"If you want to break someone-mentally, physically, emotionally-wait until they're happy. Let them live and love and thrive. Once they recognize the value of a life well lived... THAT'S when you move in for the kill. Because you can't take anything from someone who has nothing to lose." --Tarn
•The hunt for MEGATRON continues!
•The Decepticon Justice Division will stop at nothing to bring the former Decepticon leader down!
...what? ...I mean, what?
Just when you thought there was nothing left Tom Scioli and John Barber could do that would be a total
shock, Comics Alliance reports that Transformers vs. GI Joe ends with the next issue, #13. While the statement from Scioli is positive and upbeat, no indication was previously given that this critically acclaimed book was to be a limited series - and indeed, Scioli and Barber once said they could envision the comic continuing indefinitely. What happened? Keep reading for Scioli and Barber's statements on the end of the comic. UPDATED
with new alternate cover for the final issue.
We all know the scene: "Megatron must be stopped, no matter the cost," The Touch
, etc. ...but what if Kup managed to put a foot on Hot Rod and let Optimus Prime fight his own battles? The history of G1 branches off in Transformers: Deviations
, written by Brandon M. Easton with art by Priscilla Tramontano and colors by Tramontano and John-Paul Bove! Continue to the review!
Our double dose of upcoming comic previews by way of Newsarama finishes out with a look at issue 51 of The Transformers
, continuing the All Hail Optimus story. Heavy is the head the wears the crown, a truth that it seems even Optimus Prime can't escape even within these initial few pages seen in the preview! We'll have the review for you first here on TFormers next week ahead of the issue's release next Wednesday, and until then you can click through to take a look at the preview pages we've mirrored.
Newsarama is at it again bringing out an early look at the preview for the one-shot Transformers: Deviations
out next week. This comic asks the age-old question, what if Optimus Prime didn't die? Something that the long time fans have debated over for many years. When it hits shops next Wednesday, we may have one possible answer! And we'll have the review of the issue for you first here on TFormers. Keep reading to check out the mirrored preview pages!
Today on Twitter, series co-writer and artist Tom Scioli put up clean artwork of the cover to issue 13 of Transformers vs GI Joe
, due out ...at some point in the nebulous future. Scioli subsequently tweeted just the base pencil work for the cover art, albeit mirror-flipped as can be evidenced by the reversed signature. Or does Tom Scioli naturally write his name backwards, and it is then merely flipped for the sake of the general readership? The world may never know, but you can all the same check out that cover art below!
Via his Twitter, Alex Milne gave fans of IDW's Transformers titles a nice treat by posting the clean, original artwork featured across several issues of The Transformers
and More Than Meets The Eye
featuring the casts of both books. While he was able to post a full copy of the uncolored lines, the completed version with colors by Josh Perez was apparently too much for Twitter to handle, and was split in to three chunks. We have those separate portions mirrored and we've embedded the tweet with the linework - keep reading to see it all!
By way of Newsarama we have the early preview up for next week's 50th issue of More Than Meets The Eye
, featuring several pages not present in the earlier iTunes short preview which more set up the story being launched. Of course as usual, these contents could be a bit spoilery for the issue, so be aware before you decide to go reading. And if you're okay with that, you can click through now and check out the mirrored pages!
With the issue 50 milestone upon us, The Transformers
writer John Barber is continuing making the interview rounds, this time talking to Newsarama about the origins of All Hail Optimus, and what it means for everyone who's found themselves involved with the annexation of Earth, one way or the other. Be warned, the interview does contain spoilers for the issue. We've included a spoiler-free excerpt below, you can click through to check that out and then if you like you can follow a link below to read the full article.

There have been rumors that Unicron would show up in ever new Transformers TV series and movies that comes around. However, this time the Planet Eater has shown up in a rather unlikely place under the pen of the Godzilla artist Matt Frank! And what a look he's given this fellow along with what is a whole show dedicated to GIANT robots at the Austin, Texus Guzu Gallery. Read on to see Matt's take on the giantest robot of them all and more info.
On the cover to the most recent issue of Transformers vs. GI Joe, which we reviewed here
, Duke is displayed on the cover holding a gun in one hand and a snake in the other. But sometimes a snake is not just a snake: as we learned today, Tom Scioli had Duke smoking a cigar. No word is given as to why it was changed, but considering it's pretty difficult for other such merchandising icons as Wolverine to get their hands on a smoke anymore, it's not difficult to figure out. Keep reading to see the original cover!
MTMTE #50 has been delayed for a few weeks until March 9th, but work is already well underway for issue #51! For example, Ex-RID/The Transformers artist Andrew Griffith has posted his cover for that issue, both in bare lineart and with colors by Joana Lafuente. The cover depicts Tarn, leader of the Decepticon Justice Division, and he's got some Energon on him - and it's probably not his. Keep reading to see the image up close!
