Fan favorite artist Nick Roche has been doing alternate covers for Transformers: Lost Light
around the them of characters literally lost in space. Yesterday, Roche posted clean art, both in lineart and color form, for Lost Light
#6! This time, we have a whole bunch
of characters in space, but they're not looking lost anymore. Keep reading to get a good look at Roche's inking skills on the black and white lineart, plus colors by Josh Burcham!
So when you look at this, do you focus on the spidery legs - Airachnid? Blackarachnia? Tarantulas, fresh off his appearance in Sins of the Wreckers
? - or do you focus on Onslaught and Blast Off? Whatever drew your eye first, Till All Are One
artist Sara Pitre-Durocher has posted some looks at the making of the cover, including several sketch passes where the pose of the Combaticons was refined, and a color test! Keep reading to see!
Having gone without since 2012, IDW's Transformers line gets a new annual! Pushed back from its originally planned February publication, the 47 page one shot is expected in shops and online on March 8 for $7.99. iTunes has the early preview up which you can find below! GHOST STORIES! Optimus Prime returns to Cybertron -- only to be confronted by his rival for the Matrix, Pyra Magna! As Pyra's origin -- before she was part of Victorion -- is finally revealed, Optimus relives his own past -- the first time he met Bumblebee!
Just in this morning via Previews World, we've got a look at the upcoming Transformers titles heading to shop this May. Till All Are One
looks toward settling business with one of the lost tribes that just isn't playing nice with the rest of the class, Optimus Prime
vaguely spoils the conclusion to its prior issue, and Lost Light
makes uncertain allusions to perhaps a great deal of death that probably doesn't really happen! Full summaries and cover previews below, so keep reading - just be careful as some of this could spoil other unreleased issues!
On Functionist Cybertron, Rodimus and Megatron's group head to... Cyberutopia? The quest couldn't be that simple, could it? No, of course not. Dissolution, Part 3: A World Displaced
is written by James Roberts with art by Jack Lawrence and colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to read the review!
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

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!
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!

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!
