Coming to us from Newsarama we have the first look at the full length preview for next week's issue of The Transformers
, #56. Originally intended to ship before this month's issue of More Than Meets The Eye
... well, sometimes things just don't work out. But this should hopefully bring everything together and up to speed, and be welcome by those who chose to wait and read the issues in the correct order! We have the preview mirrored in our gallery below, so click through to have a look.
Simon Furman has gotten in touch with us to talk about To The Death
, a new collaboration between Furman and fellow Transformers comics veteran Geoff Senior. While not directly Transformers-related, the digital comic is set to feature "a digital comic book saga set in Earths future that echoes the hard-edged sci-fi of Dragons Claws and Deaths Head (both of which we co-created) and some of the heavy mech of Transformers"
according to Furman. Keep reading for more info, art, and some preview pages!
Coming in a little bit different format this time around, we actually have our first look at the solicitations for November's Transformers-related comics from IDW themselves! Alas this does deprive of us the full size cover previews we're used to in the catalog-style format IDW offers them in, we do have blurbs and a few
decent size cover previews for the titles including Optimus Prime
#1, More Than Meets The Eye: Revolution
#1, Till All Are One
#5, and the final issue of Revolution
itself! We've mirrored the relevant pages and sections, spo click through and have a look.
Earlier today we brought you a look at the early iTunes preview for issue 56 of The Transformers
, due in shops on August 31st. Now via Previews World, we have our first look at the subscription variant cover, drawn by artist Casey Coller, featuring an appearance by GI Joe's Scarlett, and an Alpha Trion looking like he's getting ready for his toy tie in! You can get a look at the cover below, and stay with us for the full preview and review of the issue later this month.
TITANS RETURN! Following the literally-Earth-shattering events of last issue... OPTIMUS PRIME establishes a new base of operations - AUTOBOT CITY! Its first visitor: a newly-revived SENTINEL PRIME, who sees a potential ally in OPTIMUS.
Thomas Deer has shared the clean art for his cover for the just-released Transformers: Till All Are One
#3! The cover, which shows Starscream manipulating pieces on a chessboard (including Windblade and the colony worlds), represents his first solo work for IDW, where he usually works as a colorist. Keep reading to see!
Josh Burcham has shared the clean art for his alternate cover for this week's issue of MTMTE! For this installment of the Titans Return crossover, we get Fortress Maximus and Prowl sharing a friendly staredown on Luna 1. Keep reading to see!
Next week sees More Than Meets The Eye
56 hit shops! Newsarama has posted the early full preview for the issue so you can go ahead and have a look at its first few pages. But reader beware, as reportedly the publishing order of this and The Transformers
56 was reversed, leading to the recap summary on the credits page to have at least one significant spoiler! So in any case maybe avoid that recap, but otherwise keep reading to check it out below!
Coming next week we have two new Transformers comics, and we're starting off with the preview for the next issue of Till All Are One
, coming to us early by way of Newsarama. You can go ahead and check out the first few pages mirrored in our gallery below, and be back with us early next week to find the full review of the issue, first right here on TFormers! WINDBLADE TURNS TRAITOR?! With the rise of the COMBATICON threat, STARSCREAM issues an ultimatum to WINDBLADE: do his-or everyone on Cybertron will learn her darkest secrets!
TITANS RETURN! On Luna 1, nothing ever happens-and as far as FORTRESS MAXIMUS and RED ALERT are concerned, nothing ever will. After all, who else could possibly be interested in the Luna 1's birthing field and its graveyard full of dead Titans? - Read on to see the preview now.
To get the ball rolling, IDW has released the prelude story to the Revolution crossover event as a free digital download from their website. This story which has run in two parts as the backup strip for the main Transformers titles, as well as being available in full as a freebie during San Diego Comic Con serves to establish a brief history of the new parties that are being incorporated in to the universe where we previously have only been aware of the actions of the Transformers. Keep reading to find the link to download issue #0!
The Revolution event is set to create a shared fictional universe within the IDW comics for many of its Hasbro-property titles (My Little Pony
thus far having been inexplicably not included), and while the first issue of this crossover isn't due to ship until next month, Comic Book Resources has already managed to get a preview up of Revolution
#1, from which everything else will jump off. Just beware, it does seem to allude to not-insignificant spoilers for some things not yet published, so proceed with that caution before checking it out in our gallery below!
Amazon has posted a pair of new Transformers titles for preorder. Titans Return
will be getting its own collected volume in January 2017, featuring the self-titled one shot issue, and isses 56 and 57 of The Transformers
and More Than Meets The Eye
. Just prior in December, Till All Are One
gets its first TPB out, collecting its first four issues. Keep reading for the cover previews and product links!
Fresh out of the iTunes store today we have the first look inside issue 3 of Till All Are One
, featuring the ongoing story of the happenings on Cybertron while the other monthlies hang around Earth and deep space. These pages kick right off by addressing some stuff from way back in the first Windblade
miniseries as the "Swindle Lives!" storyline pushes forward. The issue is expected in shops on August 17th. Keep reading for the preview pages!
That is to say, they're using IDW's comics to decorate the set of Transformers 5: The Last Knight
. The official Transformers Instagram gave us a look inside one of the drawers on-set, and what should we find in there but a stack of IDW comics? Now, if we can just get the writers and production crew to read
them... click through to see comics in a drawer!
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!
