below!
Between motion comics, fan performances, and the original comic, here's been a lot of official and unofficial renditions of the introduction of Skids in More Than Meets The Eye
#2. Now, a fan has taken it upon themselves to animate the scene for the first time! Trunchbull, also known as @shokveyv on Twitter, has posted the sequence to YouTube, and it looks really good. Click through to see the video!
Rodimus & Megatron and their crew are trapped in a universe where the Functionist Council reigns supreme! ...but not all of the crew. Some are back on the Necroworld trying to cope with a small army of disoriented, time-displaced, and occasionally quite surly Cybertronians... as well as their own tempers. Transformers: Lost Light
#2 is written by James Roberts with art by Jack Lawrence and colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to go to the review!
Just in via CBR, is an exclusive, extended preview of the Transformers: Lost Light #2 Comic Book coming to shops next week. Rodimus and Co. find themselves in a dangerous place. Even more dangerous than on a planet that exploded from the inside. Thats already pretty dangerous. But where they are now? Oh boy.
Comixology is holding a sale on IDW's Transformers Spotlight series! The one-shots are .99 each and cover a very broad range of characters and points in time for IDW, with the most recent round happening around 2013. That last set in particular has some excellent material such as Nick Roche's Spotlight: Megatron
and James Roberts & Matt Frank's Spotlight: Trailcutter
, which could well be the
best introduction to More Than Meets The Eye/Lost Light
there is. Keep reading for a link to the sale!
Currently listed as hitting shops on February 22nd, we have new variant covers for the upcoming issues of both Optimus Prime
and Lost Light
. Two new covers have been shown over at Previews World for Lost Light
issue 3, and one additional for Optimus Prime
issue 4. Along with that, we've learned that More Than Meets The Eye
artist Alex Milne will be handling interior art duties for Optimus Prime
#4. Meanwhile, expect Lost Light
#3 to be delayed - issue 2 doesn't come out until Feb. 1, so 3 is likely to be pushed back as well. Click through to see the images!
Later in the month than usual, we've finally got word via Previews World of what to expect in the realm of Transformers comics for the month of April. Lost Light
continues its alternate universe adventure, Optimus Prime
moves towards wrapping up the Junkion story arc, and Till All Are One
goes back to deal with a problem that's been waiting for a while. Full solicits are below along with the usual cover images. Keep reading!
PreviewsWorld has posted a synopsis and cover for Till All Are One
#9! This issue takes place after the current story arc, so the blurb we've put after the jump will include SPOILERS.
But a good close look at the excellent main cover by TAAO regular artist Sara Pitre-Durocher should give you a good idea of what the comic is about anyway. Keep reading to see!
PEACE IN OUR TIME! STARSCREAM and WINDBLADE have given everything to bring together CYBERTRON's Lost Colonies into a Council Of Worlds. But when the increasingly brutal tactics of STARSCREAM's secret police increase tension among the former DECEPTICONS... how long can the Council maintain this fragile peace?
The European publication Licensing Magazine
has posted the contents of its latest issue online, and features a half page article about Transformers related merchandise. Among this is word of a new every-other-month Transformers comic from Panini. While the article does not outright specify what continuity it falls in to, the details provided line up with some of the setting information we've heard about the third season of Robots in Disguise
- but being a movie year, it can't be ruled out that the description might be inspired in some way by The Last Knight
. We've copied the relevant page which you can see below. Be mindful of possible (mild) spoilers!
Next week will bring us new comics - or at least comic
in the Transformers realm, and we have another early Friday preview from Newsarama for Optimus Prime
issue 3. Lost Light
which had been originally indicated as shipping alongside has since been bumped back to the first week of February. As usual, you can catch our review of OP #3 early next week, where we're sure to learn all about Thundercracker's love of Hawaiian shirts - but until then, keep reading to see the preview pages!
