Previews World has gotten some time with IDW's John Barber. Having recently stepped down from his editorial job, Barber will continue to be writing for the Transformers with the launch of the new Optimus Prime
title. The interview recaps the end of Revolution a bit, and tries to explain why Optimus Prime is getting a self-titled comic series, offering some insight toward the focus we can expect from the book. We have an excerpt below, and keep reading for a link to the original article.
RIPT Apparel, who you may know for their revolving door of short run t-shirt designs will soon be offering their own exclusive variant cover for the first issue of Lost Light
, the successor title to More Than Meets The Eye
. Artist Tim Lim has produced this cover which homages the classic 1986 Transformers The Movie poster, with the various elements from this comic taking the starring roles. Click through now to get a good look at the cover art!
Coming out Wednesday this week is the final IDW Transformers comic to carry the More Than Meets The Eye
title. The Revolution tie-in one shot features the arrival of the Scavengers on Earth for a mission of critical importance! What could possibly go right
? We will, of course, have our review up first early this week for you to read, and in the meantime you can continue on to the full article below for the solicit text and preview pages, via Newsarama!
The first preview of Transformers: Lost Light
#1 is now up on iTunes! The "third season" of More Than Meets The Eye
pairs writer James Roberts with artist Jack Lawrence and is due out sometime this month. Exactly as you might expect, this three-page preview gives no indication as to how the cliffhanger from the end of The Dying Of The Light
will be resolved. But it does introduce some new characters! Keep reading to see it.
A great resource for new readers, the profiles in the back of the Revolution
miniseries have provided summaries of the state of the IDW Hasbroverse while also including some great new art. Continuing our coverage of Revolution
#5, Sara Pitre-Durocher has posted her artwork for the Windblade profile in this issue! Keep reading to check it out!
The conclusion to IDW's Revolution
epic is out at comic stores today, and one of the highlights for me was Guido Guidi's fantastic alternate cover showing G2 Sideswipe paired with a very Spawn
-esque Snake Eyes. Guido has shared the image to Twitter, so now you can see for yourself. Keep reading to see the cover, mirrored here for your convenience!
We've got the full-length preview of the final chapter in Revolution,
the first chapter in the IDW Hasbro Shared Universe! Optimus Prime and his Autobots (and friends!) take on the fusion of Baron Karza and the Dire Wraiths, sworn enemies of the Micronauts and ROM: Spaceknight. Keep reading to see!
Released digitally along with today's Till All Are One
#5 is an extended preview of More Than Meets The Eye: Revolution
, due in shops ...well, we aren't entirely sure now, but probably soon! Featuring The Scavengers visiting Earth at a perhaps less-than-opportune moment and stumbling in to some corner of the major event crossover already in progress. It's all go in the final book planned to carry the title of More Than Meets The Eye
! Keep reading to see the full preview!
with proper credit for the Megatron cover! Twitter user @inkybauds has posted two more alternate covers for Transformers: Lost Light
#1! First up for the More Than Meets The Eye
continuation is a graffiti-themed cover featuring Rodimus, Megatron, and Nautica by Sara Pitre-Durocher
, one she says is part of a series of five which are designed to work together. The second one, showing Megatron in a cape in a very statesmanlike portrait, is by Sonny Liew
. Keep reading to see them both!
Not present in the Newsarama preview we posted a few days ago,
comics site The Outhousers has posted their preview of Transformers: Till All Are One
#5, which includes this lovely alternate cover by Priscilla Tramontano. It's fantastic and well worth its own newspost, so keep reading to check it out!
A DATE WTH DESTINY! After years of doing very little, Krok, Crankcase, Fulcrum, Spinister, and Misfire think they can wriggle out of anything -- but not even they can avoid a heavily-promoted multi-franchise crossover. It’s the Scavengers Versus Your Childhood in a story that exposes all other art for the sham it is.
LAST STAND IN AUTOBOT CITY! It’s all come to this --TRANSFORMERS vs. ROM vs. MICRONAUTS vs. G.I. JOE vs. M.A.S.K. vs. the ultimate evil! The futures of Earth, Cybertron, and the Microverse will all be changed forever by the decisions made this day.
While you'll be waiting another four months or so to get your hands on Unite Warriors Baldigus, you've got some light and, if you're not Japanese, confusing
reading for you in the meantime. If you've been following the Unite Warriors comics to date you can probably
guess how exactly they get brought into that series' continuity. Autobase Aichi has prepared individual image files from the TakaraTomyMall PDF, and we've mirrored them here. Keep reading to see!
IDW included a little something extra with the digital release of the latest Micronauts issue, released this Wednesday: a preview for the upcoming Optimus Prime
#1! While we were treated to an early look at the first page a little while back, this is our first glimpse at fully completed interiors with dialogue. With now several pages in hand, I feel safe in saying the already promising artistic team of Kei Zama and Josh Burcham is one of the best match ups I've seen in IDW's Transformers titles. Optimus Prime
#1 is expected on shelves on November 30th. Keep reading to see the preview!
For those eager to catch up with the ongoing story of the quest for the Knights of Cybertron, and all the mutinies, planet-shattering kabooms, and whatever else that lay along that path, we have good news! By way of the announcement of a signing event by Orbital Comics in London, we now know the (planned) release date for Lost Light
#1. Writer James Roberts has verified the publication date of December 14, two days prior to the signing which will feature Roberts and first issue artist Jack Lawrence. So just under a month until More Then Meets The Eye
's successor kicks off!
